Tied with the TCGS GOTY show as my favourite 2017 end-of-year special. I hope you take that as very high praise!
A very good creative spelling on this one :!:

Re: Sound of Play: 126

Just to be confusing, Craig’s time codes up there are from the podcast episode, so you need to add ten minutes on to mine to make them line up cause I’ve done if from the soundcloud file. Flabyo, you Tweeted me expressing interest in some of the tracks included in this medley. I'm making a predicti...

Re: Sound of Play: 126

Great work, everyone. I'm impressed with what you've been able to come up with so far. The video has been posted, so you can use that as an answer key of sorts (a full answer key is in the description, but it's more fun to use the video by itself). prsESz5TubY Thanks for noticing, Scrustle!

Thanks, everyone! Glad to hear you're all enjoying it. If you'd like to guess the games included, feel free to list the ones you know and see how much of it you can figure out before the video version is posted.

Re: Sound of Play: 125

I'd never listened to that Splatoon piece on its own before. There is a lot more going on in there than I had realized, primarily playing that game in handheld mode.

Re: Sound of Play: 120

Ah, thanks for that note. I looked in a Sonic series wiki while recording and it didn't say anything about Sonic CD, but it was probably just incorrect. It's been decades since I've played Sonic CD, so I don't remember.

Re: Sound of Play: 114

Nice shout about DKC vs. DKC2. I certainly have no lack of love for the original DKC -- it was, easily, one of the definitive games of my childhood while DKC2 was one that I only really came to (in full) later. So I absolutely understand the love and admiration for the original title, but, yeah, I s...

Ah sorry. We take all of the suggestions and put them into a big spreadsheet instead of going back through the original posts, so sometimes these suggestions are listed out of order or separated from one another.

Ryan misquoted me by saying underrated when I'd actually typed understated :)
Haha, yes, true. Although I owned up to the mistake and corrected it immediately. Your name is cleared of the misquote.

Re: Favourite Enemies/Monsters in Games (not Bosses)

My favorite fight in the first Dark Souls actually wasn't with a boss, but rather with the gargoyle-type creature that spawns only once on the elevated walkway between the main bonfire and the O&S building. It's a great fight, the space is just the perfect size for the encounter, and it's a wonderfu...

Re: Sound of Play: 80

We had a hard time choosing between that track and this one for the finale. zFuWmY65o-s I elected for the one that we featured on the show because of the brilliance of the composition. The children singing leads us to expect a much simpler composition that we end up receiving. The violins play an ab...

My Zelda X Souls Fanfic

If you'll indulge the most whimsical of whims, I thought it would be fun to share my fanfic (of sorts) for a Zelda X Souls mashup game. It's just something I think about as I lie in bed, waiting to go to sleep. It might be fun to share. It's not ever going to be made, but it's fun to think about, an...

Re: Our next Zelda podcast recording (12.2.17): The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I'm really disappointed that I can't record on this show (due to my job). This podcast was actually the one that I was looking forward to the most, and the reason why I was playing along with all of the Zelda games for the show up to this point. I have a huge case of mixed feelings on this one. I th...

Re: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture - Cane and Rinse 251

Yeah, I think that the physical interactions (opening gates and such), boundaries on where we can't go (over water, for instance), and the way that the character picks up speed when holding the run button intentionally invoke a sense of physicality that it's hard to not read as intentional when the ...

Re: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture - Cane and Rinse 251

I liked this issue a lot, but I would disagree with James' point that who or what we are (the player character) is not important to the story. I think it changes it tremendously. If we are just another "light spirit", then that means that we are potentially living and reliving our final moments as w...
