Do you like opinions on new releases? Reviews of hot games? Perfect. Ludwig, Xav, Anthony, and Earnest are hitting a trio of February bangers-- The Last of Us: Left Behind, Strider, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Also on the slate this week: roleplaying as CEO of Capcom, and the weird and wonderful world of "crowdplaying" Pokemon on Twitch.
Are you on track to complete your Four in February? If not, get to playin', partner, because we're plowing through our lists.
PSA section: 1) We had a slight audio issue this week. Apologies for the occasional aural oddities. 2) The Last of Us spoilers from 36:12 to 45:52.
