Zack: It would be admittedly sweet to jump into one of those Vampire games where the dudes are all playing the politics of vampire society super seriously and wearing capes to the game and lighting candles and stuff and straight up rock their world with some Zangief.
Steve: E. Honda would slap the crap out of some goths, dude.
