Panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, Matrarch, InigoMontoya80

Ell is back after moving to his new house! There are boxes everywhere, but the only important one is the Xbox!

Koosh also played an old school RPG and wondered what he was doing with his life. Inigo shockingly played a racing game, but it had unobtainables! Why did he commit such a cardinal sin?

Level 151 - The E3 Amigos

This week's panel - KooshMoose, rawkerdude5012, Vulgar Latin

E3 is virtually over but it's your Lucky Day! - we've got three friends ready to talk about their gaming week and E3 reactions. No need to talk of Dusty Bottoms in the E3 roster, we only talk about our favorites. Ned Nederlander is a also a name.

The dynamic duo is back with a not very sequential at all (good thing they’re not math teachers) segment focusing on games where the ratio is too damn high! Or too low. Basically, you should just tune in for some classic Exe and Elroy shenanigans - lots of rambling, shouting, puns, and giggles galore! (1:27:40)

It's time for another Waka's Weird Wonders. This time it's Boom Blaster by special request. (2:21:16)

Level 149 - A Podcast with Contrast

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude, FuFuCuddilyPoof

Our monthly live episode is here! May's Star Wars themed contest is finally over. We played a LOT of games for Gamerscore. What did we play?

Ell played possibly the worst game he has ever played. Koosh played Shady Part of Me. It reminded Ell of a game but he's not sure which. Rawker played a game that he wished would just die already. FuFu celebrated a proud completion!

We talk about games coming....real soon, have terrible salegues, and beat dead horses.

Elroy, Exe & Chewie settle down once again to discuss their shameful abandonment issues.  Skipping through life's cutscenes, overcoming the improbable, rage rating and forgetting to remember are all laid bare. It's like therapy but with more rambling and funny accents.

Waka faces Warface and lives to tell the tell. Warface never changes, Waka never dies.
