After the break, Xav, Dave, and Mike Suszek discuss Xav's examination of sports games' apparent inability to teach the fundamentals of a sport. News closes the show with Alexander, Jordan, Jess, and Sinan covering the latest Nintendo Direct, Cliff Bleszinski leaving Epic Games, EA's recurring trouble making a basketball game, and more.
