Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 19] : Amiiboversary

This week, our pre-break off-topic conversation is a rapid-fire lightning round, as the Rev explains polyamory, Mandi explains her love of clothing with animals on it, and Julian watches a bunch of Christopher Nolan movies and invents a new line of underwear.

Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 3] : Amiibo Sandwich Blues

The third episode of the Half-Glass Gaming starts off on the wrong foot, as Josh explains how Subway ruined his breakfast.
