2010: The Year We Make Contact...and subsequently go broke

It's actually kind of an improvement.
It's actually kind of an improvement.

Well, would you look at that -- another podcast! And this one's blessedly much shorter than the previous, meaning you get plenty of on-topic discussion and analysis without having to meander through dozens of games and several months of backlogged news to cover.

This podcast picks up where the last one left off, with the gang discussing the myriad top-tier releases of the first quarter of 2010. A near-complete list of titles is available after the jump for your perusal.

As always, thanks for listening, and let us know what you think!
