Feeling a bit left out, Gentle Listener? Wondering just what you have to do to win friends and influence JPAGers? Despairing that anyone will ever truly know you? Fret no longer, Friend. Hosts Scott Reeser, Wesley Johnson, Randall Smith, and Tom Johnson are here to invite you into the inner circle. And if you don't come willingly, Zach the Giant will squash you into a bloody pulp, wipe you off his boot, and toss you into the garbage like a leftover Slurpee. Also, don't try stealing from him.
In this episode:
Updates from one and all. Scott and Zach playing WoW; Tom enjoying the corner office at the student paper. Wes gives one last update on the romance angle, which is immediately put into perspective by Tom's own story of S.O. horror. Dragonslayer returns in full! Randall eats last week's words re: Assassin's Creed. Subtle attempts to determine whether or not Zach is a possible angle on getting early games. Fifty Cent: BoTS still a great game, says Tom. Wes enjoys Ninja Blade in much the same way. Achievements as a thang discussed, again. Randall wants a weighted achievement cred algorithm. Sequels and tired franchises, considered. Notable JPAG discussion threads discussed. Overlooked gems in this-gen games. A slang dictionary for the youth ministry set. New Cypress News, a year in arrears. The JPAG an inhospitable place for newcomers? Hazing rituals for noobs.
