We try to re-create the Xbox Live Summer of Arcade by playing through Number None’s Braid. In this episode, we rewind and go forward, rewind and go forward but then Moe has to separate the kids. “I never thought I would talk about Soulja Boy on this podcast but Crank Dat, I guess?” Come back on Wednesday, August 9th for Episode 005 – we are playing through Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

Players: Jacob McCourt (@JacobMcCourt), Michael Ruffolo (@ruffolom) and Moe Murtadi (@mmurtadi)
