Jumping the Shark
No High Scores' official podcast.

After more than a year away, spent sharing his basketball genius with the youth of America, the self-proclaimed straw that stirs the drink, Bill Abner, is back this week! He and Todd try not to stress out in the Darkest Dungon, Holly hopes Dark Dreams Don't Die in D4, and Brandon finds Divinity in Original Sin: Enhanced Edition for the PS4. Along the way there's also some Spelunky, Brandon's extra special ranking of Assassin's Creed games, and reflections on game industry burnout. 

Thanks for listening! (You can contact Brandon at Brandon@NoHighScores.com/@misterbinky, Todd at Todd@NoHighScores.com/@ubrakto and Holly at @winnersusedrugs.)

The gang is all in for episode 241 as Holly delights with talk of her terrifying and emotional journey in the underwater vastness of SOMA. Brandon has his Destiny taken by a King and furthers his love of Nolan North in the process. And Todd says angry things --many, many angry things-- about Spike Lee's influence in NBA 2k16, not to mention the continued insult that is the game's Virtual Currency system.

This week it's just Todd and Brandon but they have much to talk about. Brandon gets down and dirty with Destiny 2.0 and the Taken King before describing the joy and pain of the apocalyptic wasteland in Mad Max. Then Todd talks about getting in the right head space for MGSV and AC 4: Black Flag. It's an open world extravaganza!
