One away from the tenth episode, which is the one on which I said I’d start putting these on iTunes like you’ve all asked me to. I haven’t gotten any closer to figuring out how to manage that, but I’ve certainly gotten quicker at putting these together! Here’s the rundown for this week’s episode:

At one point during the podcast, Jack said (in reference to New Super Mario Bros. Wii) that he “could have just found” a secret I was talking about, but he just didn’t WANT to. I challenged him to try finding it after the show and he agreed to give it a shot.

He was unable to locate it.

Like I said, two podcasts this week for Wii U stuff. This episode deals with more or less the reactions to the Wii U from outside sources. I get to inform Jack and Laura about everything, get a little angry about IGN comments (like the feature I wrote), and even have a moment of catharsis about whether or not the Wii U is worth the price! Check it all out and stuff.

We’re doing two podcasts this week I think, primarily because I really wanted to talk about all the awesome Wii U news! This week it’s just me, Jack, and Laura, and we discuss everything Wii U. Other feature(s) coming from me tonight, which is part of the reason I’m posting this up earlier than normal.

Discussion Topics: Is the Wii U worth $350? Should we be excited about New Super Mario Bros. U?
List for this Episode: “Three Wii U Games We Would/Will Get at Launch”

If you want to chime in on any of the subjects or give us your three games for the list, definitely comment below! We’ll be hanging around and talking to everybody like always.

I am so tired of wrestling with blogger and tumblr and feedburner and iTunes and archive and all these stupid websites to try and make the feed subscribe-able. I’ll get it going later but I’ve been at it for nearly ten hours and nothing seems to function properly, so for now you just have to download it the old-fashioned way. Apologies to you guys who asked for a feed to subscribe to! Maybe next week?

News this week: Zelda Wii U rumors (lies), cheap iOS games, Ace Attorney 5 news, and a few other short topics.

“Guess the game” for this week: Here’s the link to the image if you want to play along.

Top ten list this week: Top Ten Gamecube games.

Enjoy, and if anyone knows how to get a podcast feed going and make it on iTunes and all that jazz, please let me know!

So here’s another one! This time actually on time, and I have to admit: Despite it starting really slowly, the discussion we had at the end about how old various Nintendo characters are was definitely my favorite discussion we’ve had so far!

If you want to join in on the fun, listen to the podcast and then decide for yourself: How old are all of the following Nintendo characters?

Mario, Toad, Peach, Wario, Waluigi, Grampa Toad, Windwaker Link, Tetra, Gramma Link, Malo, Spirit Track’s Link, Happy Mask Salesman, Fox, Falco, Peppy, Slippy, Krystal, Samus, Ash’s Mom, Pit, Tom Nook, Captain Olimar, Captain Falcon, Snake from MGS4, Kirby, Dr. Kawashima

In the third episode (fifth if you count the one I didn’t put up and the one I accidentally didn’t record!) of ‘Here’s a Podcast’, the people sitting around the iPad talk about New Super Mario Bros 2’s bad 3D, the Miiverse’s potential for success (or failure), potential new Smash Bros.¬†characters, and much more! It’s four people this week instead of three.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This weeks’ Top Ten List: Five characters we’d eliminate from Smash Bros. and five characters we’d add in. Hit the break for each of our lists, and listen to the full podcast for the complete discussion among a lot of nonsense.


This week I think we had a very nice discussion about the Wii U and the concern that it will be filled with ports of PS360 games! Additionally we wrap things up discussion IGN’s list of top ten 3DS games so far. Check it out here:

Also, if you’re wondering why I haven’t put this podcast on iTunes, it’s because I’m a firm believer in the concept that the first ten of anything you make (such as this podcast) are destined to be crap. So we’re gonna do ten “test” episodes via archive.org and then I’ll get them subscribe-able on iTunes for you guys after they get good! : D
