In this 95-minute instantly available show, hosts Aaron Kirchhoff, Wesley Johnson, Holly Attesi, James Gillard, and Randall Smith fight the horrors of irregularly available entertainment. Off and on, anyway.
In this episode:
Aaron Kirchhoff - Vet in the making; also interested in "exotics." This term never defined on-air for reasons of decency. His educated opinion on the question of canine afterlife. The inadvisable inhalation of pipe smoke. Aaron's home remedy for 360 disc read problems. Aaron squeezing the last drop of life out of each game. Aaron the curmudgeon? No, just shy and silently hating you. A quick tally of fistfight records among the hosts. James's Fable II fighting record not nearly as impressive as his real-life fighting record. James playing LucasArts games. Wes playing Evidence: the Last Ritual. The virtues of a mic pop screen implicitly extolled. James reformed by his spouse in Fable II; Fallout 3 not as morally compelling. Randall still playing L4D, and really bad. Randall's poor performance a source of hope and inspiration to Aaron and James. The Sunday L4D game meetup. A JPAG Game Night calendar created (http://jpaggamenight.brianweis.net/
), courtesy of Brian Weis. A belated discussion of Christmas Invasion reception by Joystiq commenters. James irritated by the dry forum in the JPAG. Johnny Platform's Biscuit Romp, heralded by James as a long-awaited answer to his plea for more Battenberg cake inclusion in games. Battenburg cakes, explained, and linked to James' mysterious past. Biscuits on either side of the pond. Notable links to biscuitpedia-type sites. Mornington Crescent explained, in a manner of speaking. I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue
