“Some people are a waste of perfectly good carbon.”
This week on the Hey Poor Podcast, I “Incredibly Sick” Coleman tries unsuccessfully to hide the fact that he’s sick, Nathan “No Ding Dong Talk” Terencio misses the good ol’ days of tag team fighting games, and Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is perhaps the most disappointing HD remake of all time. Oh, also: the ESRB made it clear that it has no interest in dealing with the loot box gambling issue, and President Game Show Host thinks mass shootings are caused by unregulated access to videogames. Oh well. At least Black Panther was awesome.
(Note: there’s no way we could discuss the major news of the last week without getting political, so skip the news section if that’s an issue for you. As always, views expressed on the Hey Poor Podcast reflect only the views of those who express them and are not representative of Hey Poor Player as an organization. That goes double for anything Nathan says about Tony the Tiger.)
