Xbox 360 Fancast 047 -- Revenge of the Mongoose

Just when we thought it was safe to record the Fancast again, the dreaded internet mongoose reared its ugly head once more. We had some recording issues this week thanks to the aftermath of the vicious winter storm that zapped the US last week. Still, a Fancast is expected and a Fancast we will provide in rain, sleet, or snow. This week, we discuss the success of Assassin's Creed, new Tomb Raider details, and delve into the ever vociferous high definition format war. Also, we should point out that we have a shiny new Zune link that will allow you to download the Fancast straight from the Zune Marketplace. Click. Listen. Learn.

Knuckles- if you're so darn busy, why have you commented on this thread twice in a day?

Richard, Dustin, and Alexander-- you're doing great. Acts of God may be setting you back , but everyone is understanding of the technical quality.
