Better late than never, right? This week Garett and I discuss our favorite weapons in gaming. We also talk about Garett's first impressions of Portal 2 co-op, and Valve's apparent allergy to the number 3.

They See Me Rollin - Ep 5 - You Got Matrixed, Son

Our adventurers decide that now is the time to escape. How do they manage? Surprisingly well, actually. But that doesn't stop them from making a few stupid moves. Listen on the edge of your seat as Jelly forces their hand, Skumk fiddles with keys, and Coen ruins everything.

Big news this past week as Sony announced the Playstation 4 Pro and Nintendo released their new Direct with some fun and interesting 3DS tidbits. We discuss some new games we've been playing including Picross 3D Round 2, and then dive into our thoughts on the console formerly known as Neo, as well how we think it may stack up against Scorpio and the Xbox One S.

Hey folks, we're back with a brand new episode of Box Office Poison! Unfortunately, Jon couldn't make it due to vacation, and Mike was off getting married, so it was left to Karl, Stan, and Jonny to put the show together, and they're all sick! Oof. Well, rain or shine, right?

This time, we go over Last Days in the Desert, Pete's Dragon, Kubo and the Two Strings, Barbershop: The Next Cut and more! Then we answer a few of your questions in Post Office Poison, like when it's okay to bail on a movie, or our picks for 2016's best summer movie.

Have a question for the guys? Let us know via Twitter (@crosstawk), email (, or in the comments section on the site. And be sure to come back in two weeks when we go over Wag the Dog, Mike's Movie of the Month pick.

This episode is all about peripherals. Which ones are our favorites, which ones we thought were flat out terrible, and which ones we're still holding out hope for.

Well, it has come to this.  Syndicated bids farewell for the time being with a long-awaited discussion of critical (and panel) favorite, LOST.  This island drama set the standard for modern sci-fi on television, and introduced viewers to a type of storytelling they'd never seen before.

This episode, we have Luke and Andy on the panel, returning champion Jonathan Metts (Box Office Poison, Austinmates, Discover Music Project) and Crosstawk fearless leader Karl Casteneda (Box Office Poison, A Force To Remember, Rough Draft).  For Jonny, this was his first time watching LOST.  For the rest of us, we were visiting an old friend.

We'll be back someday, when you least expect it.  Until then, keep your Chromecast handy and your Netflix subscription paid.  Thanks for tuning in.

Our heroes are now doing hard time. Locked up with a young girl they have to figure out their escape plans while dealing with some very rude men. All this and Coen exfoliates, we learn the origin of Skumk's name, and Jelly lies then does the right thing.

Also, we apologize for the literal crickets chirping; Skumk really loves the bugs.
