Back from break, stealing thunder and making it rain potato chips, son! That's how cortandfatboy do! Ryan Fleming is on hand to witness one of the best technological breakthroughs known to man: The ability to make a potato chip taste exactly like Beef Ramen. It's true. Other things that are true? Paul Christoforo is a dumbass - the postmortem on that fracas is done. Nerdfighting is a thing now: How to know if you're doing it right. Ryan's game of 2011 is announced, and it leads to a Fatboy gripe-session about storytelling in gaming, and why Mortal Kombat isn't good storytelling, it's a great example of what's WRONG with story in video games. The mischief-making of Saints Row the Third, the taken-for-granted greatness of Legend of Zelda, the perfect application of Siri, and the crisis on infinite Zaires - all of which are discussed on this, the first show of 2012. We're back! Prepare thy ears.
