What's in this episode, you ask? Who knows? Not me, Gentle Listener. Hosts Oscar Mancia, Holly Attesi, Dan Diemer, Wesley Johnson, and Yaniv Pereyaslavsky do, though, and they are about to lay it on you. Oh, the suspense!
In this episode:
Oscar the greatest drummer the JPAG Show has ever known. A big Wii fan, and unimpressed with the 360. Holly heads to Maine for vacation; has no chow-daa. It's not like that, Gentle Listener. Based on voice, Holly possibly a burly man; Mike Tyson used as point of reference. Holly acquires a green DS Lite; predictions of regret made. Oblivion mods discussed, yearned for. Fallout 3 a depressing place to game, apparently. Dan wants fauna and flora; also wants to kill Moira. Wes's despotic boss not a "tyrant," he claims. Wolverine commercial cameo. Yaniv, Dalibor Dimovski, and Ryan Gan now powering SideQuesting.com. Dali headed to E3! Dan explains why Randall is missing this week. Yaniv guarantees he will never be on another JPAG Show. Dan takes advantage of background noise to nosh. 3D Realms's death, discussed. Duke Nukem Forever = Chinese Democracy of games. 1 VS 100 considered. Oscar goes to see Maps and Atlases, and is impressed. Wes takes a leave of absence for several critical minutes, and returns to discuss forum postings. Battlefield Heroes enthusiasm. Appreciation for Twitter. The perks of a man on the inside at Gamestop.
