I’m about to head over to Capcom’s “gamer’s day” event to learn about their stuff for the coming year. Games or whatever. Fortunately everyone was nice enough to put me on the Keiji Inafune/Mega Man 20th Anniversary interview instead of, say, the interview with the Ultimate Ghosts ‘N Goblins guy. Lucky break. Although I guess it would have been interesting on a dark and painful level.
Capcom hasn’t confirmed that ZX Advent is coming to the U.S., but I’m hoping it’s shown today. Just so I can ask what’s happening in this picture. It’s very pretty but uhhhh what
Also of note: A Lost in Blue 2 review destined to annoy the easily-annoyed, and the latest Retronauts. Oddly the podcast is slightly broken so you may want to hold off on downloading it until I can get the corrected version uploaded.
Cut from this episode: tons of off-topic chatter (which may startle you, given how much I left intact), and Sharkey’s horrible unintentional neologism “wopanese.” I think he meant “wapanese” — i.e. a while boy who wants to be Japanese, i.e. anyone who reads MegaTokyo — but somehow that one letter changed it into a slur against 2/3 of the Axis Powers. Please do not alert the Reverend Al Sharpton to this fact.
