The hilarious and completely nuts "roll 'em up" Katamari Damacy is discussed for your listening pleasure in the book club this month, from the PS2 but now on Switch and PC. There's also much to discuss about the PS5 reveal, teeny weeny Game Gear Micros, and fog gaming. No, we don't really know what it is either.
