I know, I know. We’re basically the last people on top of the Xbone dogpile. But if we didn’t say it in this episode, then people would be asking us what we thought. On a related note: This is why I didn’t have a column this week. It felt strange to have a column that didn’t address the BIG STORY of the week, but at the same time there was nothing left that hadn’t been said a hundred times already. So I said nothing.
This gig is odd, sometimes.

Josh is playing Hitman: Absolution.

SimCity XBox One.
We will be doing a hangout this Friday, May 31st at 4:30pm pacific time. (10:30pm GMT.) We’ll have links to the stream closer to when the event goes live.
