Reviewing indie games is tough. More than with a big budget release, you can feel the warmth of the blood that was pumped into every vein of a smaller title.

Satoru Iwata dies at age 55 of bile duct growth, but remains very much alive in our hearts.
It is rare that the president of a wealthy corporation passes away and a community reaches out to show their support. Many companies are blindly focused on profit margins and bottom lines, shirking the responsibility to their audience. But Nintendo is no ordinary public company and Satoru Iwata was no ordinary CEO.
In the spirit of the Fourth of July and in the spirit of reusing old content, we have a list of the most American Americans in Video Game history, and a video to go with it!
There is fun to be had and audio issues galore in episode #32 of The Spoiler Cast (seriously, why can no podcast ever go according to plan?). Dan sounds like he has been injected with horse tranquilizers and is getting cut off repeatedly. The others sound fine I guess.
