We weren’t going to have a show this week, but then Austin played Splatoon and he really wanted to talk about it so we decided to have a show. Additionally, Brian did a site survey and asked many of you about the podcast, so we decided to do a little navel gazing and read some of what you guys had to say, both good and bad. And weird. The nice image you see above was found on Neogaf!

Here’s a Podcast – Episode 117! (Tetris)

Sorry we’re a day late with this one. Everyone is still in Minneapolis for this week’s show, and we decide to do something we haven’t done in a while: Podcasting without a net. So there’s not much of a script, we go off on tangents, and we just try to enjoy life and be good boys and girls. Funnily, we ended up talking about some game industry stuff and other gaming-related topics that we don’t generally tackle, so that’s a point for being unscripted I guess. Enjoy the non-conformity!

Shenanigans

1) Opening Nonsense
2) Game of the Week – Tetris!
3) Laura went to China and Austin has a headache.

What we played

4) Laura got a New 3DS!

Shenanigans Redux

5) Can Nintendo really continue with backwards compatibility?
6) Bye Bye Konami

What we played again

7) Professor Laura vs. Phoenix Wright
8) Why didn’t anyone tell me about Mass Effect’s writing though? (Austin beat Mass Effect)
9) Wario Ware touched Jack on Wii U.

Shenanigans yet again

10) Starcraft 64 music break

Listener Mail

11) Garbage Questions
12) What game companies would we like to shadow?
13) What will Nintendo’s future success look like? Can they return to the top?

Shenanigans Finale

14) The end.

Here’s a Podcast – Episode 116! (Super Mario Land)

Once upon a time I mentioned how Comcast played a role in canceling one of our podcasts because they made Laura’s internet go away. This week, another American corporation has disrupted our regular flow of feces-like podcasting content to you, but thankfully Xcel Energy’s mishandling of my electrical power only succeeding in delaying the podcast rather than outright canceling it. It’s an exciting show though, because Laura is back in Minneapolis so we’ve recorded our first in-person show since episode 103! Here are today’s chapters:

Shenanigans

1) Opening
2) Picture of the Day
3) Game of the Week: Super Mario Land!

What we played

4) Laura’s a’rumblin’. (Pokémon Rumble World)
5) Story of Sadness. (Story of Seasons)
6) Story of Seasons Spoilers Skip-Mark
7) Shepard is not a smart man. (Mass Effect)
8) ProPay develops new Streetpass games for Laura.
9) Donkey Kong Country 2 vs. Super Mario World, a retrospective featurette.

Shenanigans Redux

10) Freetures (the only free part of the podcast)
11) Donkey Kong Country 3 musical interlude

Listener Mail

12) Mario & Luigi is good?
13) New 3DS transfer process and other woes.
14) Are cinematic games taking over? Will they always suck so bad?
15) Comedian corner.

Shenanigans Finale

16) Super Mario Land Quiz
17) Ending sequence and staff roll.

Here’s a Podcast – Episode 115! (Zoda’s Revenge: Star Tropics II)

What an episode have we got for you here today on this episode of the show on our website. If you like Donkey Kong Country 3 you should skip listener mail because Jack gets incredibly critical of it, going so far as to call it a game Rare must have developed during their bathroom breaks. Still, Austin has impressions of Affordable Space Adventures, so that should make up for it. Unless he’s right.

I suspect he is. Here are today’s chapters:

Shenanigans

1) Picture of the Day.
2) Game of the Week: Zoda’s Revenge: Star Tropics 2!

What we played

3) Austin needs no qualifications for space adventures. (Affordable Space Adventures)
4) Jack dedicated himself to tears. (MOTHER 3)
5) Austin walks through the valley of the shadow of death (Super Ghouls n Ghosts wrap-up)

Shenanigans Redux

6) Freetures (Because they’re free)
7) Mighty Switch Force music break

Listener Mail

8) Donkey Kong Country 3 is Rare’s “bathroom break” game, according to Jack.
9) Would we be down for more clay?
10) Project H.A.M.M.E.R., Halo DS, and more: Our favorite cancelled games.
11) Why is Art Academy for Wii U taking so long?
12) Diarrhea-like random questions.

Shenanigans Finale

13) Zoda’s Revenge QUIZ QUIZ
14) Ending fanfare

Here’s a Podcast – Episode 110! (Time Twist: Rekishi no Katasumi de…)

Podcast Crew: Austin (Twitter), Jack (Twitter), Laura (Twitter)

Welcome to episode 106 I mean episode 110. How are you? I’m okay. I hope you’re okay too. Here’s an overview of what we’ll be talking about on this episode:

Segment 1, Intro: The game for this week’s Game of the Week is a very, very weird and probably-considered-offensive Famicom Disk System title called Time Twist! It never came out in the west though so I guess everything is okay.

Segment 2, What We Played: Austin has finally beaten MOTHER 3, and he has so much to say about it! Unfortunately he doesn’t want to spoil anything, so it ends up just being a lot of interesting and vague praise. Laura is continuing through Majora’s Mask 3D, but she’s trying to slow it down this week. Finally, Jack somehow ended up with Brain Age Express: Sudoku, which he says is a bit of a stink.

Segment 3, Book Club: The book club this week comes with a new focus: The bosses of A Link to the Past, what we can learn from them, and how they relate to bosses in more recent Zelda games. We end up talking a lot about Zelda bosses in general and what we like and dislike about them.

Segment 4, Listener Mail: Listener mail ended up being all Zelda topics this week! We address some concerns people have about Majora’s Mask 3D’s “improvements”, how Zelda Wii U could take some cues from the Oracle games to improve its overworld, and more!

Welcome to episode 106 I mean episode 109. How are you? I’m okay. I hope you’re okay too. Here’s an overview of what we’ll be talking about on this episode:

Segment 1, Intro: Star Tropics makes its first appearance on this podcast, and we discuss some cool tidbits about its development and how it’s similar to Metal Gear Solid in a certain respect.

Segment 2, What We Played: Austin gives his impressions of the New 3DS XL, Laura waxes poetic and tells a story from her time with Majora’s Mask 3D, and Jack updates us on chemistry, computer science, and other collegiate affairs.

Segment 3, Book Club: Our next week of the A Link to the Past book club creates a rift that eventually morphs into a learning experience for everyone involved! Jack likes the Dark Palace and dislikes the Swamp Palace, but Laura and Austin think the opposite! Some interesting notes about Zelda temple design in this segment.

Segment 4, Listener Mail: Listener mails brings about a particularly interesting topic this week: Are 2D Zelda games really just gimped versions of 3D Zelda games? Are they just a stopgap between the “real” Zelda games? We don’t go quite as in-depth as I’d like to someday, but it’s a fascinating idea.
