beatmania+ (August 31st, 2006)

NOTICE: These almost as old as dirt OpenAlpha episodes have the original show notes below meaning plenty — if not all — of the links have been broken thanks to the decay of time and souls. Be warned!

Jenn Cutter created OpenAlpha to share her love of gaming, tech, accessories, and all things geeky with the world because her friends were, frankly, sick to death of hearing her going on and on about it. You can follow her @JennCutter, twitch.tv/JennCutter, or be old-fashioned and e-mail jenn @ openalpha.tv, if you want to totally make her day.
