    Hi guys, thanks for another great episode! I just wanted to let Brad know that he was the one who introduced me to Fell Seal. If he had not talked about it on the podcast I would probably not know it existed at all. But I played it and I loved it, so thank you Brad! After this episode I will definitely be checking out Horizon's Gate as well.

    Now that Nick came around on Dusk he should give Amid Evil a shot as well

    This isn't a dig at Nick, but I loved the awkward wording he used when mentioning the raiding mechanic for Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. I'll quote it:

    "Obviously a big part of viking, um...you know, history is...raiding parties and, and, conquering...uh...you know, communities and whatnot."

    Please don't think I'm making fun of you Nick, I love ya. More focusing on how weird it would be for anyone to talk about 'raiding' as a game mechanic. Already wondering how Ubisoft will put it in the story's narrative.

    "So yeah, you know how you always hear about how vikings used to kill and burn and pillage villages? Now it's your turn, gamer!. But don't worry, your own killing and burning and pillaging is TOTALLY justified. We call it gentle-raiding. Now get on those leaderboards, bros!!"
