I’ll admit it I scare easily, I don’t like the unknown and I’ve been traumatized out of the water. Needless to say I’ve had a couple of moments in my gaming career that have more than creeped me out. Yeah sure a few of these moments are from games you really wouldn’t expect to scare the living daylights out of someone, but hey what are you gonna do?
We bring in a special guest host, our very own Senior Editor Ron “Calin75” Aquino, to help wrap up the Game Developer Conference and the other news that made the video game world turn this week. Ron reveals how far back he’s reaching into his pile of shame and Kirby finally mixes in other games besides Demon’s Souls. We introduce community feedback when we Commune with the Community and wrap things up by discussing Ron’s latest editorials. We came, we recorded, we conquered. No luck necessary it’s The Last Podcast Episode 13 presented by RRB Games.
Last week we began having difficulties during a routine maintenance operation. Unfortunately, all of our backups and fail safes did not properly restore the site to our current standard. Due to this fact we lost over a month and a half of data, upgrades and most unfortunate of all your comments and forum posts.
