Why try out games and form your own opinions when you can sit back and let the 8-4-some do it for you? This episode the newly-reunited gang takes on the (Press up!) new Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Asura’s Wrath demos (Right, RIGHT!), sparking a lively debate on quicktime (Tap ‘A’ repea—ALRIGHT ENOUGH!) events that pops up outta nowhere like…you know what. Speaking of outta nowhere: Wut up with that 3DS stand that comes included with Kid Icarus: Uprising? Plus the Independent Games Festival finalists, Yu Suzuki, avatar tattoos, and speculation on redesigned 3DS hardware and next-gen timing for Sony and Microsoft. (Hit ‘Download’!)
