    ‘Bout time we got some pussy on this podcast.

    Sonic 4-2 over Colors Barry?! You are dead ta me!!

    Aww man! I was gonna use a track from Sylvania Castle on my podcast. Dangit.

      I agree with Barry

      Episode 2 is much better then Sonic Colors. Sonic Colors was made to appeal to Nintendo fans, it plays like a Mario game.

    • Barry the Nomad says:

      Let me clarify: Colors is a more complete, and better game overall. Better music, visuals, etc. HOWEVER Sonic 4 has the type of gameplay that I like from the franchise. 2/3 zone structure + boss per zone, collecting rings to enter special stages, completely 2D. Both are Sonic games, but Sonic 4 is more my kind of Sonic game than Colors is, despite Colors being a better game overall.

      Well….okay then. “Puts knife back in the drawer”

    I usually listen to the podcast before i go to sleep on my phone with earphones on. I can listen an hour but after that i feel that its becoming too time consuming. Well just saying that i cant listen to a podcast for 2 hours but thats just me heh. I however did listen to a great part of it and it was fun as always. Too bad i couldnt hear uranus as clear as i wanted.

    Oh and the multiplayer in binary domain is actually really good in general, it just lacks the communaty because of how few people own the game.

    Also a little correction to barry :$. Sylvania zone is supposed to resemble aquatic ruin more than marble garden. Also the boss thing at the beginning is supposed to be an easter egg to aquatic ruin. Its minor but just in case i guess
