Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Exploding Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"Are you planning on releasing some Fuzzy plushies? Or Conscience Cat plushies?" -Christian

I'd love to! I think Skull Panda plushes would be pretty fun, too. But they're a bit of an intimidating project... plushes have to be manufactured in pretty large numbers, and it's hard to find an outfit that can make them a) well and b) without slave labour.

Still, it's probably worth looking into. Is this something a lot of you would be interested in? Let me know!

"Whatever happened to Mr. Ackerman and Mr. Bunton?" -Edward

Mr. Ackerman retired, and passed X-Per-S Taxi on to Lance. Mr. Bunton expanded Bunton's Books into a chain of stores, and (eventually) left Alexa in charge of the original location. And Mr. Lebowski finally achieved his dream and got that double major in philosophy and interpretive dance.

Reach for the stars!

"Did Mr. Black know that Mr. Sin wasn't a man, but actually a... thing... in a robot body?" -Marvin

Absolutely. He knew about the tower and Fuzzy suits as well. I guess it's hard to keep secrets from your number two man.

That's it for this week! Have a solid weekend, and tune in on Monday for the start of our next story.

Metroid Gaiden

Weirdest e3 announcement so far: a Team Ninja-developed Metroid game.

I really don't know what to make of that yet. Upon hearing the announcement, I had nightmare visions of Samus Aran X-treme Beach Volleyball. But fortunately, what little has been shown so far looks pretty Metroid-esque, and is completely devoid of gargantuan, independently bounding balloon boobs.

(That last link doesn't actually go anywhere. No one needs to see that freakshow.)

Nintendo, I am counting on you to exploit Team Ninja's action game chops while reining in their completely idiotic character design. If you let them turn Samus into a blow-up doll, so help me, I will... uh... write scathing things about you on the internet.

Post traumatic

A new Wii Trauma Center game is finally on the way! The completely ridiculous surgical procedures of Trauma Center: New Blood provided some of the most enjoyable co-op gaming I've ever played, and I'm thrilled to see the series will be gaining so many new medical fields to depict with equally gross inaccuracy. How will we carry out the new duties of diagnostician, E.M.T., orthopedic surgeon, endoscope technician and medical examiner? If it's anything like the rest of the series... probably with jar upon jar of magic green "antibiotic gel".
