    Seemed to be a bit of an issue with the sound. Ah, well. Still damn good stuff.

    I do want to fight as a giant salmon and defeat an opponent by drowning them in caviar.

    So when will we see Female Paul in a LRR video?

    Stardock doing a Star Control game?

    Not sure if want. Well, I guess they're a better fit than any other developer I can think of (that still exists). Can you imagine if it went to Paradox? Ulgh.

    I want Checkpoint to mock the giant salmon!

    And I want DLC costumes for the giant salmon!

    Giant trout! Giant bass! Giant cod (with or without blops!)

    I want Giant Salmon Cosplay!

    Also, when do you suppose the release date for the Master System Plants vs. Zombies will be? This de-development cycle must me dizzying for his marketing team...

    Since my reverence for Star Control is based on the mechanics, I'd like to see Team Meat do a version of it.

    "Two lapel mikes", eh? Well, I could still understand yeh, but I think the boom is a lot clearer. No one available for the job this week?

    I'd rather see toys for bob spend some of their fat stacks of skylanders cash making a spiritual successor, but whatever. If it sucks, I'll just go back to replaying sc2 every couple of years.

    Remember, the giant salmon should have a 'female' version with boobs *big ones* and bikini DLC.

    After all, what are fighting games without them?

    ;)

    I do rate Star Control II as one of my top 10 games of all time. I'd love to see a new one. I just hope it stick to its roots. They don't need to radically modernize the game. I've already played that, and it was called Mass Effect.

    I accidentally turned on Youtube's automatic captions for this video; I thought some people might enjoy this:

    Yeah, a whole lot of the aliens in Star Control II are fun ideas that work until they have to actually speak. What, do Zoq, Fot, and Pik sound like some kind of space-Cockney frungy hooligans? And what does an almost-all-knowing sentient thumb-puppet sound like?

    Also, how do you record that insane Ur-Quan encounter music for real? I'm guessing it involves waterboarding Skrillex and Marilyn Manson while recording with an underwater microphone, then inputting the raw audio to a sentient computer that's just been told there's no silicon heaven, to be mashed up with the soundtrack of Upstream Color.

    And that sounds kind of expensive.

    Hey - there have been some comments on the sound. Can everyone tell me what exactly what their issues are? I want to try and fix them before we film the next episode.

    The stuff where you and Graham are sitting at the desk (so not the voiceovers at the beginning and end) sound very quiet and hollow, almost like the microphone is too far away from you.

    How could the giant salmon NOT have won? I would've voted for it just to see how they'd make it work.

    The new microphones aren't picking up the bass as much as the boom did.
    Not sure exactly how you could fix it and the only ideas I have just make editing a longer process (and noone is cruel enough to do that to you).
    Wait, an idea where you can pass on the work to others. A new design of the desk where you can place the boom mike on the desk and behind a bit of set dressing.
    It all depends on why you changed to the new microphones in the first place. I'm assuming it was to only need to coordinate 2 people instead of three.

    Why did you use a Tekken screenshot with DarkSydePhil in it? LRR is too good to be letting him anywhere near these videos, even if just a username in a screenshot.

    I wish someone would demake FF7-13' they were better when they weren't putting all the budget into graphics & voice acting.
