“Pepperidge Farm remembers.”

Brandon, Harrison, Josh and Eric reevaluate the hearts and souls of the Game Grumps, share the reality behind the now-infamous Volpin Props Marriott carpet cosplay cease-and-desist, and further explore the world of Final Fantasy XIV. Then, after the break, the gang inexplicably talks about work for 20 minutes before diving into Grand Theft Auto V and last week’s big reveals for Valve’s SteamOS, Steam Machines, and Steam Controller. Finally, a great big pile of listener emails about cars, bronies, comics, time travel assassinations, Sonic, Diablo, NFC figures, snakes and more bring the show home.
