Episode 22: Our Triumphant Return and Marvel Heroes Omega

We took a not-so-brief hiatus to do life things like get engaged and become gym people.  But now we are back, way better and even more engaged. Did we mentioned we are getting married? We have also spent our time away playing some great games! Drew talks about the games he's been playing, Bailey talks about the games she has not been playing. We completely forget to talk about our time at MomoCon. We do talk at length about our experience playing the Ps4 beta for Marvel Heroes Omega. To finish off our epic return, we create our RPG parties solely out of 90's sitcom characters.  Also, one of us is not wearing pants. WE'RE BACK!!
