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.
