Great episode. I don't know if it's a Chicago thing or not, but SNES is what I heard growing up and it's what I have always said.

Curious about what 8-4 thinks of Dead Cells.

Love the podcast (listener since the beginning) but man, you guys really need to speed up the introductions. Took over 20 minutes for Jake to be introduced

@jakelyne: eh the intros are where they BS and talk about personal stuff, not unlike the Bombcast, which is fun. I think they should just intro their guests upfront instead of last. The length and casualness of the intros is fine for me otherwise.

re jake kazdal's VR stuff not working on PC - my first thought is to try testing the USB ports he's using for his VR headsets?? they can die sometimes, esp front ports

@entireties: Yeah, that whole segment sounded like the recent Grandpa Vinny moments where he didn't try basic problem solving.
