HORSE is a street basketball activity where you one-up your competitor in a display of skills. Each time you are defeated you get a letter.  The first one to HORSE loses.

THPS had a HORSE mode where you would challenge another player.  You had the ability to change the word HORSE to any other word, which you could conceal from the other player, so as the game progressed they would have their insulting moniker slowly revealed to them (which ordinarily was profane and, or absurd).

Foolz, your recounting of A Virus Named Tom reminded me of Fat Worm Blows a Sparky.

No new iTunes reviews, I checked this morning.

EDIT: We do have many more listens than we usually do at this point in the cycle though.  Maybe Foolz warded them off Hyperdimension Neptunia with his frank interpretation of the content therein.

We had more people download from the feed since July.  The flash plays were higher, but I kind of throw them out as they always go higher on the longer shows (from people stopping and re-starting).

When I said there wasn't much paedophilia in the game I imagine that turned off the vast majority of our listeners. Sad

On the contrary, I'm glad there isn't that much "moe" in the game. Mugen Souls is downright sickening.

Really? I seriously doubt there's very few people that listen to the podcast. It can't be smaller than the number of people that saw the 210 minute cut of Caligula.
