BACK NEXT WEEK! Quick Update & Thanks for Listening!

Hello Lamer Gamers this is simplyTravis. I’m just dropping in to let you know that we are not posting a full podcast this week for 2 main reasons. The first reason is that Rowdy5000 is currently on the front lines of the war against the gobbles (which if you listen regularly to our show…is our code name for the current sickness that is ravaging our land and is currently spiking in Texas that for some reason the worlds largest search engine doesn’t like us to talk about…sigh…but anyways) Rowdy5000 is currently taking very lengthy, uncomfortable q-tips and gently caressing the back of sickly folks brains through their nose and testing them for the gobbles. Or the back of their throats….it just feels like it’s gonna reach your brain. Anyway…so he’s way too busy to record and edit a show this week after working about 70 hours. The second reason is that we normally record on Friday or Saturday but it is 4th of July weekend out here in Texas so there has been a non-stop cavalcade of concussive bursts echoing through the swamps and freaking out my dogs.

Don't Drink the Zombie Coffee!

In today’s episode we’re gonna let you know about what’s coming up in the Animal Crossing Summer Update, talk about a new character with long arms showing up to Smash, along with some other interesting news items from this week.

Then we’ll round out the news section with a discussion on the latest game to get review bombed – The Last of Us 2. We’ll move into the rumors section with some patents that could be centered around the PSVR 2 along with what is quite possibly a big stinky pile of fake gaming news that claims the Xbox Series X event will be the “night of mic drops.” We’ll then move into some impressions from the game Grounded and finish with our BONUS POINTS segment where we asked as assortment of friends of the show the question Do you have a problem with the size of the PS5 and XboxSeriesX ? Or are you ok with the massive next gen proportions? News 00:03:38 Rumors 01:04:09 Impressions 01:35:15 Bonus Points 01:52:56
