    From Franzia’s new marketing campaign:

    “Do you spend most of your days alone, here remembering how great life used to be?  When you had a steady job at the liquor store, rx and had everyone fooled into thinking you were going to graduate in 6 years?  Back when you could tell yourself this was just a phase everyone goes through?  Before your days were filled with emptiness, surgeon self-loathing, and a diet of chicken salad sandwiches to save rent money?”

    “Because here at Franzia, we remember the good old days.  And we think it’s high time you did something about it”

    “We can’t offer you a job in the career field of your choosing, or access to a time machine so you can tell the younger version of yourself not to buy weed from that undercover cop.  Hell, if we let you use a time machine you’d probably just fuck that up too”

    “But what we can offer you is five litres of barely adequate wine dispensed from a plastic bladder inside a box for around ten bucks”

    “And at least that’s something”

    On this week’s episode:

    Women.  And their nonsensical intuitions.

    Weighing in at an hour and forty-three minutes, ed I dare say this is one of our longest episodes ever.  With a mountain of news, allergist feedback, and us getting sidetracked talking about the existence of god, this thing is a monster.  Also, Blake has decided his is now made of gold.  MONGLERS UNITE.

    News: Miller hits up PAX East and turns is back on The Duke, Fic’s nips are all atwitter over Sword and Sorcery EP, Activision and EA mired in lawsuit hell, BAFTA winner’s announced – Peter Molyneux pretends to still be relevant, THQ investors flee after bad Homefront reviews despite decent sales, Jeff Gerstmann update – still overweight, and Japanese earthquake’s affect on the gaming industry.

    With William Miller absent this week for PAX, this site Fic and Buck must tackle the issues by themselves.  And without the show’s so-called silent glue, info things get a little weird.  I mean seriously, what the hell is an “Egg Baby” Justin Fic?

    Smooch.

    Ahhh. I love the smell of a podcast I didn’t have to edit. In the morning. Smells like, men’s health laziness. Or a delicious 420 calorie McGriddle. That’s all thanks to our new audio editor CraigReed! From now on, page he’ll be helping us get these shows out to you guys faster. And by that, erectile I mean until he gets angry at us and quits after like 3 months. You know like some other editors we know.

    News: Nintendo Still Pretending the Boat isn’t Sinking, Notch Works on New Card Game – No One Excited, Visceral Games Works on ‘Something’, Miller and Fic Apple Nipps A-Twitter with iPad 2 Reveal, Bungie Likely Working on MMO While Shareholders and Fans Weep

    Judgement: BulletStorm (360)

    Also on this week’s show, we discuss sports. Which ones are fun, which ones are boring (looking at you baseball), and which ones need more GUNZ. We debate optical media, Blake again laments the loss of his beloved Dreamcast, and our listeners continue to terrify us.

    Editing.  It’s a bitch.  The process seems to be taking longer and longer each week, visit and between two podcasts, classes, and trying to steal money from children, my free time is next to nothing.  So this week’s show is a bit late.  You can cry about it with the other babies in the forums, or apply for a the notorious position of BDPE audio editor.  Just check out this thread to apply.

    News: FTC to Regulate Smurf Berries, Minecraft Coming to XBLA Thanks to DBAD licensing, 3DS Launch Details Unveiled to Ever Shrinking Nintendo Fanbase, Billy Mitchell Still King of Classic Gaming, iPad Rumors Run Rampant
