With the speed at which the world changes these days, it's nice when things stay the same, isn't it? Chris and Ludwig are still talking about Final Fantasy XIII and Justin is still being needlessly hostile about it. We've still got emails, we've still got news. Justin awkwardly works in references to MBMBAM. It's almost haunting in its predictability.

Less predictable? This most excellent photoshop, courtesy of Mr. Alan Black.
