    Great listen as always. Also great to have Aki as host for the sake of variety:P.

    Well to share my thoughts about some of the matters.

    The “boost formula” in sonic games:

    I mostly agreed with Aki. I think the boost move was never going to be a great formula of succes as it revolves mostly around superficial eye candy. It’s actually the bigges problem I have with the modern gameplay as they choose eyecandy over inovation and variety of gameplay. THe modern gameplay for instance (at least so fat i’ve seen) in sonic generations is nothing different from what we got 3 years ago. While with the classic sonic gameplay every level feels different and they add something interesting with each stage, in generations being mostly throwbacks but very well implemtented imo.

    I agree they gotta go back to the adventure formula for modern sonic (and maybe even classic sonic with 2d segments as well). Honestly I can imagine it be rather epic if executed right.

    Also great to hear about Binary Domain being the most anticpated game for AKI. I really can’t wait for the game myself ^^.

    PS: Finishing the list for me would be:

    4. Zelda skyward sword
    5. Sonic generations

    George sounds like crap, and for once it isn’t the mic’s fault 😛 Hope you feel better. Soar throats are the worst.

    Isn’t Doctor Who a kids show? I know people who watch Adventure Time, but damn. Some people treat DW like the survival scrolls.

    Also, is it me, or does the show go through a loop or two around the 1:30 mark?

  3. Aki-at says:

    No, Doctor Who is a family show, its main character, the Doctor, is very light hearted, but its not just for kids, children watch it too, but its certainly mature enough to be watched by adults.

    It’s also had a significant impact on a lot of major science fiction shows, for example, the Borg are based off of the Cybermen from Doctor Who and the Q are based off of the Time Lords.

    Matty, I maybe known as the chocolate man in some circles, but that is taking it too far!
