Xander Morningstar came by and we all got really furious with excitement for Bowser's Fury before diving more into the announcement of Lucasfilm Games working with Bethesda and Ubisoft (because we always gotta touch on Star Wars), tossing out hopes and dreams and ideas for future Switch revisions, and then rounding out the talk by going into the NWR Hype Meter and putting John to sleep by talking RPGs.

Also, Neal demanded NHL 2021 season playoff predictions from Xander and John, who don't actually follow hockey at all. So to recap that, see below. Also there are timestamps so you can skip hockey if you want to. (note: the rough plan here is each person gets 1 point if one of their teams makes the playoffs; the "winner" isn't for winning the division in the regular season, it's for winning that division in the playoffs.)

Central Division

  • Xander: Columbus (winner), Florida, Dallas, Tampa Bay
  • John: Carolina (winner), Chicago, Detroit, Columbus
  • Neal: Tampa Bay (winner), Dallas, Columbus, Carolina

East Division

  • Xander: Pittsburgh (winner), NY Islanders, Buffalo, Boston
  • John: Boston (winner), Buffalo, Philadelphia, NY Rangers
  • Neal: Washington (winner), Philadelphia, NY Islanders, Buffalo

North Division

  • Xander: Winnipeg (winner), Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto
  • John: Vancouver (winner), Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton
  • Neal: Toronto (winner), Edmonton, Vancouver, Winnipeg

West Division

  • Xander: Minnesota (winner), Arizona, Anaheim, San Jose
  • John: Colorado (winner), Minnesota, Anaheim, Los Angeles
  • Neal: Colorado (winner), Vegas, St. Louis, San Jose
