Hello and welcome to another episode of the Polygon Show! Filling in for Chelsea, special guest Adam Moussa from Eater is back on the podcast.

Talking points include:

  • Winnie the Pooh’s horrible existential crisis and subsequent manipulation in Kingdom Hearts
  • The relatively unknown (and canon!) horniness of KFC’s Colonel Sanders
  • How over-the-top Bayonetta is
  • A mysterious noir game set in the 1920s
  • Allegra is back into Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for some reason
  • Our guesses (now past tense) of what will come out of the most recent Nintendo Direct


  • Simone de Rochefort - Video producer. Author. Woman of leisure. Assassin’s Creed enthusiast.
  • Ashley Oh - Social media manager. Mei main. Meat expert. Phantom thief. Knife user.
  • Allegra Frank - Deputy news editor. Scoop hunter. Anime enjoyer. Nintendo nerd.
  • Adam Moussa - Senior social media manager. Exceedingly good at pairing Oscars nominees with Super Mario Odyssey screenshots.
