It’s That Time Again!
 
From all of us here at TRG, a Happy early Thanksgiving (or regular Thanksgiving, depending on when you’re listening to this). This episode, the guys discuss Black Friday, the cultural phenomenon of deals on deals on deals! The guys share some memories of the day from years past and discuss some of the hottest deals at the different retailers this year.

What Have We Been Playing (6:04)
Adam rekindles his friendship with the Nintendo Switch! While he makes time for Golf Story and Luigi’s Mansion, the PSVR manages to pull him away long enough to get into the world of Super Hot VR. Logan gives reviews for Daemon X Machina and Code Vein. Only one of those is worth picking up and it isn’t the one with the giant mechs.
 
What Have You Been Reading (24:43)
Adam digs into a book called “Gospel Primer”. It talks about the importance of the Gospel for your life everyday and may be a good resource for anyone currently discipling someone in Christ. Logan discusses the book, “Within Reach”, which gives statistics on why people 18-22 years old leave church after they graduate high school.
 
Topic - Black Friday (33:15)
The guys start things off by talking about their experiences with shopping on Black Friday. Conversation then moves on to discussing TRG’s Top 10 “King of Thrift Certified” Deals for Black Friday shoppers.

Light A Candle

Days Gone was a Playstation exclusive that was adored by gamers and fizzled with critics. But is it as bad as the reviews say? What kind of themes are held within? Join us in this episode as we deep dive into Days Gone on the Playstation 4.

WHYBP

Adam catches more fish and loses his new wife in Fire Emblem. The guys briefly discuss Luigi’s Mansion 3. Logan talks diving into the Castlevania series which then led him to start collecting retro games and revisiting retro X-Men games.

WHYBR

Adam discusses being forgiven in Christ, specifically how we are no longer held guilty in Christ. This brings up a discussion of how, in Christ, we are more than conquerors and Romans 9. Logan discusses a sermon he heard at a recent convention from Revelation 22. Discussion turns toward the dire nature of the phrase “Lord come quickly”.

Topic

The guys start the discussion of Days Gone off with the review controversy around the game’s launch and if it was warranted. After a brief introduction to the set up of the game’s story, the guys begin discussing the main character, Deacon, and his biker brother, Boozer, and the theme of loyalty between the two. The world of Days Gone has an effect on people, as clearly shown in the group known as the Rippers. The Rippers religion is one of darkness, something we see out of Romans 1. There is more discussed in this section, but due to spoilers, they cannot be elaborated on in the show notes.
