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.
