EASTER EGG: Doba apologizes and begs for mercy

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 4: Steamy Late Nights

Unable to record at any reasonable hour, Ben and Doba are forced to record super late at night for the first time. Not that this is really a problem… actually, it’s not a problem so why do we care? Also, there was no steam there… OR WAS THERE? … no, no there wasn’t… huh…

You are now reading this in that one sexy black man’s voice we all know anyways, aren’t you…

This week’s big topics include quiet late night time, we’re on iTunes, Doba’s senior paper on Competitive Gaming, The Megas take on Dr. Light and Dr. Wily, Studio Ghibli films, the Oscars, Persona 3, Persona 4, Kingdom Hearts, Sega’s Toylets, the inside of a Yoshi, how to make a good sequel, how DVDs work, Ben’s war with Facebook, and Freeman’s Mind.

This week’s Random Topic is: Reasons to move out of your parents’ house.

This week’s Ben Bitches rant: Dolphins.
