The Communications Workers of America has decided to drop it's request for a union vote at game studio Proletariat (owned by Activision Blizzard), claiming the CEO Seth Sivak has made "making a free and fair election impossible" by using “confrontational tactics” when speaking on the matter with his employees. - Article by PCGamer Activision Blizzard team management has been forced to use a “Stacked Ranking” system for employee interviews, ensuring they're reviewed on a bell curve.

“The Shining Silver Crystal: The Moon Princess Appears” (November 28, 1992) It's the only Sailor Moon episode of a podcast you will hear this week featuring a surprise cameo by Mia Farrow. About a year ago, we covered Sailor Moon on our bonus podcast, The Cartoons That Made Us Gay. We kicked off 2023 by returning to Sailor Moon, and so we decided to pop the original one onto the main feed. This one is all about the first-season same-sex couple, Kunzite and Zoisite, but if you're into it, right now on Patreon there is a whole second episode about the other famous same-sex couple from this series, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. Listen to that here. And GEE will be back with a brand-new Seinfeld outing in two weeks! But if that's too long for you, don't forget that new episodes premiere on the Patreon feed one week early! Miscellaneous notes: Yes, there is a substantial parallel between Sailor Moon and Buffy, though we'd hesitate to declare it more than a coincidence Kotaku's post on the abomination that is the American pilot for a live action Sailor Moon remake Hello Kitty is not a cat Read Drew's Thrilling Tales of Old Video Games post if you want to know how the connection to Rose of Versailles And check out the lengthy Twitter thread posted in response to the first Sailor Moon episode, about why it wasn't surprising to have a same-sex couple in the first season of the show Watch the clip comparing Molly's original DiC accent to Mia Farrow's Go shop at our TeePublic store!

In our final episode of the year, we're joined by Kirk Hamilton of Strong Songs, Triple Click, and the Kotaku review of Destiny 2 fame. (No, really, it's one of my all time favorite reviews. Go read it!) Over on Strong Songs, Kirk recently dove headfirst into Nicholas Britell's excellent Andor score. Today, he's joining us to talk through music's place in the show and in Star Wars in general. Join us as we unpack the differences between Britell, John Williams, and the other musicians who've worked in the franchise. And don't worry, we sneak in one more theory about Cass' sister for good measure!

The dorks return to take another look at The Brothers' War and whatever cards caught our (and Twitch Chat's) eye. First though, we have to take a quick detour to laugh at Hasbro. Their stock was downgraded by Bank of America because they've been focusing on short term profits over longevity, which is something we've been complaining about for LITERAL YEARS.

Kotaku, PC Gamer, and probably others blasted Final Fantasy XVI, an upcoming game with Medieval Europe aesthetics, for not including black people. We discuss how ridiculous it is to expect diversity in every piece of media along with Hogwarts Legacy developers removing gender from the game as a swipe at J. K. Rowling, Dungeons & Dragons requiring cultural consultants on all future products, The Rings of Power actors tripling down on their stance on black characters in Middle-earth, and how based Emily Blunt is.
THIS IS A PREVIEW. FOR THE FULL EPISODE, GO TO Patreon.com/worstofall The lads throw on their finest alligator shoes and slap The Expression on their faces as they take to the mean streets of Martinaise for ZA/UM's political and existential triumph: Disco Elysium. Topics include the dense and fascinating history of the game world, the perfection of Kim Kitsuragi, and finding glimmers of disco in a world on the brink of annihilation. **Spoiler Warning** If you want to experience every surprise Disco Elysium has to offer, you may want to play the game first.

We start by remembering a professional friend of mine who we lost this month - Mike Fahey of Kotaku. We talk about how we would be the two press representatives at Atlanta events in the late 2000's and how we helped out each other professionally and personally. We take some comments from the Discord server regarding issues with the Tilt Five AR headset that other people are seeing, as well as some clarifications at how it works. I went to Dragon Con and had a great time - although a lot of people brought home a really bad souvenir. I hosted several panels, including an amazing one with Master Daniel and Carlos Pesina of Mortal Kombat fame. Check it out on YouTube! Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 will be online due to wanting to not hold their event in Florida. Sony has rejected Microsoft's offer to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles for three extra years, calling it inadequate. Then we talk to Rob about him beating my high scores, Dragon Con, and Disney Dreamlight Valley.
Dungeons & Dragons has long been aboard the woke train, and the latest controversy proves just how hollow and hilarious it all is. D&D publisher Wizards of the Coast censored lore from its latest book after just a few Twitter wokies complained it was “racist.” We discuss how the only true racists in this story are those who found the lore problematic along with Game Informer wanting The Last of Us Part I censored, Kotaku's ridiculous take on the censoring of Velma in MultiVersus, Awesome Games Done Quick virtue signaling about how terrible Florida is, a Warcraft pro being punished for his private support of Andrew Tate, and reactions to The Rings of Power.
This week we welcome the mind behind the metroidvania Rebel Transmute Evan Tor to the show. He talks to us about his process, pushing himself as a designer/artist and hitting his kickstarter goal! Shelby regalesof with his PAX West adventure and games on his radar. The crew the takes time to pay their respects to Mike Fahey of Kotaku and AGDQ cancelling their live event.
