Brilliant intro. Yoda needs to become a wrestling hypeman.

You can call a fag a faggot in England? I've never heard that before; is that the actual etymology? They fun sweets too. Shame they not only changed the name, but also the cigarette look. And I haven't seen the chocolate ones in years.

"Mmmhmm!" LOL

Something Island? Escape from Douchebag Island!

"This is why you're not in the marketing room."

Adam Orth.

$100-$150 for emulation on TV isn't that bad I think. If I could use GOG on it, I would seriously consider getting one. Yes I can connect my PC to my television, but it would be a major pain in the arse due to not having an HDTV. Obviously most people have HDTVs now, but the point is that this obviously has appeal to a very small market. I don't think it's aiming higher than that.

If you actually look back at the amount of time GT5 took to come out, it's not really all that extreme, especially when you take into account the release of prologue. The issue is that they were saying it was ready to be released so soon after just announcing it, which always came across as BS. Anyway, it was several years between GT3 and 4, rather than the 2 years of 1-2, but there was GT concept in between 3 and 4. So if you consider GT HD the first release of the gen, then prologue, then GT5 it doesn't actually seem all that far from the release schedule of previous GT games. And remember that Prologue sold ridiculously well, so they had good reason to wait so long in releasing GT5 beyond just the long development time.

Way to ignore my giant post guys. Sad (I could also have just zoned out.)

It's not even a hard mode it's "how the game should be played".

Asura's Wrath?

So good to be listening to this again. I really hope this becomes regular again. Great stuff guys.

Yeah Asura's Wrath.  Good looking game, and had some good moments but to me it felt more like watching a movie than actually playing a game. Aspro dug it if I'm not mistaken. I may have given up on it too soon.

Anyway the real ending was in a $7 DLC chapter that you could buy. Really one of the shittiest moves any company has done with DLC thus far - http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Want-Real-Ending-Asura-Wrath-Cough-Up-6-99-40917.html

And as I listen to this this morning I realize I'm an idiot. My impressions of Persona 4 aren't much more than, "it's long" and nothing else. For a game that I'd give a 9 or higher, that probably wasn't the best way to articulate my feelings.

Fittingly it took you awhile to say it was long as well. Nyaa

For whatever reason, I love hearing impressions about wrestling games (even though I don't play them).

It's for the same reason that you enjoy watching gay porn, even though you don't have sex with other men.
