Steve, Jon, and Blair are back with an epic-length barn burner of an episode. Some more discussion of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow leads to spirited debate on the true nature of the series. Some more talk of classic series reborn on modern consoles, and still plenty of time for Enslaved and Medal of Honor. And Steve calls out IGN for the second week in a row. Mixed into the pot are digressions on the state of the Japanese gaming industry, how awesome we think Vanquish will or won't be, and how goddamn loud the old X-Menarcade game was. Jon sermonizes on the current "retro gaming" revival spawned by games like Sonic 4 and , and whether or not we're being nickled and dimed to death by publishers due to our blind obedience to classic franchises. Make sure you put aside about 90 minutes for this monster! *Blast Processing theme song by Dan "String Vulture" Moore
