95: Cobra: A-A-Aaaa Saviour of the Universe

Download Episode 95, here.

Trying to synthesize the myriad of topics we discuss in this episode into shownotes would be, quite frankly, madness.

Suffice it to say, it is not exactly a normal episode. However, bear in mind that at the time of this episode's recording, my apartment was a bombshell of half packed boxes, disassembled furniture and dead hookers plastic bags. As a matter of fact, I'll most likely be moving to my new apartment as you listen to this.

The first four Tora-San DVD's are out in the US!

Shootin' The Breeze

We start the show by discussing my big move; finally a room for my computer. Masturbation jokes ensue; what a surprise.

Mail & News:

That little darling, Kent, e-mails us supporting my love of Summer Wars. Alex rolls on the floor and squeals with utter despair. Or not. But it's a funny thought, is it not?

Review: Wizardry; The Anime

Wizardry the Anime is not in and of itself an important title; nor is it an especially good one. However, Wizardry itself is extremely relevant in gaming history; almost single handily being responsible for J-RPG gaming as we know it, and through the ripple effect, the Japanese AND North American anime industry.
