    Sorry for bothering ya, but is there a Japanese equivalent of Mobygames that offers a full credit list? I tried Game Minzoku, GameStaff@wiki and a few others, but they seem to only be listing either the big names in the staff or exclusively pulling up complete credits for big budget games.

    Other than an off color topic about someone thinking they were poisoned by cockroach repellent fumes, there wasn’t much interesting going on in this podcast. But, hey, I still listened and I do look forward to the next one.

    The soundtrack is amazing — as was John’s impassioned pitch, which inspired me to buy it before the podcast was done.

    Love the work you do, happy to support it in whatever way I can. For $5.84. Because I as enthusiastic as I am poor.

    Can you please, please, please, please, please, please find some way to convince Capcom to bring Monster Hunter 4 to the West? I understand it’s probably outside your purview, but as someone who was introduced to Tri and fell in love with the franchise, I feel abandoned and am sad. If you do, I promise to give you 84 of something.

    What’s the music track (at 1:40:00) that bridges the regular show and the Sworcery segment? It’s an orchestral Sworcery rearrangement, but I can’t seem to find it on the The Scythian Steppes album.

    Also, how do I 8-4 bump if I’m paying in a currency other than USD? Do you guys see the amount in the original currency paid, or only the converted USD amount?

    I smoked hash.
    While i was listening to your podcast i fell asleep
    It’s a great thing, cuz i have trouble sleeping
    thank you

    I relistened to the show Saturday morning

    The soundtrack was worth the $8.40 I spent and then some. And the fact that you guys spent half the show promoting it gives me faith that my favorite podcasters do indeed have good taste. My listenership shall continue with a clear conscience.
