Joystiq Podcast 123 - 456 edition

This week we welcome a special guest to the show, Justin Russo, who won his spot by helping out fellow JPAGger Wesley Johnson to get a dead guy's gums grafted onto his own. But it's not just a show about him, we've got tons of discussion about the new Assassin's Creed, hug chat with Ken Levine, alleged Rockstar shadiness and Dark Void.

Plus there's Tip O' The Week, Stump JC and all the usual garbage. Enjoy. Oh, and thanks to Mike Suszek for the unfunny but inexplicably popular photoshop.
