There is a sublime irony that my notes indicate Jon spawned this title.

James kicks-off New Business with Reigns: Kings and Queens, for Switch. It's a card game where you make binary decisions and are murdered for it. It's regicidal fun. Greg has some final thoughts on Octopath Traveler. It appeals in some of the same ways as the Bravely games, but rewards a level of planning that makes the experience all its own. Guillaume also has final thoughts on both Sushi Striker and and Dead Cells. You'll never guess which one he beat. Congrats, buddy! Jon closes us out with a does of Non-tendo, putting on his chaps and exploring the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.

After the break we take a look at the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct. Pokemon vs. Piranha Plant; it was never a fair fight.

Episode 600 will be a live show featuring our RetroActive on Super Punch-Out!!.
We are recording it on Saturday, Dec 1st. 1 PM Eastern US
You can get a head start on the Punch-Out!! RetroActive in our Talkback thread.

I was very impressed by James' thoughts on Reigns on Switch. I'm very interested to try it out. Kings and Queens is $12 (AUD) on Switch, but the original game, is only $3.89 on the Play Store. I just bought it with some left over Play Store credit I got for free for signing up to Google Pay.

I enjoyed it but yeah $12 AUD (~$8 US) is pretty close to where I'd limit it. I got it on sale for roughly $6 US. Cheaper on mobile is a good deal. It's fun but not that deep. Queens is a lot deeper.
