As we're finding it harder and harder to find a gaming topic and are restructuring the show to make it flow better, we decided to create DLC Packs, evergreen content that we can release whenever. To be clear it won't replace Culture and Gaming topics on the show, but it'll allow us to devote more time to both the news section and the topic itself. Anyway, on one of the many days that Cam was absent Avery, DJ and Marcus got together to discuss their favorite games and some of the reasons they love gaming so much

Cam is once again missing in action and the boys of Press X stalwartly continue the show without his fire segways. Marcus finally finished a game, Avery both laments and praises his recent purchase of a Switch and DJ has a crisis of faith in regards to his time with the Destiny 2 Beta. In news the group bubbles over with excitement for Kingdom Hearts 3 news, show a big fat indifference to the Atari Box, discover the melee successor Icons(or in Avery's case wonder how a game devoid of the Nintendo IP will actually do to a mass audience), dissect the Bioware executive shakeup and once again get into another lengthy conversation about Mass Effect. Finally Telltale releases 3 game announcements and Avery get's himself banned from Who Am I. It's ESRB approved fun on the bun.
