We leaned pretty heavy on the "and Junk" part of our name this. We barely talked about video games for the first hour and instead decided talking about cartoons from the early 90's and a bunch of other stuff I can barely remember. We also decided we're going to watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit for our next episode. Have any thoughts about it or anything else you'd like to share? Email us at podcast@gamesandjunk.net

We also sort of talked about E3 for like an hour because we know you come here for the hard-hitting news from a month ago.

Jason and John follow up on the Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII talk by giving the Battlefield V reveal its due. Jason played a Western game that John hasn't and has been digging into something aimed right at his Castlevania III heartstrings. John's worked his way out of Lordran to find himself in Detroit and it doesn't sound like he's better off for it.

Brittany's ears are treated to Weezy F Baby himself, and it goes exactly as you would expect. Her music suggestion was a little more considerate, so don't worry.

We're taking a look back at the little Nintendo console that just couldn't. In the first segment, Jason Arriola is joined by Vanessa Cahill and Franky Ordaz to talk about the development history of the Wii U, some of our favorite things about it, and some of the things we wish it did better (or at all). Then in the second segment, Jason is joined by JoeStar  to get his thoughts on the Wii U.

In a surprising turn of events, we all come to the conclusion that the Wii U wasn't actually a bad system at all! So much so that Vanessa started a list of games to buy for it and try out as soon as we wrapped up!
