Response to Episode 30 – Best Ending:

Something you guys forgot to mention is the ending to one of the best Metroid games ever: \"Super Metroid\". This goes back to Wolf's comment on the actions you take during the game that affects the ending. Given that there's no choice behind this ending, but how can you forget a sacrifice for the greater good!

Actually, I did have that as one of my best endings, but I decided to leave it out for the sake of time. It's definitely one of the most memorable ending given how it tells an incredible little tale of sacrifice without a single word having been said. You gotta love the potential power of storytelling in video games.

Response to Episode 31 – Best Final Bosses and Price Points:

Going back to my previous post, Super Metroid's final boss sequence is definitely memorable.

Price points: At this point in my gaming career, I learned to appreciate reviews find fine people like yourselves, because I don't want to deal with my problem with Brutal Legends. (Keep up the good work, by the way!)

In the end though, as Karli mentioned, Apple will change how retail video games will be priced. How can you go wrong with sub $10 or even free games! This Penny Arcade comic might sums things up: ** you don't have permission to see this link **

I'd like to think that quantity never trumps quality, but damn, that is one tough arguement to counter.

Adding to my response to Episode 31, yes, Leland Yee needs a b!+ch slap! I'm glad Satoru Iwata is doing a good service for his company; if only other greedy companies would do the same. And finally there are markets for selling children; if you watch \"Man from Nowhere\", a South Korean film about drug and human trafficking and revenge, you know what I mean. (Go to Netflix and watch it!)

OK, I'm gonna be brutally honest. You know what's the most used word across all podcasts? The word \"apparently\". Please use a thesaurus. That's really my only gripe.

\"Evidently\", \"It appears that\", \"Seems like\",…I'll even take an \"all signs point to\".

Just thought up of another game I want to see a sequel to. Drill Dozer. Probably the last great game for the GBA. Look it up if you have to. It's really good.

Response to Episode 32 – Unannounced sequels you would and wouldn't like to see:

Speaking of portable games for the Nintendo platform, I would love to see another “Elite Beat Agents” that was originally for the Nintendo DS. Yes, I know it's silly and wacky, but all in a good way with great selection of music!

Also on the music note, I wouldn't mind another Rock Band game with maybe more instuments, or better yet, “air-guitaring” or “air-drumming” using the Kinect with full body recognition so you get extra points for performing Pete Townshend's signature strumming while in mid-air!!! Almost like a cross between Dance Central and of course Rock Band!

Finally on the puzzle front, I wouldn't mind seeing another Puzzle Fighter!

Still catching up…apparently there is an overuse of a certain adverb I take it?

Stop it people! Just stop it! I don't want to think about this while I'm playing \"Words with Friends\" app. I'm sure Jas will not appreciate it. Look at that, I almost try to spell it two times there…

Damn you Kirby!

Response to Episode 37 – Best Female Protagonists and Linear vs Open World games:

On the first topic, Best Female Protagonists, how can you not mentioned Samus. So of course need to reiterate her! However, now that I think about it, there are a lot of supporting female protagonists. Examples:

- Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2

- Chloe Frazer from Uncharted 2

- Cortona from Halo series

Amazingly these characters have a lot of personality, strong, and very likeable. Of course having a create story teller on the team helps a lot to.

In terms of the second topic, linear vs open world games, like Wolf, I love my open world games including Bethesda's Oblivion and Fallout 3, because there's so much to do. I love exploring without restrictions. Noticed Western RPGs fall into the open world category. When Borderlands came out, there's a lot of exploring, but there are some linearity to it with the missions, where some missions tried to the main story! What's even better about that game, you can have friends explore with you.

I don't know if you guys consider this, but there's a game I think merges to two to a certain extent: Bioshock. Of course the main appeals of the game are about game mechanics and story, but you can get away from the linear main story to experience a creepy, avande-garde world and find artifacts with some side stories about the main story.

Games like God of War, Bayonetta, and Devil May Cry, which I consider very linear, but I love the game mechanics. Noticed they fall under the violent action adventure genre.

Overall, it depends on the game, but I still love my open world games, but that's why I don't do it that often anymore. So much of a time sink!
