  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the excellent title theme from the game. You can find the full version here, since it builds up to a heck of a sound.
  • 30:30 – Nobody has any problems with Diablo! Or not laughing at jokes.
  • 37:00 – Emails! Four emails sent to two sweet baby boys, while someone else’s box remains empty.
  • 54:00 – In Ask the Sweet Boys this week, important questions about self-worth and body image.
  • 1:00:30 – Snifferoo. Somehow, we’re playing our second game starring Michael Jordan! If you’re keeping track at home, that’s Jordan 2, Sonic 0.
  • 1:02:50 – A little Stinger for all of the fans of the SBBs, MST3K style.


Diablo is pretty affordable nowadays, as it’s usually bundled with the second installment and their expansion packs in $15 to $30 physical media packages. However, it can be a bit tough to find, since Blizzard doesn’t support it. Diablo 2 is $9.99 for a digital download from the Blizzard website, with the expansion pack another $9.99.

– The Diablo expansion, Hellfire, is actually pretty pricy to obtain legally. A new copy on Amazon is going for $103, and used copies are $46.
