Excellent. Two hours, a great topic, and Jenn Frank to spite the haters. The world is a great place.

Alright Jeremy, all we need now is a 3 hour Retronauts on the future of retro gaming on the iPhone. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

Saying this episode is about Game Boy is like saying Star Wars is about life as a Tatooine moisture farmer.

Too late. My expectations are already sky high and can never be met. Furious episode rant incoming.

I'm sorry, I'm not used to the podcasts new format yet. If I ever create a Retronauts thread again, I'll make sure to include the other topics.

I did not leave the Vandal-Hearts' and FF remakes topics out of the thread title maliciously.

Please forgive me.

P.S. I'll see what I can do about Goichi Suda. No promises though:lol

But do you like her as more than a friend?

I wish they could get Retronauts fixed on iTunes. Even via my Touch it still shows January as their last show listed.

Are you subscribing to the 1UP feed or the specific Retronauts feed?

iTunes in general is slow to update. Usually takes 24 hours for many of my weekly podcasts to show up.

Jeff Jenn was awesome. It's not really fair to bring her back for one episode. I'd forgotten how good she is on the show. She sounds different though. Wiser.

I like the format. I haven't listened to a couple of Retronauts recently because the subject matter just meant nothing to me (Suikowhat?), so having the episodes talk about a couple of topics means I should usually have something to enjoy. And letters should run as long for however long you can drag it out for. It's a fun segment.

I am not subscribed, I snag them individually as they appear but as I said if you go to "Retronauts" on iTunes via the Touch/iPhone it shows the last show being January as it has been since I got my Touch in February.

I've been using the Touch to download my podcasts directly from there as I hate iTunes on the PC but even on there it's not updated.
