  1. This episode was interesting to listen to, there’s a lot of information on SMC2 and the back story was interesting as well. (I love hearing about how things come to fruition ).

    Thanks for the positive feedback on the snes blaster master arrangement, I was very worried about it’s reception. I’m also curious to know what I did to be hated by Larry so much! Heh!
