Episode 37: Oh My God WHY IS THIS SO LONG

Ever wanted to listen to an episode of Read The Manual for a straight 6 hours? Well first off, if that’s something you’ve ever wanted to do you should probably hop in the nearest MRI and get your brain scanned. While you wait you can listen to this episode which fulfills that sick and strangely specific fantasy.

Not only do we have the most guests on any episode ever to create the longest episode to date (and hopefully longest we ever do), but we also bring back an old segment from the past. The Copout makes a return this week as we talk some Persona 3 and 4. WARNING: The last two hours of the show are very spoiler heavy for the Persona games, so listen at your own risk.

This week’s big topics include the Gorillaz, Frank Sinatra, Kamen Rider, Rosario + Vampire, Sacred Blacksmith, Grimme, Pulp Fiction, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Tom Goes to the Mayor, The House of Small Cubes, Cat Soup and Cat Man, Spice & Wolf, 5 Centimeters Per Second, Darker Than Black, Gunslinger Girl, Angel Beats!, Cyberbully, Left 4 Dead, Borderlands, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Okami, Juniper’s Knot, Xenoblade, an evil Sonic ROM hack, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Super Robot Taisen, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Heavy Rain.

Episode 36: Ben Talks A Lot And Doba Kills Teddie

In this episode you’ll hear a whole bunch of stuff like Ben talking about things for what Doba timed as an hour. Or Doba being angry and hating a character from a game more than he’s really hated anything ever. It’s just another day for Read The Manual. Just another strange… strange day. Oh, and Doba got a new laptop that actually manages to be MORE horrible. Sometimes.

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.
