Monday night is here and it's time for The SML Podcast Episode 92: Kris Got His Xbone, here on Bleeding Cool!

It's a glorious week in SML Land as co-host Kris Huber finally did the unthinkable. He got  the Xbox One he's wanted for months. We celebrate this occasion with frequent special  guest Taras "Pappy" Butrej of Drunk Monkeys.

We talk to Kris about his first week with  the system and the few games he's been able to  play so far. Assassin's Creed Unity and Black Flag, as well as, of course, Diablo III and  Killer Instinct. Considering all three of us played Diablo III together, we spend a  healthy amount of time on that game.

Back to Assassin's Creed Unity, plenty of time is spent discussing that game as well given  the negative reception to the game and its many issues. Glitches, microtransactions,  framerate, and content are all discussed by Kris and I in a pros/cons kind of way.

Other topics of discussion include EA Access, Far Cry 4, Super Smash Bros., Amiibo  figures, Shadows of Mordor, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and so much more! Plus, the  always fun Skype disconnects and emails from Randall Drew and Zak Lyons!

Music this week is from dear friend of the show Jake 'virt' Kaufman celebrating the recent  release of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse on the 3DS, which has some of the best, non- ghosting 3D on the system. Also, the game is fantastic. Buy it.
