Fantastic Neighborhood 23: Poop-Socked It.

Welcome back to another week of mayhem. Jon plays Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for some reason, also Metal Gear Solid 2 and Driver: San Francisco. Fred plays Sanctum, Beat Hazard, and Blocks That Matter. Then movie talk, featuring Indie Game: The Movie and Batman (SPOILERS – see segment breakdown). In Hype Bonanza, we decide to play Borderlands 2, we give a bunch of games to a lucky listener, and lament Nintendo’s financial woes. Game club this week is The Walking Dead Episode 2, next week is Machinarium. We answer a very special letter about our retro gaming past, then send it home with some great outtakes. And a pledge drive in there, somewhere.
