Corey is back this week luckily, as his experience with Hearthstone is invaluable in evaluating Elder Scrolls Legends...the beta for the upcoming CCG from Bethesda.  During "What We Played" Eric briefly talks about No Man's Sky, without spoiling anything for those of us waiting to play it on PC.  Full episode on it next week!

We did some spoiler-free coverage of INSIDE last week, but it's an extremely difficult game to cover without talking about anything that happened in it.  This week we discuss the most common question hanging in people's minds after playing.....What's it all mean?

 

During What We Played we briefly cover the first couple hours of I am Setsuna and obviously talk some more about Pokemon Go.

Initially we had planned on devoting a full episode to Inside this week and covering Pokemon Go next week, but Inside is hard game to cover and talk much about without spoiling things for the player.  We each were able to get in enough time with Pokemon Go over the past few days that we decided to cover it this week also.
