We're all playing Brawl, so that's what we talk about for half the show. Then we get into some hot news action!

Let's gather 'round and bitch some more about Nintendo's online problems.


The crew is back, and now that all four of us have Super Smash Bros. Brawl, we can hardly talk about anything else. Bully and Guitar Hero try to sneak into New Business but are crowded out by the Jigglypuff Final Smash-like mass of Brawl discussion. This naturally includes some commentary on the online infrastructure, with the usual moaning over inconvenience and even some praise for how well online play sometimes works over huge distances.

In the second segment, we catch up on some recent news stories with discussions of Rock Band for Wii, Guitar Hero for DS, and Namco's Sky Crawlers. You know we can't stick to an agenda, though -- listen for an extended and unexpected tribute to the Panasonic Q.

Nice episode guys, enjoyed the Brawl discussion and the in depth Rock Band stuff (and the consistent pointing out of Nintendo's craptastic online service).

yay podcast!

I STILL don't have any names registered.  Yes, really.

Two weeks later.

Down A is proximity mines
Down B is remote mines

The sonic song their talking about is "Live & Learn" and yes it is in the game.

ROB's FS sucks.

Snakes down smash is a proximity mine, his down special is a remote mine. You can lay as many proxy's as you want and they'll blow if someone steps on them. you can only lay one remote mine and it will only blow if you press down b again. Both will blow up on their own after a while as well.

DAaaMan beat me to it but i'm still putting this up because it's a little more detailed.

90% of mine are unresolved as well. I really don't understand how the service works, all I know is that it sucks.

You guys remember the Mortar & Pestle form from Wario Ware smooth moves?  I love that,  do you think they could do that for an basic flight game? I would think that would be awesome.

Thank you for making me sad that my Q doesn't read disks anymore.

:(

I still have it though.  It can be an art piece.

Do you know what part might cause that? I'm sure you can switch parts like that out with the gamecube.... maybe :P

Did Lindy get a new mike? He sounds much clearer this episode.

I got a new mic and nobody notices.  :-\

Lindy's audio was much nicer to edit this week.  In fact, this was the easiest overall edit to date.  It just took me a while to get the files ready to edit, hence the delay.


And by noting it was an easy edit I have now jinxed myself to the return of "The 10 Hour Project" this week.

Yeah Brawl's online setup is a bit wonky. I was adding some people I was talking to in IRC, and while I was able to see his icon, he couldn't see mine until he disconnected, then re-connected. 

I still have a few people that have the awaiting regristration sign. Either A) I'm not on when they are on B) They didn't add me, even though they said they added everyone on that page. If so, shame on you!

Yes indeed, as well as the my fave, "Sonic Boom" for from Sonic CD. Over the top hair metal FTW!

I use the same headset every week.  I guess this has to do with how close to my mouth I put the microphone.  Now I wish I would have actually paid attention to what I was doing last week instead of zoning out like I usually do.
