Theme Manager and guy who kills me in TitanFall 2 and BattleFront all the time Zack Hawkins is here to talk all things front end with Mario. As always we’ll have some news and events, we actually got email so the MailDrop makes a rare return, and as always, Ryan ignores us as he plows through the Final Bell.
