Things take a turn for the weird as Kaz, Tom and Justin tackle oddities like D4, Murasaki Baby and Dangan Ronpa. And while Final Fantasy is a known quantity, the fifteenth numbered sequel leaves an impression on the guys based on its TGS trailer. Plus, Smash Bros. controller debates, Theatrhythm double dipping and revisiting Mercenary Kings.
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, America’s favorite green soft drink (that wasn’t dnL) is back! While the guys gleefully awaits their first Surge shipment, they pass the time by talking about some of their favorite games of the moment. Kaz is burning rubber in the new Forza Horizon 2 demo, Justin is maining Mega Man in the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS demo, Neil is collecting a bit of loot in Destiny and Tom is Lobo-ing around in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Plus, Dragon Quest V, DanganRonpas 1 and 2, The Walking Dead Season 2 finale and more.

Money…money talks! The Pack is playing the classics on this week’s episode, as they delve into tweets about Necrodancer, changing gaming tastes, and the Mojang/Microsoft rumors. Afterwards, Tom plumbs the depths of the pigeon psyche in Hatoful Boyfriend, Justin clumsily shuffles around in Dance Central Spotlight, and Kaz careens through space in Velocity 2X.
After a week off, the Pack returns to address the elephant in the room: just how many Amiibos did Justin preorder? But before they can get to that and other Nintendo tidbits, the guys address the current “#GamerGate” controversy and the vile harassment happening online. Afterwards, Kaz bluffs his way through Fibbage, Tom zaps through Gunvolt (both the Mighty and Azure Striker flavors), and Justin is on the case in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright.
