Maybe ben should be more careful. He's made like 2 of every one of em, why not make a 2nd n64p? And, I think he should componetize everthing. Like make an insertable pre extended slot.

Ben is plenty careful....the N64s are just prone to breaking. Anyone who's built one can testify to that ;)....*looks around basement at the 7 or so scattered N64 motherboards* :P. I think some of them may still be good, though...salvage from old N64 portables :lol:.
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

That was answered in the last listener mailbag one. Basically, he gets his money doing stuff like all this.

Ben: If you could have any of your creations mass produced, which would it be, besides 1 handed controllers (which should all be made en mass anyway, along with foot controllers imo).

Ben: I dig the soldering game idea, I wish it could happen. Given any thought to trying to pitch it to a developer?

Both: Favorite movie based on rewatchability?

Both: Anyway you could do a standard 1 hr podcast, and release a second optional extended version at all around 2 hours or more. I listen to it when I work on my comic over the weekend along with any Warpath I can get my hands on.


Love the podcasts and movies,

Yes, N64 motherboards will fry if you look at them wrong. I think I blew at least 2 while building the N64p.

Siege, good questions, but could you edit in and BOLD them? It'll make it easier when I pull them off on Sunday to make the list, thanks!

Why do you exagerate Mario party?
In every game, they add new Mini-Games, maps, and features.
So my question is, what is wrong with that, its fun, a great party game, and you don't have to by every version.

<b>Ben: If you could change any decision made by any game company in the 80s, what would it be and why?</b> I'd probably have Atari spend more time on the ET game, or at least convince Spielberg to let them pay him less. (According to Wikipedia Atari more than paid for the movie's production.) That might have kept them afloat a while longer, but ultimately Jack Tramiel would kill them off because of their huge focus on the home computer market. (lol jackintosh)<b>

Jones: What do you think of all the remakes and sequels that are flooding the movie market? </b> Seems like Disney has finally run out of ideas... I mean they're making sequels to 50 year old movies!<b>

Both of you: Which system do you think won last generation? (PS2/Xbox/GCN/Dreamcast) Ok I'm kidding about that last one... : P)</b> I think it's a toss-up between the Xbox and the PS2. Sorry, Gamecube fans, but I don't think the GC sold as well.

Ben, or Jones, I guess: What happened to directing a video game movie for a buck? I would love to see you/you guys make one.

Port Washington was awesome, by the way.

Silent Hill the game rocked, but the movie sucked. You should try for that one!

Ben: What with the no update to the Hell Raiser cartridge!? Where you working on something else? Is Hell Raiser not good enough for you!?

To Ben or Jones: Are you currently working on any more independant films, and/or do you plan on making any more soon?
I'd imagine right now you wish you were a cuttlefish...

Both: What kind of music do you listen to?

Ben: Do you think you'll ever play BF2 again?

Both: Do either of you play any instruments?

Ben: How many licks does it take to get to the center of an Atari?

I know that you know.

Ah yes, these are the kind of off-topic questions we crave!

PS: To pre-answer a possible one, Jones and I both are very anti-MySpace and will be on there "over our dead bodies"
