Episode 140: Flogging the Dolphin Chair

– In this episode, Sparkstalker continues the proud tradition of hyping the new Forza game.  AsphaltRanger’s chair was making Dolphin noises and I was just dipping into the moonshine.

Episode 136: Fractured Butthole

– In this episode, we tried, and tried to get a full recap of E3.  But it wasn’t in the cards for this show.  First, we had a devastating thunderstorm that knocked out power 30 minutes into the show.  We got the Xbox presser covered, but everything else had to be covered later.  The second show the next Tuesday covered the rest of E3, but the software that we used to record, DIDN’T RECORD!  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?!?!  So, I bring to you the only part that we managed to get.

– In Episode 129, the band of three were back to our normal hi-jinks.  JediChric won’t buy Rocket League because I don’t want to buy anything so close The Division’s release.  So, blame The Division for the lost sale on Rocket League.
