    Love the podcast. Great guests and fun discussions. Wish it would be confirmed weekly-weekly. :)

    You guys need to put the pressure on Capcom (double ;) ). Here is my dream scenario: get Monster Hunter Tri “HD”-ified and ported to PSN, Live and Steam (I’m thinking a fair number of MMO gamers would be interested in Tri). Sell it aggressively (maybe 20$) to get as many people into the franchise as possible. And then go for a full release of Monster Hunter on the 360, PS3 and PC built with MT Framework. Hmm, that would be sweet. That franchise is so close to making it big in the west.

    John, you’re seriously getting me hyped for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.
    I haven’t played a MonHun since the first one on PS2, but I went out and pre-ordered the special PSP for this game.

  3. Brad from Sony says:

    I, for one, think the new ending is awesome. I’m sure Jean agrees with me.

    Wanpaku Ouji looks beautiful (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0I3IG848-dk). Amazon.jp even seem to have it in stock.

  5. George says:

    Where are the links to those 70s animated films from Japan?

    That ending catchphrase needs some work. “Our next episode(…)” instead of “podcast” maybe?

    Also, can we get a track list for the music used during the breaks?

    Informative, unbiased and funny – best gaming podcast right now (and the only one I’ve subscribed to right now). Keep up the good work, guys! It seems you’re usually a bit too fast for Hiroko, though. I’d like to hear her take more often.

    Another great episode!

    The interview with Jake was particularly excellent as it sent me straight back to my childhood and through my teen years :)

    More please!
