This week we're discussing video game mascots. First, Fahey quizzes us on our knowledge of video game mascots through the ages. Then, we discuss mascots in the headlines (mainly Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart), which ultimately becomes an Ask Fahey Questions segment about Ratchet. And finally, we end with an interview with Chris Sutherland, former programmer at Rare and co-founder of Playtonic Games, who helped create Banjo Kazooie.
