Ding! Did you hear that sound? That’s the sound of a trivia explosion! You just struck The Question Block and now trivia is going to spill out. You might want to grab a towel or something because trivia can stain quite easily. The best thing to do is make sure you only get this trivia in your ears; just like nature intended. Without Tony and his internet connection, I called in a guest host to help with the show. You may know the name Shannon. He’s kind of a big deal. Remember that whole impossible Animal Crossing question? Yeah, I forgot too. Shannon didn’t.
The Question Block – 74
Round 1 – Annoying Music
Round 2 – First
Round 3 – Nap Time
Round 4 – Tekken (Shelby)

For all of you unable to watch our Extra Life live stream, you are in luck. We were able to sneak in a few recording sessions while playing games. If you are concerned about audio quality, you have slightly less to worry about. Since we were in my house I was able to use my normal podcast setup. So things sound better than these kind of shows normally do but some people still talk off mic. Extra Life was a blast and we raised some money for a great cause. If while listening to this show you feel compelled to donate, maybe go to our donations page and do so.
Starring – Tony, Micah, Will, Josh, Greg, Shannon, Steve, Shelby

This Free Weekend is both cute and relevant. Below you will find an adorable video of a baby panda. It’s short. A lot of people may be scared of pandas because they are bears, or for whatever reason. I am here to tell you, don’t fear the panda. Not only are they adorable but they eat bamboo. Are you a bamboo stick? No? Then you have nothing to worry about. Pandas also fit in with our Extra Life marathon because we are raising money for the Saint Francis Children’s Hospital and there logo is a panda. Remember, folks, not only are pandas not going to eat your children, they will also heal them. Try it if you don’t believe me.

This is the post for the podcast below. I guess I am supposed to tell you about the show so you’ll want to listen to it. Does that seem strange to anyone else? Spoiler warning for the podcast I guess. This week Micah returns to talk about Street Fighter X Tekken. Meanwhile, Tony reveals his diabolical plan to make Micah spend all his money. While all this is happening, I am taking apart the video card from my computer. Kind of a weird show now that I think about it.

In years past, fighting games haven’t always had their best showing on handheld systems. With limited online capabilities, physical buttons, and technical horsepower, it’s been difficult to capture the console and arcade experience while on the go, but some recent titles on the 3DS, including Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition and Dead or Alive: Dimensions, have started to break the mold. Namco now takes advantage of many 3DS capabilities to deliver its long-running Tekken series in the form of Tekken 3D: Prime Edition.
What You Need to Know
For those not familiar with the series, Tekken is, in most cases, a one-on-one fighting game where players select a character to battle against an opponent in a 3D arena. You wouldn’t know it from this title, but the main series revolves around a martial arts tournament called the The King of Iron Fist Tournament. In fact, Tekken literally translates to “Iron Fist”, and you can even see the Japanese Kanji characters for “Tekken” in the game’s logo. Read more…
