Jay Petrequin, Adam Foster, and Gary Swallow reunite as a trio to talk about the last testimonial of the creator of the ill-fated Coleco Chameleon, and examine the nature of the resistance to transgender characters in games. We answer questions about our opinions on Gears of War 4, and talk about games whose art style has been the ultimate make-or-break. Jay faces webcomic-based social issues. Adam names a Noah’s Ark-themed bong. Gary attempts to become a professional psychologist.
