25. Showdown
August 28, 2017
Jesse is setting up a huge one on one battle in the garage between two pro gamers, but he hasn't told Julia or Ian anything about it. As he sets up a livestream account and begins promoting it on the channel, the excitement builds. When the gamers, Nakat and Keitaro, show up in the garage, we get the feeling that our gang has hit the big time. With Jesse taking care of so many details in advance, they are left wondering what else there is to do. Ian takes them through a Rocky-style training montage, which we soon realize doesn't have much use in the real world of gaming. The battle begins with a first round of Super Smash Bros, the preferred game of both players. Following that, the second round features the two of them competing at FIFA 16, the latest version of one of the world's most popular titles. If there is a tie, they agree to break it with an unconventional game. The world watches as we find out who will win bragging rights.

Jesse travels back to Japan, while Ian checks out a few spots in Niagara Falls and Julia heads to Fort York, where she learns about how tower defense worked in the real world compared to a video game. Back in Japan, Jesse is taking part in a one of a kind race, featuring many familiar characters.

But now the garage seems empty without the machine, so Jesse wants to replace it with something else. Ian and Julia are dead set against this option, the arcade machine is like a member of the family. Still Jesse insists, and goes for a look on his own. Jesse's effort to find another arcade machine is unsuccessful, so he tries a few unconventional options, again to the dismay of Ian and Julia. While the search continues, Ian travels to Florida to learn more about Deadwood and finds a few surprises about the inspiration behind the game. Back at the garage, frustration continues to build as they try to find an adequate replacement. Will the game ever come back or will they have to get used to living without it?
