What the HELL Is Going On Around Here?!?!

No shit.

I have been wondering the same thing. Basically, it goes down like this...

We have been running tests on our new, more accessible audio set up (Yeah, right, eh?) and think we have finally hit our sweet spot. The only problem is work at the studio is piling up right now for the three of us and we have been working our asses off. That's not even mentioning the fact that I am moving Saturday, Stephan is a bad case of "Leg Tentacles" (don't ask), and Patrick got married to a mastodon. She's a very lovely girl.

So, we almost recorded an episode yesterday. Then Patrick got slammed with work. Or it was Zangief. Work... Zangief... who's keeping track of this shit?

That was my lame-ass transition into talking about Street Fighter IV. This game could not have come at a better time for me. I have been so in the dumps about gaming that I was afraid I would forever live without purchasing a new game. Granted, SFIV is not a clean slate. It incorporates a lot of ideas from the past. But, it's fucking perfect. For me. Right now.

Mokuu and I played a ton last week and it was the most fun I have had gaming in a while. Today at work Will Wurth brought in his PS3 and we all played for about an hour. Again, the most fun I have had in a while.

Thank you Capcom. In the last year you have released Megaman 9, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Street Figther II HD Remix, and Street Fighter IV. I retract anything negative I have said about throwback titles. It seems they are the only thing I play anymore. (OK, so a lot of throwbacks are garbage. We are just lucky this round)

So, We are working on getting the next episode out! I swear it. Tomorrow I will be at the San Francisco Wondercon doing free sketches if you can track me down.

And if anyone wants to get their ass kicked in SFIV, my PSN name is "Basho" and I am always looking for a good match! (No whining about "You should have gotten it on 360!" It's the same damn game but PS3 has a far superior controller. If you have both systems, that's the one to get it for)

Later goons!



  1. Yo Mike,

    I got some new move to show you! Hope ur ready for some street fighting madness, online, at home, ok it aint much "Street" fighting but there WILL BE FIGHTING.

    Have you tried KIllzone 2 yet?

  2. Hey guys,

    Catching up on the old shows and I had a little correction for Stephen(don't you love it when I do that?) on Episode #49: Jonathan Blow is the guy behind "Braid", not "Flow" and "Flower"; those are done by ThatGameCompany. so he's innocent of the nose-in-the-air syndrome unless you also find "Braid" pretentious.
