    Hey guys, really enjoyed the podcast for a good while. Thought I would chime in to let you guys know that Persona 5 is really, really long. Not sure if you have ever used the website “How long to beat” but it is a really great resource. It’s a sort of crowd-sourced website where people put in how long it took them to beat various games. I use it when planning out my steam purchases and stuff. Anyway, Persona 5 is currently at 97 hours for beating the game which is kind of… just… wow:

    If y’all are going to stick it out might I suggest splicing in some smaller games to mix it up? Here are some of my favorite (short!) indies I don’t think you guys have talked about:

    To The Moon –
    One Shot –
    Pony Island –

    Feel free to ignore my suggestions but I think the podcast is the most interesting when you guys are talking about new experiences.

      Thanks! I promise we won’t do a year of shows about Persona 5 without talking about other games, too! And recommendations are always welcome.
