We once again decided to go a different direction to our "listicles" that used to do a lot of...so like our Favorite Game Characters series, we started a Favorite Boss Battles series.  There's some obvious choices in there, like Kefka from Final Fantasy 6, but also some that may surprise.  During "What We Played" Will gives his final thoughts on Mass Effect Andromeda.

Though this generation of consoles doesn't necessarily have the heavy hitters like last gen, there's still plenty of quality new IP's that came out this gen.  Some even already have sequels of their own, like Destiny, Titanfall, and The Division.  We also decided not to cover indie titles...which if you've listened for awhile, you know there are plenty.

 

After the outro this week, our Game of Thrones recap resume now that Season 8 has FINALLY started airing.  This week we cover Episode 1: Winterfell starting at 1:42:28 of the episode if you want to skip ahead!

The final season of Game of Thrones is upon us, so Dan uses the opportunity to discuss some of the games (and mods for other games) that involve our favorite fantasy universe.  From Telltale's Game of Thrones to the excellent Crusader Kings 2 mod, we cover everything worth talking about.  Also in this episode we discuss trouble at BioWare, Assassins Creed Origins, and some more Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Since Val played Super Mario Sunshine last Sunday for this week's Rookie Camp video, we decided it was a good time to retroactively review it.  How well does it hold up?  How did it review when it actually came out 16 years ago?  How does one access Super Mario Sunshine today?  All answered this week, along with some discussion of Borderlands 3, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Assassin's Creed Origins.
