Episode 141: Jawa Bear

– During the slow season, while waiting for games to drop, we sometimes run out of things to talk about, so this episode, we spend the last 20 minutes talking about movies an comic universes. But earlier in the show, we do talk about games.

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.

Episode 56: GameStop’s Backroom

– In this episode, Spark, Ranger and I talk about the virtues of bad game reviews from the Wall Street Journal, GameStop BJ’s, and why Jedi will buy, but not play Forza Horizons until February.  We also touch on what we think should be in the first Borderlands 2 DLC, and George Carlin’s best movie scene’s. And as an added bonus, we talk about the American fascination at seeing someone potentially jump to his death from 22.7 miles in the air.
