Episode Notes

It’s a jam-packed episode this week, as we’re joined by Jonathan’s brother Thomas, fresh off an entire year spent in Japan, to discuss a week’s worth of news, a whole lotta stuff, and a very silly surprise topic at the end. First, we talk a bit more about Jonathan watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and take a look back at the original Genndy Tartakovsky’s original Clone Wars from 2003. We also give updates on some games we’re playing, including the new Hatsune Miku for Switch, before diving into the news, which brought us announcements for Paper Mario: The Origami King and a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater remake, in addition to a big 20-minute display of Sony’s upcoming samurai game Ghost of Tsushima, which looks incredible, and Epic’s unveiling of Unreal Engine 5 with an insanely impressive tech demo. And finally, Thomas a lifelong Sonic the Hedgehog fan, invites us to discuss one of the stranger corners of the Sonic universe by doing live readings and ranking all the ‘Knuckles Raps’ from the Sonic Adventure games (we promise it’ll make more sense when you listen to the full episode).
