We usually play the Small Games but this week we have been playin' pretty much nothing but the Big Games. We talk about the new "casual battle royale" of Fall Guys and whether that's a self-contradicting concept. We talk about the tonal disconnect of online multiplayer shooters like CoD Warzone. We talk about the match structure and beautiful styling of Valorant. And we talk about the "shounen ecstasy" that Josh experiences when watching anime like My Hero Academia, Hunter X Hunter, Demon Slayer, and Gurren Lagann (among others).
