Andy talks about his latest review game, Remote Racers on DSiWare. Spoiler alert: it's not good. Zach rounds out the show by talking about his latest retro pickup, but you'll have to listen to find out what it is.

should I listen BEFORE I get my 3DS tonight or AFTER?

When did you go to the Mall of America? I was there on March 17. Didn't go to Best Buy though.

Neal, i heard you mention Dorney Park.... I live about 40 minutes away, have you ever been there

I think I'm going to un-preorder my 3DS.. Noting personal, but I want to wait till something happens, either game wize or new hardware wise. I don't know why I was in a jump to preorder in the first place.

So does anyone know if it's Okay to get my 50 bucks back from my preorder? Will stupid gamestop give me store credit or what?

Yea. I'm over in New Jersey, so those Pennsylvania theme parks were vacation destinations when I was a kid. I vastly prefer Hershey Park, though.

more than likely store credit. The thing is you may not be able to find a 3DS for a while so you may find it difficult to find it later. Also the next 3DS version will probably not hit until 2013 at the earliest.

GBA: June, 2001
GBA SP: March 2003
GBA Micro: September 2005

DS: Nov 2004
DS Lite: June 2006
DSi: April 2009

3DS: March 2011

So that would mean that 3DS next version will more than likely come Summer 2013. Just something to think about

You guys need to have more conversations about Chrono Trigger so it'll get released on VC faster. In the meantime, the DS version is $13 on Amazon.

If I recall correctly, you said the 3DS will stop playing music if the system is closed? Working just fine for me, even when closed. Either my memory's fuzzy or Nintendo fixed it. =P

Overall, I am really enjoying my system. Great episode, too.

EDIT: I think it's this: the music will keep playing if you're using headphones. If not, the music will stop.
