Max Level: A Video Game Podcast

Screaming Eagle

April 20, 2020

Episode #143 of the Max Level Podcast. On today's show, we're still neck-deep in Final Fantasy VII Remake and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, because today just so happens to be 4/20, I'll also be discussing one of my favorite puzzle games in recent memory from a year or so ago, Tetris Effect. From there, we've got a really heartfelt discussion inspired by today's date, even if it is presented in a somewhat humorous light with jokes sprinkled in. Stick around for this one. It should be good. Plus, hear about our favorite people we follow on Twitter, wrestler's we'd like to see featured in beat-em-up games, having a small fuse, and Sword of the Necromancer on Kickstarter.
