Karol and Tim do everything possible to avoid talking about the Konami-shaped elephant in the room that is the release of the new Metal Gear, so we gripe about the heat and hit up some unexpected news of a new Pikmin. We also play catch-up on recent playtime with games new and old. Tim bites his tongue so he won’t bore the room about a certain racing title hitting in just a scan few days. We make no mention of Marty O’Donnel wrecking house in the legal sense in his case against Bungie, but that’s also a thing that happened. Happy Tuesday.
