You may have heard Tears of the Kingdom is upon us, so we spend a bunch of time on early impressions and BOTW comparisons this week before moving on to the delightful people-puzzling of Humanity, the Overwatch 2 PvE cancellation, some sure-to-be-timely speculation about the new Mortal Kombat, and more.

Well, you know, probably not much happened while we were away, it'll just be a nice casual chat this week about the biggest leak of Xbox business operations maybe ever, Unity's ongoing destruction of its business model, a deep lore dive on the release of Mortal Kombat 1, the excellence of F-Zero...
We're taking a pause on the regular show this week to bring you another banger from the Patreon archive, in which Abby Russell and Austin Walker join us to talk about pottery, Legally Blonde, and scrambled porn.
