What We’re Playing

Colby: theHunter, Minecraft Dungeons, Diablo 3, Skyrim
Cliff: Mass Effect Andromeda
Dylan: BBQ Simulator

Sony Press Conference

These are Cliff’s notes, taken in real-time. Make of that what you will.

First off, damn these pre-recorded conferences need subtitles. There is literally no reason they can’t have subtitles.
