This week, Andy returns from a slight case of the bubonic plague and joins Mike, Scott and Zach to talk about... well, a whole mess of things. First up, there's actually a little news! Nintendo has added four new games to their "Nintendo Selects" line, while Sony, too, is playing the price drop game, bringing the black obelisk down to a manageable $250. No word on when this price will be too much for consumers and Sony will initiate a rewards program for early adopters. Anyway, if you've been in a coma since 2005, this is news you can use!
After the news, the guys discuss what they've been playing, with such topics as: Let's Golf 3D, Mario's Picross, Final Fantasy Three Six, Tetris DS, Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension, Doctor Who and Star Trek. Check out Doctor Octoroc's awesome 16-bit Doctor Who intro here.
Finally, it's time for Metroid. Each game in the series gets a little time as the group talks about first discovering the series and which game is their favorite. Would you believe that Zach feels that Metroid Pinball is the definitive Metroid game?*
Enjoy this extra-long episode (for his and her pleasure) and be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your fondest Metroid memories or thoughts about Doctor Who.
