Episode 80: Cream Covered Goodness

– In an episode of depravity, Spark, Ranger and Jedi talk about Ellen Page, and why she should sue the shit out of a developer, why you shouldn’t pre-order console’s from Target and why game makers should leave Aliens alone and focus on Predators.  Be sure to listen all the way through for the funny outtake at the end.  Enjoy.

Episode 74: Geographical Castration

Episode 74: Geographical Castration

– We had a good episode and one that showed that the show can go on without Sparkstalker…if only for a little while.  But Spark does join us and we have a grand old time.  We talked about Mattrick leaving a sinking ship for one that hit an iceberg.  Where exactly AsphaltRanger wants Randy Pitchford to go. What we really think of the Ouya.  And why we love Major Nelson.

Episode 67: Alien Acid Fecal Matter

– In this episode, we talk about why Xbox rumor don’t mean the crap they are printed on.  Why Gearbox has fallen as fast and as far as they have in the amount of time that they have.  And why we hate ads.
