Episode 18-4 Games Rob Should Play

Download


Rob likes video games, but he just doesn’t play enough! So as a joke in a previous episode, Pernell thought an entire topic can be made of game suggestions for Rob. I swear this is as meta as we’ll ever get on the show 🙂 All the music in today’s show is designed to get Rob interested in the game, and all the tracks Rob picked are from games that have been on his mind to play soon. I hope we inspire you to try some new games too!
