This week Todd, Holly and Brandon talk about the Witcher 3 pre-release coverage seeing how none of them have the actual game to talk about. Sadness. Then Brandon gets into Wolfenstein: The Old Blood a bit before Holly departs and the menfolk talk Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This week it's the Todd and Brandon show as Todd continues to gush over Pillars of Eternity, Brandon explains why he stopped playing it to start playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and then they take a little detour into the town of Salem for Murdered: Soul Suspect before arguing over the new Star Wars trailer. Good times.

This week brings a big, deep, crunchy look at the results of Obsidian Entertainment's highly successful Kickstarter project, Pillars of Eternity. Does this kind of Infinity Engine-inspired RPG work in 2015? (Yeah, you already know the answer to that.) We also kick off with a look back at Wrath of Khan and a wrap-up that features Assassin's Creed: Rogue, kicking zombies for levels in Dying Light, and much marveling at AMC's The Walking Dead.
