Read the Manual & the SMYN Network: The Year in Review

OOPS there’s no full RTM this week. Doba was painfully busy editing Red Carpet, helping with GOTY, and hosting the 24 Hour Cast. So that happened. That all happened. That all happened and it all happened at once.

Instead, take this bit that ended up being WAY too long for the GOTY. It’s RTM and the hosts of the other Network shows talking about their years in music, movies, and games. Think of it as a mini RTM and we’ll see you next cycle with RTM 55.

Episode 30: SSX Ubercast Is Dumb

Named so because Charmy was supposed to be our guest and bailed on us last minute. Not that we’re bitter or anything, totally not. That’s okay though, cause we got a better guest. He’s awesome, best guest we’ve ever had. Not sure we’ll ever top it. Also, Ben talks for a loooooooong time about new anime. So be warned!

This week’s big topics include Girls Generation, Turntable, Pokemon Red/Blue soundtrack, Super Meat Boy: Choice Piano Cuts, PeanutButterGamer, Tangled, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Recorder to Randoseru, Working!!, Ben’s huge talk about the new anime season, Crazy Stupid Love, Pixar Christmas specials, Ocarina of Time, Revenge of the Titans, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Katawa Shoujo.

Episode 12: Read The Expiration Date

This week Doba looked at his list and realized… that there was pretty much nothing on it. It was then that it fully dawned on Doba and he realized that he was in fact an extremely boring individual. So in order to combat this boring-ness, Doba invited long time (can we even call it long time?) listener ToonLucas onto the show. And then a demon bird invaded the show.

So, as punishment, Doba ruined Rugrats. For everybody.

This week’s big topics include Tom Jones, the Super Meat Boy OST, the Sly Cooper OSTs, the really bad Frankenstein movie, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Lucky Star, the true story of Rugrats, noisy animals, LittleBigPlanet, Sim City 4, Pokemon Black/White, why Devil May Cry 3 is a bad game, Minecraft and Project Mata-Nui, why FOX News is stupid, why Minecraft makes us scared of the dark again, Art of Games voting results, why Chell doesn’t speak, Valve’s snack room, how the Potato Sack was made, creepy video game urban legends, and Slender Man.

This week’s Random Topic is: Christmas.

This week’s Doba Top Five subject: Doba’s top five animes of all time.

ENDING SONG: Innocent Blue ~ Star Driver
