Hey Ship, I have a question, and since Ignition seems to like you, you seem to be the right person to ask. Did you ever play Tornado on the DS? if so, comments?

I see it now: I'll have an order of Optimash potatoes, Star-ice cream, Hot Rod Chocolate, Frenzy Fries, and Ironhide ribs.

I did play Tornado. I enjoyed it until it became impossibly hard. I'm sure you know it's kind of like Katamari, but there are levels where the space cats you are looking for are a couple of pixels big. And they only appear after you've collected 7-8 minutes worth of stuff. And their location is randomly generated each time you start the level. And you can't cover the entire level in the given amount of time. Thus leading to the possibility that you could conceivably never be looking in the right location at the right time. Or if you get lucky, you find them the first time.

It's a shame really, because the game mechanic was solid. The level design and progression was not.

Hey Ship and Mrs Ship - I really enjoy your show! Haven't listened to any podcasts till about 3 weeks ago...you guys do a great job. It's funny when Mrs Ship bashes Ship because of his obsession with games. Sounds like my GF...

Anyhow Ship - you seem to know more about videogames than most people, and I believe you have a pretty large collection of new and old stuff. Have you ever thought about adding in a small section in your show to talk about maybe ONE old game or something to recommend to the listeners? As a collector, you know it's not always about playing NEW release games - a game can be "new" to us, and still be an old title.

For example, sitting here right now in front of my collection of 600 games or so, I would recommend Metal Arms - Glitch in the System for XBOX/GC/PS2 or maybe Blackthorne for SNES/32X. Something gamers can pick up that they may not have played...

Thoughts? ... I liked hearing about the X'eye you picked up from a user here (from an old Cag foreplay).

Not at all a fan of the contest, I have NO idea what the Transformers names are. ;)

Loved having another show, even with so few releases. Looking forward to next week and if you guys have anything to say about Wii Sports Resort (considering Wii Sports bowling is the most-played game on my Wii, followed by Boom Blox..).

I have to wonder how many people play the Wii as their primary console. For me, my main system is probably my DS (because I've been traveling a lot, not near my TV or my 360), though I have all 3 main consoles and the PSP and DS.

I finally had the time to listen to this week's show. Wait...there was a show last week, too? I must be dreaming. Hopefully, you will have the time to keep putting out more shows. If not...well, the world won't end...but it'll probably get here quicker.

Am I the only one that thinks Wii Sports Resort should've been mentioned in this week's show and not an upcoming (?) one? But I guess those Nintendo releases are a bit crazy. Speaking of crazy releases, I can't find that $50 Watchmen edition anywhere. Not that I want to buy it, but I find it odd that it's not out there in more abundance.

If you're going to complain about Monkey Island's text, Driftweed, make sure you mention all the other games with small text that came out before it.

Vet question for Mrs. Ship that I'd love to hear addressed on the next Foreplay:

Every time I take my dog (see below) to the Vet, they want to do something to her in the "back room". It's not an Exam room, it's some secret sanctum that pet owners aren't allowed to enter.

Most recently, my dog had some post-spaying stitches to remove. They wanted to take her to the "back". I said fine if I can come along. Nope. So we get an exam room, the vet tech comes to remove the stitches. She tells me I need to get my dog on her back some how to remove the stitches. No problem, I put her on her back on my lap (been doing that since she was a pup). While this is happening, I'm thinking "how were they going to accomplish this in the 'back'?"

I remember this growing up with my dog and cats then as well (different vet). It freaks me out because I don't know what they're doing that they wouldn't want me to witness...

In short, what is the "back" and why are vets in love with it?

Love the Foreplay!
