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 65: F EA

– In this Episode, we bash EA for with everything that we have.  We lay into them and we show no mercy and we do the same for Randy Pitchford and Gearbox for the second straight episode.  We are Mad As Hell and we are fed up with it!
