Episode #23: In Memory of Mini Naruto

Naruto finds Bejeweled to play
Even anime characters enjoy bejeweled

So E3 has come and gone but as always that leaves us with far too much news to cover.

That’s why this weeks podcast is pretty much filled with follow-ups, which makes it a shame that unfortunately Gow had to work so couldn’t be here for recording.

That means it’s another speedy run-through of the key articles, just to make sure that you don’t have to go a week without the news.

As always we’re still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played.
