 Nintendo Free Radio Forumcast Episode 1: Even More Games Than An E3 Press Conference
By Stephen Shook, Ryan Clay, Austen Parken, Donald Theriault

With the regular RFN crew scattered to the winds, four members of the Nintendo World Report forums - Stephen "Ceric" Shook, Austen "broodwars" Parkin, Donald "Shaymin" Theriault and Ryan "racht" Clay decided to step up and attempt to fill the large shoes left. Although it's hard to match the regular crew's chemistry, the replacements brought 24 games, or one more than Nintendo themselves had at E3!

An absolutely massive New Business segment sees Stephen lead off with Mass Effect 3 post-Extended Cut impressions (may contain spoilers, ends at 27:16), and follows up with the first World of Warcraft discussion to not meet the editor's axe in a long time focusing on the new "PokeWoW" pet battles. After a TheatRhythm Thief doubleheader and Skylanders, Donald jumps in with impressions of Pokemon Black and White 2 straight from Japan, warns people about Final Fantasy II (PSP) and outlines his training techniques...  for JEOPARDY. Yes, the game show. (You can download his tracking spreadsheet from Google Docs.)

Ryan picks up the RPG torch with Xenoblade Chronicles and scares everyone but Austen with his play clock before moving to Limbo on Steam and the joys of playing Kid Icarus Uprising when you're left-handed. Despite not being a wizard, Ryan also brings discussion of downloadable 3DS pinball both classic in Kirby's Pinball Land, and new in Marvel Pinball. Austen wraps with a run of DS adventures, rattling off Ace Attorney Investigations, 999 and Ghost Trick before talking more about Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals than anyone in the history of the internet and a couple of independent PSN games in Dyad and Quantum Conumdrum.

After the break, we asked ourselves to come up with one game we're each excited for in the 2nd half of 2012, and the selections may will surprise you. To finish, the group tackles the question of hatred toward accessibility in games  and why the majority of players being able to see the content of a game is suddenly a scary thing.

The regular crew will be back next week, but we'd love to hear your thoughts on this episode as we get closer to the big episode 300 - don't be afraid to drop a comment in the Talkback thread or anywhere else fine podcasts are discussed. Be sure to send in your Listener Mail as well and keep playing and discussing Wario Land 4 in the Retroactive thread.

This podcast was edited by Ryan Clay. Music for this episode was provided by Jason Ricci & New Blood, and additional music is copyright Nintendo.

Isn't basically every non-NWR gaming podcast already Nintendo-Free Radio?

Sure. But all of those other guys don't share the love that we have as NWR - RFN/Connectivity fans.

Just wait and see. Hopefully we won't disappoint!


Plus, we named it this literally as a spin on the RFN name - we like to think this podcast is an extension (from the fans/forum-goers) of Radio Free Nintendo. :)

This is looking like it's going to be a lot of fun to do, and maybe if it turns out well it can be something we do more regularly.  I think people may be surprised at the amount of talk about games on Nintendo platforms it looks like we're going to do, especially from me.  At the very least, I hope we turn out a better show this week than Giant Bomb just did on theirs.  Frickin' 70 minutes into the podcast before they actually started to talk about video games... ::)

If you guys get this put together I'll promote it for you on the NWR Facebook/Twitter and on the front page, so hopefully you'll get a big audience.

You can, but if it's about Colorado I'm already considering something before the main show about that.

Huh, sounds like something I would have been interested in doing. Oh well, maybe in the future. I will probably listen to it (especially if NWR uploads it to the RFN iTunes slot).

Please don't...there are very few things worse in this world than a bad fake British accent... :D

Also, I'm making a last call here for any potential topics anyone would be interested in hearing 4 random people you don't know talk about!  The group plans on recording this evening to align themselves with RFN's normal release schedule.

Yeah, we know the show's rather lengthy.  The sad thing is, that was after we gutted most of the 2nd segment due to how long New Business was going on.   :P: :   If we ever do another show, we're going to try to get the length down.  But hey, at least that's 3 hours of actual game conversation, rather than something like Giant Bombcast's 2.5 hours of random B.S. + 15 minutes of game conversation last week (no, I'm not going to let that go).   ;)

For what it's worth, the podcast is split nicely into several chapters by what game they're discussing, so if they talk about a game you're uninterested in, you could skip that chapter.
