For that conversation, we're lucky to be joined by Andy Robinson of Vidoegame Chronicle, regular news breaker and a former game developer. He brought an incredibly insightful perspective as someone who not only has worked as a game maker, but also soemone with a rich stable of sources to tap for inside info.  Timestamps: 00:00 Check In 06:24 Console Crisis with Andy Robinson of VGC 01:07:10 AG1 (ad) 01:10:15 Incogni (ad) 01:13:07 Nintendo Direct Discussion 01:23:51 User Question 1 01:34:13 What We've Been Playing 02:13:15 User Question 2 02:18:00 Show and Tell 02:36:13 Wrap-Up Let's meet our hosts: - Jake Baldino (aka the Before You Buy Guy) is pretty much the most watched reviewer on YouTube across both Gameranx and his personal channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/JakeBaldino). If you're obsessed with Delorians, The Mummy and Pizza you can discuss that stuff with him directly over on Twitter:  @JakeBaldino - Lucy James is a Senior Producer at Gamespot and a Creative Producer at Giant Bomb. She's actually, like, experienced and credentialed and has real life skills and stuff, while the rest of the gang would be funemployed if the YT algorithm didn't kiss them for random, inexplicable reasons.  - Skill Up used to work at McDonalds but he got fired for skimming too many chicken nuggets. He says he regrets it since he hasn't had a better job since.  -- Listen to the Friends Per Second Podcast on your favourite podcast platform: https://linktr.ee/friendspersecond Follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheFPSPodcast Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/friendspers...
