Both Monica and Brian are a bit under the weather going into this recording so bare with the infirmary of a podcast we’re broadcasting to you. We catch up on what’s been going on since Episode 033, Monica dealing with the sickness and Brian’s deep love that is building for the game Cuphead. After this, we jump into this week’s The Good, The Bad, and The Indie taking a look at game releases between October 1st and October 7th. Finally, we take a look at PUBG’s current predicament of online gamers from around the world Review Bombing them for their lack of server stability.
