After a longer than planned break, The Entertainment Dome returns with our late reactions to all those new Persona spin-offs, my spoiler-free opinions on the third season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead and James’ sadness regarding BioWare’s future plans for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Despite telling myself there was no point in buying it again, I recently caved and wound up getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch. Between the new characters, improved Battle Mode and all the included DLC, it’s easily the definitive version of the game. If you missed out on MK 8 the first time around, you have no excuse to not grab a copy.

That, and the single-player was actually pretty good, with the final boss fight being the highlight. I didn’t know what to expect, but it certainly wasn’t an evil octopus DJ. Continue reading
This week on The Entertainment Dome, James and I fail to keep our excitement in check thanks to the recent Telltale announcements, the new Kingdom Hearts III info and Jodie Whittaker being cast in Doctor Who as its first female lead.
