Of Superheroes [Podcast]

In this week’s episode of Borked, David Eagle and Jay are joined by Andrew McAlpine.  We discuss new games you should check out, Disney’s acquisition of Marvel, and the evolution of single and multi-player games.

As a special gift to our loyal listeners, this episode features an outtro track created by our very own Andrew McAlpine of Gryffindor House Thugz.  I’m totally psyched to give you guys a chance to hear this song, as a huge fan of Nerdcore, Harry Potter inspired Rap is very close to my heart.  To find out more about GH Thugz, check out their MySpace.  You can download the full version of the track “Stand Up” for free right here.

I hope you enjoy this weeks episode of Borked. Check back on here on Monday for the Pax Wrap-up with myself, Rev, Jay, and whoever else we can con into joining us.
