Take a magical journey with all nine of us as we each take a game out of the list and re-place them like they're new out of the box, and bring justice to the world by doing so. Sonic shuffle is taken out of the bottom ten--but will it end up back where it started? Undertale has been given a second chance--how high will it go? And can Final Fantasy X-2 make it to the X-2nd spot on the list? Let's all find out, together. You can find the current list of ranked games at bit.ly/letsplace

Episode 43: Dark Souls II

WE'RE BACK. Let's Place starts its third season, after wrapping up a second season that... had a single-digit number of episodes. Whoops! Anyway, Luke is joined this week by Molly, Matt, and newcomers Kendall and Marl. After a very important sub-placing session where they rank seven Marvel Comics superheroes, they get to work discussing GBA movie tie-in games, the fact that none of them know anything about TaleSpin, the ancient precursor to Grand Theft Auto, a terrible card game, and one of the greatest action RPGs of all time.

This episode starts off already off the rails as new guest Gorge calls in from... his car, while he drives around town.

Episode 38: Advance of the Megacamel

I'm joined this week by Zack, Matt, Mike and Ashley, and if they can SHUT UP long enough for me to get on with the show, we'll discuss Jeff Minter's early obsession with drug-fueled quadrapeds, the barren wasteland that was Xbox Live Indie Games, the... classic?

Episode 37: Tecmo World Wrestling

Okay, look. LOOK. This episode was RIDDLED with technical problems. It might be the single most technically fraught episode of Let's Place yet, and I'm including the one where I had to re-record the audio for over half of an episode. It was just a mess. Don't use Discord to record podcasts! It does a bad job. Anyway, if you can bear with us, I'm joined this week by Dina and new friends Josh, Jules, and Matt. We talk about seminal RTS games, terrible PC shovelware, morally dubious Atari games, awesome wrestling games, and we finally decide between Final Fight and Final Fight Guy. YOUR GAMES THIS WEEK ARE: Command and Conquer: Red Alert, for PC; Splash, for PC; Battle of Shiloh, for PC and Atari; Tecmo World Wrestling, for NES; and Final Fight, for SNES.

We got a new website, a new method for sourcing guests, and a new logo! Also I'm gonna stop writing these descriptions in the third person so I hope that's cool. Anyway, I'm joined by longstanding guests Tal and Dina, along with previous guest Tyler and a brand new friend, Fionna! Tal's attempt to be more positive is immediately destroyed by a bad Professor Layton knock-off, we learn how to LIVE FAST and DIE WET, Fionna MOCKS ME INCESSANTLY FOR THE PERFECTLY NORMAL WAY I PRONOUNCE "CRAYON," we get into some straight up Spongebob talk, and for the encore, we return to one of our favorite topics: horrifying children's games.
