Hey, this is was a good episode with good editing.

Loved that impromptu intermission with Moogle. Great choice in music.

probably my most favorite least favorite episode.

New idea: instead of family feud for an episode (since answers seem low?), do a game where you play video game music snippets and teams have t guess on them. You could have tiered hints (ex- #1: it’s on SNES; #2: its world has an industrial theme) in case it proves difficult.

Shovel Knight is a video game slut. He’s in every indie game these days. Look out for his upcoming appearance in Yooka-Laylee.

Sorry that one of my links didn’t work. I feel bad for leading you on a merry farce.

Good to see the return of HPo. Do you read it all in one take Cats? If so, that’s impressive.

I’d agree that Sonic Generations isn’t great. If you want to be upset by the fact that Sonic Team will never make a game that rewards you for building and maintaining speed in a sprawling 3D environment then you should try Green Hill Paradise – Act 2:

That was beautiful Cats. Communist Harry Potter’s absence was sorely missed. Please continue with that and other dramatic fanfic readings.

Also, goddamn Mr. Talley. That voice. Please accept my straight male boner in lieu of filthy lucre, which I know offends principled commies like yourself more than a legion of Donald Trump clones opening a thousand Chik-fil-a franchises in every urban lefty citadel. While I’m not entirely comfortable doing so, good art deserves to be appreciated. Thank you for sharing that with the world.
