    Like many here, I have been a fan of yours since the 1up days, and more or less followed you here when that site shut down. While I am sad to see you leave, I am excited for your future, and equally excited for the future of this site as I am excited to see the new direction it takes. I have all the confidence in the world in you, Kat, and the rest of the Usgamer team. Thank you for all the many years of excellent content, and to everyone, here's to many more.

    Trying to listen to this via mobile, and getting an error message. Anyone having this problem?

    The music in megaman 4 is (in my opinion) unfairly overlooked. Unfair in the sense that the mega buster charge is the reason most cite as the reason for it's dismissal: it takes up some of the sound channels that is also occupied by the music, resulting in the soundtrack "cutting out" while the Buster is being charged.

    However, while this is a valid complaint of the technical limitations of the Famicom, it says nothing of the musical compositions that megaman 4 offers, which are (once again, in my opinion) among the best in the series. Fantastic article Nadia, this game is long over due for some positive discussion.

    Just adding my two cents, but that was a fantastic episode, Kat! Really enjoyed hearing the talk on Final Fantasy XII, especially the behind the scenes stuff, and John was a very interesting guest, would like to hear more from him in the future. Hearing about JRPGs from the PS1/PS2 heyday are among my favorite topics, and this episode really reminded me of ATB. Keep it up!

    A fantastic piece for my favorite sub-genre of gaming: image quality. I started down the RGB rabbit hole a few years ago, and have gone from an RGB to Component transcoder for my sony wega crt, to a genuine Sony PVM 14m2U. I think that's the furthest out I'll go...but when it comes to the search for the perfect retro gaming setup, never say never. In either case, thoroughly enjoyed this article sir!

    Well done, mr. Williams. I, like many of you, am still coming to grips with this. I agree with Mike, Iwata was truly Nintendo personified. He brought much joy to this world, and there will never be another like him. Such a tragic loss.Edited July 2015 by Unknown

    Articles such as this is what separates US Gamer from the rest of the pack, and the reason it is among my favorite sites to visit. Excellent work Jeremy, I especially enjoyed the information regarding the early works of Inti Creates. Had no idea that Inti Creates had been around for so long. Speed Power Gunbike (similar in name to "Azure Striker Gunvolt, hehe) looked pretty cool, however Love and Destroy looked AMAZING! Would love to see a remake of that on the 3DS. Anyway, once again, fantastic article.Edited April 2015 by Unknown

    ...with all of these companies going out of business, and others firing employees left and right, not to mention the high cost needed to produce games in today's market....does anybody else think we're headed for another video game crash? Maybe I'm wrong, and it's too late, but I would be for it in the sense that maybe established developers and newcomers alike could sort of come together and "reset" the industry, bringing it back to what made it great in the first place, the games. Just my two cents.

    Really enjoyed the podcast, but I do have to echo what some others have said. Kat really tried to keep things moving, but I felt at times that Jeremy would make it unnecessarily difficult for her. I've been a fan of Parish since his retro column in EGM, and I love his work. But I actually felt bad for Kat here. It sort of killed the vibe of the show at times. Regardless, glad to see one of my favorite podcasts make a triumphant return.
