Chris, was your mike acting up or was skype screwing with you again? Your voice sounded funky at times.

That would be Skype. We haven't switched to Hangouts yet, but will soon.

Just adding a reply good episode.
Shame I can't contribute on the main topic.
However in regards to the mailbag questions, yeah you did accidentally go back over them a second time(my follow up mailbag entry should've indicated that)
Oh well :P
My point in regards to the older Time Crisis games, eh, true the move didn't do well, but it seemed to work.
And the only releases the older games got was on PS2 and you can't use light gun accessories nowadays.

On top of that well arcades are dying out, so haven't got many options left to play them how they are meant to be played.

Great episode. I'm so gonna give the walking dead a shot once I have the time and have finished the other steam games on my queue.

It's been a while, but the solution to my Zombie mansion scenario was something like this: There's a loose carpet, right? You can trip the zombie up by pulling the carpet, and when he's on the ground, stomp on his head, eliminating the risk of mutation. This isn't going to alert the other zombies. That way, you can kneel on the floor and aim for the doorknob in such a way that when you shoot it, the bullet's going to penetrate the knob and hit any potential zombie in the head. The other zombies will rush you, but at least you can run out the door.

Looking forward to the next one!
Seeing people for who they are; not who you think they are, not what you want them to be. Seeing someone unconditionally, without paranoia, without prejudice, without stereotypes, without fear...That's what "love" is.
"Love" is looking into a person's eyes and seeing a soul.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Awesome.


And I really need to put in my thoughts on The Walking Dead for the next game club. I mean, hell, I bought it on Vita just so I could play it again for the game club.


Oh, and I do not boost things. That would be wrong.

Having read Ready Player One a while back when Chris first introduced it my anticipation for the next episode has gone over 9000.
