    It’s good to be back. You’ll hear that the Jet Lag has an impact on this weeks show, as it does not have any of the normal features. It was either that or no show this week🙂

    Weekly activity back next week.

    Great show, Major . Loved hear about your experience in Iraq. Also you saved my head from exploding by mentioning this week’s Arcade release. NEVER FORGET IT AGAIN!🙂

    So did you defer from calling yourself “Major” Nelson while there?

    I’m surprised they’re sticking with “Garou” for the XBLA release of Mark of the Wolves, I thought they would rename it “Fatal Fury” like they did with the Dreamcast version. I’ll be surprised if anyone who isn’t a hardcore fighting fan realises it’s a Fatal Fury game.

    Great show Major. It was great to hear about your experiences in Iraq. Sounds like you had a blast (and slept through others).

    @Drunk Ste – Not that many people would recognize it even if it was named Fatal Fury, the series wasn’t popular in the US. All hardcore fighting fans already know what it is and will be picking it up Wednesday and I’m sure all the pictures/ads of the game on Marketplace will feature Terry Bogard prominently, so the rest of the people will catch on from that.

    @TaygetaVendetta – True but the earlier games in the Fatal Fury series were ported to the Mega Drive/Genesis and SNES in the early 90’s during the success of Street Fighter 2. Some gamers actually remember the name but only the SNK fans know what Garou is.

    It probably won’t be out until after summer.😛 Probably in the Autumn or just before Christmas.

    Great show. But I just need to point one thing out. As a frequent flyer and a Londoner, travelling between the different terminals only takes 40 minutes if you decide to drive between them. And that is not advised, especially since there is the Heathrow Express and also the subway, or as we brits like to call it, The Tube.

    You are more likely to lose your luggage in Terminal 5, than spend 40 minutes travelling if you use the dedicated transport options available to you.🙂

    Glad you had a great trip, Major. Welcome back.
