Episode 105: No Lone Ranger

– In this episode, the show must go on without AsphaltRanger so Spark and Jedi actually go on without him.  We talk about getting wisdom teeth pulled, and why PleX is so great at least for some.  We also talk video games and the what is being called the Tiny Console War.

Episode 92: The Pitchford Factor

Episode 92: The Pitchford Factor

– In this episode, AsphaltRanger gives us a run down on PAX East.  Spark goes into details on why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel might not be a buy.  And JediChric tells us why Fucking Matt Damon was the best thing that he’s seen Sarah Silverman do.  All that and plenty more.

Introducing: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Only Coming to Xbox 360 and PS3

(Because of the larger install base and it has nothing to do with being cheaper to develop or they just happened to have a lot of cut footage that would cost them next to nothing to produce and charge $60 for)
