    That’s true I would buy all copies of a All Stars game as long as Sakura Shinguji will get her chance to shine along with some Saturn franchises.

    Death to Smoochy ftw.

    Hahahaha for the record, I was sort of right about Sega making a mistake with the Alien license, since they wound up cancelling a ton of their planned games, and released that “meh” Alien vs Predator game. I will admit though that Colonial Marines is showing promise.

    I love you too, Sharky! :]

    If I sounded a little stuffed up, it was because I’m getting over a cold.

    Fun show! Even though I was in it, I like listening once it’s all recorded and up. The major trends in this podcast were comic books and Eerie, Indiana.

    I say herb, the hell is Aki talking about?
    Oh, and welcome back, Swingers! Only took half the time than usual.

  6. Sharky says:

    I always find I always get on best with people I start of arguing with…

    <3 nSega

    You didn’t get it on iTunes, did you?

  10. Emmett The Crab says:

    Okay. I don’t remember seeing that there before, but maybe I didn’t read so carefully. Anyway, like I said before, I know a really easy way to get your podcast into iTunes.
