Caution: A lot of bosom discussion in this one.

Last week we competed against Polygon.com's video game podcast The Besties and stole their halftime. This week? We review and compete against the Nerdist's Indoor Kids. Who will win? What will we permanently steal from their show? Only God Himself knows.

Plus: a little newsie-woosie, Go For Retro review of Wabbit for the Atari 2600, Dishonored DLC, Elizabeth's increased bust size in the "Rapture" DLC, Elysium and more.

We went High Concept! Each week we will compete against a popular video game podcast, review them and rob them of an element of their show. Then, like Mega Man, we will make that element a permanent fixture in our own show! It's all part of our quest to go from the the world's most stupid video game podcast to the world's greatest. 

In this episode we fight our new mortal enemies: The Besties, consisting of that fearsome foursome, Chris Plante, Justin McElroy, Griffen McElroy and Russ Frushstick, and their abused animal mascot, New York Giraffe.

Games Mentioned in this Episode:

When Ian Fell in the Machine

Corey thinks the monsters in The Last of US are designed by Naughty Dog to be subtly comedic.

Corey gets defensive about Jagger talking about the group public orgies of the religious movement that Corey is a part of called Adi Da.

Jagger tries to talk about Spartacus: Legends, and Final Fantasy XIV but is mocked by Corey for not taking spirituality seriously.

The Pleiadians are an alien race that we can communicate with by channeling their spirits. These spirits include spirit crocadiles, King Lizard, and Doctor Lizard. Or something like that. They talk about something having to do with gilded invitations to the COSMIC PARTY, and getting excited by the the kundalini fire and having cosmic orgasms across multiple dimensions. Corey explains. 

But first! Jagger gets made at Corey for walking away from the microphone while Jagger is talking and tries to fire Corey from the show.
