  1. Had to pause the podcast real quick to make a brief comment: Brent, the mystery tune you're humming at the 1:25:30 mark is definitely the Mii Channel!

  2. Great episode!!

    The music was very solid and the talking was good too!

    I was just about to go to bed when the episode came out, and I ended up staying awake for 2 extra hours.

    1. Brent: "Psst. Hey kids, would you like some.........PASTRIES? You two look like you like to imbibe in the pastridge, want something fruity and creamy in your mouth? I'm not a narc, HONEST. Hey there, Studio Trevor, would you like a bulbous, fruity pastry to stick in your mouth? You know you'd like it."

  4. Ohmygosh there were sooo many bonk tracks in this episode. It's also possibly the longest episode in memory. I was sure that the Kyuukai Douchuuki track would be my favorite, because it's so awesome and not typically Mega Drive sounding, but man, there were a string of hot hot hits after it.....Maybe Super Bonk was the Bonkest of all.

    Oh my gosh.

    1. As an aside, Nice April Fool's Day trick releasing this episode the same time as the latest VGMpire. "Oh that Nathan", I can imagine you said, "How's the poor fool going to decide what to listen to on his way to work?"

      I did the only thing a responsible game music nerd COULD do. I listened to them both at the same time.

  6. I love this podcast so much, sometimes I can't believe it's really happening. I think I am addicted to that Riverse Kids track. It's kinda good.

  7. That Accele Brid track is jam. I am also way into Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge's "Menu 2" -- both the original recording AND the LMH cover version.

    I loved the super angst surrounding Dragon's Earth, but I have to admit my heart broke a little bit on Brent's "...are you doing this on purpose??" Poor guy. Ron's too good at those mind games.

    Happy birthday, Studio!

  8. Hey guys,

    Just for the record, I had no idea what kind of game Riverse Kids was...yikes. But the track's pretty good...right?

  9. Awesome episode as always and Happy Birthday!

    I was wondering if next episode the monster that lives in Rob's pocket could make an appearance? He's been MIA way too long, and I think you guys definitely have enough time to book him for the next show. I understand he's extremely busy, but this is important. I need to know what he's been up to.

  12. Have had a busy few months and it was a pleasure to have hours of you guys to catch up on.

    I liked how in this episode you guys kept talking about next week's episode instead of next month. I'm hoping that is some freudian slip and you guys will realize you should be doing this biweekly at least!
