Kat abandoned USG to go run with the bulls in Spain, so it's up to Nadia and special guests Anthony John Agnello and John Learned to keep the show afloat (they are both recovering from the black plague; please excuse their coughs).

Then our conversation smoooothly segues into the challenges of reviewing lengthy games like RPGs. Enjoy, and don't trust any dolphin that offers to let you jump off its stupid pointed face.
