The gang is all back (plus one Brian Rowe) for Jumping the Shark #121 or, as Bill refers to it, #129, #212, and #46. Yes, it’s his attention to detail that makes him such an exciting host; that and his killer segues. This week Brian talks about how he shrugs off stress by playing games that make him angry, games like Trials Evolution. Bill goes walking with the dead in TellTale’s latest series of episodic adventures. I descend into the legend that is Grimlock or Grinkjaw, or whatever it is we’re all calling it this week. As for Brandon, I’m pretty sure he sat there with a mirror in his hand so he could admire is fine mane of hair. Oh, and we return to the used games discussion as we ponder whether or not it’s coincidence that the heads of studios like Crytek have been coming out so regularly of late to decry the used games business. All this and more on a very special episode of
Blossom Jumping the Shark!

Been looking for possible names for my Diablo II Barbarian, thanks to Bill I think I may have found one and possibly one for my Paladin too since I don’t think Grinkjaw Grimcock will fit as one name.
TECHNICALLY Grinkjaw Grimcock is a Sexomancer, but that will suffice.
I’ll go along with that, I don’t have a Necromancer anymore I’ll make a new one and call him Grimcock, he’ll specialize in Bone skills.
I have never been more proud of our show.
Meet Grimcock, he’s not much yet but after doing some research it turns out that “Bonemancer” is actually a viable build and one of his key skills is called Bone Spear.
Stryc9, you have no idea the level of awesome that this is.
Blossom made me chuckle. Thanks.
Loved this podcast. I liked that Bill made my argument that $60 bucks is too risky of an investment with no mechanism for getting that money back out. Keep up the good work, guys! You always make my monday morning hour commute!
The question is… what was Bill drinking? 😉
Decaf Tea. (Really)
That’s some strong decaf! You really seemed more hyped than usual.
