Kind of got out of the habit of writing these. Shame. SHAME. Anyway, Binge Buddies is in full swing with its “Alice in Zombieland” series. They’re on the third one and having a blast. Brok and pal Charriii5 sit down to talk about the importance of accessibility in gaming, which you need to listen to ASAP. Last week’s Demon Dayz is a good one and full of fun banter.
