On this week’s episode, we talk about the exciting reveal of the next generation of Pokémon games on the Nintendo Switch with Pokémon Sword And Shield. Andrew Reiner also talks about his final review score for BioWare’s Anthem. Then Jeff Cork and Suriel Vazquez talk about their fond feelings toward ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove and Sega’s upcoming Yakuza spin-off called Judgment. After some great community emails, we interview the co-founder of Westwood Studios Louis Castle about the early days of the RTS genre with Command & Conquer, why the hell their The Lion King video game was so hard, and what life was like as an EA executive.
