Yeah so we're late again, but you should be used to that by now. Anyway this week, our usual host TJ is out (and apparently will be for the foreseeable future) but we're still attempting this whole talking thing with Matt Gagnon (mattyg), Matt Blumenthal (TheLetterZ), and Chase Becotte (Slizeezyc). This week we talk about a post-Ben Brinkman MLB 2K franchise, as well as touching upon Madden once again as some more updates have been released for that game. From there we try to figure out why EA is so obsessed with Metacritic scores and also ask ourselves if we fear the "casual" gamer. Snowboarding fans can also rejoice since we talk a bit about Shaun White Snowboarding, and gauge the hype when it comes to FaceBreaker. We end the show on a tangent-extravaganza that is beyond explanation. Listen in for allllllll this and more. Oh and since TJ is out right now the iTunes feed isn't being updated until we get someone else to do it, our bad.

Listen to the show: Waiver Wire (6/1)

Z is not so "cue cards" anymore... good show guys. Intro was a C+ since you all spoke at once, but when you all slowed down it turned into a good show.

He has other things in his life that (rightfully) take priority right now.

Hey guys,

Everything's alright. My wife and I are in the final stages of closing on a brand new house (our first) and that's taken a lot out of me. For anyone who's gone through that before, you'll know that it's almost an all-consuming process that takes away every last bit of your free time.

We're closing on the house at the end of June, just after returning from a well deserved Jamaican vacation. I would imagine I'll be back in the swing of things sometime in the beginning of July.

In the meantime, keep on listening to the Waiver Wire. These guys are busting their asses to get this thing out every week (or every other week).

I'll be back soon.

Good to hear that you will be back. I was fearing the worst for you.
