Welcome to a new episode of our humble podcast! This week, we finally share our full opinions on the end result of BioWare's Mass Effect: Andromeda and remember that next week we're kicking off our community playthrough and discussion of the game with the GI Game Club. After that, Ben Reeves shares some early thoughts on the Shovel Knight prequel, Spectre of Torment, and we also recommend some good cases for your Nintendo Switch. Things take a turn for the astral after that, as Javy Gwaltney joins the podcast for a lively discussion about the new game called Everything on PS4. Then, we talk about Pokémon developer Game Freak, their new game Giga Wrecker, and their recent job opening for what appears to be a Pokémon game on console. After some great community emails, we're joined by vice president of Adult Swim Games Jeff Olsen and lead producer Chris Johnston to talk about the history of Adult Swim publishing games and what the industry looks like from their perspective.
