Honestly, we should just call this episode, "The Jonathan Holmes Show" because that's really what it is. Listening to Holmes' passion for all things Capcom pretty much struck me dumb as he consistently managed to ask every question I could think of before I'd even really thought about it. It's a good interview and will no doubt sate much of the lust for everyone's favorite Wii fan that we've been hearing about.
Lots of really great stuff in here. Marvel at how Capcom managed to go through all sorts of licensing issues to bring you a new fighting game (see what I did there?). And listen as bonus guest Topher Cantler repeatedly makes the case for Rival Schools.
The episode is available for your downloading right now. Just click. Full show notes reside after the break.
