Dan played GRIS finally and it inspired a discussion on some of the better examples of artistic games out there.  It's a topic that's very important to us, as we've been on team "Games are art" since the very beginning of this podcast.  Also GRIS was spectacular!

 

Later on we talk about the new Fire Emblem DLC Cindered Shadows.

That Pokemon-esque MMORPG Temtem finally hit Steam Early Access and Dan was all over it.  While there are certainly some similarities, the differences are what make it shine and help differentiate it from Pokemon.  Temtem up!

On the request of Tito, Dan and Eric (and Corey through the power of email) discuss elements of great videogames.  Is it graphics, gameplay, difficulty?  All of them?

 

Later on Eric talks about seeing Joker and 1917 and Dan played some Temtem.

So yeah, a new Dragon Ball Z game has come out and...it's pretty good.  If you're a DBZ fan of course, though some reviews say it holds up pretty well on it own.  Either way, Will...a big Dragon Ball fan played a pretty good amount over the past week and offers up his thoughts.

 

In other news Stardew Valley has sold 10 million copies, Dan beat Pokemon Sword, and Will is playing a buttload of WoW.
