Episode 211: Taint Misbehavin’

This week’s episode is free of any high fantasy taint. The guys kick off the Metacritic fantasy league with a few major releases and celebrate a successful night of getting out-gunned in Team Fortress 2. Kaz drives everything but a Pontiac Aztek in Forza 4, Tom leaves it to cleaver in Gears of War 3, Tony declares that Orcs Must Die! and Justin plays the latest “Only on Playstation” releases – EufloriaRochard and Sideway NY. Plus, the legend of Zydrunas Ilgauskus, Zoroastrianism, CWRU’s The Bridge and ever-timely “Mr. Show” references.
