Brandon, Tom, and Josh take a long moment to ponder, among other things, the future of Mega Man Legends 3, the corporate and creative practices of Capcom and Square-Enix, Batgirls with bazookas, the true value of the Flinstones, and the shriveled little mind of Too Human’s Denis Dyack. There’s plenty of jibber-jabber to get you through the week in this episode that pierces the three hour mark with little justification. Plus, listener emails!
0:01:10 – PSN is back up, everyone. Finally, the world can rest. Also, Sony manages to surprise us in a good way with the announcement of their PSP Remaster series!
0:19:35 – Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version has been pushed back and will miss the 6/6 launch of the 3DS eShop. Just what is Capcom’s deal? And Square-Enix, while we’re at it!
1:00:12 – As Josh furrows his brow, Brandon and Tom defend the concept of Gotham City Imposters.
1:11:21 – Intermission!
1:13:00 – “Seth Macfarlan’s Flinstones.” Try that title on for size, that’s going to be a real thing. Brandon explains why you shouldn’t freak out.
1:25:42 – Josh wants to mention the unfortunate Joystiq/Conduit 2 situation. Nice one, High Voltage.
1:29:00 – Listener Emails! First, Billy tells us how much fun he had with Tom at the Warrior Dash and then encourages us to ruin Kirby for everyone.
1:35:38 – Alex asks if there’s any possibility of JKP forums. HMMM…
1:39:03 – Ryan writes in to ask if we think Nintendo’s “Project Cafe” will utterly dominate the headlines coming out of this year’s E3, leading (somehow) to a discussion about the future of the console wars.
2:11:13 – Danny asks us if Denis Dyack is seriously as nuts as he seems. (Spoiler: yes.)
2:28:33 – We return to Nik’s email from last week involving our best/worst jobs.
2:40:18 – Intermission 2!
2:40:35 – Josh begins a sordid tale of post-college vaccum salesmanship.
3:00:33 – As punishment for breaking the three hour mark, the Podcast Gods transform Brandon into a frog.
