You'll get more than you bargained for this time around. Bill betrays his family, exploits his son's fears and has a mild Segasm, while Joel tastes brawler defeat, exhibits signs of a DmC stroke and cuts the proverbial cord. Things get weird as shit after talking about the Midwest Gaming Classic and we both struggle with saying our goodbyes.
