Podcast Discussion / Episode 849: Difficulty Hot Dog
« on: November 19, 2023, 01:31:24 PM »

I'd love to tell you why I wrote that title down, but I don't remember.

So, a fine "Difficulty Hot Dog" to you too as well.

Another week, another episode where I have no idea what the title means.

This week, James has an ill-fated Donkey Kong Quiz and wraps-up Dave the Diver. Jon is back into Monster Hunter World, but he's also gotten into Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1. and he will one day finish Super Mario Bros. Wonder. He then takes us deep into nothing but sidetracks with Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration. Guillaume is talking Dr. Mario games that may or may not exist and cracks out the Ultimate Unauthorized Nintendo Game Strategies. Greg's playing dubious GB game Castlevania Legends and the final wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC.

Email this week: themes in video game music. Send 'em here.

It's time for our next RetroActive: The 7th Guest, from way back in 1993. Comments in the forums and discords.

(links will be here shortly)

Get the comments in in the next two weeks, we're going to record this one pretty quick. The game is short so this is very doable.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 848: Teach the Kangaroo Kontroversy
« on: November 12, 2023, 03:00:00 PM »

Kangaroos are just too complex to have happened naturally, therefore Australia must not exist.

Not a lot to say this week. We reviewed your submissions for our next RetroActive. As a reminder, we had two rules.

  1. It must be a retro game available on Switch
  2. It must be affordable (~$20 cap)

I eliminated over 10 just because you people couldn't follow TWO RULES. This was the most expansive submission criteria ever and we still had nearly a quarter of submissions get removed.

Regardless, this week we review the 27 surviving submissions and debate our way to our next RetroActive title. No hints in the article this week, but next week I'll have all the talkback threads and Discord chats ready to go.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 846: The Release Calendar
« on: October 29, 2023, 05:14:02 PM »

Oh hey, Mario is out.

James' audio had some issues this week.

It was Jon's fault.

Going to keep the article short this week, because you people asking about the feed - despite me calling it out in a well-crafted article - made me insane. It's fixed by the way, so be sure to enjoy last week's episode too!

But, this week Greg is out watching the Bills. The remaining crew talks about Super Mario Bros. Wonder, which James has already cleared and the others are just starting. So, really, James talks about Super Mario Bros. Wonder. With an echo. And tinny audio. And just a disaster of audio quality.

Email this week is a single question: what Nintendo games do "story" well?

Send us your echoed questions here.


I'm tired of all these keyboard perverts.

As I write this, I'm listening to Episode 845. I'm just over an hour in and Jon is trying to keep himself from spending $4000 on 8BitDo products. In this, I've encountered the phrase "keyboard S&M." As alternate titles go, this one might go over the still-uncharted John/Neal Line where I will definitely get an email.

This is New Business in Episode 845. It isn't the start; I've already heard Greg give some introductory thoughts on Super Mario Bros. Wonder - which had just come out hours earlier - and closing thoughts on the King's League Grand Prix of F-Zero 99. I, myself, then took the show through an eShop minecart ride and compared expectations and reality of "the newest Forza" with Jon Lindemann. Speaking of, before he doomed himself into spending an entire year's pay on Famicom-colored desktop accessories, Jon talked about getting spooky on his Steam Deck with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

I've not got to hear Gui's New Business yet, because I have not reached it. I started the show on a bike ride. However, that ride wasn't long enough to hear the entire show; it's starting to get a bit chilly for such rides.

Normally, I'd look at the podcast listing in my podcast app of choice, but alas the NWR RSS Feed is broken again. It is a work in progress, but until it is corrected that means Episode 845 is a "Nintendo World Report dot com exclusive podcast."

I also recall us talking about action movies again. I assume we get here via Gui's New Business. I was not aware Time Cop had a sequel and I mix up the Carradine actors. I apologize to the Carradine family.

My notes indicate that Gui, who's New Business I reached as I typed this sentence, has completed Chained Echoes - which he ultimately likes a lot - and Asura's Wrath - which remains a scam over a decade later. My notes also indicate he played Astebreed, which is as anime as anime gets, assuming you can consume the plot, and leads us into a breakdown of the surprising contents of IREM Collection Volume 3.

I didn't know there was a Volume 1.

Despite the fact we didn't have any this week, please send us emails.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 844: Why Are We Talking About Horace?
« on: October 15, 2023, 11:57:12 AM »

Not that Horace. Or that one.

This week, Gui has Dogurai - it's "samurai" but a dog. He also returned to the one-man JRPG Chained Echoes.

Jon has the newest Forza Motorsport, which is the eighth Forza Motorsport. The sequel to Forza Motorsport 7, it's obvously called "Forza Motorsport." We also get distracted for nearly half an hour talking about 80s and 90s movies.

Good movies? Of course not.

Greg has impressions of the full version of Patrick's Parabox as well as an update on F-Zero 99.

After a break, we tackle an impossible-sounding three emails: Has Doug Bowser seen the bad Nintendo cartoons, what game design sins are inexcusable, and pining for Bravely Third or Bravely Default 3...or Bravely Second 2...I guess. You can ask us what else is on Dougie's playlist here.


It's about chickens. And the eShop.

It's been a long week at RFNHQ. James is on the edit and the article, and something had to give: welcome to a low-effort podcast article.

New Business: Greg is spooky seasoned with Aria of Sorrow from Castlevania Advance Collection and Kirby Star Allies. Kirby is the most spooky. Jon went to Super Nintendo World, and has a review of the only ride. James played garbage, again. This time as part of his The Garbage Man streams: Quest for Camelot, Freak Crossing, and Arcade Archives: Stakes Winner 2. Hide your kids. Gui finishes the segment with To Be Or Not To Be and Reventure.

Email: One question - where are you going on your video game vacation?

Send proposals here.


These are literal instructions.

Anime World Report returns this week with a quad of CyberConnect2 games in the New Business line-up. This is definitely not normal or good, but we did do it.

James kicks the show off with concluding thoughts on .hack//G.U. Last Recode - a collection he swore he was not "going to play all the way through right now," which he of course then proceeded to play all the way through. It's a testament to how a strong premise, mysteries, and world building can carry weak writing. He then turns his attention to Quest for Camelot. He has many questions.

Jon has kept clean of this anime tide, and is playing Starfield - which he has only some quick thoughts on. He's also poking cautiously at Baldur's Gate 3, for fear its immenseness will ensnare him. Instead he's a Monster Hunter man, returning to World and also trying out the Niantic's Monster Hunter Go. Guess what game it's like...

Guillaume found another brawler in Final Vendetta, and this one he likes. He's also going in hard on CyberConnect2: killing orphans in Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 (the sequel to the also-discussed Fuga: Melodies of Steel) and the ultimate expression of QTEs as a gameplay substitute in Asura's Wrath.

Greg closes out New Business with an update on F-Zero 99. The newly-added content is giving the game a little more heft.

After a break, we tackle a duo of Listener Mail (without taking two hours). This week we pick the next collection coming to Switch (and the missing one that should) and we eat our consoles. You can send your orders here.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 841: HAL Is Playing Hardball
« on: September 24, 2023, 12:26:54 PM »

Never drive a hard bargain with your landlord.

Sometimes we call episodes of this show a trainwreck. That's not today. Today is the more mundane version of train-related issues: a late arrival.

We wanted to start the show with some email, given that it had been a minute since we did a dedicated email segment. Instead we only handled two emails.

And that was the entire show.

I'm not kidding; there's no second segment. The show just ends. We spent two hours on two emails. It's unthinkable. We talked about two topics: where are the handheld games on Nintendo Switch Online and what makes a game "outdated." They're broad topics, but good grief!

Help us out here. Send us some short emails, with specific topics. Help us stay on task.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 840: Mario Spreading
« on: September 17, 2023, 03:34:42 PM »

You need a little extra space. There's no reason to make this a "thing."

This week it's all Nintendo Direct, front to back.

You know what was in the Direct, and if you don't - you will.

Send us emails here.


Also tonight at 11, Usain Bolt sues local podcast for unflattering comparisons.

This week we were going to do a restrained New Business.

We were going to make up for some light email segments.

We did not.

Jon bought an Analogue Pocket, and that was the end of all of it. You too can try to convince him to buy an Analogue Duo. Be a part of the problem with me. He also has been playing Starfield, so this is easily the most Jon Lindemann you've heard in a decade. Guillaume has been looking for his next belt-scroller. This time he and Karen have played The Takeover. Let's just say this one is not "the real" Streets of Rage 4.

James and Greg were literally out of time for New Business, so they opted to take this week off.

After a break we attempted to salvage the "let's dive into the inbox" ethos of the pre-show meeting. It ended with only two questions: who needs to move to the Corner Office and why are people so down on the PlayStation Portal. Answers only available on the same Wi-Fi network as the questions.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 838: More Like Self-Sabotage
« on: September 03, 2023, 03:46:41 PM »

Much like this show...

This week we start by reviewing the Super Mario Bros. Wonder Direct. Honestly, it showed more than we needed to see, but we did get info about Nintendo and more of their weird online stuff. 15 minute direct? Hour long segment. RFN Magic.

After a break, we take on New Business. Guillaume is playing Sea of Stars, and while some reviews are glowing, he isn't feeling the magic. He's also playing the Dimension Shellshock DLC of TMNT Shredder's Revenge, but the expectation that you would play this fresh on the heels of the main game are causing some struggles. Jon finally finished Cyberpunk 2077, also in anticipation of upcoming DLC, and paid for the privilege of getting to play Starfield a few days early - so he could talk about it with you. James completed the first "game" in .hack//G.U. Last Recode, and can now explain the experience of moving between titles in what was an anthology series. Lastly, Greg is has been playing Excitebike 64 - a very late N64 game, now available on the Nintendo Switch Online with Expansion. He also finally got around to Kirby Star Allies.

As always, email us, please.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 837: Donald Sutherland Is a Sexual Being
« on: August 27, 2023, 04:27:00 PM »

A live revelation.

James is back, and he has a bunch of Muppets to put in order.

This week he starts New Business with a look at .hack//GU Last Recode, a remaster/collection of the second set of PS2 .hack JRPGs. It was a bold move to make an anime AND multiple PS2 games about a character that is committed to reminding you how much he sucks. Jon doesn't have a lot to talk about, so instead he talks about the trailer for Thank Goodness You’re Here!

This is 12 out of 10 British Content Units (BCU). Greg has finished The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap and is now looking forward to upcoming Nintendo Switch Online games Excitebike 64 and another Pokémon Stadium. Gui is exploring an abandoned home as a tiny leader of other tiny critters... no it's not Pikmin, it's Tinykin! He's also trying to unravel the history of a famous actress in Immortality. James wraps back around and talks about the Meow Wolf Convergence Station, an "immersive art" instillation in Denver that transports visitors to a dimensional crossroad and hosts a very expansive AR game.

After the break, its time for serious email only. You can be serious here. This week, we talk seriously about Charles Martinet's departure from his role as Mario and what being a "brand ambassador" actually means.


Not gonna lie...RFN feels like The Muppet Movie sometimes.

James is out this week, which means Gui assumes the hosting chair with Greg and Jon along for the ride. The result is a rich and nuanced discussion that examines serious topics in an earnest effort to engage the audience on several different levels. Oh wait...*checks notes*...that never happened. What you get instead is the expected two hours of nonsense and tomfoolery that only Radio Free Nintendo can provide.

New Business sees Greg dipping into his retro backlog as he plays through The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, and we discuss how it compares to other games in the series. Jon gives some updated thoughts on Vampire Survivors, newly released on Switch and ready to accompany you on your next trip to the graveyard. Gui, who is now officially the "first-person shooter guy" on the podcast, discusses the recent remaster of Quake 2 and the equally brocore Pikmin 2. He's hunger striking for a Pikmin FPS that may never come, so keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

This week's Listener Mail covers which games we like to simply walk around in, which Muppet each person on RFN would be, and what we think the form factor and announce/release dates will be for the next Nintendo system. If you want to be Muppetized, feel free to karate chop an email over here.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 835: Horus vs. Horace
« on: August 13, 2023, 11:25:13 AM »

Homonyms and mythonyms.

We're preparing for RFN season 6, five years into season 5.

First order of business: Fixing the RSS feed... yeah, it's busted again.Second order of business: A mascot.

Should we spend efforts coming up with a new plan to boost listeners?What about some new music to start the show?How about redesigned art?

No. A mascot.

This week, this becomes something of a rolling debate, so submit your votes.

New Business this week: Gui and James are still in Pikmin 4, but Gui is also looking at Pikmin 1+2 HD. Lastly, he's looking at cooking-based story game Venba. Jon is playing the Genesis version of Ghouls 'n Ghosts. This turns into a long, unfocused, conversation on weird console/micro-computer ports. Come for the guy in his boxers, stay for the Amstrad CPC. Greg has impressions on the demo of Patrick's Parabox (Disclaimer: friend-of-the-show Syrenne has involvement in the game), and he actually beat Kirby's Tilt 'n' Tumble.

Listener Mail this week has two questions. The first asks what games were "perfect" for their system, and the second is the quest for a mascot. You can vote here.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 834: Reset the Weeks Since Showpony Clock
« on: August 06, 2023, 11:21:23 AM »

Jon and Horace both return this week.

Jon triumphantly walks back into our lives after a two week absence.Horace sheepishly trots back into our lives after a single week absence.

Who is the real ironhorse here?

Surprise! James bought Pikmin 4. Oh, and he's also literally played all of it in about 5 days. Never really much of a Pikmin fan, it turns out 4 is a pretty good way to recuperate after you injure yourself. Again.

Jon finished Final Fantasy XVI and finally got around to watching The Super Mario Bros. Movie now that its hit The 'Cock.

Speaking of making a billion dollars, we also divert to talk briefly about Nintendo's latest quarterly numbers - especially the abject failure that is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Imagine not even managing to sell 20m units in 6 weeks. What an embarrassment.

New Business wraps with Greg's impressions of Theatrhythm Final Bar Line. All the music, none of the Square Enix weirdness. Well, less of the Square Enix weirdness.

Listener Mail this week answers two related questions: should I future-proof my gaming library physically or digitally AND what games will launch the next Nintendo system? You can send us your unanswerable riddles here.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 831: Waluigi Will (Not) Be Normalized
« on: July 16, 2023, 07:33:58 PM »

"Waluigi containment is a top priority for this government."

Keeping it brief, because I'm still recovering from writing this bullshit.

New Business:

  • Greg and Gui have the latest round of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC. It's time to see what Vancouver is up to.
  • Gui has found another belt-scroller in Fight'N Rage, which is a pretty sick name.
  • Jon is wrapping-up Final Fantasy XVI.
  • Greg has wrapped Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective.
  • Lastly, a conversation on Kid Icarus Uprising and Star Fox Command's control accessibility.

Listener Mail:

  • Fake or Real: Whatever the hell is going on at Limited Run Games.
  • Buying Everybody 1-2 Switch! as an investment is a bad idea.
  • Will Nintendo make the mistake of including Waluigi in Super Mario Bros. Wonder?
  • Emails: Go here.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 830: The PokéLore Hole
« on: July 09, 2023, 11:45:44 AM »

We have a two hour origin story on Nurse Joy of Lavender Town waiting for you.

This week we lead the show with Listener Mail. Our plan is to live the maximum degree of Pokémon. Failing that, and we do, we explore games that we are simply physically incapable of not failing. Lastly, we are for sale. Send payments here.

After a break, we hit New Business. PLAY GHOST TRICK! James and Greg did. It will only require 10 hours. Your life will be forever changed. Gui is still working through Tears of the Kingdom (no spoilers) and weird Zelda-like Crusader of Centy. Jon is still playing Final Fantasy XVI and arcade racer Inertial Drift.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 829: Single-Use Ultrahand
« on: July 02, 2023, 12:40:14 PM »

There's no cleaning this bad boy.

Everybody 1-2 Switch lets you show Horace your pony, and it also managed to disrupt yet another episode of Radio Free Nintendo. It's pretty much a given that Horace will make an appearance in any given episode of the show, and this week he just keeps coming back.

Yet, he isn't the most alarming thing mentioned this week.

HOWEVER the horror comes a bit later. We start the show with a pretty exhaustive look at the Pikmin 4 demo. Gui has cleared it, and Greg is a bit in. James got to see a menu. Jon is a Pikmin, so his opinion is too biased. There was also a Pikmin Bloom promo to push the demo, and also a Niantic layoff to "refocus" on Pokémon Go. James has been playing Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon and Netflix's other questionable games. After a break, Jon has extensive impressions of Final Fantasy XVI: There's no Mandatory Movie to Watch.

We asked for email and you all answered! A fresh delivery to our inbox gave us two emails to answer this week: a chance to merge any two Nintendo franchises and a round of Metacritic Golf.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 828: The Big Cheesing Honor System
« on: June 24, 2023, 02:45:00 PM »

Horace Showpony says, "Nintendo Directs, now with more horse parts."

Tuesday was a big news day around these part. First, Nintendo announced their direct, scheduled for Wednesday, and then they dropped a new - alarming - trailer for Everybody 1-2 Switch. The horse got a name, a cult following, and just some generally alarming imagery.

We, of course, indulged.

After we broke away from our new Horse God, we went through all the items in Wednesday's Direct, assisted by actual preparation by James.

Farm Games: 3
"Cozy": 3
Memories: Elephant Mario

That's right, Super Mario RPG remake is cool, Star Ocean The Second Story R is neat, but Super Mario Bros. Wonder is a nightmare of unfathomable proportions.

We're entranced.

Also: Wario Train

We are in dire need of questions. Please, I'm asking, send them.


This is the best we can hope for from you-know-who.

Jon is back and he isn't up to speed on his NATO/OTAN abbreviations.

This week, coming off from some time away, he's playing a lot of fours. That is, he's playing Monster Hunter 4U on 3DS and Diablo 4. Guillaume is playing revived arcade game Clockwork Aquario and an actually-ugraded We Love Katamari. Greg has more impressions of Kirby Tilt and Tumble and the Ghost Trick demo.


This week we answer a single email, enquiring how we would adapt Xenoblade Chronicles 3 to the Warriors format. Greg and James mostly passed, and wrote our own fan fiction for other Xenoblade content. This dovetails nicely with James' on-going weekly series "A Warriors Warrior Warriors for Warriors' Warriors."

You can... you know the thing. Do it here.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 825: Chiffon Does Bring Out the Crazies
« on: June 04, 2023, 02:31:22 PM »

The cake, not the fabric,

This episode has everything, from balloons to aliens and more.

We start the show with Listener Mail. Our first quest-

WE INTERUPT THIS SEGMENT FOR BREAKING NEWS. Nintendo announced Everybody 1-2 Switch! as we started recording and email gets sidelined for a thirty minute investigation of the game. This game must be so good, because Nintendo refuses to even describe it. A game of indescribable quality? Count me in!

Back on track, Listener Mail asks if the successor to Switch (which we do not know) will support amiibo and what cultural differences have impacted Nintendo's games. We couldn't have known at the time that Europe's taste for - and disrespect of - horses would result in the removal of the host's right to participate.

Not My 1-2 Switch.

My inbox.

After a break we take on New Business. Guillaume is yet another RFN member to take on the dinosaur-racing antics of Cruis'n Blast. Then we return to Hyrule, with more Tears of the Kingdom thoughts. Greg and James have finished off their eternal foe, and are now closing out their remaining quests. Gui and Jon continue on the road to the ultimate confrontation.


This week we have an exclusive interview with RFN's host.

This week, we're extremely excited to sit down with the host of Radio Free Nintendo, James Jones, to tell us about Episode 824.

James Jones - Nintendo World Report: James, thanks for joining us today.

James Jones - Radio Free Nintendo: It's my pleasure; thanks for having me.

NWR: Everyone wants to know, what did you all talk about this week? I assume a lot of Tears of the Kingdom.

JJ: (laughs) I'm sure they do. This week we do talk quite extensively about Tears, but that's not how we started.

NWR: Oh? That's a surprise.

JJ: We thought about it, and realized that people who are trying to stay as pure as possible might appreciate us including some non-Tears content. We decided to front-load it, starting with a riff on Sony's Project Q and Konami's naming decisions. We then asked Gui and Jon do their New Business. Editor's Note: co-hosts Guillaume Veillette and Jon Lindemann.

NWR: Project Q is so weird.

JJ: And Metal Gear Solid 3 is now Delta? Stupid.

NWR: So what did Guillaume talk about?

JJ: You will not believe it, but he's been playing Guilty Gear -Strive- on Xbox and Guilty Gear on Switch.

NWR: No!

JJ: I told you!

NWR: And Jon?

JJ: Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, specifically the first game.

NWR: That's a bit more believable.

JJ: What's less so is he listened to Jonny's appearance a few weeks ago to make sure he offered new insights.

NWR: I'm stunned!

JJ: It's true though. After that we pulled a couple of emails from the inbox that are somewhat Tears-adjacent. Greg and I used those emails to talk about Tears, rather than doing a traditional New Business. Editor's Note: Co-host Greg Leahy.

NWR: Adjacent? What questions were asked?

JJ: The first asked if Monolith Soft was the best JRPG developer in the game, and if they'd be better served with a more grounded style of storytelling.

NWR: More grounded than a sentient, petty, world full of King Kongs?

JJ: Seems grounded to me. The second email asked where the Zelda series can go from here. Are we beyond "bigger is better?"

NWR: It's what you do with it.

JJ: It's like Jon is in the room with us.

NWR: Speaking of, what's up with that title ["I Dare You to Play Eye of Judgment"]? It had to be Jon, right?

JJ: Very perceptive of you. We're drafting Jon to become THE Eye of Judgment streamer on Twitch.

NWR: That sounds like the worst idea I've ever heard. I hope it happens.

JJ: Me too.

NWR: Well then, I can't wait to listen. Thank you for joining us!

JJ: My pleasure. And remember, send your emails.

Podcast Discussion / Episode 823: Pantless in Hyrule
« on: May 21, 2023, 04:22:01 PM »

Day 11: It's cold, I'm still stuck on this mountain, and a stupid plant person keeps asking me to find his friend.

I probably don't need to tell you that this episode is largely devoted to discussions of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It's a tough game to talk about, especially this early, because so much of the game's joy is in the small discoveries - in a way everything is and isn't a spoiler. If you want to stay totally pure, come back later. We're all early-to-mid game so there's no real major plot spoilers here, but some tales of our early travels are shared.

Guillaume did manage to talk about something besides Tears... The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D. Week 4 of the Radio Free Hyrule podcast continues apace.

Lastly, we did manage to slide in a single email on gaming and managing your mental well-being. We covered this during the early days of the pandemic; obviously the world is different now. You can ask us to review an old topic here.


Are we releasing a Wind Waker episode, right as Tears of the Kingdom comes out? No, we RECORDED it as it came out. We're releasing after.

Finally, after six weeks, the regular cast is back together. Finally, it is time or our The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker RetroActive part 2.

Does that mean we recorded after The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was released for Greg and as it was releasing or the rest of the cast? Yes.

Does that mean you all are playing a new, gigantic, Zelda game already? Yes.

Do you still have space in your earholes for a retroactive on the O.G. big-world Zelda? I hope so.

If not, it'll still be here later. RetroActives are pretty timeless, and that's why we decided to release it here. After all, Breath of the Wild launched the same day we recorded a very tomato RetroActive. Call it tradition.

Next week we'll have a lot of Tears of the Kingdom to talk. For now, email us.

Okay, back to the underground.

"This new Mario Kart DLC is getting spicy!" - James

LAST TIME, ON RFN: "I promise you THREE emails!"

THIS TIME, ON RFN: It's a call-in show! With three emails.

That's right, with Gui still out and Greg watching the NFL Draft, Jon and James are running the shop on their own. And what do immature children do when the adults are out of town? House party.

We let you, the listers, become you, the callers. We were blindsided with questions and forced to answer them on the spot.

Topics we covered this week include:

  • RFN: The Game
  • Gaming and Public Domain Literature
  • Games Lost Without Music
  • RFN on Mario Party Monthly
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC Character Draft
  • Nintendo Franchise Lore DLC
  • What Nintendo Got Wrong on Switch
  • Nintendo PR and Nintendo Lawyers: The Infinite Struggle
  • How to Fix Wii U (but not Change the Name)
  • What if Elon Bought Nintendo
  • ...and the RFN Email Address

If you're still struggling after that last one, you can use this instead.

The Wind Waker RetroActive part 2 now has a date: May 11. Yes, that is hours before Tears of the Kingdom launches. Did you know hours before the launch of Breath of the Wild was the Princess Tomato RetroActive?

This is tradition.

You can post your [Wind Waker] comments here.
