The Kickstarter backer demo for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has found it's way into Brad's hands at long last but with it comes disappointment. Luckily, Onrush, from the creators of Motorstorm, is here to lift our spirits. Krispy talks up the new Overwatch hero, Hammond, an adorable Hamster who goes by the name of Wrecking Ball. In the news, we explore the idea of Google entering the console hardware market and talk about Amy Hennig's new venture into the indie space now that she has offically left EA and Star Wars behind.

    First off, Nick can’t recognize Overwatch characters because he hasn’t ever seen their faces.

    Second, the poop knife is a real thing. You’ll find them in houses that have a combination of low water pressure and big poops. It’s useful to have a dedicated tool for sawing logs. I’ll send one to y’all for Christmas. Here’s a link for Chris to throw on screen.

    Nolan's MRI story is one of the funniest things I've heard in a while. Here's wishing that LodoftheNerds was still doing 4PP animated.

    After seeing the most recent build of Ritual of the Night, I'm kinda bummed/curious about how developers these days go about creating their games. I'm all for a resurgence of more classic styles of platforming, but people these days seem to forget that all the gimmicks -- however cool they may be -- don't make for an interesting game without having solid level design to serve as a foundation for it.
