Podcast Unlocked

Ryan's on vacation this week, so Marty "Cracker Barrel Old Country Store" Sliva and Alanah "Bucca di Beppo" Pearce take the wheel and are joined by Miranda "Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar" Sanchez and Sean "Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Spirits" Finnegan. The crew talks about the lackluster Metal Gear Survive debut, Miranda's awesome Gears of War 4 visit, this fall's slew of shooters, Mass Effect Remastered rumors, and whether or not sheep have sex with other sheep.

I'm very sorry.
