For our very special Rio 2016 Olympics™-themed episode we let Max take the reigns of the ‘cast to veer us into movie discussions that have us questioning why Suicide Squad is so bad, if the Ninja Turtles are really Teenage, and why there isn’t yet a sequel to Citizen Kane. Eventually we talk about ~Hot New Video Games~ such as Headlander, Gal Gun: Double Peace, Furi and Dreamwork’s feature film game adaption of Robots, before Max tricks us into talking about video game-esque board games such as Doom, Dark Souls, Mansions of Madness and Guess Who. We top off our 20th episode by discussing the very bloody Paint the Town Red and pitching games about riddles, ripped assassins, riddles again, and Monkey Ball Gangsters. Happy Max Day, everybody!
