Happy Canada Day! This week we're all playing Batman and enjoying it quite a bit. Jon also write about Final Fantasy Record Keeper and Sonic Dash. Paul plays through Her Story. Sean continues with Minish Cap and episode three of Tales from the Borderlands.
Jon returns from his trip to California with tales of E3 2015. We run through every press conference that went on, discussing everything they mentioned. Bethesda, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, and Square Enix. We mention our favorites, least favorites and what we are most excited for.
It's the week after E3 and we aren't talking about any of it at all. (That will come next week). Sean returns from his trip to Europe and he talks about Puzzle and Dragons Mario/Z, Fallout Shelter, and Minish Cap. Paul is playing Duck Game, Hearthstone, and Akiba's Trip.
Sean is away this week travelling the globe, so Paul and Jon call to Hank (@comicpanels on twitter) to fill the void in the podcast and their hearts in Sean's absence. Hank has been enjoying the new Double Fine turn-based tactic game Massive Chalice, being a cowboy out for revenge in Westerado: Double Barreled and trying to kill God in Devil Survivor: Overclocked. Jon has been in the ink playing a bunch of Splatoon between bouts of Stretchmo and streaming games such as Hotel Mario and Super Castlevania. Paul? Well, he's mainly been doing handheld games and finally started the Phoenix Wright games for the first time ever when he hasn't been addicted to The Witcher 3.
In this rather over-stuffed episode, Jon is back to talk about MomoCon and where he's been hiding out for the last two weeks. In the time away, he's been playing Mario Puzzle and Dragons and Stretchmo while Sean finally starts up Axiom Verge. The two also talk at length about Splatoon. Paul, on the other hand, has been playing MMOs he can't read (Blade & Soul) and is actually super excited about it.

Sean played and finished a lot of games this week, including VLR, Splatoon, Game of Thrones episode 4, and Life is Strange episode 3. Paul played the last one as well and tried out Elite: Dangerous.
Jon is away at MomoCon and Sean just continues to work through VLR. Paul plays a good chunk of Axiom Verge and tries out Dungeons and Dragons.
A break in his apartment's water pipe makes Jon too busy this week. Sean however is here and continues to talk about VLR, he also checks out the latest update to Mario Kart 8 and plays some Pushmo World. Paul is trying out Axiom Verge.
Neither of us are playing too much right now, Paul isn't even here. Jon finishes Mortal Kombat X and Sean plays some Race the Sun and Monster Bag.
Late recording this week as the crew spent Thursday night seeing The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Due to this, the first while is talk about that (no spoilers... promise!) but we get right into the game talk afterwards as Sean dances around in Crypt of the Necrodancer, rounds up llamas while skiing in Alto's Adventure and doesn't have much fun with Never Alone. Paul dives into the new Hero Siege DLC, bends some elements in Platinum's Legend of Korra game and gets down and dirty in the Dirty Bomb beta. Jon... well... Jon watched some hockey and streetpassed himself all week!
