Super-sized episode! Kirk and Jason start by talking about how much Jason's loving Final Fantasy Tactics on his phone and how impressed Kirk is with the opening hours of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. Then they talk about the news of the week (22:21), from Shadow of War microtransactions to a Pokémon MMO hidden within another game.
After that Kirk sits down with Kotaku's longtime advice columnist Harris "Dr. NerdLove" O'Malley (35:43) to talk about dating, pickup artists, and how movies lie to us about love. Finally, fellow Kotakuites Patricia Hernandez and Gita Jackson join the show to geek out with Kirk about their mutual love for Splatoon 2. (1:19:56)
