Podcast: The Besties: Metroid Dread is Here to Save Us All

It only took 19 years for a true 2D sequel to Metroid Fusion, and now that it's here, we're basking in the glow of what may be the best Metroid game ever made.

Also some fun scary movies: Slaxx, The Boys from County Hell, The Columnist, and 13 Ghosts. [more inside]
