Booing the Boo-er

Episode 138,   Feb 15, 02:00 PM

Helldivers 2 is so good that it was tough not to stop this podcast and go play more of it, but we also managed to talk about demos for FF7 Rebirth and some Steam Next Fest fare like Balatro and Normal Fishing, Disney's $1.5 billion deal with Epic, the future of both PlayStation and Xbox, and more!
