Another week and another 15x themeless puzzle! I mentioned recently how sometimes the grid filling is a breeze and then I spend all my time on cluing instead. This is one of those crosswords where the filling was a struggle, but once I had my words, I had clue ideas popping out of my head like a movie theater popcorn machine out of control. For anyone who looks up my reference in 46-Across, I'm... sorry? (No, I'm not 😜) Yes, I have played the said video game completely through. (It's been a long pandemic, okay?!?)

I love watching people solve my crosswords, so if you're planning on streaming it, please feel free to poke me on Twitter, @TrashPandaPuz, if I'm not already in your regular streams like Scootsbaboo and MegaphonicFM.
