    YEEEEEEEEEEESSSS! I’ve been so deprived. I understand the decision to do the episodes less frequently though.

    AUSTIN IS BACK!

    The list of the discussion is so detailed. At first I skipped to points about Layton VS. Wright and Splatoon. But I end up listening the whole thing anyway :/

    • Austin

      Thank you!

  • errantrazor

    is it just me, or is this episode taking FOREVER to download on iTunes? and then being interrupted every time?

    • Austin

      Not sure what to say. 🙁

      Let me know if you figure out what the problem is.

      • errantrazor

        Finally got it!

  • me

    The “solve a puzzle and then hit 3 times” boss fight was present in spyro, which was pre oot. Idk if thats where it came from but it was an industry thing before nintendo did it

    • Austin

      Do you remember what bosses in Spyro used that style? I can only think of that one guy that spins his staff around on those circular platforms.

      • me

        in spyro 2 (1998) the first two bosses, crush and gulp, were “binary” in that you waited for openings to hit them. The final boss required you to get certain power ups and use them effectivly, so it was more like you arent powerful enough to harm him unless you do X.
