Thanks for checking out our first video episode! We’ve been doing the podcast thing for quite awhile (this is episode 80 if you can believe it!), and we’ve finally decided to film and shorten it. In this episode, you’ll learn about the new Halo 3 maps out April 15, why Wii owners should get excited (and start saving money), which songs are the latest out for Rock Band (PS3 and 360), and why the gaming community might soon be free of Jack Thompson.

During the second half, watch our resident Smash Brothers experts (along with Special Guest Justin Dean) fight it out in a roundtable discussion. Thanks again and please subscribe on youtube and leave us comments and ratings! We’ll have new episodes every two weeks.

This week features the song “Helix Nebula” by Anamanaguchi
