Paul and Jon hold the fort down as Sean is out with injury. Jon hasn't really been playing much but is able to now talk about Blaster Master Zero 3, which he does. Paul, on the other hand, has been continuing through FFXIV, checks out the beta for New World, gets enthralled with Cris Tales, gets disappointed in Pokemon Unite's monetization and falls in love with Death's Door.

News is a bummer. Activision Blizzard on trial for some messed up stuff, Tom Clancy gets a bunch of attitude and EA Play shows us a bunch of neat things coming up.

It's Mario Golf Super Rush week and Sean is real disappointed, it also didn't help that the Pirates of the Caribbean/Sea of Thieves game mode also frustrated him. Paul wraps up Nier once and for all.

Lots of developer news this week including the acquisition of Housemarque, Remedy announces a new Left 4 Dead-style shooter in the Control universe, and some updates on what's coming this month at EA's summer livestream.
