Xbox 360 Fancast 034 -- The Doc is in


Ladies and gentlemen, this is the penultimate Fancast before Halo 3. One week from today, we'll be Fancasting and dreaming of the glory that is soon to befall us (we hope). But, that's a week away, and now we must concentrate on the painfully wretched present. And what better way to do that than with a firm dose of sarcasm? And, if you want to do that, why not recruit the man behind Sarcastic Gamer, Jeromy "Doc" Adams. Together, we dissect the hype surrounding Halo 3, drool over Ninja Gaiden 2, laugh at the Engineer from TF2, and take a gander at the Xbox 360's sales numbers. We also discuss the dangers of keeping your Xbox 360 controllers within the general vicinity of children and toilets. Long story short: not the best idea. As always, you'll find links to all the Fancast topics after the break.
