Also, with news that Google is actively hiring Xbox and Playstation executives and developers, can a gaming console be far off? What must Google do to make it work? All this and more in this week's demosode! Here's some social media stuff: Twitter:...


Episode 29 -- Bomberman Hero (N64)

It's listener request time! We got an email from a fan named Kyle who really wanted us to check out this game and thought it never really got a fair shake. We live for you, the fans, so we played through (almost) all 72 levels. This is a long episode, but we felt like the game deserves it to really dig into things like "how did a race of bombermen evolve?" "How close did Lucasfilm come to suing Hudson Soft and Konami?" and "Why do the bad guys always laugh in video games?" Thanks again to...
