Episode 40

We turned 40 this week.

It's manufactured milestones like this that provide the despondant with opportunities to take full account of how little one has achieved.
Consider yourself warned.

Thanks, this was another great episode. I particularly enjoyed the Lara Croft discussion - I'm not so much as offended by them implying she narrowly escapes a rape and that its portrayed semi-graphically in the game, it bothers me more that they could have used a dozen other scenarios to explain how her "hardened attitude and skills" were born. To me it feels like they went with an implied rape to generate buzz for an otherwise (IMO) who cares game franchise. With games like Uncharted, for the LC series to have any kind of chance to compete they needed something besides pixelated T&A to compete with and this rape thing seems to be what they came up with.

Also, special thanks to Mike for the mentions - you're right, I never played Metal Gear but I heard good things!
