Otaku 5-0 Season 2: Episode 4

Aloha everyone!

This harsh economic climate brings a great deal of uncertainty to all of us. We see some drastic changes on the horizon, and we are overcome with a slight tinge of despair. However, take heart in that there are some things that will (no matter how much we want to admit we wish for it) NEVER, EVER CHANGE.

Yesterday, for the first time in 3 weeks, the scheduling stars aligned and we actually had the opportunity to get together and record a podcast episode. I know this statement seems a bit tired, but I am proud to announce that THIS is the longest podcast episode we have produced (so far.)

This episode marks the return of Sage to our podcast panel. It also brings us into his style of free-flowing conversation that has become a staple of his appearances with us. Neko-X and myself do our best to keep up, but Sage clearly leaves us choking on the thick dust left in his wake. At this point, all I can tell Sage is to be careful, lest he finds himself in the Moderator's seat at some point this season.

Finally, this is the third episode we have produced that requires me to use any type of disclaimer statement. So, consider yourself warned thoroughly in advance.

Haha good episode guys. Just thought I'd add that Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask also couldn't run without the expansion pack on N64. Also FF2 in US is FF4 in Japan but they made remakes of that and 6. Not that bad I have to point out. Keep up the good work!
