Level 24 - Is Mario Racist

August 10, 2017

Cameron manages to return for two episodes in a row and the boys are tickled pink by the regularity. Marcus continues the Overwatch train, DJ keeps the fun going with Fortnite, Avery struggles with the Persona 5 platinum and Cam plays The Last of Us, Injustice and Just Cause 3 because he can. Jumping into the gaming news, the guys gush about Doomfist, DJ makes sense of Destiny's streaming news, Avery gets hyped for more Persona and Cam laments the fall of his favorite Bioware studio. Also this Amiibo news merits an actual discussion especially after last week's episode. In culture the gang takes a quick look at whether Mario is Racist and Japan's role in Representation before Avery is able to successfully plan and mount a successful game of Who Am I.
