Oh sweet, sweet irony. California State Senator, Leland Yee, was arrested on corruption, racketeering, and pretty much being in cahoots with organized crime.

This is what we’re here to talk about.
After that, talked bout PAX East game reveals. One of the biggest reveals was DuckTales Remastered. WayForward’s handling development, which makes us all the more giddy. What else at PAX East filled us with this kind of excitement? Well, you’ll have to load up part 2 after the break!
