This week, Ray Barnholt of Scroll, No More Whoppers and Retronauts joins us for frank talk about five faintly embarrassing vanity games that recast popular musicians as action heroes (or action-hero enablers). Then we move on to talk about tepid new releases, gross baby-delivery games, and games you loved because they were short.
Question of the Week

*NOTE* We’ve been getting some AMAZING donations lately but hardly anyone is attaching a name and the intended recipient of said donations. Please try to make note of which podcast the donation is going to so maybe we can get some new equipment and thank the right people for all their support.
Theme song by Matthew Joseph Payne. Break song is Smooth Criminal (Genesis Remix) by Michael Jackson and Chris Antista. Haunting and beautiful New Releases Theme by David B. Cooper.
