EDIT: 2022-04-22: Weird West DOES earn our worth full price every price award; please see the start of episode 391 for an explanation for this correction. Sorry!

This week, we hit you with our review of the excellent free-will run and gun loot and shooter rogue-like story-driven free will murder fest of insane old west-but-with-magic-anddemons-and-shit, "Weird West." We also talk about the latest update to the (currently half off) "No Man's Sky," hit the slopes with "Shredders," and tease our forthcoming destructoff episode where "Abriss" and "Instruments of Destruction" will compete for the title of ULTIMATE GAME OF DESTRUCTION. All this and moar!

This week, The Ukranian Red Cross (I select these randomly per week, based off lists of reliable charities). These peeps are on the front lines. Ten bucks, twenty, whatever you can spare.
