We're alive! Your Gamer Friends return to share some updates. Basically, last year was the worst year of our lives. Everything sucks! Not even two Spider-Men could save 2023. But, we're back, and we're going to talk about it all, including a very informal recap of our gaming adventures last year as well as a haphazard yet well deserved crowning of Game of the Year. If you don't want to hear about our clinical depression, jump to 35:45 to get to the games. Thank you so much for listening! As always, we really appreciate the support.

We're recording again the weekend this episode releases and will have some more gamer content for you soon! Thanks for your patience and all the love.

Happy Halloween! To close out spooky season, AudioNerd and Big Nkrumah are talking about the horrific allegations surrounding the imminent release of Bayonetta 3 and the scary (not really) prospect of James Gunn taking over the DC film universe. Also, have you noticed how queer Apex Legends and Destiny are? We certainly have! With the launch of Apex Legend's newest trans character, Catalyst, and Destiny's latest season featuring a queer mom, we decided it was time to talk about it. What are the benefits and limitations of queer representation in these games? You'll have to listen to hear the answer [spoiler alert: there is no answer]. Thank you so much for listening!
