This week on The Polygon Show, we reminisce the days of AIM and the painful experiences of being a teenager. Other important topics include: Toad’s hat (?), the meaty thunks of Horizon Zero Dawn’s bow and arrow, how the animals in Pocket Camp are still rude and ungrateful (yet charming?) and much more.
