We were so stressed out last week that we didn't get around to recording an episode, so we thought it was only fitting to make today's episode about how to deal with stress. So we enlisted the help of our good friend, Runashleyrun, to help us discuss the following questions. What kinds of stress are there? How do they effect us? How do they effect others? How do we as gamers handle stress and what kinds of games are good for relieving stress? Grab your stress balls and breathing bags, heart pieces. Everything is going to be alright. In fact, we're starting to feel better already!

BONUS: Kickstarter Film Festival, The French Whisperer, Teenage Mutant Giant Raisins, Secret Ending

Grab a pen and some paper because it's time to go to school.

Today MasterWife and MasterJoe celebrate their 2-year wedding anniversary by talking about video game weddings! From invitations to the isle, we share some ideas to help get you inspired in your own wedding planning. Despite our best intentions, we somehow manage never to mention the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and it's incredibly Japanese commercial feautring the amazing wedding of 2 card board boxes. We do, however, share some stories from The Vault about our honeymoon, like that time we pretended to be Jane and Tarzan.
