It’s a laid-back one this week as Jamie and Tom S convene to admire the gentle art of booting a panda through a wall in Tekken 7. There’s more spectacular booting to be had in DmC: Devil May Cry and the stompy Dead Space remake, but can any of this compare to the thrill of an old console whirring up a CD Rom to play a 10-second cutscene in 1997? Join us for additional nostalgia, open world discussion, sad dads in space, and more.
