Episode 136: Fractured Butthole

– In this episode, we tried, and tried to get a full recap of E3.  But it wasn’t in the cards for this show.  First, we had a devastating thunderstorm that knocked out power 30 minutes into the show.  We got the Xbox presser covered, but everything else had to be covered later.  The second show the next Tuesday covered the rest of E3, but the software that we used to record, DIDN’T RECORD!  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?!?!  So, I bring to you the only part that we managed to get.

Episode 131: Racist Anus

– In this episode, we try to review the Division, but it didn’t quite measure up.  Hopefully, we’ll bring in Prego Magic onto the next show give the Division the review it really deserves.  Needless to say, I think it’s the greatest game that I’ve played…EVER.
