It's been a big week. The gang covers every aspect of Monster Hunter World with their special guest Jason; a 12 year veteran of the series. They also go in depth to give tips and tricks about starting off in Dragon Ball Fighterz, and dispense updates on some interesting acquisition rumors from Microsoft that may bolster their first party support. Did you know that Final Fantasy: Spirits Within is a Scientology origin movie?
