Because they are horrible adults Marcia and Carrie make the obvious joke about Sony pulling out of the PAX East expo. On a related note we do have a blog post up here about how to avoid the PAX Plague. This podcast episode is full of gaming chat, television shows, movies, and Jax’s upcoming trip to PAX East.
All efforts to talk about one or two games went out the window as per usual. The ladies chat about the Animal Crossings New Horizons Nintendo Direct broadcast very excitedly. Marcia talks about her latest games including Journey to the Savage Planet, and Fortnite Season 2. Also included in that lineup is Effie, a great action-adventure indie game that everyone should check out.

As a lifelong fan of the Animal Crossing series of games I’m keeping a very close watch on Hokko Life. It looks like it could be the answer to all of the prayers of PC players wishing they had an Animal Crossing type game to enjoy. Hokko Life is being created by ex-Sony developer Robert Tatnell. I’m so exited about this upcoming game I decided to hop on board and support his Patreon.
About Hokko Life:
Hokko Life is a creativity-filled community sim game that invites players to escape the hustle-bustle and relax in their new home of Hokko. Build the town of your dreams with Hokko Life’s creativity tools, which allow you to customize and design furniture, clothing, and much more! Those creative juices not flowing? Why not relax and while away the hours at a local fishing spot; out hunting bugs; or tending to your garden!
Hokko Life Announcement Trailer:
🔨 CRAFT: Head to the forest or the abandoned mine to chop; mine, and dig for resources. Take what you’ve collected back to town and craft them into materials you can use in your own designs.
📐 DESIGN: Gather your materials and head into the workshop to put your own spin on every item in the game. Use the design table to build your own furniture, combining different shapes and materials in a simple but powerful editor.

In Episode 184 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast Carrie and Marcia chat about back to school, new video games, and their summer TV & Movie favorites. We also put a call out to our community asking parents what their guilty pleasures are once the kids all go back to school. You all had great answers. We read them all out and gave you all a little shout out at the end of the show!
This week Carrie has been lured back into Destiny 2 with the new content recently released. Marcia still has an unhealthy obsession with Fortnite and chats about Season 4. The Stardew Valley Multiplayer Beta is live too. But with State of Decay 2 releasing this week will Marcia find another new game to love?
The ladies also talk about the World Air Sex competitions, making this podcast land firmly in the mostly not safe for work category again.
Last but definitely not least, Marcia and Carrie talk about how much they want the fans to save the TV show Lucifer. It’s been cancelled and left them on a huge cliffhanger with way too many questions to be answered. SaveLucifer please!

You know it’s going to be a good show when we can center the whole episode around the words Nipple Lipstick. In Episode 167 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast Marcia played around with new games Little Nightmares and Birthdays the Beginning. Carrie watched the movie Get Out and on an unrelated to the movie note, has decided she wants to try oil pulling. Desirai chats about the Mother’s Day Apple watch activity challenge, and derails the whole podcast with a bright idea revolving around nipple/lip color.
You’re just going to have to listen to figure out what that means. We’re not sure what kind of internet list we might end up on for typing that one out.
The ladies also chat about Guardians of the Galaxy 2, season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, and so much more.
