Roller Champions is out this week, so to mark the occasion, we decided it'd be as good a time as any to look at five action games starring rough-and-tumble badasses who are strapped into a pair of roller skates the entire time for some reason. Then we'll talk about Microsoft Flight Simulator's Top Gun expansion, Pac Man Museum+, EA acquisition rumors, and your favorite games based on kids' cartoons.

This week was sandwiched between an elaborate MultiVersus Trailer and the new Rescue Rangers movie, so naturally our thoughts gravitated toward children's TV animation — specifically, five of our favorite games based on it — and we invited Jeremy King of the Film Heat podcast on to help us talk about it. Then it's on to Sony's latest PS+ announcements, rumors of new Silent Hills, and the EA games you'd like to see get a remake.

With this week's release of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising — a side-scrolling prequel to the upcoming JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes — we've invited Anthony Abatte on for a look at five other times big games gave players a little taste with all-too-brief (non-demo) prequel games before launch. Then we'll slash our way through Trek to Yomi and Salt and Sacrifice, revisit Rogue Legacy 2, speculate about EA's upcoming projects, and hear about the pack-in games you spent the most time with.

Some (mostly older) game consoles launched with generation-defining games packed into the box; others found them a little later down the line. This week, we'll take a look at five of the best games ever to be added as a bonus after their native consoles had already been around for a little while, after which we'll get into Nintendo Switch Sports, The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, Square Enix selling off its western studios, and the books you think would make the best games.
