OK, I double checked and the More Money ability apparently READS like it stacks, but does not due to a translation error, so I was decieved! In reality, the exploit involves getting multiple golden eggs, which DO stack (despite how their description reads) but that isn't really worth it since equipping them keeps you from earning EXP and JP.

[edit] Also, while I'm here, here's some of the music I like from MM 5:

I did say best, but I will agree with Angelo's dislike of that term.  There are plenty of games that are my favourite, but I know are not technically the best games in those series.

As far as Nintendo is concerned.  I think that the successor to the Wii U will come out in a couple of years.  Right around the midpoint of the PS4/Xbox One generation.  It will have comprable specs and come at such a time that people will start looking for a new alternative to their now 4-5 year old system.

I agree with you on time of release, but I think it will be a slight step up in performance from the current consoles. That's, in my opinion, one of the biggest things holding the Wii U back at the moment.

That would be something. Nintendo has really only been ahead of the curve once, and that was the SNES.

Of course, that was also the best time in Nintendo's history in my opinion, so I'd love to see them try and outdo the competition.

Important: Looking up R-Type sperm in Google Images merely gives you proof of Angelo's words. Typing R-Type penis on the other hand, is inadvisable. Especially if you're like me and have a bit of a stomach bug at the moment.

Bill Cosby Himself was my favorite thing to watch as a kid at my grandpa's house. Kudos on that reference. It actually catalyzed my interest in stand-up.

And hey, a fellow TASM2 fan! I'm not alone after all. And I even agree about the overly hammy acting. Granted, I would have liked the movie to be focused only on the relationship and Green Goblin (Dane Deehan). 

Mega Man 2's music is definitively better. That is a fact. Other than the opening, as Patrick mentions. Everything else, no. It is BETTER than Mega Man 3's music. It is in fact THE BEST in the series. 

Mega Man Dies at the End wasn't originally an hour long though, Patrick must have just found a compilation video. Machinima tried to capitalize on the success of their Sonic for Hire series and it just wasn't as good as SfH. They're both extremely dumb, but I guess SfH was a better kind of dumb?

I did not know Kelsey Grammar was in Expendables III, but that makes me want to see it. When it comes out on home video. Or on Netflix. Fun Statham fact: Before the movies, he was selling crap out of the back of trucks as a black market salesman. 

P.S. I loooooved The A-Team movie.

Am I really the only MM 3 supporter on this site? Come on now!

I'll give you this for sure though, 2 was a much more dramatic improvement over the first game than 3 was over 2. MM3 was also the first game in the series I played, so that might have something to do with it. After playing 3 I went back and played 2.

Also, Rush > the 3 devices.

Honestly, I totally respect that people like III most of all. If you can get through it, I can see how people see it as the peak of original MM quality. It's just too damn hard for me to be honest. I've only ever beaten Snake Man, I think.

By the way, I changed the way I do the show notes this time. Coolsetzer requested it, and I'll admit it's a little sloppy. But let me know if it is helpful, and I will try and take better show notes as I'm editing.

this was good.  i've gotta make sure to get some questions/talking points in for the next show.  Should I PM them to Julian or will there be another post taking requests as per this last time?

Great job guys!!

You can always PM me with questions for the show or ideas. But for sure the next time we do this there will be another blog post for submissions.
