Level 169 - I‘ll Always Have Your Back 4 Blood

This Week's Panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude5012, VulgarLatin

This Week's Topic - "Go to your achievements won on TA. Go to the fifth to last page and tell us about what achievements are there. Can be general, like games you played or a specific story. The question is, would the you of today (consider how you play your games, not just if you like the game) actually have played that game/earned those achievements." - Matrarch

Corey channeled his inner Left 4 Dead with some Back 4 Blood! Ell played some non baby games for a change including a veiner and a Game Pass game! Nate also played a Game Pass game, but did he give the humorous game a pass? Devin got his Shocktober on early with some Bioshock Remastered!
