Episode 289...recorded out of order and live from Dan's livingroom, complete with some background noise!  A little quieter for the recording of the main segment which was well after Nibblebits, Our Weeks, What We Played and Feedback.  Corey nicely covers Resident Evil 7 having played it almost to completion, and the newly released Fire Emblem Heroes is briefly covered during What We Played.
