Topic Of The Show:
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen developer TT Games and the studio’s patented style of LEGO zaniness. That all changes as LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to launch this week, and we have good news for fans of the blocky version of a galaxy far, far away. The EIC Andrew Reiner is here to give you his impressions of the game, letting you know why this might be one of the best versions of the LEGO formula.

This may be the most extensive Playlist of the Alex and Alex era. Reiner continues to regale us with his time playing MLB The Show 2022 and lets us know about the exciting new features fans can expect from the long-running series. Then, we jump over to Kim and Van Aken as they’ve gotten to go hands-on with Two Point Campus, the new tycoon game that tasks players with building the best university they can. After that, Wes and Stadnik join a cult and profess their love for Cult of the Lamb after their exclusive demo session. After, we go back to Van Aken to discuss his time playing Midnight Ghost Hunt, telling us why it’s a great prop hunt multiplayer adventure. Finally, Kim saves the best for last and dives into her time playing Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition and lets you all know if it’s worth returning to.

We have another great edition of Listener Questions where the GI community asks us about cooking in games and if there can be such a thing as too much game.
