This week the podcast crew discusses all of the great news, reminisces about the Wii, and tests their knowledge of top ten lists by trying to guess which games/items topped all eight categories from our send-off to the Wii!



Update: Man I just feel so exhausted tonight! Because of that, I won’t be wrapping up part 3 of the Wii feature thing until tomorrow night. Which is probably for the better because then I can include Patrick! For now, just enjoy this podcast. :]

Turns out that when you do a podcast after writing and coding for seven hours some parts don’t stay quite as on-topic as they should! We still got through the news, but the discussion and list were a little lackluster this week! Next week we should be back to normal.

Is New Super Mario Bros. U going to “New Super Mario Bros.” us?
Twilight Princess Quiz Show Fun Time!

Goodness this was a funny show! I can honestly say I didn’t expect things to turn out the way they did, but hey, sometimes surprise is best served unexpectedly. We got a new mic as well so the audio quality is GREATLY improved… but that also means you can hear Laura eating popcorn way too loudly sometimes! Ah well. Thanks to 5th Cell for those great Scribblenauts hats!

Note: I’m posting this now because I’m leaving to go do Halloween-y things now (yea, on a Sunday– I spent my Saturday doing this podcast for you!). I’ll sticky it overnight and all that good stuff.

Despite this episode being recorded at 1AM, I think it was actually pretty good! Maybe we should do more of them really late at night… We discussed ZombiU (and whether it’s going to “Red Steel” us), do all of the regular segments, and give our top five scariest games that we’ve played!

Here’s the image for “Guess the game” this week.

I’m not writing out the minutes this week because it’s late and I’m tired, but I think you guys will find this episode up to par! We talk news, introduce a new segment (“This week in news… five years ago!”), and then rush through the last three segments because we realize news/what we played took way too long! Good stuff overall.

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.
