    Um…Colin Quinn? I’m sure the guest had some heated arguments in his past about how to pronounce the name, which would explain his sternness.

    WIll you guys let me have your children. I’ll get gender correction surgery. Just transplant your fertilized egg into my newly (probably transplanted) uterus, and *bam*, it’s a transplantathon…transplantmania…transplantia (seriously hope you know I’m joking right now).

    kinda sad Emily doesn’t understand how much some of us nerds love street fighter lol.
    but maybe because she just doesn’t know that some nerds have that capcom arcade love and competitive drive.

  4. I know the Kickstarter is for General Chaos, but I just want to say that the Rampage games were some of my favorites as a kid, both on consoles and in the arcades. Anyone involved in giving childhood-me so many hours of mindless joy immediately has my admiration. Much thanks!

    For the brief time that I could claim to be in the game industry I did art for a Rampage game(Through Time). It was sooo on the cusp of being seen as too old school for the times, but I was proud to be involved with the franchise. It felt good to hear it talked about positively.

  6. Royce says:

    Hey guys, I really liked this episode and the recent trend of behind the scenes interviews.

    Just a quick tip: if you need to adjust the volume on your mac during recording, just hold “Shift” while you push the volume button and you won’t hear the pops.

    Not trying to be a jerk or complain, just wanna help.

    Rampage was my jam when I was kid on my 2600.

  9. Colin says:

    I assure you sir, I am not “mistaken.” I and Colin Farrell are reasonably sure we pronounce Colin the correct way
