You know Steve Fulton as Jupiter Jones. Did you know he’s like an elf in that he works on toys in a professional capacity? Did you know that I once blew him off like the diva that I am?

I’m not even going to type triggercut’s real name here. You just have to listen to hear it. It’s that awesome. From the awesomeness of a name that rhymes with Bornhostile, we talk a bit of music, a bit about the restaurant business, and then discuss the single best horror game of all time. And I’m not just saying that as a set-up for a Kanye West gag. I’m saying that because it’s totally true.

Also, listen to win a free bad surprise game on the platform of your choice. And congratulations to Drastic for for scoring a copy of Pure, a racing game everyone’s already forgotten.

Tom Chick, Christien Murawski, and Kelly Wand engage in a spoiler-laden discussion of Book of Eli. Listener discretion is advised due to harsh language, shouting, and amputee-related perversity. Haven’t seen Book of Eli yet? Then fast forward to the 53-minute mark for this week’s 3×3: movies that make great use of weather.

Gabe Lewis talks about why he’s bailing on Los Angeles. Then he talks Baldur’s Gate, even though he’s never finished it. What a poser! He even accuses me of online sexual deviancy. But there’s a seriously special treat at the one hour and twelve minute mark. If you listen to just three minutes of a podcast this year, make it the last three minutes of this one.

Also, listen to win a free game — it’ll be a surprise and it’ll probably suck! — on the platform of your choice. And congratulations to Deadbuffalo for getting stuck with, err, I mean for scoring a copy of Prototype.

Tom Chick, Christien Murawski, and Kelly Wand aren’t really crazy about Youth in Revolt. One of us is even angry. It speaks volumes that we move on to this week’s 3×3 at the 37-minute mark. Meet us there if you haven’t seen Youth in Revolt and we’ll talk about our favorite gas station scenes. We come up with some doozies!

Hey, it’s Andrew Mayer talking about how social games will take over the world! And he’s not even saying that like it’s a bad thing! That’s why I recorded the first ten minutes with monkeys typing on typewriters in the background. At least that’s what the weird interference sounds like to me. It stops almost exactly at the ten minute mark. Sorry about that. I have fired my engineer.

Listen to win Prototype for the PC. Yep, Prototype. For the PC. It’s a really fun game. And congratulations to JPR for scoring a copy of Forza 3 for the Xbox 360.

Tom Chick, Christien Murawski, and Kelly Wand disagree about Terry Gilliam’s latest movie and how it does and doesn’t get around the fact that Heath Ledger died before it was finished. If you haven’t seen Imaginarium yet, meet us at the 47-minute mark to talk about movies that aren’t ruined by babies, who are notorious for ruining movies.
