In case you didn’t hear, The Famicast crossed the twenty-five episode threshold, and to celebrate, we had a live show on June 29/30 (depending on your location)! If you couldn’t tune in to the episode last week, don’t fret! Through the magic of the internet and technology, the Famicrew has the whole show ready for you this week!

The show kicks off normally, with the crew talking about the latest games they have been playing. Danny regales us with tales of a new Japanese side-scroller, Sayonara Umihara Kawase, and tells us how this “rubber ring” action game frustrates and entertains at the same time. Ty lets us know about all of the fighting games, per usual. Not only that, but Minoru’s constant, undying love for From Software has led Ty to get into the world of Dark Souls!

Minoru takes us all by surprise, moving away from From Software titles to an unexpected choice in Style Savvy: Trendsetters for the 3DS! Mino now has more of an eye than ever for fashion and lets us all know how playing this game can turn you into a style king...or queen...or both! Daan rounds off New Business with a New Super Luigi U and the F1 game for Wii U that you never even knew existed, F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition! Hey, the game could even be coming to a region near you...if you live in Europe...(sorry, North America!).

With the live show, one element that the crew really wanted to throw into the mix was direct interaction with you, the listener. Through the chat and live chat calls, you guys helped make Famicast 25 a success! Thank you so much for your support! On top of your awesome interaction, the fellas also had a segment called Nintendo Retro CM (Commercial) Showcase, which took a look at some old school Japanese Nintendo commercials. Be sure to check out the links below to watch the videos! For all of this and a lot, lot more, you won’t want to miss Famicast 25 - LIVE FROM JAPAN (podcast edition)!

I just need to state that it feels so weird to hear your own voice on the internet... o.O
