CAP 228 - The Return of the Revenge of the Glitches

The return of regular shows means the revenge of the audio glitches this week. I tried my best, but I can only do so much with the tools I have. So I must apologize for the large amount of background audio and uneven sound levels. The next episode will be a huge improvement quality wise. This episode is crammed full of gaming goodness such as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Darkest Dungeon, Madden 2017, Forza Horizon 3, Magic Duels, Battlefield One, XCom 2, World of Final Fantasy, Until Dawn, Heroes of the Storm, Destiny, Overwatch, and Titanfall 2. Tune in and hang on for a fun episode.
