Welcome back — we’ve got fancy microphones and no idea how to use them! Join us for a decidedly less Power-ful show as Sid talks about Overwatch for like 20 minutes, then falls asleep when Justin recounts his experience at FFXIV Fan Festival. Plus, oodles of PS VR chat, and some early impressions of Titanfall 2’s single-player campaign.
You guys. What a show.
