My lawyer assures me that this does not constitute a threat.

Greg is out watching the first round of the NFL Draft, an event where billionaires turn college-aged adults into millionaires and then stake their pride on the performance of these young men. This week we're joined instead by former-host Jonathan Metts.

Jonny kicks us off with a look at the Labo Variety Kit. It tuns out Nintendo is really good at making instructions. He also has a look at Bomberman-inspired indie game Bombslinger. No Pyramid Head in this one, but instead we get a rather weird story mode. Guillaume is going after your high scores in Graceful Explosion Machine. He's also dodging balls in Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure. I'm sticking to that wording. James refuses to use up his single opportuinity to talk about Yakuza 6, and instead castigates Atlus for releasing Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology with DLC "good art." Jon takes us back to 2004 with a look at The Elder Scrolls III: Morowind for the Original Xbox on the Xbox One X: The World's Most Powerful Gaming Console. Jonny brings us back around, using that as a springboard to talk about the PSVR and his time with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for VR.

After the break, we take a look at two emails. The first asks us about Nintendo's fiscal year reporting and the announcement of their next president, Shuntaro Furukawa. The second email asks if the Switch is Nintendo's Trojan Horse Quality of Life product. Is  Labo our silently improving our Quality of Life? What if the true Quality of Life was the living we did waiting for the announcement? You can ask us to bare our darkest fears about our the quality of our lives by sending us an email.

Yes! My favourite N-Gage game was mentioned in this episode



Also, on Labo in instructions. I put together the fishing rod and motorbike with me nephew over the weekend. As we were going, I payed barely any attention to the text instrustiosand just watched the extremely well done animations. It was very easy to understand what to do.

Agreed.  I sat down with my 6 year old to put together the fishing rod yesterday.  He was a little too young to do it himself, but the software has great visual aids to where I was skimming over the instructions.

I'm not sure i'd recommend getting it if it were just for me, but between the rod and the piano so far, I know it'll get a lot of play in my house with two little ones.
