We are back after a short unplanned break due to scheduling issues! Thanks to all who emailed and sent in voicemails! It’s appreciated! :) In this episode Stephen and I give you are review-in-progress of Hey! Pikmin. It’s a fun title, but has some big flaws. The new Pikmin Amiibo is amazing though! :D We also talk a bit about Splatoon 2 and them dig into the news including Splatoon sales, Switch craziness and even a JoyCon cup! Enjoy!
