Sometimes, things go missing. Your keys, your pet frog, your virginity at that 98 Degrees concert. Or in case of former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi, 300 million dollars in stock. Luckily, Nintendo has a trick up it’s sleeve – a wily yet cantankerous crimefigther by the name of Mauchilock.

Also on this week’s show, we discuss the role of non-video gaming, Blake gets bitten by spiders, and Justin Fic gives us some details on his new game, Kung Fu Killforce. If you want a sneak peak, be sure to check it out in the forums.
