    Hello again,
    Checking to see if I am able to submit a comment this week.
    I am obviously unable to discuss things I have worked on recently and currently, however here are a just a few titles that I have had the pleasure of working on and remembering you guys commenting on.

    Silent Hill V: Homecoming
    Red Faction Guerilla & Armageddon
    Uncharted 3, 4, & lost legacy
    The Last of Us

    During my time in games I have worked for two separate service groups that focus primarily on Cinematic sequences as an animation lead, which has allowed me to be apart of so many different titles over the years.

    My demo reel is about 5 years out of date and only has a sample of the scope of work that was done, however feel free to take a look.

    Also Brad, I'm a huge Final Fantasy Tactics and Xcom fan. Question; Is Unsung Story even happening or whats the story with that?

    Cheers,
    -James

    Hearing that the podcast was finally on Spotify absolutely made my week. Been a long time listener (2008 or so) and vividly remember the first time I heard you guys. I was standing at a train station in Denmark listening to David talk about Metal Slug 3 on XBLA.

    So upon discovering that there were episodes from 2009 on Spotify, I took a trip down memory lane last week and listened to some old episodes of yours. I had some strong nostalgia while listening and I gotta be honest, I got a little emotional.
    Thank you so much for all these years!

    Since you guys briefly talked about Warcraft 3 and other RTS games, I still have fond memories of Warcraft 3's single player and multiplayer modes. The real draw of multiplayer for me wasn't facing other opponents in skirmishes, but it was the sheer variety of custom games available. Warcraft 3's map editor was really detailed and the people that came up with new games were able to utilize it in creative ways to make a wide variety of maps ranging from tower defense to hero arenas. One game even had a save and load system which allowed a player to carry over their data from one session to another.

    I'll be waiting for 2002 month to see it on the feed. :P

    Too bad about brad's Tomb Raider III stream, but I get not wanting to play the PS1 version. Any chance he'll try to stream it again?

    I loved 1998 month and when there are themed months in general~ It was a tough month to stick to that! Only thing that let me down is that we didn't get MGS1 to work on it's night, or any alternate night.

    Dear 4Player Network:

    You may want to test your gameplay footage before you start recording the podcast, if time allows. Being able to watch it yourselves would probably be better than not having it at all, if it won't play properly on the feed.

    Love the show, keep up the good work!

    Sincerely yours,
    HeadshotToTheDick™
