S02E20: Talking About Golf, Thinking About Destiny

With the release of Destiny 2 upon us and thus doing a short version of the show so we can play more of it, we still find time for all of us to show our love for Everybody’s Golf, Jake gets some time in Rainbow Six: Siege with the latest update, and Ben continues his journey in Final Fantasy XII.

News is also short and sweet with the announcement of Dead Rising 4 coming to the PS4 this December, a new Jackbox Party Pack is coming in the future, and more versions of the DualShock 4 are coming this fall.
