2P START! Live!: Technical Difficulties Edition

Live!

TimTim and Ray encountered some serious site problems that became even worse after they wrapped up this podcast. Thankfully, it’s all been worked out since you’re reading this, right? Right?

    Great podcast!
    I can’t wait for the new t-shirt design.
    I am sad that we’ll have a 2 week break between seasons..just don’t end on a cliffhanger. I guess I’ll have to go back and listen to the old podcasts that happened before I joined, since I didn’t do that. That seems to be the “in” thing now a days with new posters.
    I liked how Ray tried to change Tim’s black doom to Microsoft.

    Okay, so here I go again with the epitome of a long post.

    1. I was going to ask what the point of the seasons are…but I suppose you supplied a decent answer…

    2. I totally understand why you need to take a break everyone once in a while, but that doesn’t mean I’m happy about it. XD I generally DO actually look forward to the podcasts more than the comics. With the comics it’s just kinda “Oh, that really funny NCG!” but with the podcasts I get to make big long posts like this!

    3. Random, but I like how you use the Paper Mario music for the Internet Loot section

    4. I once again have seen the Internet Loot before this podcast. In fact it’s in my favorites on my youtube channel page. Seriously, watching that never gets old.

    5. And I would think that the site crashing would actually be a good thing, maybe that’s just me. XD Because of the tons of people…yeah….

    6. When you said you should be on Judge Judy, I of course immediately thought of Phoenix Wright.

    7. It’s quite obvious that the “Support out Troopas” shirt is the best selling one. You always post it as the sample when there’s a sale, and it’s the one I bought.

    8. Awesome job using the Investigation ~ Cornered music there with the mention of Phoenix Wright.

    9. Oh and don’t hire Phoenix Wright, hire Mia Fey (technically hire Maya Fey, but whatever), she’s cooler.

    10. And if the comic had been horrible, I think that pic of Jigglypuff crying would’ve made up for it. You should post it just for the heck of it, it sounds funny. You should have different Jigglypuff emotes to use on the forums or something. XD

    11. And Jigglypuff is a balloon, not a marshmallow, get your facts straight! 🙂

    12. Okay…who the heck is Kim Kar-whatever? I’ve never heard of her…should I have?

    13. You spent 18 hours on the comic, but I’m still wondering if that’s better than the-what 2?-you spent on Level Up! I believe it was….

    14. It’s very primitive, but couldn’t you just use the print screen (prt sc) button to capture the different stages of the comic?

    15.Oh, and I’m sorry, but if you don’t like Brawl OR Dancing with the Stars, then there is something wrong with you. XD

    16. And I didn’t get the audition tape joke. Probably because I don’t know who she is. And because I don’t get the joke, I’m going to get technical about it. 🙂 I highly doubt DWTS even uses audition tapes…because y’know, they aren’t supposed to be good…unless the use the tapes to see how bad they are instead…

    17. Okay this is so random and so weird, but I want to say it. I’m not sure if you know, but Mel B used to…I guess…spank Tom Bergeron when she left the stage. Jigglypuff should’ve done that! XD Kidding of course, but it would’ve made me laugh.

    18. This is also really random, but it popped into my head so I’m going to say it. Tim, apparently you are losing your hair…but you wear a hat anyway…who cares? XD Kidding of course again.

    19. Couldn’t think of a bad Sonic character this time…or are we out?

    20. Go ahead and bash Microsoft all you want, in fact I encourage it!

    21. And wow, you’re right those pics are really a rip-off of what Nintendo is doing…

    22. And why does that dude have a headset on if he’s playing with a friend…I don’t know maybe I’m missing something here…

    23. Maybe that guy in the back of the Lips pic has played too much Apollo Justice and is seeing if an air guitar does actually make sound (Klavier Gavin for those who don’t know what I’m talking about. He plays the air guitar and you actually hear sound).

    24. You said people don’t really anticipate downloadable games that often…but umm…Megaman 9? Not that I’m looking forward to it, probably won’t even get it *crowd gasps* but meh…

    25. And I have to agree with Tim. The Subspace Emissary was just…meh. It would’ve been SO much better if you visited different places like in Melee’s adventure mode.

    26. And yeah, I could care less about Castle Crashers, but that’s probably just because I don’t own a 360.

    27. And I’m still convinced that Super Sluggers is good. Yes I almost tore my hair out over the second match against Bowser and the match against Bowser Jr. in DK’s stadium, but it’s not like the controls were at fault…oh, but I did realize something. Playing with the nunchuk and playing against someone without it…is IMPOSSIBLE!

    28. However, two days after I got Sluggers I got Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness, and I have to say, that I probably enjoy that more.

    Okay, there we go, my huge long comment is over (I bet no one reads this anyway XD).

  3. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Great podcast guys! I love the Kirby Falcon Punch Remix! I think I first heard it back before Brawl was released.

    I actually have a good idea for another thing you can sell in the store, although it might take some more work. Once you have about 100 comics, you should make a book with 50 or 100 comics in it and sell it for $15-$20. I’d buy one. 😀

    And I’m guessing it’s the Support our Troopas shirt that sells the most.

    I would have been so sad if you guys had put up that picture of Jigglypuff crying. ;_; Thank you.

    Would there be a way to make Ray have a special outline for being the artist? It should be red, like his icon. Just a thought.

    It totally sounds like Tim is laughing evily in the Black Doom Award intro.
    I also think I hear him in the Remix intro. Is that him in either of them? It’s been bugging me a whole lot lately.

    I wish I could see those Microsoft pictures, but the podcast downloaded to iTunes for some reason.

    You don’t like the SSE, Tim? D: For some reason, I really liked it. Then again, things seem much better when I’m tired, and it seems to carry over to when I’m not tired.

    And I still think you guys should have a special guest reader in each one, but it’d be pretty hard.

    Anyway, sorry for my long comment, but I sort of typed this while I listened.

  4. Anon says:

    Not everything has been fixed…
    Forum purge…
    That also explains why I couldn’t access the site for most of the day yesterday.

    Also you guys just discovered FALCON PAUNCH!!

    So…what is the offline schedule for the next month or so….?

    For the shirts, you should make them so that they have more to do with the games then the comic.

  5. roadjcat says:

    And I still think you guys should have a special guest reader in each one, but it’d be pretty hard.

    You mean what we were talking about last week? Yeah, I don’t know how that would work. I assume by reader you mean us right? In fact, I don’t even know how Tim and Ray do it… *is curious now* XD

    It totally sounds like Tim is laughing evily in the Black Doom Award intro.

    Isn’t that because he is?

  6. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    You see, I’m not sure. It could just be an audio effect by Ray.

  7. roadjcat says:

    I’m pretty sure that Ray has said that it is actually Tim…of course he also says the podcast is live. XD

  8. Tim says:

    Yes it is me…MWUAHAHA!

  9. CKcheeseboy says:

    See, I would guess that the “This is how I roll” t-shirt would be the best seller, unlike a few of the other comments.

    12. Okay…who the heck is Kim Kar-whatever? I’ve never heard of her…should I have?
    16. And I didn’t get the audition tape joke. Probably because I don’t know who she is.

    Well, I really only heard of her by watching “The Soup” on E!, and Joel McHale (the host) pretty much sums it up…I won’t say it, but you can find it here (Warning: not PG).

    I wish I could see those Microsoft pictures, but the podcast downloaded to iTunes for some reason.

    Hmm, if you got the m4a version, the pics should still be there. I just subscribed to this podcast in iTunes so it downloads them automatically every week, and I get the pictures fine. Do you have the little preview window in the lower left corner up?

  10. Finally finished it!

    So Ray, verdict on Sluggers?

    Great podcast guys. I don’t know what I’m going to do when you take hiatus from these.

  11. roadjcat says:

    Wow, I don’t think they should really have her on the show…and I like Mark Ballas, too bad he’s partnered with her…I dunno, maybe she’ll grow on me, but I highly doubt it.

  12. Loooca says:

    @Remix/Loot: That video never gets old. Nintendo should seriously consider awarding the guy who did it, whoever the genius is, at Nico Nico.

    @Topic of the Week: As bad as it must have been (Ray, I laughed every single time you complained about LACKING A SITE, lulz), it happened for a good reason. And the Level Up! comic is worth it.

    @Comic Talk: Really, I don’t think there should have been a joke. It’s Jigglypuff. A beautifully done Jigglypuff, at that. That’s all we could ask for. (Jigglypuff crying in the corner would have sent hardcore, tough gamers crying in their very own corners.)

    @Black Doom: Please keep the Microsoft bash— er, criticising continue. It makes my day. And my God, I’m sure Nintendo would be suing them for ripping off their “Happy Family!” motto of the past 20 years, if they weren’t so nice. Honestly, what is that mother playing? Ecco? Or maybe she just saw this “Halo” her little son is playing all the time, eh.

    @:The Hiatus: You guys know we live off you two, don’t run off or something during these two weeks… really, don’t.

    And, yes, finally! The numbers (of the comments) don’t interfere with the comments anymore! Did you guys fix it? Either way, it was bugging me for ages. Am glad it’s gone.

    I wish I could see those Microsoft pictures, but the podcast downloaded to iTunes for some reason.

    Command G and the little window will pop up to your left, under your playlists; assuming you’re using a Mac, of course. And if not, View > Show Artwork will do. You’ve got to see the pictures, they’re more hilarious than… than Microsoft itself.

  13. D3vin says:

    A possible solution for the website problem if it ever arises again, you should have a backup called 2pStart! lite, it is the same but without the forum and coments, that will be used until the ‘full’ version (with the forum and comments) is back up.

    I liked the remix, I watched that video a lot and it is funnier every time I see it…

  14. Rokai says:

    More chickens in Season 2?

    I heard you like my Jigglypuffs!
    New winning formula approaching!
    Yeah Jigglypuff’s cool.

    Tim: “I’d even gone back in the past”
    Wow that’s impressive.

    Joey!!!

    PS:I just found out it’s Sonic&Knuckles Final Boss theme. I love that song.

  15. Tacos says:

    That Kirby song is awesome. ‘Nuff said.

    Anyway, as for t-shirts, you really can’t go wrong with a number of your comics. My list would be
    -Q-Bert/Birdo design
    -Level Up! could be done, but I think another webcomic has a shirt that says something like “this shirt gives me + agility” or something
    -Goomba vs Roomba
    – Captain Rainbow (killer)
    -Theory of Evolution

    And I’m assuming that “This is how I roll” is the best-selling one. I almost bought one, but spent money on other stuff (mainly video games, so don’t feel offended). But I know that I would ask for these shirts for Christmas for sure.

  16. Narnian says:

    I can’t listen to it- it’s just a bunch of letters and diamond-encased question marks. I clicked on the “listen to m4a version” button and it just showed up like previously mentioned… I guess I’ll check back tomorrow. 😉

    It’s working okay for me, but I understand people are having troubles with this file (even though I’ve done nothing different since the first episode…)

    Perhaps try right-clicking the link, download it to your desktop, and try opening it with Quicktime (or definitely iTunes). Sorry for all of the trouble, everyone. We’re looking into it as best we can.

  18. Tacos says:

    I just subscribe on iTunes. It’s always worked fine for me, and you even get the images along with it.

  19. tustin says:

    Okay, I admit, I didn’t listen to the podcast until now. I also wasn’t going to comment because of this, but then Tim gave me comment of the week. So your welcome, Tim. I’m glad you could get it working. And thanks for comment of the week! 😀
