Good podcast. The only thing stopping it from getting a 7-star rating is the language. Not enough cursing.

Not a family friendly show

I know I'll get a lot of grief for saying this. The latest show started of with a string of bar talk Nothing against that but if they want to go mainstream it needs to be presentable to a general audience I share my love for classic arcades with my family. I can't play this with my teens in the car
