Half the team was on vacation for a while, so this week's show is a wee bit shorter than normal--but don't let that fool you into thinking it's any less awesome! 'Cause it ain't!

Ryan and Matt are both long-term Assassin's Creed fans and decided to give the PSP version a go. Low budget, yes, but a fair--if clipped--portable representation of the series original. The broadside conclusion is that it's worth while, provided you're a portable owner of the PlayStation kind.
Perhaps having felt the sting of competition, the skating franchise most synonymous with the idea of risking life and limb on a skinny board with wheels has jumped on the plastic-simulacrum gravy train. Does the peripheral meet the demands of our own, dynamic skater-duo Jason and Cesar? What about the indoor-bound Ryan? IRL on an actual board-with-wheels may be the best place to "experience" the life of a skater.
