Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 6] : Pac-Man with a Plumber

Pac-Man with a Plumber

In this week’s episode of the Half-Glass Gaming podcast, we pit Tetris against Columns to determine the true champion of the strategically-dropping-things-into-a-pile genre. Things get a little ugly when Dr. Mario and Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine join the fray, but that’s just how we like things: ugly.

Speaking of ugly things, we talk about the merits of graphical prowess. Fortunately, we’ve done the research, and we have a lot to say about this topic. Especially Josh. Someone probably needs to calm that guy down.

Also, we have an update on the amiibo situation from Episode 3, and we show off a thoughtful gift from a listener/fan. You can send more of those our way, folks. Don’t be shy.
