That's it. The cast just ends right there.
Ryan and... Matt "Still Alive" Amberg's cricket army are back and blessed with Sliptide "Sean" Tuneman for just long enough to hear a thought or two on Rainbow Six Siege, getting punched by The Elder Scrolls Online, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Far Cry 5, Detroit: Become Human, and Where the Water Tastes Like Wine.
And with that we bid a fond farewell to everyone that made this yet another great PAX, and if you're reading this, listening to that, or watching... it, then that means you. PAX!
