"Pete and Frank are back and at it once again to talk games, games, and a little life. Joining them this week is a very special mystery guest, who is certain he can be taken and seized and ride that seizure all the way to the top. He also plays DOTA, which the guys talk a bit more about. Pete brings ‘Dungeons Dashers’ and ‘Castles in the Sky’ in for discussion and Frank talks about ‘War of the Roses’, ‘Lose Lose’ from Zach Gage, and passively mentions Whale Trail. The guys then talk news and have a heated Rando discussion which sparks some debate between Pete and our very special guest."
