Welcome to episode 146 of Connectivity! We have two segments this week.

Kicking the show off, Alex, Danny and Josh discuss a wide array of new and old games they've been playing. The guys talk Mario Party, NBA 2K14, Tetris, Final Fantasy VI and P.T. Also, the gang gasps in horror when Alex announces he just watched Star Wars for the first time. Shocking, I know.

After that, Neal and Zach return to announce last week's contest winners and talk about the Game of the Week, Kid Icarus Uprising. Neal and Zach go over what makes this somewhat divisive game memorable and worth playing. Next week, the Game of the Week will be Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, and we're doing another contest. To win a code for Siesta Fiesta (North America only), e-mail us and tell us: who would be the coolest unlockable character in a new THPS game, and what would his/her special move be? Get your entries in by August 22!

Be sure to click here to send us your listener mail for the next mail segment and your contest entries. We'll see you next week!

I can tell you right now that the name of the episode alone needs to be corrected because that game is an abomination and is nothing but a piece of shit sculpted to form the words 'Mario Party 9'

I loved Mario Party 9. :(

FFVI came before Chrono Trigger, and Star Wars takes a lot from Japan and biblical themes.

FFVI has an awesome story, and Kefka is one of the cruelest villains ever, or at least for that period.

Sometimes I wonder what planet does Alex comes from...never played FFVI?, never seen Star Wars original trilogy?...was he born on the Himalayas? :p

I just wish it could be available on the WiiU VC.

I come from the far off land of 1994.

I don't see why one has to apologize for noting that their moms or girlfriends are better at Tetris than them. You need to celebrate diversity not shun it. "Vive' la difference" and all.

Oh man, and words truly can't describe how terrible durian smells. Tastes not much better in my experience (like a white, raw ground meat), so i am at loss why it's sought out so much.

People who can't deal with controls in Kid Icarus Uprising need to "git gud". If you can't deal with it, it's because you're bad, it's that simple.

I need to resume my 9.0 playthrough of Kid Icarus... I think i stopped at 8... I almost completed wall of achievements. Still have two other walls of achievements ahead.

Such a great game. The crowd who kept demanding for a new Nintendo game with a great story, full voice-acting, great third person shooting gameplay AND online multiplayer (basically all modern AAA checkboxes checked out PLUS all) lost all moral right to complain the day this game came out.

Noting that "everyone can enjoy or play anything but this is what I noticed" is just a bit of (truthful) armor in case someone wants to suggest I said something negative about who can and cannot be a video games fan or that I was unfairly representing or stereotyping a gender. This shit can be a minefield sometimes, so I went out of my way to declare my statement a personal observation.
