      Mostly just so more people could find us via iTunes. It was hard for people to want click on “The Rotoscopers” (especially with our horrible album art haha). Technically, the show is called “The Animation Addicts Podcast with the Rotoscopers” (yes, it’s a mouthful ha). We still use “The Rotoscopers” for everything else though.

    Don’t knock Halo 4’s Forward Unto Dawn. It was amazing. Very well done. You need to watch them if you have ever played Halo.
