Every week, a ragtag group of 1UP personnel sit down and talk about whatever the heck is on their mind. Sure, they might get sidetracked into talking about food or poetry or weird things they buy, but in the end, it's still about games. Then after talking about games and topics, they address reader questions submitted via message board, Twitter, and voicemail.

Besides the sudden 3DS price drop, it's been a bit of a slow news week. So we decided to pretty much throw most of the main editorial staff into the podcast studio for this episode. Our roster this week includes Scooter, Jeremy, Matt, and Ryan; then Jose and Bob bring a special guest from 1UP's past into the studio for a seven man podcastravaganza. Stuff we talk about include the aforementioned price drop, Aliens: Infestation, Catherine, Ghost Trick, MGS 3 Snake Eater 3DS, and how amazingly...

It's San Diego Comic-Con, so naturally we talk about...E3! With Jeremy out at SDCC, and Jose and Bob on Mario Kart duty this week's lineup is Scooter, Matt, Ryan, and Cheats intern Marty Sliva (who sounds like Andrew Pfister to us). We talk about all the fighting game news, professional conduct during E3 interviews, Star Fox 64 3D's water effects, water and beaches in games, and how we personally don't pay attention to ESRB ratings. Enjoy!
