Jon thinks this title is real clever; I even resisted the urge to ask him about collector's edition cardboard.

Everyone's eager to hear team RFN talk about Nintendo's new Cardboard Entertainment System, but you're going to have to wait till the second half of the show. James was late, so Greg takes over hosting New Business. Guillaume kicks off with LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, from way back on the PS3. He then looks at Thimbleweed Park, the retro-style point-and-click from the creators of Maniac Mansion and other classics of the genre. Jon is trudging around in the mud in Gears of War 4, on his Xbox One X - The World's Most Powerful Console. Greg wraps-up both the game and New Business with his thoughts on Xenoblade Chronicles 2. James isn't around to meet him with a high five, but they might find time later to compare notes.
James retakes the wheel after the break, to talk Nintendo Labo - Nintendo's just-announced cardboard construction toys for Switch. Apparently, Greg had been promising James would bring enough hot fire to shame the Sun, but he misjudged James' love of construction toys. Who on the show is going to be filling their home with piles of cardboard? Jon, but that's just the packing material for cat helmets.
