The Cartridge Family 016 - Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Arrives, John is King Magoo

The family holds the ceremonial crowning of their very first Magoo, one John of House Benyamine, first of his name?


We’ve officially entered the unnoffical end of the games season. Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the years-in-the-making followup to the Wii’s sorta-hard-to-find JRPG darling is finally here, courtesy Monolithsoft and Nintendo. My bedroom Nintendo Switch rig (sadly not mentioned on the show) is fully operational and setup for maximum Xeno-ing, so I’ll be (briefly) updating the show with my progression moving forward.

On today’s show the family explores their gut reactions to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and discusses the idea of PUBG on a mobile phone. We quickly touch on the changes coming to Destiny 2 as a result of the very sad community that’s developed around the game’s post-game content and hidden XP throttling. We wrap things up by playing a very fun 20-Questions rip-off entitled “19Q Magoo” which we hope you will both enjoy listening to and playing alongside of us. Buffa caps off the show with his Back of the Box Beatdown featuring The House of The Dead.
