The JimFear138 Podcast Ep. 74 - EA, Trump Sips, & Contraceptives

Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of the podcast! Sorry this one is a bit late, my brother wanted me to watch some Marvel show with him and I don't get to chill with him often. This time I go over the Star Wars Battlefront 2 shitstorm, give a couple better game recommendations, and talk about some fucking ridiculous news like Trump drinking water, Twitter removing verification badges, and state lawsuits against contraception. It's a long one, so grab a drink, turn on your favorite RTS, and strap in for the haul!
