Episode 1 – Riding Your Face
Duration: 00:51:44 • Size: 35.53 MB

Join Lucas, Matt and Jammy as they discuss the games they are currently playing and what their favourite games were of 2010 (not a Game Of The Year list). They also discuss their excitement for the list of Triple A titles around the corner and what they each are most looking forward to in 2011. To wrap up they cover the Christmas that just passed and what each of them received (that relates to gaming, not to Jammy’s fetishes). It was a lot of fun and hopefully it brings a smile to your face also.
