With Miitopia and a new 2DS coming this week, this week's Top 5 is devoted to Nintendo's Miis (which have been around for nearly 11 years now) and to the games that let you actually play as them. Then it's on to an earnest discussion of Fortnite, (more) Splatoon 2, Sonic and Archie parting ways, new Telltale seasons, and your favorite moments from Metal Gear.

Metal Gear turned 30 last week, so we're devoting the first half of this week's show to ranking our favorite Metal Gear Solid games, with special help from Henry "hEnereyG" Gilbert. With that out of the way, we move on to Splatoon 2, Toy Story in Kingdom Hearts 3, and the musicians you'd want to perform songs in video game sequels.

With War for the Planet of the Apes hitting theaters this week, it seemed like as good a time as any to rope in Heidi Kemps of gaming.moe and launch our own exploration of the simian perspective with five games that let us play as hulking, violent apes instead of puny humans. We then move on to talking about Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Gorn, Hoobastank's frontman singing Sonic Forces' theme song, and games you've finished, but wish you'd spent more time with anyway.

Plenty of games like to litter their worlds with hidden items and secrets for you to ferret out, but how many of those actually come with their own self-contained storylines? Quite a few, it turns out - but with the help of former IGN editor Vincent Ingenito, we'll go through five of our favorites this week. Then it's on to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Pac-Man Vs. coming to Switch, and movies you'd like to see get their own janky adaptations. (Thanks to John Spezzano for this week's Top 5 suggestion!)
