51: The Games Media, Smash Bros Community, And The Last Of Us 2
2020 has not been kind to anyone. This week I talk about all of the crazy things going on in gaming. Games media, select members of the Smash Bros community, and the Last of Us, have all been trending for all the wrong reasons. The Last of Us 2 is trending due to its developers and voice actors being the targets of death threats. The other two are much more complicated than that. I don't find these topics fun and look forward to going back to more light hearted content in the next episode. I feel like I wanted to give my opinion of these topics so I went ahead and bit the bullet.
