It's raining outside! That means we need to stay inside all day and play video games! Darn! Rob and Pernell share their favorite rainy-day themed music! Rain used in games as back-drops to set the mood and create a unique atmosphere, so the music is composed accordingly. Pernell shares his thoughts on his panels at Anime Central, and they both discuss the effects of time travel.

Episode 9-6 Password and Save Select
Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game's manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!
