Hopefully we can solve the great debate that's tearing apart the Highlander community.

Jon took a week off to do the unspeakable, so it's just the GG&J trio holding down the show. James is systematically banging his way into mania with Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun for Switch. Without the taiko peripheral he's losing a bit playing with the Pro Controller, but it's a much better way to J-pop than the absolutely dreadful Joy-Con controls. Guillaume is prepping for Evo with Dragon Ball FighterZ, for Switch. Come for the talk of a flashy fighting game, stay for the mangling of Dragon Ball canon. Greg closes out New Business with the ultimate close-out, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The overland flightis a bit repetitive, but the other elements of the game are actually fun.

After the break it's Listener Mail. This week we take a couple of emails reflecting on the two year anniversary of Breath of the Wild, before diving into our terrible ideas for Smash Bros. DLC characters. Thanks to Jon's absence, nobody mentions Steve Hewitt or his Final Smash of "fall into a volcano." You can hand us your pocket watch via the inbox.

James, it's been a while since I've played a note highway game, but my eyes do the same kind of thing when playing something like Tetris Effect, something similar to when you're looking at a magic eye picture and trying to see the hidden image, except involuntary. 

But it's possible we could just both be weird and broken in this particular way?

This is exactly the experience. I can't even force it back into focus.

Wait, did I miss the Sean Connery portion?

It might have been edited. I've been bedridden and haven't heard the final product yet. I name the show not knowing what's been done to the audio.

Pretty sure I didn’t touch it. The challenge is to remember when and why James brought up the bad video game duel in Never Say Never. What triggered it? It’s not obvious from the chapter titles.
