HIS WEEK: On this 19th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we discuss our current President's numerous atrocities. THEN! We hit you with KANJI, and turn you Japanese (this time, I really think so!), setting you up for deals from the current Focus dev sale. All capped gloriously off with Star Wars universe based extreme mindless slaughter combat in our full review of "Battlefront II." Excitement ensues.

JK: everyone still hates Denuvo, but in this week's embarassingly drunk episode, we talk about borked "Marvel's Avengers." Then we hit you with maniacal sadistic torture-carnage in the powerful (yet imperfect) "People Playground." All this plus 30 minutes about "Star Wars Battlefront II:" why we love it, and why you should buy it now while it's still on sale. Brought to you by Gentry's Gin...

SWBF2: It's like a really pretty girl that you love having sex with, but she has problems communicating and is emotionally sketchy in patches. This is offset, however, in that you both like the same exact thing (Star Wars) and that forms the basis for the relationship. Is it superficial? Yes. Is it a rocketship to pleasure land? Yes. Is it for all-time, this feeling of joy? Who the fuck knows: lick up the honey, stranger, and ask no questions.

This week, we celebrate "Factorio" finally leaving Early Access; a truly monumental achievement for a long developed masterpiece of a project. Then, cause quarantimes are crushing us all, we talk about some great deals with long replay values in multiplayer, especially in the kid-friendly (but visually rad, and hyper polished) "LEGO" franchise. Finally, we blow you away with our review of "Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts." ALL THIS AND MOAR!

Our 300th episode arrives during the midst of the gaping maw of an uncontrolled pandemic in the USA. As daily death tolls ratchet once again past 1,000, it doesn't feel right to celebrate. SO WE MURDER: with our full review of the masterful sidescrolling metroid-murder-machine that is "CARRION." This game helps refocus on the logistical implications of the Trump administration's complete failure, reminding us that, whether you believe in COVID or not, it believes in you.

NOTE: Mispoke consistently throughout: not "Super Mario World," but "Super Mario Bros. 3"
This week, as we meet new friends we are forced to face the incontrovertible reality of the existential dilema - along with the sundry injustices, inequities, and insults that still seem to be with us during even this, the ostensibly most enlightened moment in our sad shared history on this planet. AND THEN A PARADE!

Because people will not SHUT THE FUCK UP, and continue to mischaracterize the APOCALYPTIC REVELATION that is Mint 20 and refusal to buy into Canonical's corruption of apt, we present the following episode. Which was produced on a machine running Mint 20, with snap. See you next week.

the anti-canonical TERROR-CODES:
sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref
sudo apt install snapd
sudo apt install chromium-browser

Truly, it is the end of the world.
