So thrilled that this is up already! Also that Lego Island is in there, I used to play that game ALL THE TIME as a kid! Thanks to whoever hit the magical video upload machine with a wrench!

The LEGO Island segment was the greatest thing from this series so far. Plus, it made me remember all the time I spent playing LEGO Island.

I'm so glad that Lego Island was there for me as a child, so I could grow up to be who I am today. Seeing it again explained so much

Is there a good book on the founding and complete implosion of Ion Storm? Most articles are from the time and don't give a good current perspective on it.

Lego Island is about ten times trippier than I remember it being. Jeez.

Fantastic show. A great representation of the oddest sorts of games out there.

Lego Island was a thing of pure brilliance. There's something about kids' entertainment that can cause it to transcend into pure abstract art when taken out of context.

Also, Just Cause 2. 10/10. Best Friday ever.

Good lord, Ryan was just non-stop on the Lego Island segment. I haven't laughed this much in quite some time.

Plus the nostalgia trip was quite enjoyable, even though I'm more of a Lego Racers kind of guy.

I really need to know the song that was Ryan's town theme for Animal Crossing. That is driving me nuts. I recognize that from somewhere.

Honestly Lego Island isn't THAT much crazier than the Traveler's Tales Lego games. I remember playing the shit outta that game, i let the Brickster loose and threw him back in jail. That's one of my most cherished video game memories of all time.

"King Of New York" from 1990 featured Wesely Snipes and Christopher Walken blowing David Caruso's head off with a sawed off shotgun. Also, Ryan's not very good with movie dates especially when compared with me.

My place just moved to a new office just off 2nd... I walk past the CBSi building twice a day. Some day I am going to see one of the GB dudes and... not say anything. I've walked past patrick twice in the mission (I live there) and said nothing.

I moved to SF in november so its still weird that this is where the internet lives.
