Dan and Corey cover the newest game from Supergiant, a hybrid sports-rpg game called Pyre.  It's kind of a different offering from Supergiant, but retains their typically fabulous artwork and soundtrack.  After the episode we continue our Game of Thrones recaps, this time talking about season 7 episode 4: The Spoils of War.

I gave everyone the week off for 'Merica day this week, which was convenient since Corey and Will are out of town and we just passed the mid year point.  Like last year I played a brief clip of the episodes we recorded on some of the bigger game releases from this year like Resident Evil 7, Mass Effect Andromeda, Horizon Zero Dawn and Breath of the Wild.
