    Doing reviews of various old games is one thing (anyone with a mike can do them), but he actually managed to get interviews with well known developers too. Thumbs up to Matt.

    He's an amiable and totally reasonable guy-- that's why he gets the interviews-- unlike us angry cunts.

    He shouldn't try to do humor though. The characters and text balloons that pop up really only detract from the rest of the review.

    Also, something that really bugs me is that you can't hear what he's saying because of the music and sound effects sometimes.

    Other than that, :salute:.

    Strange, the RSS points to the 48k version of the podcast. I guess I'll just let MediaMonkey notify me when he updates and then go manually download the high quality one.

    Proof that words in audio or written format don't matter. Only action matters, which would require a revolution from the sheep(and that won't happen either).

    After failing to convince anyone that written words don't matter by using the written word, DaveO finally gave up and realized his dream.

    Was there any butthurt over Bard's Tale 2 in the interview ? Maybe he should also do an interview with Michael Cranford.



    You must be talking about this, eh ? : "In April 2001, she began writing novels based on Sailor Moon, Ranma 1/2, The Terminator, Ace Ventura and Independence Day."

    He/she was what, 38 at that time? Wha-?
    Edit: "On March 17, 2008, she launched a webcomic called Sailor Ranko[3] based on her novels set in the Sailor Ranko universe created by Duncan Zillman and Kevin D. Hammel, based on characters from Sailor Moon and Ranma 1/2."

    Ranma 1/2 is about a guy who can trannify himself by command IIRC.

    It's probably bad for your career as a game dev to come out and say MMOs are the cancer.

    Maybe they simply like them. After all they find programming interesting enough to write games. Who knows what such an alien mind finds entertaining...

    That's what the neanderthal genes did to her.
