    The remix is pretty sweet. One of the first one’s I’ll actually take the effort to click and download (I know, I know, I’m lazy)… except the download link from YouTube isn’t working. Darn.

    New comic talk music. I like it. It’s swingin’ and hip.

    This comic hit me with nostalgia and that’s why I loved it. And I am younger than you, but Oregon Trail was around in the 90’s (although it was a slightly updated version to the one you posted).

    More zombies?? They’re so many.

    EDITING?? ‘GASP’

    Just watched the trailer. And do you really want to hear the voice? Honestly, I prefer my ears remaining intact.

    And they won’t kill off Sonic because he sells. Tis sad, yet true.

    Yeah, I kinda do miss the third person now. Everything felt so short because of it. Especially the Black Doom Awards. (My favorite part of any podcast.)

    I agree that Sonic is dead. He was made to compete with the face of gaming himself: Mario. And Sega tried this by making Sonic cool and edgy. But the meaning of those words have changed, and Sonic hasn’t.
    Then again, I’m sure the old fans would hate to see their old Sonic change to keep up with what’s cool… Sega should’ve just chosen a more timeless design for Sonic.

    I never payed much attention to comments until I started posting again myself, so here’s a question you’ve probably seen plenty of times before:
    Where and how can I suggest a musical misfit?

    It may be shorter, but it isn’t lacking content, Just like those tinier laundry detergents, just more concentrated. The remix seemed a bit biased, since Ray is a big Brawl nut. I’m twenty, so I got to play both versions of the Oregon trail. Y’mean ACHIEVEMENTS? 😉 Another mention of Tim’s elusive brother, I see Eddie so much and not Tim’s elusive brother… C’mon, I need the Waluigi to Ray’s Luigi (Eddie)!! We have the technology, we can rebiuld him. BIONIC HEDGEHOG!

    Push A to jump! *achievement unlocked*

    Okay note time:

    1. Was that K.K. Safari I heard the intro? 😀 I love that song. Though watch, I’m totally wrong and it’s Forest Life…

    2. Ever think of a section in Rise From Your Grave for podcast comments?

    3. The remix was pretty spiffy…that’s about it. XD

    4. The comic had a lot of nice touches, like one of the panels saying something to the effect of “Gas: Least of worries”

    5. Technically, Ray, you’ve only said the suggestion box intro 62 times, not 63 (w00t! More nitpicking!).

    6. I think Sonic needs to do a couple things (now I haven’t played many of the newer games, but from what I can tell):
    a. Get rid of all the human characters but Eggman/Robotnik.
    b. If they want to add more characters other than Sonic, pull from the list of characters in Sonic Adventure 2.

    7. Prince of Persia is still on my list of games to get despite all these Black Doom Awards. XD

    8. Okay, I’m practically ecstatic that the Musical Misfit was from something I’ve actually played. XD Correct me if I’m wrong, but they play that song in many different forms throughout the game…that wasn’t really one of the ones I recognized though…the memorable songs for me in TTYD were:
    a. Sadness – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leEM_qfHa-A
    b. Glitzville – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0d1-Dr8Ec4
    c. Ms. Mowz’s theme – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cN44cyWicQc

    Though the original had the best music with things like:
    a. Shiver City – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMr0ragOcIQ
    b. Crystal Palace – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-z08dG5xjo
    c. Dry Dry Desert – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFGkuiNdueo
    d. Flower Fields (which sounded kinda like the bg music for Comic Talk) – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BF2oMljEGmY&feature=related

  5. Ray says:

    Where and how can I suggest a musical misfit?

    Right here, right now. Just make it clear, and throw me a link of the actual game’s recording if possible. Stay away from MIDI remakes…

    1. Was that K.K. Safari I heard the intro?

    Yes! Although slightly edited…

    Ever think of a section in Rise From Your Grave for podcast comments?

    Do you mean talk about the comments left about the podcast? If one is golden enough we’ll use it for suggestion box, but I don’t plan on having a segment dedicated to it though. We do read every comment left here. I especially enjoy the note-taking ones, as they will comment on quick little jokes made that are quickly forgotten.

    C’mon, I need the Waluigi to Ray’s Luigi (Eddie)!!

    Nice comment – Eddie tends to choose Luigi as his playable character.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but they play that song in many different forms throughout the game…that wasn’t really one of the ones I recognized though…were:

    Correct – it is used multiple times. I wish I could play them all, but the intro one had to suffice. Thanks for your picks of favorite songs. At first I was rather taken back by the music in Paper Mario: TTYD, but now I’m very impressed with it. The composer was doing much more with it than I first realized. My other favorites have to be Tec’s Waltz with Peach, the full title screen song, the Doopliss songs, the train song during sunset, and especially Peach’s theme. It’s the most fitting theme for Peach I’ve ever heard – and very memorable. They need to keep these melodies around for future Paper Mario titles, but unfortunately Super Paper Mario did not.

  6. ig0rpwnwEd says:

    You didn’t list my Black Doom award I suggested! Waaaaaaaah!

  7. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Ooh! That remix was excellent! I think I’ll download this one. 😀

    The Oregon Trail is a classic game that everyone has heard of. I mean, this was a really awesome (and original) idea for a comic, and it was overall really well done.

    Back when I read the explanation of how Tim got out of the river and died, I thought to myself, “You know, this is going to get Suggestion Box.”

    Tim has a brother? I never knew that. He should show up as a guest sometime. 🙂

    Wow. Sonic looks completely idiotic in that trailer. I’m not too fond of Sonic and the Black Knight. Although, I’ll crack up if it turns out to be awesome, or even good at all. 😛

    Finally, Nice Podcast Guys! It was a nice, bite-sized podcast, but still managed to be quite good. And I liked how in the Musical Misfits, you got to hear the sound of pages turning every so often. Is that part of the song? Or is that directly from a cutscene? Sorry, I never got around to getting TYD.

  8. roadjcat says:

    Yes! Although slightly edited…

    Yeah, that was probably the only one that I would’ve recognized as it’s easily my favorite K.K. song.

    Do you mean talk about the comments left about the podcast?

    Yeah, if someone says that this is the first podcast that they’ve listened to, or something to that effect, though I have to admit, I’m not sure I’ve actually seen any comment like that…

    I especially enjoy the note-taking ones, as they will comment on quick little jokes made that are quickly forgotten.

    Plural? XD Like anyone does that but me. I assume that was the point of the comment though…

    My other favorites have to be Tec’s Waltz with Peach, the full title screen song, the Doopliss songs, the train song during sunset, and especially Peach’s theme. It’s the most fitting theme for Peach I’ve ever heard – and very memorable. They need to keep these melodies around for future Paper Mario titles, but unfortunately Super Paper Mario did not.

    I can’t say I remember any of those songs, I’ll have to look them up, I’ll probably recognize them then. And yeah, I can’t say I remember any of Super Paper Mario’s music…ah well, at least it had humor on it’s side.

    Is that part of the song? Or is that directly from a cutscene?

    Even I’m not 100% sure, but I think it’s a bit of both as it’s probably the pages turning of the book in the intro…though I don’t remember that well…

    Sorry, I never got around to getting TYD.

    That’s needs to be remedied. XD I’m pretty sure it’s players choice now, so it should be cheap.

  9. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Heck, I could have picked that game up many times. I just feel like playing the original Paper Mario first. I think I got it on VC and never actually played it… I’ve been really busy with my other games lately (I blame Viewtiful Joe :P).

  10. roadjcat says:

    I just feel like playing the original Paper Mario first. I think I got it on VC and never actually played it…

    Hooo boy. Great, now I’ve hyped it up as the best game ever, I’m going to warn you now. Do not go in thinking it’s going to be the best RPG ever. It’s great fun, but it’s aged, don’t forget that. Don’t be like me. XD But still, you really should play it…like now.

  11. Jacob says:

    Musical Misfits – that name just doesn’t quite fit. I was expecting something along the lines of “songs that don’t quite match the game theme” not “amazing songs lost in time” 😛

  12. First off, yes you said my name perfectly.

    Secondly although I agree that sonic needs a reboot I don’t think black night is an example of why. If anything sonic unleashed is the reason. Not because of any fault but because at this point sonic has gone from saving a city(Sonic adventure), to saving the world(Sonic adventure 2), to saving the future(Sonic the hedgehog (ps3/360)), then finally to reuniting the world after it has been destroyed(Unleashed). How can there be any conflict that would even pose a threat? I don’t think the story book games are really any problem since sonic is kinda a totally different person in those games (Which gives us currently 3 totally different sonics if you count the main comics, 4 if you count the sonic x comics.)

  13. The poster fomally known as the BulimicKoala says:

    No the penny arcade in 2pstart is coming out ( a game they want to make) NO!! Also last weeks comic proves that Comics in which Tim Dies= Awesome ….also More D3vin.

  14. RedVinnie says:

    yes, i agree, that the 1st two paper marios need to be played by all. i will be renting sonic and the black knight, because well i have played all of the the sonic games thus far and beaten them except for sonic ’06. i dont have a 360, but i would have stayed away from that debaucle

  15. roadjcat says:

    yes, i agree, that the 1st two paper marios need to be played by all.

    So does the third. 😉

  16. roadjcat says:

    Also, I just kinda thought about this, but Ray, have you ever thought of doing video reviews? I think those would be pretty awesome, though that would probably take up a lot of time.

  17. D3vin says:

    No the penny arcade in 2pstart is coming out ( a game they want to make) NO!! Also last weeks comic proves that Comics in which Tim Dies= Awesome ….also More D3vin.

    More me? Gee, thanks hard to pronounce symbol so I will just say The Poster Formally known as Bulimic Koala 😉 I am working on a new comic, but m progress is slower since I use different means of doing it.

    Gotta say I was shocked. I could have sworn you guys would have taken the Black Doom to Nintendo’s doorstep when they claimed 99% of the industry growth is theirs….

  19. Edfaminc says:

    I come from the grave to tell you, MY black doom is Star Wars Battle Front III. I love the series, I hope someone picks it up! Great comic guys one of my favorites!

    Nice display picture, i have that as my wallpaper.

    I come from the grave to tell you

    Hmm…never mind. XD

  23. Plural? XD Like anyone does that but me. I assume that was the point of the comment though…

    I’ve done one once or twice. Ok, well, maybe once actual but a couple other times in my head where there wasn’t much point in actually commenting because other people had similar thoughts.

    And on that note…

    A – K.K. Slider ftw! For a second I almost thought it was Saturday night! ‘k maybe not…

    B – Yeah, kinda missed having a third person. I was starting to expect Eddie to show up in the comic at some point. I mean, you did mention something about expanding your cast of characters at some point, right?

    C – If it helps, I’m also 27 so if you think it’s funny, chances are at least I will too. Forget about everyone else ;]

    D – Commenting incentives, eh? hmm…. dying of curiosity now.

  24. roadjcat says:

    I’ve done one once or twice.

    Yeah…try 16. And that’s just the ones in my notebook, not to mention when I used post its. XD

    D – Commenting incentives, eh? hmm…. dying of curiosity now.

    Same here…like seriously…that’ bugging me now..WHY DID YOU EDIT IT OUT!? XD

  25. CKcheeseboy says:

    I’ve done one once or twice.

    Yeah…try 16. And that’s just the ones in my notebook, not to mention when I used post its. XD

    Why not just use Notepad or something? Or do you listen to the podcast on an iPod away from your computer?

  27. Kvb says:

    Right here,

    Oh, well, okay. I guess I’ll-

    right now.

    Sir yes sir!

    I’d like to suggest the theme of ISO 9000, from Earthworm Jim 2’s PC version. (Apparently it also plays for a level called Lorenzen’s Soil, but the PC version doesn’t have that one…)
    Hope you guys don’t have a time limit for your songs, though. Because this theme is 5:44, with no loops.

    Just make it clear, and throw me a link of the actual game’s recording if possible.

    Hmmm… This is why I wasn’t sure about how to request something. Doesn’t posting a link to the song beforehand kind of ruin the magic?

  29. Tacos says:

    On IGN’s site, where they have the link to the new Black Knight trailer, the subtitle is “Better than Unleashed?” I bet that will get the next Black Doom Award.

  30. Betta splenden says:

    Ray, I’ve given it some time, but you appearently haven’t noticed the Sonic CG movie. Night of the Werehog? Was in Nintendo Power? Has Chip in it? I really thought this would have been the podcast that you’d make it your Black Doom Award. Nice podcast though.

    Hi, Betta splenden. Yes, I had seen Night of the Werehog in November or December, I believe. It was a cool little short with impressive visuals. I just felt like it was a total waste of talents. Why not take all that effort and put it into a 10-min long CG short Sonic fans would actually care about? Or add a few more amazing cutscenes to Unleashed. They have the talent for these things – they just need to know where to put it.

  32. billtodamax says:

    I’ve watched the first 12 or so podcasts, and I’d like to actually see some of the comments used for the suggestion box without trawling through hundreds of pages of blog to find them. Is there anyway you could get a link to those comments and put them under the podcast in the podcast section?
