New episode, will listen!

I was wondering: did the thread showing which games have been featured on Radio Trivia Podcast Edition get moved somewhere? I couldn't find it.

Dunno why it got un-stickied, but I found the thread and made it sticky again.

Cool, thanks!

Finished listening, good episode! I had a good laugh, haha, especially with poor little Luigi.  ;D

I was able to guess the first game even though I haven't played it yet (Fire Emblem Awakening) because that 2nd song definitely sounded like something from a Fire Emblem game (I've played most of them).

I had a feeling I knew what game 2 was (Super C) based on the 1st and 2nd songs, and that 3rd song made it easy to identify. I love that Konami NES music!

The bonus question was a big clue for game 3. I took a wild guess and I was right! I've never played the game (Fragile Dreams) but I've heard so much about it.

I had no idea what game 4 was (Young Merlin). I definitely remember reading about the game in Nintendo Power, but it never appealed to me.

Once that 3rd song played on game 5, it was easy enough to identify. Yeah, I liked EBA a lot!

I only missed one game, not bad

Recognized the last game right as first song started. Elite Beat Agents is such a great game! Love it, love it.

Listened based on Mett's suggestion in the latest RFN. I have to admit that I really don't get the format of asking the trivia question before announcing the game. I would have known the 'what is the Wiimote used for' question right off the bat if I knew what the game was, and I have played that game, but the music didn't leave an impression on me. It seemed like twice Josh had to remind 'wasn't there a trivia question to answer, by the way?'. But I gather this has been the format for quite a long while so I'll just return to my corner now.

It seemed like twice Josh had to remind 'wasn't there a trivia question to answer, by the way?'. But I gather this has been the format for quite a long while so I'll just return to my corner now.

The intent behind the trivia question is two-fold:
1) For those who haven't identified the game, it provides an extra hint as to what the game may be (e.g., the hint question you mention indicates it is a Wii or Wii U game), and
2) For those who HAVE figured out the game, it gives them something else to ponder while listening to the third song.

How well that works in practice, it's hard for me to tell. At this point, it is certainly tradition as much as anything else. I will be the first to admit I have been increasingly bad about remembering to answer to the trivia question. I try to include the answer as part of the discussion of the game, but sometimes (often?) the conversation goes elsewhere and I forget about answering the question--only to notice the omission during editing. Hence, the ending on this particular episode.

If I get a bunch of feedback from listeners that they don't like the trivia question part of the format, I'll consider changing or getting rid of it.

I hope you otherwise enjoyed the episode.
