Thanks a lot for tunning in once more for the Tears of the Kingdom playthrough! What a good time I'm having playing this game, it's actually insane! Highly recommend it so far and I still haven't completed a single temple! See you tomorrow for more! pic.twitter.com/p6hey2tbAH— Luxthos (@luxthos) May 19, 2023
This is why Link doesn't assemble his own Mario Karts.

The 'Fast' old days
Today on the pod, we go all the way back to the 1st Fast with our bud @Sethrogen - where the Big Bad is a scared man with a shotgun & the crew are involved in a combination dvd/vcr player heist. If only Baby Dom could know the lengths he would go over the next 20 years... pic.twitter.com/E6Oh3Mcr5N— HowDidThisGetMade? (@HDTGM) May 19, 2023
The How Did This Get Made crew (Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas) look back at the one that started it all: The Fast and the Furious. (Which of course, is not to be confused with Fast & Furious, which is the fourth one.) They bring Seth Rogen and have some fun laughs over this series' humble beginnings.
