Yup, I started monthly for the first month the premium memberships started but after that I've been yearly and I never regret it, hell I even pay for my little brother's yearly membership to. Giant Bomb is my favorite place on the internet.

Yeah I finally got into retro gaming and in the last month I picked up Super Metroid and an SNES. My Gaming sessions are such that picking it up and playing for a few minutes then putting it down is a priority. Good point, that would be easier on VC.

I have Super Metroid for the SNES (along with a CRT) and for Virtual Console (along with an HDTV) and I've never played the damn game. I'm going to get started in a few days but I'm not sure which version to play. On one side I like the authenticity of having the SNES controller in my hands and playing on the real hardware, but on the other, VC games look so crisp on my HDTV and while not perfect, the Pro controller is really comfortable, more so than the SNES controller.

Which would you go for?

Cool idea, I hope we see more of them.

You make some really valid points. I concur I think Jeff is great as a secondary guy, it's his whole attitude that works so well for that. I think Dan would be a great host. They made a great move putting Brad as the podcast host, he's really shined since he took over, and that's not to say I would mind Jeff continuing to host he does a good enough job but Dan would work out well on the live shows IMO.

This really makes no fucking sense. Even with Kojima leaving Konami (probably because they won't let him make anything other than a MGS game) why would they remove his name from the game, I mean he still helped make the game. Senselessly tasteless by Konami. I hope Kojma makes something kick ass and I hope Konami relearns how to be a video game company.

Yup, agreed, I want to know how Nintendo responds to the reception the Wii U got with the NX.
