Hey guys, Spider here again with your regular helping of protein and vegetables.Today we have an interview with Tekken Director, Harada, Belial's community balance patch poll, and an interview with Partisan as well as his Target Practice Q&A in which he'll answer your game specific questions.There's also an outstanding fan-made Alpha Patroklos video and in celebration of the Memorial holiday we have Lady Liberty and Queen Elizabeth joining us in Calibur.
