Bit Transmission episode 4, with guest Ashley Davis

5:00 PM on 03.31.2010 // Conrad Zimmerman

Real quick, I have to talk about that header image. I asked Holmes to see about making the portrait of Ashley Davis seen in the above dialog box. Of course, he's much smarter than I am and thought about actually asking her for it instead. Thirty minutes later, I have it in my inbox. That may not impress some of you, but it floored me.

This week's episode had some trials and tribulations associated with it. Between the PAX weekend and the Passover holiday going on, things were already going to be crazy. So, of course, this is the week where static electricity caused us to lose the entire episode while recording. There's no excuse for us sounding a little bored or tired -- if that's how you think we come off -- but it's at least a reason.

The show is all about Cave Story, really. We chatted a bit about WarioWare DIY and the 3DS, but almost all of this is devoted to Pixel's masterpiece. We hope you enjoy it. Show notes reside below the fold.

I routinely listen to the Dustforce soundtrack every week. Incredible sounds. [youtube][/youtube]

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
