So Stark and I sit down and decide to go over what we have been doing in our lives over the last bit of time, because it has been long enough that that might as well be retro. Also I force him to talk about anime because I have ingested an unholy amount of that substance recently as well, and I honestly think that is something that we can all have a good old time talking about. We oddly talk about our growing love of Nintendo and our growing hatred of Cracked.com. Stark also mentions that he backed a kickstarter (the website can be found here), which just goes to show that if you make something perverted enough you can get anyone behind it.
Stark and I go out of our way to talk about indie games for most of the episode. I don’t know if you can tell from the title, but Stark didn’t think that many of the games were very good. That could be because almost all of them are per-release states right now, and it could just be that they are going to suck forever–you be the judge of that kind of thing. Among the titles were Steam Marines, Dungeon Explorers, and a couple others. I also talk about Harvest moon for awhile, but you know what, Stark can talk at length about Moe kills the least that I can do is try and make everyone sleep talking about taking care of cows and what have you.
Recently a man in Bay City, Michigan, was arrested for the theft of an Xbox 360 Elite, a Nintendo Wii, a GPS unit, and $250, yet strangely leaving behind his own PlayStation 3. What could be the motivation behind such a crime? Could this be the most insane statement ever made by a system fanboy? The answer is pills.
It turns out the suspect, Joshua Beck, just can’t get enough of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, and stole these items in order to pay for his habit. Even worse it turns out this junkie is friends with the victim, and even attempted to convince his friend to sell off the game consoles for money earlier that day. Beck has been arraigned with 2nd degree home invasion and larceny in a building, and has a bond of $50,000 over his head.
