This week we use a chain to fight the power, try to figure out what’s going on with Chris Redfield’s face, check out a ton of new PS5 games, discuss the role of police in games and visit the ugliest castle in video game history.

It’s not just TV and movies that have problems with their portrayals of cops. Games have a long history of showing cops as selfless, honorable heroes.

Chris, buddy, you doing alright?


The sound design in Clubhouse Games is possibly some of the best this generation. I love the way cards shuffle and dice rattle.



Thank you, I did enjoy this.


If you kneel in front of the cops while holding a special pearl in just the right spot, you unlock the ability to defund them.


Peach, you need to hire some interior decorators.

Is that an X-Wing I see....(It’s not.)

I wasn’t that interested in this game and now suddenly I want it very badly.

The Ratchet & Clank reboot on PS4 is one of the best action platformers made in the last decade. So I’m a little excited about this.

Death Stranding called, it’s suing you.

I’m going to give Wasteland 2 a second chance. I tried it once on console and I hated it. But maybe on PC...

Maybe we don’t need to save Peach from Bowser so much as save her from herself. The castle is just a symptom.
