Pikachu why you so cute!


Yay! For a new episode. I really need to catch up if they already have a third Danganronpa in Japan. =P

Having the tape wheel on Pikachu's face looks weird...

Oh man 8-4 Play! I love this podcast. Or I should say I loved it. It's been awhile since I listened to it. When I got my new phone I just lost all my subscriptions feeds and forgot about it. Can't wait to listen to about 4-5 unheard episodes! I really love this podcast. It's like Japan+Gaming the podcast! As always Mark and the rest of you, thank you for bringing us the podcast every other week!

this shares the throne with the bombcast as the best podcast around.

FF11 had offers to take Summoners through all the Summoner bosses to get the unique gear and all the summons. It usually involved real money.

Yeah I tried Terra Battle and uh, in spite of it's promising pedigree... um.... I didn't like it. :/

"I'm an experienced Cheese Warlock."

Haven't listened in awhile, always love hearing overlapping stories with the Bombcast. It's interesting hearing different perspectives like the unanimous agreement here that Driveclub's online shitting the bed is inexcusable versus Jeff giving it a bit more leeway due to the difficulty of preparing for heavy online traffic.

Also fun hearing Mark describe some of the community exploits in Destiny's raid, a stark contrast to Brad's choice to go into it blind. I guess it depends on what you value more, the discovery or the best gear acquired in the least amount of time spent. My impression is that the vast majority of players would opt to skip the former for the latter, and who can blame them? Something I've been pondering since having my first raid experiences in FFXIV and Destiny.

As someone who doesn't have a Japanese 3DS, I can't fucking wait for MH4G. I've spent my fair share of 300 hours on 3G but even with the fun of co-op it's hard for me to keep going once I finish getting most of the armor and top of the line talismans. I'm hoping 4G allows me to dig deeper with its new mechanics and "Greatest Hits" assortment of content. I'm trying so hard not to watch all the JP speed clears I can!

These are super entertaining and, currently, making me seriously consider getting an New 3DS when it launches in the US.

Oil heaters are pretty good in smaller rooms, and if they've been going for a while. Not immediate.

Like this time of year in northern Europe, before central heating kicks in.

But JJ is kinda right, they almost seem like blowing against the wind in how little they heat they appear to exude.

Got Vib-Ribbon on my Vita! Can't wait to get a PS3 so I can try out some audio disks with it.

If so, this internet website may be relevant to your interests.

I need those character designs to be used in something other than just a bizarre ad trying to get attention for a 3DS redesign. Sometime around the late 90s, early 2000s, Nintendo really strictly codified exactly how the Mario universe should look in promotional materials and artwork, and it's kinda stifling in how consistent everyone's appearance is. Gone are the days of the NES and SNES when every game could have a slightly different interpretation of how Mario and Peach look.

Look at how fucking baller Luigi looks!

I agree about dressing up the core Mario characters. I'm partial to hipser Bowser and (in particular) mod Peach, at least in terms of how much the promotional costumes alter their characters.
