    Ha, Knubby Elbows!
    Also, cool crowd cheering!

    Live studio audience… why wasn’t I invited?

    Why is Eddie monotone…oh it’s scripted. lol.
    Heh heh, Jessica is sorta funny.

    Aww Tim, you should treat your wife better. Also, cool Guitar-ing. You do sing well though. Was it lip-synced?

    Give yourself Knubbys! Well, you do deserve it.

    Aww, I got Knub-snubbed… Granted only two went to real commenters.

    There are way to many Sonic characters…

    I WON I WON!
    OMG! OMG! I WON!
    YES! YES!

    Hoot Pockets!! Reminds me of Jim Gaffigan.

    Ooo, the intro is building suspense. I’m shaking with anticipation.

    MAN ICARUS!!! Hooray!!! Just as funny as I remembered it.

    Man, I missed some good podcasts at the beginning. I really should’ve gone back and listened, but I can’t stand listening to old news no matter what it is. Poor Jessica, no video game knowledge, and some tough breaks from the listeners.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I prefer Sonic Boom to Super Sonic Racing. Maybe, its just me. But is there a chance we can get Tim’s rendition of Super Sonic Racing in mp3 format? That’d be awesome. I could definitly fall asleep to that.

    Charmy!!! NO!!! No one likes him, and it was nice to remember I’m not alone.

    Man, Charles Martinet is kind of a creepy guy. Always calling and stuff. Eek!

    Nub-snubbed??? That sounds terrifying. But I like the Wind Waker music in the back.

    A very good choice for best comic. Not my personal favorite, but stellar nonetheless. And you’re right on the money with the best podcast.

    Comment of the year?!? That must’ve been insanely hard to choose.

    No surprise with Brawl. None whatsoever. But Bioshock did in fact “shock” me. I didn’t think Donkey Kong’s super soccer move was that intense. 🙂

    Aww, poor Super Mario Sluggers. No love to it at all from Tim. And I have not played that or Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, but I was pretty sure it would be no good, beat down trash.

    Umm, I take back what I said about Charles Martinet. Black Doom is much creepier. Oh God, the horror of the memories of that godawful game.

    Once again, Charmy gets hated on. But Betty the Badger was alright. Oh wait, that’s right, it was never in a Sonic game therefore avoiding any negative connotation associated.

    I’m actually surprised that Sonic and the Black Knight didn’t get the ultimate Black Doom award. But funny you mention the water mark, because I still haven’t gotten my new cover either.

    FINAL SEGMENT!! Aww I didn’t win, but at least my IP isn’t banned. I didn’t intend it to be creepy, but others took my idea and ran with it, so to speak.

    And congratulations Anon!

    In all the excitement I forgot to ask… How do I claim my prize?

  4. roadjcat says:

    Actually, I’m not going to do my usual wall of text this time.

    But anyway, good podcast, I was expecting a lot from this podcast, but that’s my own fault, the podcast was good.

    All the guests were so nice weren’t they?

    For me, my favorite comic was the Mario Kart Wii one…I don’t really know why, but I thought that was very funny.
    However, I do like the Koopa and Goomba story arch for one reason…at the AA meeting, there was a Metroid. Which brings me to my next point: This site SEVERELY lacks Metroid content….seriously, wasn’t there only one Metroid related comic, which was a guest comic?

    And I knew you guys would pick the podcast you did. My favorite podcasts are the ones where I get to rant about stuff.

    Giving ??? the award really did make me laugh…which again brings me to another point, the Knubby awards, while a great name, were a tad bit disappointing. You only actually gave one reader the award and I was surprised that throughout the podcast, the names Dj#####, D3vin, lwelyk, Meta-Ridley, Sheppy, Metal_Link, and more names I forgot were not mentioned. I kinda expected awards like ‘Most Active Reader’ and things like that, kinda what Dj described all the posts ago…actually wait, wasn’t that the Baddest Company comic? That was the first comic I every posted on btw.

    Okay, best and worst games:
    Brawl…awesome. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption the epitome of awesome.

    Bioshock…really? Wasn’t expecting that. I’m used to hearing about Wii games.

    Worst games:
    Sluggers: Okay, seriously, Tim, I don’t know what game you were playing, but it was not THAT bad. Like Ray, I’d give it a 7. It seems you were expecting a bit too much. It did what I expected it to do and that was all that mattered. And I’m sorry, but I couldn’t even play like an hour of Secret Rings, that was way worse.

    And I also would give Mario & Sonic a 7 or so. I thought it was pretty good. I still play it occasionally. It’s a good workout. XD

    Not very opinionated on any of the Black Doom Awards…in fact, I really couldn’t care less about the IGN watermark…

    Random: But did I hear Pikmin music/sound effects?

    And that’s about it. Can’t wait until Wednesday, and I can’t wait until season two. I guess I’ll have to use Dancing with the Stars to try to make-up for the lack of a podcast…

    EDIT: I lied, it is still a wall of text, but it’s not as organized this time. XD

    EDIT2: Oh yeah, they’re still not cuccos! XD

    Hey guys, just wanted to say awesome podcast. I haven’t really watched the pod casts until like last week but now I know what I am doing every Monday.

    I agree that you guys are gonna be on a long time, especially agreeing with the Sonic thing, he has been around a long time, even though the garbage released lately. Other than Sonic Racing, it was so amazing. But, other stuff has bombed, like sonic battle.

    I always did love that song as well. You should so take recordings of your own performances of all the Sonic R songs, and put them up so we can download them. I would so download it, at least, put Sonic Racing.

    God, Martinet is so strange, he sounds like a rapist. It was creepy, epspecially the second time!

    And now my Knubby opinion…

    First, I wish I had gotten one. But, I didn’t really expect to get one anyway. Congrats All, who won, there is always next year, and I hope to get one… And Tim and Ray, Benjamin says I should win, if you know what I mean? I also remember back then at the 9th issue. WTF, when you said Super Sluggers, I was like WTF!! I don’t really agree with the SSBB, but probably because I am a PS3 fanboy at heart… even though I don’t let it show… So mine would have gone to Metal Gear Solid 4. But for their respective consoles that I have played I agree with you guys. I played The Secret Rings, if it was on 360, otherwise that was another one and it sucked. God, like all those Sonic characters suck! So the ultimate Black Doom, would be the best, horrible, occurrence?
    I agree with the Okami one, but I never heard the 6th episode, but the replacement cover thing is horrible! I don’t have a Wii so I am kind of off on this but I heard of it.

    The praise comments were awesome. The honorable mentions for the the praise awards, the creepy ones, but they are AMAZING! The comment on all we need is each other, although, I cannot tell who is Tim and Ray, but that is probably because I have only heard one before this. The Chuck thing was pretty awesome. Congratulations, Anon, yours was definitely the best, even counting the crazy ones.

    I will make sure to listen to more pod casts now. The chicken thing confused me, could anyone help me out?

    Keep up the Amazing work Tim, and Ray.

    EDIT: I forgot, but I just noticed could anyone help me about the Gravatar thing, I put up one about 1.5 months ago and it still shows the logo?

    Working for the Man podcast I believe. Go check it out.

    *insert ‘got a chaos emerald’ chime here*

    I think I deserve a Knubby(TM) for “most reoccurring guest writer”
    oh, well. I can sell pirated Knubby(no TM) Award statue knock offs on the street corner.

    At least I was named “Son of 2p Start!” in one of the finalsts’ comments.
    i kinda like that…I am D3VIN, SON OF TWO PEA START,

  8. Noodle says:

    Dammit guys, why’d you spoil my fun an also go with kittens >.>

    Kudos anon.

  9. roadjcat says:

    oh, well. I can sell pirated Knubby(no TM) Award statue knock offs on the street corner.

    I’ll have one for longest comments. XD

  10. CKcheeseboy says:

    Dang, almost won! Oh well, it was a great podcast anyway. I loved the “Black Doom” section with all of the different characters.

  11. Eddie says:


    Translation: Nice Podcast Guys, But It Peaked At The 5:30 Mark

  12. NSBAceAttorney says:

    I can’t wait till you guys return!!! I don’t know what to do till you get back, at least I have all the old episodes to keep me warm at night… that sounded really gay… lol

    That one has a laser gun on it!

  13. Rokai says:

    CHICKEEEENS!!! I love you guys.
    Yeah this pretty much was the best podcast ever yet.

    Also congratulations to Anon, I knew 4chan would be victorious.

  14. Metal_Link says:

    Did I say Wednesday? I meant Monday.

    Curse you Mondays!

  15. steve-ohs says:

    Great Podcast! I’m going to miss hearing one next week (unless I listen to old ones). I should post more praise and comments, but I’m in the middle of doing homework.

  16. Andrew says:

    Decent podcast!

    Keep up the good work on everything.

  17. Tim says:

    ANDREW!!! What’s up man? It’s been a month since you posted…and before that another month. Too busy for us?

  18. Narnian says:

    Marvelous podcast guys. I literally laughed out loud when I saw the title. Of course, you realize that since Anon’s life was saved by choosing him as the winner, everyone else is going to kill themselves in despair (jk) (I blame Andrew). Thanks for a great year and congratulations guys! 😉

  19. dj75728 says:

    oh, well. I can sell pirated Knubby(no TM) Award statue knock offs on the street corner.

    I’ll have one for longest comments. XD

    Umm, sorry. But I think Sheppy has a firm lock on that one.

    AND I DIDNT GET JACK CRAP!!!!! DUBYA TEE EF GUYS!!!!!! Well screw knubby’s then! I mean, c’mon! DX………also I blame Andrew >.>

    …………………………I’ll listen to it later XD

  20. lwelyk says:

    I don’t know how much I like being called something out of maple story… >_>

    Also, moar nubbies next year. Like most contests won. XB That way I’ll get one.

  21. Andrew says:

    ANDREW!!! What’s up man? It’s been a month since you posted…and before that another month. Too busy for us?

    Oh, haha. Yeah, I’ve been busy. Trying to find some work, not having internet, you know, the usual. I still have the RSS feed on google reader, but I dropped the comments feed.

  22. roadjcat says:

    Umm, sorry. But I think Sheppy has a firm lock on that one.

    Ahh….you are correct. But I usually have the longest comments for the podcast.

    If that doesn’t work then I’ll take one for being freakishly obsessed with Nintendo…or something to that effect (i.e. Trauma Center, Phoenix Wright, Metroid…)

  23. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Gah! I can’t believe I missed this! Dang, I wish I had found this site sooner. I don’t think I have enough patience to listen to every podcast. What would be some ones worth listening?

    The call from Mario was awesome! He talked for so long that his message was cut off on my voice mail. He said so many pointless things! “You can see me in my Bee Suit! Woohoo!”

    I suppose I should say my best and worst games of the year.

    Best: SSBB and the Orange Box (I couldn’t really decide)

    Worst: Hmm… I suppose Shadow the Hedgehog. I decided to try and play it again. So, yeah, it still sucks. 😛 Although, that wasn’t released this year so… I have no idea. I tend to buy games that don’t suck.

    I had no idea that Black Doom would show up as a guest! That was quite a surprise! I also had no idea that Ray screwed up the Black Doom Award intro so many times.

    Darn. I didn’t win a single award. 🙁 Oh well. There’s always next year! 😀

    And I’m glad that the Chicken Grab made a reappearance.

    Finally, amazing podcast guys. This is easilly the best podcast you guys have done. Not the funniest, it’s going to take a lot to dethrone Black Doom Edition. This one seems the best made, with all of the editting and such. Keep up the great work! I eagerly await Season 2! (And sorry for my long comment!)

  24. CKcheeseboy says:

    Also, a bit of criticism that I didn’t mention before: I didn’t really like the guest callers segment. Part of what I like about your podcasts is they are spontaneously funny and that you guys are pretty much just coming up with funny stuff as you talk to each other. The guest calls just seemed too forced to me. It could just be me and my dislike for forced humor (it certainly seems like other people enjoyed that segment), but I didn’t really find them that great. Eddie’s was OK, but that might be because it didn’t seem as forced as the others (besides the obvious part at the beginning).

    Although I do have to say, the Charles Martinet part cracked me up. That was great!

  25. Tim says:

    We hear you CKcheeseboy, while I enjoyed Eddie’s call quite a bit, we don’t want to make a scripted show that we just act out each week. This podcast wasn’t a typical one since it was the season finale, so I think it was alright, but I get your point. There will be plenty of spontaneous banter in season 2!

    Yeah, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that all of a sudden I think your podcasts will all be scripted and I won’t listen anymore, but I just figured I’d mention it.

  27. Dad says:

    Very entertaining podcast…very funny…and Tim playing his guitar and singing,too…I’ll bet no one really thought you did that…keep up the great work….Dad

  28. tustin says:

    Aww… my contest entry didn’t even get mentioned, even as a creepy one… 🙁

    Great Podcast Guys! <– See! I wrote it out! I’m doing extra work! 😀

    Love the whole knubby awards thing, but I missed the changing images (of course, they could have changed and I didn’t see them…). I like the phone calls, even if they were scripted, they seemed real and were really funny because of the “behind the scenes” stuff. 🙂

    Okay, now the chicken grab has intrigued me. Someone needs to make a flash game with it – preferably one of those terribly done ones where an image of Tim blatantly ripped from the strip runs around a chicken yard with terrible controls and tries to catch chickens. The sound for this podcast’s and previous podcast’s chicken segments is used and annoyingly looped over the course of the game and the chickens that have blasters would be able to kill Tim with one hit, and MOST of the chickens would have blasters just to make it inexorably and obnoxiously difficult. Also, the game could have a system where it switches back and forth between Tim and Ray (whose graphic is also blatantly ripped from the comic), sort of like the old Mario and Luigi games.

    I won’t be the one to make the game described because a) even though I’m good at programming I’ve yet to finish a game that I started on a whim and b) if I’m going to make the game, I’m not going to have to make it good. 😀

  29. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Oh, and I would like to add that I also believe that the next Nubbies Awards should have more awards. This year had like only 4 or 5.

  30. Supersonic24 says:

    Starts with “K” and ends with “Onami”. lol! Also, Mario Super Sluggers was that bad?

  31. ­ says:

    Love the fake audience that you guys make fun of in the newest postmortem. (I can tell its fake by the lack of laughter from the audience in the Mario parts and that they fall off the face of the earth until the end)
    Mario is the best part of the episode.

    Calibur the Sword I mean Black Doom.

    You got the days backwards.
