The kazoos have been silenced, we swear. Glenn, Nik, and Tyler huddle up to understand how 25$ for a half-hour VR experience is supposed to be worth it, the inclusion (and exclusions) of World of Warcraft classic, and we take another whack at understanding just what the heck Death Stranding is. We are about hamsters in our balls as we outrun Kojima's metaphorical cat of video footage. 128 hours for a single Minecraft block? This is Casual Master Quest!
