A tale of woe and D-cup hardware fail is available at the following link.

It’s a real disappointment for the show that Arjay is repeatedly left out of the XBox Live camaraderie.  Despite our best efforts to change his ways he’s always been a one-console man and, for the moment, that console is the Playstation.  Peer-pressure may be chipping away at his will, but the greatest strides have come with the recent death of his PS3.  He’s not quite to the point of embracing the XBox, but with any luck his fallback strategy of last-gen gaming will buckle under the weight of exaggerated tales from ODST.

Regarding Halo, it was a real shock for us to learn how much fun could still be had with this series.  We were always fans of the game’s world , even when we were at odds with its gameplay.  It’s been nice to reconcile the one with the other after all this time.  With any luck, the reconciliation will continue into the foreseeable future.


Or is it more of a death…hairball?  Prepare to evacuate soul at the following link.

The Pox remains among us, by which I mean that Scott will be hacking and coughing his way through this episode like Clint Eastwood in Honkytonk Man, without there being a Marty Robbins to jump behind the mic if he throws a lung.  Of course it’s not really that bad, and I see that we’ve had two movie references in as many sentences for a paragraph that should be about video games, so moving right along…

We were sad to have missed the Dreamcast’s 10th anniversary on the show, but each of us celebrated – or mourned, as the case may be – according to our own traditions.  After a decade it’s clear that this machine was forward thinking to the point of being prescient.  Who knows what sort of praise we’ll be heaping on it in another 10?

We’re happy, as always, to be joined by the occasional Dennis, who promises to be much less occasional from here on in.  He seems to have learned a lot in his time away, and will be held accountable for how he uses this knowledge.  He also seems to like the Wii a whole lot less, which makes it difficult for us to corner him for opinions on Nintendo games.  I guess we know what Matt’s job will be when he gets back from the sand.


For the life of me I can’t remember what we were trying to articulate in this episode.

It’s been too long since our last show for us to bother with much of a preface.  Batman is discussed at length, which is no kind of surprise, though we can’t promise you’ll like everything we have to say.  We’re not all finished with it yet, so our final conclusions have yet to be drawn.  We can’t imagine that standing in your way.

Again, this week, we are beset with troubles and will not be recording on schedule.  Scott has been afflicted with PAX-plague, Jeremy’s having significant hardware problems, and I just can’t get my shit together.  Arjay’s cool, though.  That’s pretty much always the case.
