Some of you are familiar with the story of how Failcast came to be, and how it was basically all Wiisucks' fault that you're subjected to this on a weekly basis. Well. It turns out that Wiisucks has made his own podcast. Yes, that's right, you can now download his fail right here. I don't want to spoil much for you, but lets just say that he is clearly better at our profession then we are. Anyone who aspires to fail could learn from his advanced techniques.
Moving on to the reason you're probably here: we felt like releasing another installment of our attempts to fail. Despite some initial confusion, our host Yashoki gets the show on the road with regulars Charlie, King3vbo, and Necros, joined this week by the amazing Screaming Red Face. Um...I really don't have anything else to say about this episode except that it makes me feel like I'm in Japan.
And away we go!
