I don't think they mentioned Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze being delayed during the Nintendo Direct wrapup section. I can't be the only one that cares about that game, can I? Especially when the Wii U is pretty desperate for games? ESPECIALLY during the holiday season?

I am so glad that there's no GTA talk. 8-4 comes through again.

fantastic work on the updates for the mighty no 9 kickstarter, i mean i was going to buy the game day one when its released in 2015 because hell, inafune making a spiritual successor to mega man = day one.,

but then i saw that you guys and ben judd were in charge of the updates and consulting on the game and then sincerely i was like fuck it im in now. so again, great work on the updates and on the mighty no 9 podcast.

also you guys should make ben judd a regular permanent part of the podcast. you guys got great chemistry going, you're able to flow well.

"Pretty much no gta talk". As someone who doesn't play the game. I hope it's not sarcasm.

I dunno if Tony Loiseleur is still working at 8-4, I am a few episodes behind :(

But VTJ 3 is tonight from Ota City and I am super stoke for it. Megumi Fujii's retirement fight!?!? GOD DAMN. I'm sure Tony will be there tonight.

Anyway big shout out to Tony and Megumi for always keeping it real

8-4 Play delivers yet again, I'm especially sick of GTA talk because I can't play it with my PS3 still being shipped from the UK to Japan. Want to go in as fresh as possible outside of the hype machine

I appreciate the Phantom of the Paradise reference.

Good podcast as always you guys.

By the way, the guitar player you were thinking of that played in Mr. Big is Paul Gilbert. I think he stayed in Japan for a bit, married a Japanese women that now plays the keyboard in his band and moved back to the States or something. Check out his solo stuff, he's awesome.

Yamauchi had a touch for that. I'd certainly rather have him blasely never game yet have a great batting average instead of all of those metrics-whores and focus group-diviners in boardrooms.

@justicejanitor: I think Mark was actually referring to the vocal from Mr Big (who released an album full of Japanese covers). I didn't know Paul Gilbert lived in Japan for a while too though. Japan is like the Ft. Lauderdale for 80s shredders. Somewhere out in Shinjuku Yngwie Malmsteen is wrecking a ferrari.

Which came from the whole Geff Keighley Doritos and Mountain Dew debacle.
