Episode 28: Invasion

What started out as a normal day in the city of Townsville on Read The Manual was suddenly thrown upside down when the Powerpuff Girls Doba and Ben found their town podcast being invaded by the Beat-Alls two hosts of Games&That! An epic battle ensued! … Actually there was no battle, and we invited them on when they tried to call us. But shut up.

Also, it’s Doba’s birthday, so happy birthday Doba! (Who’s totally not the one writing this post!)

Episode 27: Ben Considers A Guy Fawkes Solution

In the midst of Minecraft drama and moral dilemmas within the cubic world of creative stuff, Ben considers remembering the 5th of November to such accuracy that things will probably be blown up sometime in the near future. He cares not for your pleas or the fact that innocents may also be lost, he sees red and only thinks of revenge at this point…

Ben is basically V but crazier. And not a hero. That’s what we’re trying to say here.
