This week Brandon and Todd are joined by the brilliant managing editor of Gameranx.com, Holly Green, for a spirited look back at Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, how the series was originally influenced by the original Wasteland, and what we should expect from the August release of Wasteland 2. (Todd's got a couple hours in the beta.) Along the way there's Borderlands 2 shenanigans and a very, very important Civilization Revolution 2 PSA. (Short version: Do not buy it. Do. Not.)

Todd and Brandon are back to talk all manner of games that you probably played months ago including, but not limited to Tomb Raider, The Wolf Among Us Ep. 3 & 4, Walking Dead Ep 3 and Watch_Dogs. We also get into why Brandon is better at Fitbit than Todd which shouldn't come as a surprise as Brandon is better at most things.

Brandon and Todd are joined by Troy Goodfellow to talk about E3 as well as various other things. Trust me, it's much more exciting than it sounds.

Todd returns from his honeymoon burdened by the shackles of marriage but devoid of any recent gaming experience. It's like they didn't have games in Mexico or anything. Luckily Brandon is here to talk about Transistor's funky combat and slow rolling story. It doesn't stop there though as Brandon does his best to court indefinite detention by calling out how scary the NSA is and, by extension, Watch_Dogs. Listen close folks as you can hear the black helicoptors off in the distance!

Todd's not playing much more than FTL but Brandon brings the heat with a little Bravely Default, some Vita love, a smattering of Hearthstone talk and some gushing over the visual style of Hitman GO. Seriously, that game is swellegant.

Todd gets down on some Reaper of Souls action, Brandon explains why Bravely Default owns his soul and talks about how inFAMOUS: Second Son is a great technical achievement but a pretty mediocre open world game. Also, the secret of "Bill Abner" is revealed!

This week on JtS, Todd and Brandon swap crime stories. Brandon takes to the world of Thief and comes away unimpressed with its nefarious arts. Todd logs into his Blizzard account for the first time in over a year to find he's been banned over auction house shenanigans. Along the way there's also time spent with Bravely Default, reminisicing about Harold Ramis, and the dangers of Bluetooth.
