Going back to look for old images from White Christmas I could not find images of the black face scenes (unedited?) so the burning question is have they been so effectively erased that they are forever lost or was the racism inherent in the practices used in the show so pervasive that my friends and I internalized the blackface images.

    Episode 119: Video Games in Cereal Boxes

    in Video Games

    The final, at least for now, word on Star Wars Battlefront II comes from EA's CFO. Turns out they couldn't make loot boxes out of cosmetic items because they don't own Star Wars. It's a great point no one thought about. Player Unknown Battlegrounds is coming to mobile, bu just in China for now. Animal Crossing Pocket Camp has been released and has taken over our lives. Some Animal Crossing fans are complaining about it, but we think they're just wrong. Also there is going to be a Mario cereal. For real.

Below you will find a few topics that we will discuss tonight. See you guys at 8pm EST.
