Podcast 95 – Thundercade

One of us is well versed in Thundercade. A shmup. A very good shmup. The best shmup. I don’t know of a better shmup, do you? I mean, really. It’s a shmup. God save the shmup.

The other has been away. A long way away. Probably a lot of miles. To the best place. Have you seen the donuts over there? I like donuts. Who doesn’t? God save the donuts.

What were we doing again?
