    It was great hearing even a little bit about game music in this episode. I absolutely love game music and think it’s some of the most under appreciated works out there. It’s come a long way since the bleeps and bloops of the 80’s but I still have some OSTs of games back from the NES days and love them. I do believe the OST for Super Nintendo’s Final Fantasy III is the best I’ve heard on any Nintendo game and easily Uemastu’s best. Currently, I’ve really been enjoying the OST for Xenoblade Chronicles.

    Noah, I know you touched on this saying that Final Fantasy IV was one of your favorites, but if you had to choose, what is? Evan?

    There is something I have been thinking lately about 2 things one is that it looks like nintendo direct is nintendos way of getting around the mainstream now think about the last few years kain and lynch is a good starting point if you get were im going with this another thing is that while everyone is upset about nintendo stepping on the toes of lets plays no one has put much thought as to why while i like lets plays (hint) i don’t thing this is about stopping lets plays or even money if you read the statement so if i’m to point out an optimistic posability its that nintendo might expanded the screen capturing ability of the wii u and 3ds wishful thinking i know i vote for kid icarus next game night oh and about the new x box lets say i had fun listening to everyone rant about it lastly i think you should have an open door policy about having a third pod-caster from guests like johntron from gamegrumps ( don’t bother with egoraptor since he dislikes being on podcasts) to whoever on the staff happens to be free on recording night
