    If you've been following along on the Giant Bombcast, then you know that the rest of those jerks made a command decision to totally cut the WiiWare and DSiWare portions of the program. This is the same portion that was nominated for an award last year. Last time I checked, "Vinny saying curse words' didn't get nominated for jack nothing! "Brad spoiling games?" Nada! Zip! And don't even get me started on the "Ryan mispronouncing game names" portion of the show.
     
    But I'm not going to complain. I'm going to do something about it. And so, it's my great pleasure to introduce you to the rogue operation I've spent upwards of 35 minutes putting together:

     I MADE THE ART MYSELF AND IT'S THE BEST
     I MADE THE ART MYSELF AND IT'S THE BEST
    If you'd like to subscribe to this obviously superior podcast, the RSS feed for it is RIGHT HERE. THROW DOWN THE SHACKLES OF YOUR OPPRESSORS AND LET FREEDROM REIGN! 
     
    Next week I'm hoping to get a special guest on the show, but I don't want to spoil it! Stay tuned, WiiWare and DSiWare faithful! Stay tuned.

    Quite glad this segment's still alive, even if it's been exiled from the Bombcast.

    This seems like a bad idea, but I'll judge it after I listen to it.
    Edit: Of course, it's for the community, I shouldn't be so self-centered. It just doesn't interest me in particular at all.
    Although it's a great way for Jeff to hone his podcastin' skills.
