Is December really the best time to be going to the beach in Northern California? Not really, but try telling that to Santa Cruz native Cesar Quintero . . . So, yeah, the team was convinced to follow him down to his old haunts in the interests of seeing sights better left until the warmer seasons, but also to visit Edmund McMillen, creator of many awesome games, but the most recent of which is sure to delight many: Super Meat Boy. Rounding out the coverage this week: The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks and we enjoy some 8-bit Vintners wine by the wintertime fire while discussing PixelJunk Shooter.
Santa Cruz is a summer town, but that didn't stop us from swinging by one of the few real arcades left in our area.
