Emanuel was having some latency issues this week, so in a few isolated areas the sound quality degrades, or the pitch changes - It goes away quickly for the most part though.

This is why we keep telling Emanuel to get callburner, so feel free to complain in his general direction.

Very good job on this interview. NeoTokyo does indeed rule and will be one of those games people play for years to come.
