Here on Power Button we enjoy a good bloodletting once in a while, so on this week's episode we kick things off my discussing the recent downloadable title from Electronic Arts for the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and PC, Shank. Is it a good value for $15? Is it too short? Too long? Juuuuuuust right? Brad Hilderbrand, Joey Davidson, and I will tell you all about it and explain what worked and did not work for us. Then we tackle the recently announced price increase for Microsoft Xbox Live and the expensive new Xbox 360 controller, then go around and around on the rising cost of gaming across the board. One of us is OK with the price hike and I bet that it's not who you would expect.

a special fact-finding mission vacation, so join Brad and I as we discover whether or not I can edit one of these episodes myself.
