Come listen in, why don't you?

Episode 107 - Joe Spiderman: Remastered

"It'll be a short one" Lee said.


From scalpers, to Spiderman. There's so much for the boys to chat about this episode. Everyone has a new shiny box, and everyone has games to play on them (and old games to watch load at lightning fast speed).

Episode 105 -The End of An Era

And here we are, for the first time since the Character Unlock podcast came to be, we are about to see a new generation of consoles hit TV units, Shelves, desks, whatever around the world.

So this episode, the boys left the normal nonsense at the door and have spent a couple of hours discussing the games that made this most recent generation for them.

Some games are obvious, some are a bit out there, but every one is an excellent addition to any "games of the generation" list.
