Haven't listened to a second of it, and I already love it, based on the title alone.

Same for me. It is not even showing up in the episode directory there. Oh well, OP is fine for listening too, except if I forget about it and close the tab!

(Downloaded from the link in the OP no problem an hour ago or so, already listened to most of it)

Hmmm... I'm on the fence now (thanks to you Cheapy) about my still-sealed copy of Mass Effect. I really liked KOTOR (including the combat) and ME sounds like it goes away from the RPG elements I liked from that and more into an action-shooter type game (which is much less interesting to me).

On a somewhat related note, I couldn't help but notice that you put down the "best reviewed game ever" aspect of Mario Galaxy by saying it was good for a platformer like that was some sort of inferior genre (implying that no way could a platformer be the best game ever). Now, fine if you don't like platformers, but there are some of us out there bored to tears by shooters and prefer platformers. That's why, to me, I can't see how Bioshock or Mass Effect could possibly be Game of the Year. Shooters lose 3-5 points automatically in my internal scoring system ;). (FWIW, I certainly wouldn't say Mario Galaxy is the best game ever - personally I don't have one).

As for the whole "Super Frank Galaxy" deal, I think you are missing the mark there. Yes, it scores higher because it is Mario, but the Mario essence is a big part of the game. It is more than the character models, it is the atmosphere and feel of the game as well. Anyway, I'm making less and less sense the more I type. My newborn is now 5 days old ;).
