With Comic-Con in full swing this week, this episode revolves around our favorite games based on comic books… that DON’T FEATURE SUPERHEROES (at least not in a traditional sense). Then, following an unhealthy number of digressions, we lay into Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, the Destiny beta, and your favorite digital monkeys.

“Pro Wrestling” doesn’t always mean “beefy dudes in Speedos.” Sometimes it means insultingly gratuitous panty shots, four-armed monsters, and Bart Simpson suplexing Moe Szyslak. This week, we take a look at five of the strangest wrestling games of recent years, after which our brief discussion of this week’s paltry new releases gets completely derailed with talk about movies with apes and Transformers in them. Then we talk about the worst jobs you’ve ever had. It’s fun!

No matter how monotonous, thankless, or gross a job is, you can bet it’d make a pretty badass video game with just a few conceptual tweaks. Our show this week starts off with five of them, followed by some vague ramblings about sexist Hearthstone tournaments and Nintendo shareholder meetings, as well as a look at your favorite games of the year so far.

We’ve been teasing this one a long time, and now Anne Lewis at last has the floor to recognize her five favorite (male and female) in-game butts. This is real, people. We’re doing this. Hang on to your butts, etc. Oh, and then stick around as we talk about some of this week’s new game releases, try to identify more Steam games based on their reviews, and talk about which characters you’d love to see gender-swapped.

Another E3 has come and gone. Was it good for you? If not, too bad, because you’re not getting another one until next year. 2014′s show was a lot more grim and dark than it’s been in a while, at least if you only look at the trailers — so we dedicated this week’s show to the five saddest ones we could remember.  Then there’s some more general E3 discussion, some talk about the blow-up around Assassin’s Creed Unity’s approach to gender, and a look at which E3 reveals got you the most excited.

After last week’s child-endangering double-whammy of Watch Dogs and Among the Sleep, we thought, “Hey, that looks fun,” and decided to focus this week’s Top 5 on games that put kids into life-threatening situations, often for no other reason than to provoke an easy emotional response from the audience. Then it’s on to the disappointing Murdered: Soul Suspect,  a smattering of pre-E3 news, and your favorite non-Mario kart racers.

Watch Dogs is here! Watch Dogs is here! But first, let’s observe Laser Time’s weeklong Block Karty with a quick rundown of five questionable, mascot-themed kart-racing also-rans, none of which starred mustachioed plumbers. Then there’s some talk about new releases (some of which aren’t Watch Dogs), a special appearance by the Norwegian King of Names, and a look at what you’re eager to see from E3 in a couple weeks.

Far Cry 4′s finally been announced, and even though it’s just concept art of a dude in a Scooby-Doo purple suit at this point, we’re still excited. So excited, in fact, that we hung this week’s Top 5 on the announcement, making it all about our favorite videogame mountains in honor of the Himalayan setting. There’s also plenty of talk about Wolfenstein: The New Order, Transistor, and Tropico 5, along with a look at multiplayer games you’d be sad to lose.
