Man, have we got loads to talk about! First of all, games! We’ve played a bunch. Purchases, rentals, demos, the whole shebang. The brothers Minotti quite enjoyed Civilization Revolution, Ajguy didn’t care much for Ninja Gaiden II, and they both had their first experience with Dungeons and Dragons. Listen to the chilling tale! In news, we’ve got more Xbox Bluray rumors, Lucas Arts layoffs, and a new force unleashed in Soul Calibur IV.

Also, be sure to watch Ajguy fail at the second edition of the Great American Ajguy Gaming Quiz.
