Los Ingobernables de Tokusatsu Ep 12 – Bugster Night

Welcome to a brand new episode of “Los Ingobernables de Tokusatsu!” Today’s episode entitled “Bugster Night”, is named off an Ex-Aid Event held in Japan. In addition, the episodes are recorded normally at night, as well as our discussion this week is about video games. The reason we chose video games was because of our friend’s the Geek Fighters who are currently discussing the upcoming E3. However, we then decided to focus solely on tokusatsu games, like which we played or what we would like to see for a toku based game.
