56:21 | Oct 23rd, 2017

1:08:52 | Aug 28th, 2017

1:14:52 | Jun 12th, 2017

1:07:26 | May 1st, 2017

1:22:44 | Oct 17th, 2016

It's time to talk about Trump. Again. But not before running each other off the road and jumping out of tall buildings. (In video games, sheesh. What did you think we meant?)

49:58 | Oct 10th, 2016

In which we welcome Oculus and Google into our homes with varying degrees of open arms, and then figure out which fantasy worlds we'd like to escape to once they inevitably take over.

WWDC and E3 happened, the future is amazing, and Steve hates pretty much all of it.
