Zero Cool Episode 75: The return of JohnnyViral Questions



Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen!  We've got a new(ish) episode of Zero Cool ready for you, and in it, we see the return of the JohnnyViral Question, a former staple of the series.  Note that this was recorded before PAX Prime 2013, so some attitudes come up in response to a question about webcomics that were not informed by the most recent controversy.  We'll probably talk more about that during the next episode, which is recording today!  Here's what we talked about in this episode.

- New StreetPass games
Pikmin 3
Borderlands 2
Papers, Please
