    Like Duck Tales, the Megaphones Ahoy! Podcast begins with catchy theme music.

    I was JUST about to comment on the theme music. Great opener. Only listened to 9.5 minutes so far – I have to go to work – but it was a very enjoyable 9.5 minutes! A return to form!

    I’ve got bonus length!

    And as far as actual serious comments go, I haven’t finished listening yet, but I agree that Valve is amazing.

    I have to applaud Valve for their innovation. The game delays never really bothered me because there’s always something else to play.

    I agree that Hotel Dusk is awesome. I haven’t tried Trace Memory yet, tho. Too bad Cing went bankrupt and won’t be making games anymore.

    I do enjoy the new music, too.

    Hooray for Lusipurr’s correct pronunciation of my Jap last name. Based on the way he pronounces Yakuza, I was almost positive he would say Wanatabe

    Valve’s new tech is called the Super Emotion Measurement and Enhancement Networking System. That’s right! It’s S.E.M.E.N.!
