Some plot twists are just too good to keep under wraps for long, whether because of a game's popularity, loose-lipped fans, or sequels that build their lore on formerly secret knowledge. This week, Larry Charles joins us for a look at five once-shocking plot twists that have become too broadly known to even be considered spoilers anymore; we're talking "I am your father!"-level, here (but you'll get warnings and timestamps anyway, just in case). Then we'll get into Horizon: Forbidden West, Perfect Tides, Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster, the Street Fighter 6 reveal, and the 3DS and Wii U exclusives you think people should grab before they disappear.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus has us thinking about isekai stories – where a hero is unexpectedly dropped into another world or time period, and struggles to get back – so with PNB’s TL Foster on board, let’s talk about five of our favorites. Then we’ll talk a whole bunch more about Pokémon Legends: Arceus and why it’s getting love even from Pokémon haters, plus Bloodborne PSX, more game-industry acquisitions, Mina the Hollower, and the series you’d want to see go open-world.
