I have two pieces of exciting news for you! The first is that Mumbles is on this week! The second is that Rutskarn isn’t!
Spoiler: The developer responded poorly.
10:00 Mumbles discusses Gotham.
19:00 Mumbles discusses John Wick.
The truth is that I go to see combat-oriented movies for the same reason other people go to the ballet: I love to see talented and athletic artists and inventive choreography. (If you’re curious, my favorite right now is IP Man with Donnie Yen. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched that movie. My favorite bit is the first fight. Nothing deadly. They aren’t trying to kill or even hurt each other. It’s just a really fun exchange that weaves character development into the fight itself.)
31:00 Josh is playing The Fall.

36:00 Ubisoft games vanished from Steam. Then returned.
Ubisoft sucks. Uplay sucks.
41:00 Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
I think we forget all about Star Wars in this segment for a bit and go on a tangent where we discover that everyone on the show is an oldest child.
49:00 GTA V for PC and new-gen consoles will have a first-person mode.
53:00 Destiny 2 is in development.
Here is a spoiler-free synopsis of the plot that is truly amazing…
1:02:00 Blizzard announces Overwatch.
