I hope you enjoy this episode of the Bloodstained Community Broadcast. Matt Papa, the PR Manager and Associate Producer at Inti Creates was kind enough to come on the show and talk about Bloodstained, Inti Creates, and life in Japan. He is a really cool guy and it was a pleasure to chat with him.
You can listen to the show on YouTube, Wordpress, iTunes, Stitcher or by the RSS feed. I have been enjoying YouTube Red for listening to audio shows on YouTube and being able to turn off my phone screen or use my phone for other things while shows are playing.
-This is the second podcast episode I've listened to that talked about how KFC for Christmas is a big deal for Japan. I can't remember if the other episode I'm thinking about was from an old MGS4 developer podcast from years ago or Camoflaj Radio. Either way, Ryan Payton was involved.
-The opening talk about Gal Gun makes me feel glad that Liam from the Super Best Friends/Best Friends Zaibatsu finally has something new to play on his PSVita.
-Matt Papa's story about meeting one of his heroes at a convention and getting a job reminded me of how Anthony Burch got his job at Gearbox Software (Mikey Neumann invited him to hang out a PAX con and it turned out the whole thing was actually a stealth job interview).
-You are not alone Matt, I also think the English dub of Shin-Chan is better (this was also the moment that sold me on the promise of Matt Papa being a cool guy). The English dub of Sgt Frog is pretty fun. I actually appreciate how jokes in both shows were changed to make sense for American audiences since all I really wanted was to be entertained.
-Saying someone's nice is a bold statement to make on the internet. I highly doubt Mega Ran is nicer than Brentalfloss or Smooth McGroove.
-Whoa. Kinda cool that Konami responded, but at the same time, I'd have to agree with Mike. The music the podcast needed was within itself all along.
-A lot of truth in the comments about learning languages (or, learning in general). People who are willing to learn have a better time learning.
-IGA works for Arc Play, not IntiCreates. I was not aware of that.
-Huh. The Community Manager will not be an Inti employee. That sounds like a good thing to know.
-Merch talk. (Insert Spaceballs reference here.)
-Speed running! Where the real long-term community for the game is made! (Free advertising, people discover and discuss techniques/routes, events like Games Done Quick can be fun.)
-Member questions and answers, and questions from other communities!
-I can get on with my life now that I know Bloodstained will not have a panel at PAX South. (Joke's on them, it was never really that big of a deal for me! I'm planning on going no matter what! Ha ha ha!)
-The response to "will there be a famous TV actress for Miriam?" was "maybe", and I am choosing to interpret that as "Aubrey Plaza is confirmed to play Miriam."
-The closing talk about Gal Gun makes me feel glad knowing that Woolie and/or Pat will have awkward reactions as they join Liam when he plays it for the Best Friends youtube channel.
-Thanks for another Indivisible plug! I'd love to see that game happen.
In future podcasts can you lower the music, it makes it incredibly hard to listen to the voices when they're almost the same volume as the music.
Thanks for the feedback. It's hard for me to fine tune the levels, but I'm trying. Episode 1 had the music too loud. I felt 2 was perfect. This third episode sounded good to me, but the music was a little overwhelming at times, and my voice was a bit quiet.
I have asked for feedback on this matter before, as Crocodile has made the same suggestion. I wish I got more feedback for this. Maybe I should make a poll.
I really enjoy the music and I think it affects my judgment of the volume levels.
Brainiac: I'm a little surprised at no Chrono Trigger, though everything else is indeed awesome, especially Star Fox 2.

qaantar: I'm sure that's a Square-Enix issue (notice no FF II (IV) or III (VI) either).
Jun 26, 2017 13:33:22 GMT -6
qaantar: Although Secret of Mana is on there.... hrm.
Jun 26, 2017 13:34:25 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: eh? FF3 is on there, and SM RPG too.
Jun 26, 2017 13:38:03 GMT -6
Brainiac: Eyep. I kinda figured it would be one or the other for the Final Fantasies + Secret of Mana, SMRPG, and Chrono Trigger. Admittedly, that would have been about 20% of the games rather than the current 1/7th being Square, but still, it's a decent collection.
Jun 26, 2017 13:46:14 GMT -6
Brainiac: Though I almost wonder if the current company wishes they could redo the logos and a few other things rather than leave them all as is.
Jun 26, 2017 13:46:51 GMT -6
qaantar: Oh sweet, I missed that! Nevermind then.... (:
Jun 26, 2017 13:47:07 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: It's really surprising to me how so many people honestly don't know that FF3 = 6 loool
Jun 26, 2017 14:10:10 GMT -6
Galamoth: Personally, I'm more familiar with the later re-releases of the earlier FF games. FFVIII & FFX were the first games in that franchise I've played & completed.
Jun 26, 2017 14:28:08 GMT -6
Galamoth: Hence why I'd associate "FF3" with the actual FFIII, and not the original NA release of FFVI.
Jun 26, 2017 14:28:45 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: yeah, but I'm sure you know that actual FF3 wasn't a Super Nintendo game.
Jun 26, 2017 14:31:36 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: Maybe some people do think that. It seems almost prevalent that anything pixelated = 8-bit these days. *eye roll* ...it'll actually be nice to finally have something "retro" that is obviously not just NES/that era.
Jun 26, 2017 14:33:13 GMT -6
thrashinuva: it's SNES classic, not Super Famicom classic. "FF3" is FF6
Jun 26, 2017 17:47:22 GMT -6
Galamoth: ^Many more where that silly arcade game came from.
Jun 26, 2017 18:05:58 GMT -6
purifyweirdsoul: I've never seen that game before...looks like Altered Beast meets the X-Men arcade game. lol, when they transform they do the Colossus super, and when they're in beast form they all do Nightcrawler's.

ghaleon: It's a sh ame they didn't put seiken densetsu 3/secret of mana 2 on there
Jun 26, 2017 21:06:51 GMT -6
ghaleon: I find kirby's dream course to be an odd choice. I actually love that game but I don't know anyone else who has even tried it =P
Jun 26, 2017 21:07:41 GMT -6
ghaleon: honestly I wish there were more games like it
Jun 26, 2017 21:07:48 GMT -6
lovelydumpling: Seiken Densetsu 3, I agree about that one
