    Episode 99! I can’t wait for the 24 hour episode 100.

  2. blaster says:

    Got tnough time today, about to listen.
    As usual

    Msical Misfit Suggestion: Arkanoid DS: Fairy Reflection.

  3. Dry Bones says:

    Tim, Lily is adorable! She is mesmerized by the Invincibility video! That’s funny. Imagine how much crying you guys could prevent if you had the Lace game finished! Time to give Doritos a call.

  4. Kvb says:

    What would I like to see in Podcast 100? A regular episode.
    It’s what I come here for, and while celebration is nice, I don’t want to get it in the way of the flow of the show I love.

    Good podcast, guys. I always love the ones with more than 2 Black Doom Awards.

  5. blaster says:

    Actually, you don’t really have to take a week off to prepare Ep100.
    The next week’s episode can be Ep101, then when you’re ready, fill that gap.

    ,,,Sounds a little ridiculous, huh?

    -Game proposal.
    I remember seeing a news where a guy proposes using Brawl, A BIG SUCCESS.
    I wonder how much money Pizza Hut pay them to do this?

  6. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Short podcast this week, but still pretty good! I really enjoyed Tim using Zip Chord to calm down Lily, and the BDAs were hilariously bad as usual. Definitely looking forward to Episode 100!

    • MetaRidleyR27 says:

      For my Musical Misfit suggestion this week, I think I’ll go with Bungie Running Beeps 01 from Rez. I’m pretty surprised that I hadn’t thought about this game until now.

      Rez itself is one of those games that really flew under the radar, even with its recent HD remake on the Xbox Live Arcade. It’s one of the most interesting games I’ve played, with an incredible blending of the game’s soundtrack with the actual gameplay. I’d love to go into more detail, but I’d just end up making this comment too long. Check it out if you’re interested. πŸ˜‰

  7. Brawler08 says:

    Great podcast as usual. I’d like to hear a completely unedited podcast for the 100th episode. I kid I kid. Although I would really like to hear a return of catch the chickens, some trivia of some sort, and maybe something new. Also since you said you want new people to suggest musical misfits may I recommend The Legendary Hero from Wind Waker.

  8. elah says:

    That’s Tim?

      • yeah568 says:

        You don’t look like a whole lot like TiMii. Just saying. Also, you sound a bit different in the video with Lily than in the podcast. Maybe Ray does change your voice to be more manly. XDDDDDD

      • Tim says:

        Well, I do talk to Lily differently than I do to other people. You need to have a higher pitched, less monotone approach when entertaining a 3-month old πŸ˜‰

      • D3vin says:

        Nice glasses, I need to add those in to my next comic. Lily looks cute, and it is nice to see that you are already getting her into the family business of 2P START! Maybe you can let her write a comic when she gets older.

      • CKcheeseboy says:

        Sarah: “Tim, can you check on Lily? She’s crying.”
        Tim: “How dare she.”

      • mkava says:

        I know this is a horribly late comment to this podcast (just relistened due to listening to music collection on random), but CKcheeseboy’s comment was awesome and made me burst out laughing at work.
        CKcheeseboy said…
        Sarah: β€œTim, can you check on Lily? She’s crying.”
        Tim: β€œHow dare she.”

        Awesome! =D

  9. BadnikHunter says:

    Ray, maybe you should make a Lace plushie for Lily, that will probably keep her from crying ;D. As for the proposal, whenever someone proposes with a video game, IF for some reason said person wanted to, then he should have some sort of safety net, but even then its a bad idea. And honestly, that Reflection game art seems like something from Deviant Art.

  10. Apkinesis says:

    Short but sweet! Nice remix selection. Also, I think this was the first time I’ve seen Tim in a video (aside from that cameo you guys had in the background of that one game conference report, but that doesn’t really count). And Lily’s adorable!

    Regarding #100, I have to agree to some extent with Kvb, that an overall “normal” Podcast would be nice, though I’d suggest also throwing in some special segments, like maybe another Knubby Awards, or even bring back some old segments like Trivia for Two, Internet Loot, and Chicken Grab. Something special to celebrate, yet not interrupting the flow.

    Taking a week off to prepare for Podcast 100? [spoiler]Aw man, guess I’ll have to hold off another week on that little surprise I have for you guys.[/spoiler]

    • CKcheeseboy says:

      I’m about to actually listen to the episode, but regarding #100:

      “Something special to celebrate, yet not interrupting the flow.”


    • Apkinesis says:

      Oh, actually, you know what I’d especially love to hear on Podcast 100? I’d like to finally know what the 2P START! intro/outro theme is called and where it was originally from (since if I recall correctly, Ray mentioned at some point that the song was actually taken from a video-game). I’ve been wanting to hear the full song of that for the longest time.

      Though, I doubt the secret will be revealed that easily πŸ˜›

  11. Keja says:

    Interesting podcast this week, but I was looking forward to episode 100 next week.

    The idea to have many callers at once could be a good idea though, but it would be a biznatch to edit.

  12. Keja says:

    Also, nice reference to Jessica at the Olympic games. πŸ˜‰

  13. Mikallein says:

    Great pod cast guys (as always)
    I cant wait for ep. 100 (sad face that i have to wait though..)
    My musical misfits suggestion is the over world them from Lamulana (you tube search it plz)
    Speakin of musical misfits, i think you made a good choice This week Ray.
    I remember playing the demo and thinking that that was a cool song.

  14. TheNinjaMouse says:

    NPG, although maybe a bit too short. Sounds like Ray edited Tim’s third BDA into the outro, but we lost some of the context of what you guys were talking about. Was it a pack of accessories for the Wii? Or something else?

    For episode #100, I second the request for another Knubby Awards! What else…? Maybe the announcement of some new t-shirts? πŸ˜‰ I guess I don’t have any groundbreaking ideas, but I wouldn’t mind taking a week off if you guys think you can come up with something super-special-awesome.

  15. The Gastronomic Gamer says:

    When I saw the article about breaking the TV with the tennis attachment on Kotaku, I thought that it was really weird how nobody else commented on the price. I am never trusting infomercials again. That Snuggy is NOT a $300 value!

  16. Snifit says:

    Good podcast guys. I actually kind of like it when they’re a little shorter. It makes it easier to download on my crappy internet connection.
    I am curious what Tim’s third BDA was.
    Looking forward to podcast 100 as well. Whatever you guys do I have a feeling it’ll be pretty good. (Maybe a “I Know You Didn’t Draw That” shirt?”
    As for Musical Misfits, I’d like to suggest Pirate Man from Mega Man and Bass:

  17. roadjcat says:

    I actually don’t have anything to say really. BDA’s were pretty good and I almost suggested the first Built to Scale song myself a while ago. XD So needless to say, I liked the Musical Misfit.

    More Knubby Awards would be cool for 100, but you should create some new categories.

    Ending bit was funny too.

    As for Musical Misfits: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EaP_9bIyRI

  18. Kvb says:

    Here is my Musical Misfit suggestion:

    The title already says it all, really. It’s the Stage 1 music of Shock Troopers 2nd Squad, called World Wide Connection.

  19. FireSpark says:

    Okay, nice episode, but I gotta sound off about the guy who proposed with Super Mario World.

    The act of proposing marriage is one of those unpredictable situations that can only truly be commented on by those that have proposed themselves (whether successfully or not). Of course, I have no idea whether or not Ray has, but obviously Tim has. And Tim was obviously cautious in his jabbing of this poor guy.

    Myself, I have proposed twice. Two different women, but similar approaches. Turns out, the key thing to proposing, is knowing your target audience, aka “the girl”. Which brings me to my final point: We don’t know this girl, or the guy. For all we know she’s as emotional as Tim on a regular basis. In which case her response to the proposal was akin to an average person winning the lottery.

    So let’s give the guy the benefit of the doubt, cut him slack, congratulate him, and them wish good luck.

  20. D3vin says:

    For the lame videogame related proposals, I have heard of one were someone made a Tony Hawk 2 level that gave you a gap that said “will you marry me” if you did a grind over the entire level.

  21. Apkinesis says:

    Oh yeah, and Musical Misfit suggestion: I’m sticking to one of the songs I’d mentioned before, “Septette for the Dead Princess” (Remilia Scarlet’s theme), but this time as a remix of the original song, which appears in Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody.

  22. Chocolate_bob says:

    Lily should be Lace for Halloween.

  23. mocliamtoh says:

    Nice parenting Tim. I have to wonder what continued exposure to Zip Chord (and a lack of tweens) will do for Lilly’s attention span. That said, I say continue…the cute factor is to great to ignore.

    Now, for Musical Misfits:

    I can’t remember if I submitted some of these before, but I say its ok for episode 100

    Megalomania – Live a Live (SNES)
    Psycho Killing – Live a Live (SNES)
    Clock Work – Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (GBA)
    Tales of Phantasia – Olive Village
    Seiken Densetsu 3 – Damn Damn Drum

    What do you think…too many?
    Didn’t think so ^_^

  24. Highwater Trousers says:

    Got to agree, Lily sure is adorable!

    I guess taking a week’s break to make Episode #100 is a good idea. If you guys wanted to play a joke on us, you could record 5 minutes of the same conversation at loop it for several hours and divide it into a bunch of smaller sections.

    *Intro ends*
    Ray: What do you want to talk about today Tim?
    Tim: I don’t know. What do you want to talk about Ray?
    Ray: I don’t know. What do you want to talk about?
    Tim: I don’t know. What do you want to talk about?

    I’d probably end up listening to the whole thing thinking it would go somewhere.

    Let me try making a musical misfit suggestion, hope I can link it right:

    From Dark Cloud 2, great game, rather underrated.

  25. randomperson says:

    nice podcast guys but are you serious that we have to wait a few weeks for number 100!

  26. pcargill says:

    NPG but you scared me when i saw the title and the picture, i thought ray had proposed to someone, also does this mean i didnt get the job to replace tim?

  27. 285 says:

    Episode 100 should be the Knubby Elbow Awards, your due a series gap

  28. Supersonic24 says:

    I posted this last week, but I think it was too late by then:

    Sorry for the lateness, but I want my first Musical Misfits request to be awesome! Rowdy Rumble from Kingdom Hearts 2 (do you like that series btw?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGsLkQ0vRgc
    also, I would recommend any song from the KH2 soundtrack, some others are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZW0ZmZtcRo&feature=related



    Yeah! 3 awesome Musical Misfit Suggestions! (is that allowed though?) One of them is bound to win!

  29. Talduras says:

    Think I have an idea for your 100th podcast, and depending on how it’s implemented it can still fit the bill of a “normal” podcast that all the fans above seem to be asking for.

    Implement Pixel Vision Adventures! It can be a short segment where you do voices you’d imagine for the characters of that game, or something. I don’t know… sounded better when it was in my head. Maybe it’ll spark some lightning bolt of inspiration for a special podcast in your heads that can be articulated well. =)

  30. Acgamer says:

    Nice (but short) podcast. The part with Lily was absolutely adorable!

    Musical Misfit suggestion:

  31. Talduras says:

    Eh, guess I’ll throw caution to the wind and make a Musical Misfit suggestion also.

    I choose you! Dragon Quest 5– Toward the Horizon! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jym17LTegOw.

    If what I’ve heard is correct, Gamestop no longer carries new copies of this game, and it seems to have generally been discontinued across most major retail outlets (as of this writing, no copies are on sale at Amazon.com through their warehouse). If true, it’s a shame. It’s a good game,* and deserves to be played by more than just the die-hards that know where to find it.

    *(Oddly enough, haven’t finished it yet. In the final dungeon, though).

    • Talduras says:

      Okay, now I did finally finish Dragon Quest 5. Yay! Finished it the day after I finished Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story too. My DS backlog is officially clear… until I buy Scribblenauts and waste the rest of my life toying around with random combinations of objects. ^_^

  32. Iian says:

    This was your first podcast I watched; Are you two always so whiney and negative? Ugh

    • The Gastronomic Gamer says:

      Would you like a podcast in which people talk about how great everything is? Negative feelings inspire conflict and the only things that are interesting in life include conflict.

      • Talduras says:

        Then you might want to stay away from Bejeweled, as you may only find it “interesting” on timed mode. =P

  33. The Gastronomic Gamer says:

    Suggestion for Black Doom (though I know that this will probably disqualify it): http://kotaku.com/5388806/iphone-game-sells-extra-lives-through-in+app-store

  34. The Gastronomic Gamer says:

    Oh, I forgot to say, nice musical misfit! That’s one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite games. Unfortunately, this probably means that you won’t be doing another song from that game and there are so many treasures… (especially in the Japanese version)

    • The Gastronomic Gamer says:

      Just got the Rhythm Tengoku Gold OST and apparently that song isn’t called Built to Scale 2, but Yellow Construction.

      Jesus, I’m commenting a lot.

  35. Doopliss says:

    Lily is the cutest thing. I JUST WANNA DIP HER IN MA COFFEE!

  36. Talduras says:

    Prediction: The recently announced DSi LL will be one of the Black Doom awards for the next podcast.

  37. Shigatai says:

    If you guys want to see an awesome game-related proposal, look at this:

    • Shigatai says:

      Also, I’m posting here because I’m just going through your guys’ archive, considering I found out about you guys a little late haha.
