Episode 167 finds us revisiting an old gaming friend sporting a slightly more youthful facelift. Or something. We're playing the 1984 MILLIPEDE which was pretty fun...when it was called CENTIPEDE.
"Centi" means hundred. "Milli" means Vanilli's disgraced music fraud partner.
Whoops! I meant "milli" means "thousand". At this rate, I would expect the next title in the "pede" franchise will be Gazilipede or maybe Bazillipede. I'd play those.
This week's short story is: "Untitled Diploda-Based Comedy Pilot Pitch Meeting".
