Jg and Crowe have now left the team but we have bwade, Kassandra and Matt now as part of the full time line up.

    There's a new Nintendo console out this week, and we brought people from the future to talk about it!

Jeremy discusses his relationships with the villagers of Stardew Valley, Vader brings up Nioh, and Raegan talks about Dark Souls. Jeremy MADE him talk about Dark Souls, but he still does it. Anyway, enjoy the episode.

Sean also keeps up with the Stardew Valley chat, on top of stuff the new Zelda DLC announcement, the Surge, Crash Bandicoot, and of course, listener feedback.

    It’s time for a new episode of Dark Insight! Once again Cliff and Jeremy have abandoned the podcast, so Vader has to step up and host this week. He’s joined by frequent guest hosts Bryan and Kyle, and they have what sounds like a delightful time. I don’t know, I haven’t listened yet. Hopefully they don’t just call me the Worst for 2 hours. According to their notes, though, they talked about the Nintendo Switch, Zelda BOTW, tons of VR games, Mario Run, Let it Die, FFXV, and LOTS more. Plus: listener questions!
