This week you should take a moment to look into the recent events that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia. We’re not here to pressure you into any specific course of action, but for those feeling inclined to act, here is a good place to start 


Fire Emblem – Fates: “What’s the Fun if People Aren’t Boning?”

Hey everyone!

This week’s podcast is owed to a miracle. Jackson actually took Daniel up on one of his recommendations and picked up a video game he liked; that video game was Fire Emblem: Fates.

Daniel has been playing the Birthright edition while Jackson has been playing Conquest. The two of them take a look at the ins and outs of the two games, doing their best to give a balanced review.

Of course, they also have some solid choices for alternatives if you’re not feeling up to playing your 3DS:

This week you should read At the Mountains of Madness by HP Lovecraft

This week you should play Patchwork

This week you should watch the RollPlay series from YouTuber itmeJP
