Hello today. We begin with a routine check to see if this podcast is enhancing our damaging our love of Xenogears. We move on to lose faith in the acumen of our favorite doctor, determine the best air-jacking sequence in role-playing games, make sense of Deathblows, become suspicious of Hammer's connections, appreciate framing and directing decisions, acknowledge airship feints, hat-tip Grahf's non-stop flexing and insistence on remaining "fucking awesome," and shake our heads at a certain pirate's rejection of democratic military authority. Flipping switches and riding conveyor belts is some of my favorite content.
