This week Rick, Tim, and Patrick continue to talk Splatoon 2, with Rick finally sharing some impressions, as well as offering a comparison to a game he has been warming up to lately, ARMS. Meanwhile, Patrick shares some building frustrations with Splatoon 2‘s tendency to place restrictions on the player, and Tim tries to beat back the growing tide… After that, the guys do a rundown on some news, including the newly-announced Samus Returns 3DS, as well as the ongoing saga of amiibo availability (please Nintendo, make sure those Metroid figures are heavily stocked!).
For the final segment, the crew looks back upon one of the best gaming-themed documentaries of all time, The King of Kong, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. What makes this look at pride, obsession, and 80s hairdos such a special film? You’ll have to listen to find out!
