In regards to Phantasy Star Portable, what is your outlook of PS-Online 2 for Vita next year? That may very well be the first game I buy with a Vita.

As for EA, even though they're worthless pole smokers and their stock is tanking, it could be a good thing. EA still makes piles of cash every time they pump out their annual cut-and-paste Madden games, and I think they may recover. In stock investing, people say "buy low and sell high." If their stock is low, I would buy it while it's cheap and then sell that shit when the price goes up. Last year it was $26 a share, now it's only $14. Blow $140 now, hopefully sell it all for $260 next year.

I am happy about browser-based Wolfenstein, and look forward to when Doom, Quake, and other ID games to make that jump. Hopefully we will live long enough to see that great stuff become public domain.

LOL... I'm waiting for a redesigned 3DS too before I decide if I want to buy one.

Regarding Poison in Final Fight:

The character was originally going to be female, but during development of the game they changed her to be a "newhalf" which is a Japanese term for a hermaphrodite.

I know you said in the Podcast, "Why would they bother developing such a backstory for such a character?". The reason is that when they were considering releasing the game in the US, they thought that there might be problems because hitting women might be an issue. So they developed the game with Poison as a hermaphrodite. When they released the (arcade) game in the US, I think Poison was changed to a transvestite anyway. Didn't really matter though since the character still looked the same. The SNES version did change the character to a dude though. But every other version of Final Fight I know of, regardless of region, Poison is either a hermaphrodite, transvestite, or transexual. Only in early development of the game Poison was female (and in possibly Final Fight Revenge).

I don't think Capcom has put out any official word on the matter and they can keep retconning the character if they want. I've actually been looking for a link to the development sketch the was show in that History of Poison video that was mentioned, but I couldn't find it in my 15 mins of googling, but every site I visited basically told the same story and I haven't seen any contradiction to it yet.

I am glad that Crow chimed in about the Poison issue, lets see you argue with a man who has played every video game in existence! Also...

Who would you rather do, The Tranny from E.A. or the actual Herman Munster in a wig? Just remember, no one says NO to Herman Munster.

@DeathAdder83 My answer would be Uncle Fester.
