Fantastic Neighborhood 37: Spooktacular?

Despite the hurricane and public transit shutdown, Fred and I (Jon) scraped (Skyped) together…something. After a spooky start, we chat RiffTrax, Dishonored, trying to get back to Borderlands 2, Argo, and playing Streets of Rage with a significant other. A less-than-tastefully named Hype section features Sega polygonal classics, Wreck-It Ralph, and Skyfall. Game Club features the penultimate chapter of Telltale’s The Walking Dead.

On a serious note, while we complain about having to Skype a podcast, we both fared really well in the hurricane. We lost nothing, not even cable. We’re both from the East Coast, and I spent my formidable years (read: high school) at the Jersey Shore, an area devastated by this storm. Our thoughts are with everyone who is struggling right now, but having people in your thoughts or prayers is the same as doing nothing, and the American Red Cross can always use help. Donate a little cash, if you’re able. To make a quick $10 donation, text REDCROSS to 90999. If you’d prefer to help out some four-legged, winged, or slithering friends in need, text HUMANE to 80888 to send $10 to the American Humane Association.
