I Say Again: Break Radio Silence

First off, we are still alive. Secondly, we here at Gamer Bait apologize for our absence the past two and a half weeks. Thirdly, wow. If you had told me two months ago that the month of April and beginning of May would be so busy that I would have neither time for gaming on my own equipment or writing for Gamer Bait, I wouldn't have believed you. But that 40-day period included a lot of working, literally 7 or 8 birthdays (four of which I went out of town for), and a lot of other things that we won't delve into. And after things calmed down, I got sick. Anyway, it's my fault for not letting everyone know in advance, and for that I apologize. It kind of snuck up on me. But while life did steal me away from Gamer Bait for a short while, at least it treated me well. This is why we're looking for more writers! Regardless of all that's gone before, I'm back. And despite my absence, I did in fact find time to record our Gamer Bait gaming segment on the Two Cents podcast, so be sure to check that out and keep up on some of the latest gaming news. Coming up later, I'll post the Rockstar energy drink review, to begin rolling out the rest of the energy drink shootout. For now though, here are the past few podcasts; the gaming segment is the segment after the introductins and show notes.
