Not even Zach Miller can prevent TYP from bumbling his proper nouns.

Then send it my way and your request might be on the next episode of Radio Trivia: Podcast Edition!  Heck, throw in a question and specific songs if you want.  Just remember, it has to be a game found on a Nintendo system in North America (unless we say otherwise)!

I did pretty bad this episode. 1/5. the only game I got was Zach's game.

It may be because I played it in early access, but I did not like how stiff the platforming action felt thanks to the Paul Robertson animation. thanks to that , the time limits on each 'instance', the very shoehorned in Gears of War Active Reload, and the sameyness as you're forced to grind out the same content for chances at better equipment made me drop mercenary kings when I got it on steam and never look back. I thought it was unfun and misunderstood what makes the games it was cribbing enjoyable and engaging. This is not a shovel knight tier game. this isn't even an Axiom Verge tier game in my mind. if anything, it's the most '7.5' indie game I can think of because it hits all the stereotypes and none of the heights that people expect from these small-scale, vaguely retro inspired games.
