Episode 205- Scary Microtransactions & the Decade of Siege

This week everyone seems a bit scattered. Does that make for a better show? We'll find out! Grif's still working her way through Persona 5 and things are just getting weirder as she goes. Chicken's not going to be able to stream Crash Bandicoot as promised. Is his reason for not doing so an acceptable one? And Baka educates everyone on the PSP Go... because that's a thing that exists.

Frank O'Connor talked about why Cortana is naked in the Halo serious and honestly, it's a pretty stupid reason. There was an upset in the eSports world as pro League of Legends player DoubleLift was kicked from his former team CLG, and defected to the rival TSM. Pretty big news for two of the biggest LoL teams in North America. There's also an added dose of drama  tacked on by CLG's team owner making some less than professional Tweets about the situation.

(Spoiler: No, probably not. Sorry guys.) Grif starts Persona 4 and has some questions about phrasing. EA's doing some questionable things with the new Battlefront game.
