475 – Opposites
This is another relatively subtle joke for BitF, and one that requires a little Poke-knowledge. Breeding the Eevee family doesn’t work like this, but it should.
Time for Episode 02 of the podcast! And look at that, it came along with the comic. I still haven’t decided how best to upload these, so for now, enjoy the freebie!
[Act 1] Introduction (00:01)– It’s back, and this time with an altered opening. Could this be the start of the podcast’s “couch gag”? Only time will tell. But probably.
[Act 2] Game Discussion–The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (01:08)– Matthew and Chris chat about what makes this SNES classic so enjoyable even today, including features that are still done better than in modern Zeldas, and what innovations the game brought to the table. Matthew also touches upon what aspects of the game he feels are flawed.
[Act 3] Comic Talk–469-473 & 260 (15:35)– Now extended! Matthew shoots through the past couple weeks of comics and briefly talks about a discarded idea involving Yoshi poop. And a new addition has the guys discuss a classic strip in detail from BitF’s past!
[Act 4] Why Did They Do That? Zelda Tutorials and Over-Explanations (32:48)– Chris has something to get off his chest regarding the 3D Zelda games, and it’s gotta be said before the series spirals even further into its own overblown tutorials. Put up your dukes, Nintendo, because the guys are getting a little grouchy!
[Act 5] Reader Comments: Podcast Feedback (46:00)– A new segment involving you, the readers of BitF! Today, Matthew and Chris reply to the initial feedback from the podcast, as well as what they aim to do with it. Sorta.
[Act 6] Music Break: “A Link to the Past Medley” (48:58)– This section is all about giving you guys a remix straight from Matthew’s (dad’s) keyboard. This time around, in the spirit of the podcast, the Fire Emblem Main Theme.
[Act 7] Closing Comments (52:27)– That’s a wrap! Matthew and Chris are thirsty for more Zelda discussion, even though 30 minutes of this podcast was already out for excessive chattin’. CD-i Zelda sneaks its way into this chat somehow, and everyone starts talking about them snuggling together on the carpet at the end. Let us know what you think of this episode in the podcast discussion thread, and you may be featured in the next one!
[Epilogue] Dreaming of Birdo (56:42)
