Episode 83. April 2nd, 2017. We’ve got our first returning guest of the podcast, The Hug of War. He joins us again to discuss Mass Effect, since Andrew doesn’t play it at all which doesn’t help Mike. The two discuss the game’s pros and cons, things they liked and didn’t like, etc. The discussion evolves across a few topics, we touch on Oculus’ founder Palmer Luckey, video game accessory maker MadCatz’ recent bankruptcy filing, and Nintendo’s YouTube approach.
