Chris Antista and Brett Elston spent their weekends slaving away over hot laptops to bring you this very special episode of TalkRadar, which delivers all the Comic-Con game coverage you could possibly care to hear out of ear buds.
Yesterday we played goody two shoes and honored the most effective and selfless Final Fantasy heroes in the series’s history. Today, we’re treading the Sith-tinged “fast and easy” path and cuddling up to the franchise’s worst (as in best) villains.
