July was a little creepier this year and no that’s not because P1 is back but rather because the club was playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. This is certainly one of the darker entries in the Zelda series and has always been cast aside as being too different or too un-Zelda like. It’s gained a cult following over the years and this month the club has decided to see if it’s as much as a stinker as they thought or has their been a gem masked under all that darkness.
This month the Cartridge Bros are joined by three incredible guests: A legend in his own right and the creator of the Barrie Game Exchange, Nintendo Hodge! As well, two of the boys from the amazing gaming podcast Bonus Barrel, Rob and Leff!
Will the club members enjoy themselves more this time through? Did anyone actually like it back in the day? Does the game make some people feel like they’re members of the “Make a Wish” foundation? Will Hodge be selling his copy at the Barrie Game Exchange? Do the Bonus Barrell boys damage it with their recommendation system? Find out the answers to these questions and more this month on, The Cartridge Club!

What a month for the Cartridge Club! For April we played God Hand, a controversial third person beat ‘em up sort of game.

This game sucks. Don't even bother listening to us bitch about it's terrible level design, camera controls or mechanics. This was the worst decision the Cartridge Club has ever made. I personally blame P2. Even the amazing guests of Enzzy, Nintendo Doctor, Game Time with Kyle and Bill from STC couldn't save this stinker of a game. I am so sorry.

Sincerely,
P1

Never much of a fan of the first person genre, the Bros went into this month a little skeptical. However after experiencing this amazing offering from Valve their tunes have changed.
