The story definitely gets better. The commentary gets TONS better after the first episode. In the first 1 I'm basically just reading it. In 2, 3, and 4 I'm actually just doing commentary, 5, 6, and 7 is co-commentary with my friend Vanja, 8 is 4 way commentary with me, and my friends Vanja, Travis and Juan, and Episode 9 is the same, but we switched Juan for my friend Victoria.
There's some pretty foul humor in episodes 5-9, but I've gotten some great feedback on them. Even from people I work with that don't play video games.
No, the hardest thing about the 3-heart was the psychological aspect of only having three hearts. And Ganondorf was kind of a pain in the ass. RE4 is my 4th favorite game. I saved up to buy a Chicago Typewriter and that was fun, although my accuracy rate just tanked after I got it.
Thinking back, I beat Wind Waker with the minimum number of heart containers you get in-game. So I only had ones from dungeons. I can't imagine a 3-heart would be much harder. Resident Evil 4 is one of my favorite games of all time.
And thanks! Always glad we're able to entertain people. We have more things planned for the future!
