I'll put a comment here when I've managed to listen to the entire thing. A real comment, and not just this placeholder. If I forget to, Chris, feel free to yell at me over Twitter.
Also, remember when you guys naively thought that Media Sandwich's episodes would be under 1 hour? That lasted, what, four episodes, and that only because you split one in two?
Okay, finally wrote that comment. I listened to half of it away from my computer, so I have a lot less to say about the first half, and I don't feel like listening to it again right away to fill in the gaps.
Glad to hear that you're getting Stephen Tobolowsky. Groundhog Day is probably my favorite movie ever and I've just recently heard him in a podcast (Slashfilm, in case you were wondering), so I'm really intrigued to hear that he might be in this podcast. (Also, if you count podcasts, that would give you guys a Bacon number of 2)
I'm really glad that Armchair Thinkers is making a comeback to the internet. I really liked those podcasts and regret that I deleted them to make room on my hard drive (then again, I did need that room).
Someone recently told me in a video comment that I should try playing Terranigma. I wonder if something gave it a resurgence in popularity recently.
I'm surprised that Chris didn't use talking about Uncharted and the controller rant to lead into my question about controllers. Seemed like a perfect opportunity.
So much about Dragonball. I only ever watched Z, and I haven't seen any of it since Toonami originally showed it.
I share Chris's trepidation about Wreck-It Ralph. I'm interested but not excited because all of the excitement seems to be just about the fact that it's being made at all.
I'm also really interested in seeing what happens with Days of Future Past. Hopefully they're going after the actual comic storyline, and it doesn't become something else. Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen possibly both playing Magneto in the same movie? That is a mindblowing possibility.
I'm seeing Spiderman midnight though I'm still unsure about how good it's going to be. I honestly don't mind origin stories as long as other stories happen eventually. It might be a bit too much having it so close to the other series ending...
I'm about the right age to have played Goldeneye, but I've never actually played the game. Something that sticks out as a bit odd about me, but I did get into the N64 a little late.
Fun fact: the original Little Shop of Horrors was shot in two days, produced by Roger Corman, who was infamous for shooting movies like that.
I think that you need to see the Rocky Horror midnight show at least once. I've been to it once and wouldn't go more than once a year (at Halloween), but it's an experience worth having. I just want to ask Kyle if he's been to it before.
The Pokedex kid reminds me of my nephew, who always wants games to be made easier so he can get to the end. It's interesting how you realize, at a certain point, that the cliche about journeys and destinations is true.
I prefer shoes over sandals all the time. I hate flip flops. The only sandals I'll wear are ones that have straps to keep them on. Also, I have never heard coupon pronounced that way.
(Yay, my question!)
I've said this to Chris before, but to me, 360>Gamecube>PS3, and everything else is kind of take it or leave it. The PS3 controller takes a bit of an adjustment, and after about 10 minutes of playing I've got it. I have no idea how the WiiU Pro controller will handle, though it might be better than the 360 controller for FPSes. And yeah, every single controller is an amalgamation of the previous controllers with something new added in somewhere if they manage to come up with some sort of innovation.
I will note that the PS3 controller is better than the two others I mentioned for 2D games, which I have played a lot of recently.
I like the N64 controller, it just isn't particularly good at anything in hindsight. It was a really interesting design, and when you look at how it came about, then you see why the three-pronged design was there. It was a failsafe just in case the analog stick controls failed, kind of like the Classic Controller was just in case the Wii motion controls failed (that was part of the reason they made it).
Talking about winning the internet and everything made me lose the game. That is why you two are jerks, and I'm not a jerk because you're the jerks here.
Manga are like comic books because they're a purely visual medium in which stories are using combinations of pictures and words. They're a particularly large subset of comic books, like superhero comics or European comics (like Tintin and such) are.
The fact that Chris twisted the criteria in the TMNT vs. BTAS debate bugged me at the time, but seeing as that was his strategy and not a faulty premise, I have no issue with it anymore.
I've realized why No Right Answer's title explains the entire premise of the show from the beginning. I didn't think it was that opaque.
I hear some of Chris's Kermit impression in the Canadian accent. Am I alone in that?
