If the podcast runs it's course at 60min that's fine but don't hit it with a time constraint.
Great show anyway, I'll have to add Dead Space 2 to my list of games to play.

But we can understand sometimes you have more time in life than other moments that is understandable.
First 10 min should be off topic talk anyway that is what makes the show different and stand out.
Keep up the great work.

Uh Cheapy, is the mystery game Wizard of Wor?
EDIT: Yep, it's gotta be The Incredible Wizard (Wizard of Wor) for the Bally Astrocade, just saw the Youtube video of it.
I remember a neighbor kid having the Astrocade when I was a kid. The controller was a bit wonky but the games were really good... loved WOW.

I do enjoy listening to the show, but sometimes I find it gets a bit time consuming. An hour long is a great length, in my opinion and I definitely wouldn't mind more shorter shows in the future.
Excellent job guys, looking forward to the next one.

Thicker, anyone? Thinner? Or "just right"?

As for show length, longer is better, but don't push it. Do the same thing you've always done: talk about video games until you're finished. Forcing the conversation into a shorter or longer than natural length won't make anybody happy.
And I like this new analyst segment! Make sure you actually revisit your claims. And more Mr. Bean please.

...To me it sounded like a modified version of many MIDI sounds of the Original Donkey Kong. xD
btw, didn't the original PSP (Phat) come bundled, at first, with a 32MB Memory Stick
Pro Duo and not a 512MB Memory Stick Pro Duo?...I think it did, because I remember
it being the only Memory Stick Pro Duo media format I had when I had the original PSP.
I moved on to the slicker looking & Slimmer PSP-2000 (Silver) so I can't quite remember.

And add some more Tai at the end of some shows, too. He is funny.

Why is it that people are treating the PSP like in hindsight it was a failure? This show kinda touched on it being a failure because it didn't sell as well as the DS and I've seen other editorials and what not saying the similar things like there are no great games on PSP.
I agree that the MUST PLAY titles are few and far between on the PSP, but can someone name some must play titles that are the DS? Both systems have good games, but neither IMO have titles that are going to make you want to make the jump to the portable if you have no interest in the platform. The only way they can get people with these consoles is putting established titles on handhelds that people really like. For Nintendo it's Pokemon, it's going to move portable consoles for them. The PSP uses console established games to move the PSP. Valkyria Chronicles, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid and that's just what I can think of off the top of my head.
I would hardly say that the PSP was a failure though, perhaps from now now on when they release other SKUs they should make more drastic changes, as far as appearance goes, so that people can feel the need to rebuy the console like people did with the DS. When was the last time anyone saw someone playing on this ugly hunk of junk...
The only reason I would call the PSP a failure is because it became so easy to pirate. I bought one a few years ago because I loved the idea of being able to play final fantasy tactics on the go. The GOW titles were outstanding too. And Rock Band provided endless fun.

The prediction segment is kind of lame if we have to wait 3 years to find out if it was correct. Maybe predict which will be the best seller out of the weeks new releases.
