At the conclusion of last season it was announced that the next generation of consoles was finally cleared for challenges. That announcement has paved the way for today's challenge of I.Q.: Intelligent Qube for the Playstation. With I.Q. being a puzzle game that Arino apparently has some history with this should be easy, the operative word being should.
The first TamaGe of the season is a brisk affair that takes place at a small store in Chiba. Firstly Arino checks out what is probably the single most dilapidated line up of arcade machines ever featured on the show before heading inside to check out the selection of candy on offer.
Every new season ushers in a new segment and this season we're being treated to DJ Monster! In this segment two J-Pop songs are feed into Monster Rancher's monster generator and whatever is spit out goes head to head. First off Arino will have to decide whether he's going to back Love Phantom or Moonshine Dance in this monster showdown.
