Big thanks to these guys for coming on the podcast.

From GGPO is a networking library that game developers can use to add networked gameplay support to arcade style games. GGPO's latency hiding techniques give each player a gameplay experience that is nearly indistinguishable from playing with their friends locally, even against players around the world.

A great, great podcast.
So many interesting things...
My favourite part is how they work to achieve balance.
They're very pro at it...And the explanation is way better than the one before.

And when they explain, on what they've been researching to make a better online mode for TTT2...I feel optimistic for the online feature in TTT2....

Wish the podcast had been longer, like 90 mins long.. :D
Anyways thank you ATP, Harada-san, Murray-san, Odashima-san.

By the way, you forgot to ask them to call someone a bitch Aris :{D

Awesome awesome interview otherwise. That Shinjuku Heihachi story was kinda priceless coming from a man his stature.

Excellent podcast, Aris. Definitely keep both eyes on Daishi, and point him in the right direction whenever possible. Soul Calibur 2 was the bomb, and want SC to return to it's glory days as much as you.

Great Potcast :)

Actually I have a favor, seems like there was a part where Harada-san was talking to Murry and translated later(obvious)
but I want to know if u have original recording, are u able release it? Because I wanted to share this information with other community such as TC but based on my knowledge, people in TC knows more Japanese than English and this is lots of translation, even if i summarize to minimum.

Great episode like everyone else is saying. Just posting to respond to another comment on here, L_Z_N's in particular. As much as I love these podcasts (been listening to everyone one, since myk old ones) I like the current length that they have. I know I could pay attention if it was long because the podcast is funny, informative and honest about shit but I just feel if it was too long I'd enjoy it less.

Damn. Just realized he was talking about this particular podcast and not the podcast series in general. oops.

no more for me.

Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 6:34 PM | Unregistered CommenterNemesisKanden

@ZZidu, Thanks for the comment. I would need to edit it again because there are parts of our conversation that they probably don't want released. I'm going to be busy this weekend but I'll try to do it early next week.

don't encourage the makers of tekken to implement links in order to do tag combos. they are stupid and link heavy characters play horrible online in SSFIV.

Great Podcast Aris! Very informative stuff. Maybe for Tag 2 there can be an online practice mode. So you and another person can share strats etc. Just a random idea, because I can't count how many people ask me to show them what I just did online. Also if were in a full room people start to bail out. I hope there are default rooms for online play in Tag 2 I hate it when people kick you and don't use private slots. Hope the next SC is good. Thanks again Aris! Thanks Harada, Murray, and Odashima for agreeing to the interview.

about 35:24 the question was about a possibilities that all the systems in T6 to be in TTT2, and Murry says, they got rit of the bound system(?) and after that but still they liked the system so they are keeping it in someway? is that what ther're saying?

help me out here pls
