Battling an intensely hot, humid Tokyo summer, the Famicrew returns for more great Japan chat!
New business takes up a huge section of the show with a group discussion about New Super Mario Bros 2, the original NSMB and even NSMB Wii. Which version comes out on top? This of course leads to a debate about digital releases, the pricing and future of download games in Japan.
Minoru goes old school with the GameBoy game, Star Fox Zero. OK, that's not what it's called, but if you're a Nintendo fan you should be able to work out what that is!
Daan, meanwhile, comes back from his third go at Wii U at Gamescom. At this point I think he's played it more than Reggie has!
The news segment has your usual mix of crazy and cool. Note that this was recorded BEFORE the World Ends with You announcement, although you may be surprised at how accurate we were anyway!
Life in Japan tackles the long held notion that Japanese players don't play (or don't like) Western games. Is it true? We gather comments from a range of Japanese gamers, including our very own, and pose that very question. Plus, is voice chat really the "Bane" of Japanese gamers existence? Let the games (discussion) begin!
In the letters segment, listen as Danny gets 10 years of suppressed memories off his chest, as to why he prefers gaming on the go in Japan compared to back in the US of A!
Get your ice-packs ready, cos this episode is HOT!
