On this week’s Hey Poor Podcast, what the hell is a videogame? It’s all movie talk here, as I “Holder Of The Cursed Microphone” Coleman and Jay “Absolutely Into Vore” Petrequin discuss how Blade Runner 2049 may not be pretentious enough, why The LEGO Ninjago Movie is uncomfortably mediocre, and the bizarre fact that the Detective Pikachu movie is a thing that exists in the real world. Also: I’s still obsessed with Sonic Mania, Jay bought a whole new 3DS to play Metroid: Samus Returns, Hiveswap is pretty much exactly what you think it is, and IGN is probably up to some shady shit. Yes, again. All this and more, on the Hey Poor Podcast!
