Postcards From The Share Button

That Guys a Maniac Podcast 7: Whataya playin'? part 5

Image
Its good that we choose a time like this to discuss one of the types of games that we cant really take advantage of, Couch co-ops. Richie expresses gamer rage at the latest Resident Evil games because he cant play things very well. we talk also talk Captain Toad and its charms...
And as a special gift to you all the audio gets out of sync as we talk about Jackbox games towards the end, blame Cunzy, he does all that stuff... really.
