Good day!

We open things up this week with some talk of the latest Souls-like, Ni-oh. Is it just “samurai souls” or “shogun souls”, or is there more to this game than meets the eye? Next, we move on to a bevy of Nintendo titles from yesteryear, each with its own level of success, including New Super Mario Bros 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. 

Finally, we get into the topic at hand, as we look back at the mostly embarrassing history of sex in gaming. Will there ever be a time when sex can be simulated in a video game without being awkward or uncomfortable? We certainly hope so!

Join us for all of this and more…
