Killer is Dead

Disclaimer: weeaboos with a podcast is crude, lewd, and full of dudes. If you are easily offended by dark humor, foul language, and rampant lunacy, then stay far, far away. You have been warned.

On this week’s episode: we play the eccentric and super stylish Killer is Dead, the latest title by Japanese game designer Suda51, and see how it compares to his previous projects. We also read the short story The Umbrella by famed mangaka Jiro Taniguchi and discuss his unique style. Afterwards, we discuss Sony’s PS4 supplies for the console’s upcoming launch and speculate on the nature of hardware shortages and how they sometimes help to create artificial demand. Finally, we finish up the show with some notable news like Blizzard’s decision to shut down Diablo III’s auction houses, the latest gameplay trailer for The Evil Within, new footage of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled Ep. 2, and the Dark Souls II Black Armor Edition pre-order bonuses.
