    Nice, guys! A lot of tracks that were totally new to me, as well as a lot of new games. And so many good tunes! I would have liked to have heard something from Konami’s Batman Returns for SNES, and Genesis’ Batman, but I totally understand why you made the choices you did, and I can’t say that I think either of those choices trumped anything y’all selected.

    I also liked your answers to “Which four persons in gaming you’d like to talk to”. Trip Hawkins was a good choice. I’d like to talk to Shaun Hollingworth, and ask him how he got samples on the Genesis to sound so damn good.

    Oh, and the Batman skit was hilarious…..although I’d say Mike’s lower register makes him a more prime candidate for a Keaton or Bale-voiced Batman. But I also liked your dialogue about how Batman embraces/embodies both camp and grit. It reminded me of a friend’s impassioned plea that Roger Moore’s Bond was as legit as Connery’s. He was wrong, of course, but you guys may have something going.
