Eight and a Half Bit (general)

James' favourite game TOE AND EARL is back! James loves it so much but Paul brings us back to earth with a well reasoned and wise opinion on the topic. Once James calms down from his undying love of Toejam and Earl he manages to discuss other things like The Division 2 and for some reason Companions of Xanth. Lose your mind and join us on another adventure of THE PJ VIDEOCAST EXPERIENCE!

Uncharted 4 by Anais vs Doom by James! Who will survive? All we can promise is that in tonight's episode one member of Eight and a Half Bit will die! Also Paul serves up the customers in The Maitre D and defends the space towers of Infinium Strike, James makes space friends in Stellaris and pretends 8-Bit Armies is 8-Bit in any way. We gander at Ghost of a Tale, The Way and have differing opinions on the Assassin's Creed film!
