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.

RIP LucasArts

Episode 60: End of the World Show

– In the last show ever (unless the world doesn’t end), we talk about a lot of things.  We get into the gun control/video game violence not being the problem in today’s society.  We also attempt to conquer the game of the year question, and to our surprise there were very few good games this year.  Enjoy the show and I hope you live long enough to hear it!
