A little change of pace this week, talking about why we didn't purchase this year's Call of Duty.  Particularly Will and Eric, who usually make the Duty plunge, express their thoughts on why they didn't get it.

An XBox One exclusive for this week's episode in Sunset Overdrive.  It was described as a mix of Saint's Row, inFamous, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater....sounds like fun!
