Shawn plays an evil (but adorable) landlord in Root. Brian gets an early (access) start on Forager and Totally Accurate Battle Simulator. Alexiz plays “Dress-Up Arthur” in Red Dead Redemption 2. Shawn liters the countryside with zombies in Axis & Allies & Zombies. Michael has troubles with old ladies in Sekiro. Alexiz and Michael play Fallout 76 for the butt shots.
