Does anyone have a link to the full video of this? I'd be interested in hearing what the good and bad are from where he went to school.

@white531 Oh I definitely agree he was a remarkable man and president. My only point is that what is good for the goose is good for the gander, as the saying goes. If Obama wants to pretend that he's not in the mix on these things and what-not, then I'd say it's time to beat him over the head for being detached from the rest of his administration, even if it is a farce.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Daily Show mocks Obama for always pleading ignorance when asked about scandals
I was born in '76, so I didn't know the politics of when Reagan was president when I was a kid. Having read some books on him by his opponents and even some of their writings during the centennial celebration on the web, this is what they beat Reagan over the head with. That he didn't have control over his administration. That everyone was run amok because he didn't grab them all and lead, or whatever.
It seems to me that if Obama is finding out all this stuff from the news (which I don't believe, but for the sake of argument...), then he is guilty of the same thing that they find as a fault with Reagan. It seems WAY worse in this case, though, as it is multiple scandals happening.
@D2FXRayG Awesome! I was trying to rack my brain about what game he was talking about. Now that I see it, it definitely looks like a game I would've sunk some quarters into.

I have to say that Bruce Lee is my favorite fighter guy. I can't remember his name and am too lazy to Google (that's bad, huh?), but it's the guy on one of the later Street Fighter 2 releases that looks like Bruce Lee. That's what we all called him at our local arcade... "I'm gonna be Ryu!" "Well I'm gonna be Bruce Lee!"
As for beat 'em ups the first that comes to mind is Skate from Streets of Rage 2. I LOVE hopping on the backs of enemies and punching their heads haha I am also partial to Gilius Thunderhead from the Golden Axe games though, so it is a toss up between them for me.
Ugh, there was other stuff I wanted to comment on, but I don't remember what the heck it was now. I listen while at work, and should probably jot down notes on what I want to say so I remember the next day. Maybe I'll re-DL and listen again.
Anywho, pity vote! Yes, I went there. At least you tried to defend it somewhat Hunter hahaha

"I listen to Mark Levin every night and he is not ‘destroying’ Marco Rubio at all."
That was the first thing I thought too, Scoop. It seems to me that everyone puts their own spin on it. You have Luntz saying Rubio is "getting destroyed" over this, and others telling Mark that he's being too easy on him haha If anyone has listened to Mark's show, they should have noticed the demeanor in which he speaks about the bill, how he speaks to/about Rubio; respectful as all get out.

I really wish I had this, because this is one of my favorite games on the NES. I would love to know if the password system was still on this version, or if there were still unlimited continues, or if some of the enemies that were added for our version are in there yet.
Three grand... yikes.

I was going to vote for Gangster Town from the get-go. I have always loved that game. And yes, the light phaser is way cooler than the zapper (what's up with that clang CLANG sound?)!
The arcade discussion was awesome and had a lot of what I have said for awhile now too. Just as you guys mentioned that consoles became better and started killing off arcades, and Patrick Scott Patterson the other day mentioned that TV is on the way out, I've been saying the same about movie theaters. I can't even enjoy our local theater because our house is better, and we're not even rolling in dough!
I definitely think Hunter was good enough on this episode to keep the position ; )

Cool idea! I'll probably have to keep to the general podcast since I don't think I have enough time to _watch_ an hour and a half, but it's cool that you offer this up as another avenue for everyone to check it out.
The technology that is available these days is great.

Love the snail! I like how they move so incredibly slow that it makes you feel like a buffoon if you die against one haha
You did forget Adventure Island 4 though, which I believe was a PAL only release. I bet you can guess who the first enemy was!

Definitely have to go with Tony Hawk this week.
It almost sounded like Bailey was daring Hunter to use Sonic in next week's Showdown :O
As for the listener question, I was thinking of Semia on Rastan for the SMS. But the alteration of the story wouldn't actually alter, but append to it. After Rastan leaves, I'd hook up with the princess.
Good show as always, and Norm did a good job too : )

That would be AWESOME. I love almost all the Mickey games that came out on Sega systems and the Game Gear, so I expect this would be pretty good. As long as they stick to the standard formula, that is.

I'm in the Livefyre camp. Disqus was so glitchy for me. Maybe their update solved that issue, but I've had nothing but love for Livefyre since first using it on another website called 1MoreCastle. Anyway, Livefyre gets my vote!

Hey, thanks for the shoutout! I did end up getting through all the Podcastles that I hadn't heard yet, just last night as a matter of fact haha When your job is the same every day, it's easy to get through a few podcasts a night. It was pretty cool, and I got to hear where some of the inside jokes came from. Good stuff : )
I don't even know what to pick out of these three. I haven't played any of them, but the Gekibo Boy game looks the most original, if even a bit slow-paced. I guess I will vote for that one.

I am continually amazed at the size and scope of the projects that regular people take on. This, the Duke Nukem mod mentioned earlier today, and I believe I heard you guys discuss Streets of Rage Remake on an early podcast. These have to be a pain in the butt to take on, but I imagine well worth it to the authors.
Two years... man, that's a long time haha
