The FATcast that shall not be named!

A collection of men, as handsome as they are intelligent, come together to discuss many great things-it’s mind blowing, it’s death defying and it really must be heard to be believed!

Okay, so we lied, it’s not really death defying, but it does feature; The Ultimate Warrior (not in person), Nights into Dreams, birthday wishes, fictitious LFG awards, Metal Gear Solid and much, much more! It could be the greatest FATcast yet, but it probably isn’t.

Looking for my future…

It’s also one of those highly coveted moments in gaming history that cries out for a new generation of gamers to pay it a visit via the fully functioning Playstation Network time machine. In short, I want it in HD!

Do you try hiding the body in a nearby cubicle, wash away the blood on your face and arms then hide the murder weapon somewhere? Or do you just run out the restroom towards the front door, hoping the officer doesn’t catch you? Decisions, decisions… Continue reading
