Since our last episode was a few days late, you're getting this one a day early (thanks to Karl's diligent editing!). Mike Sklens, Jonny Metts, and Karl Castaneda talk about the games they're playing (lots of Pokemon) and answer reader mail about the future of the Pikmin series. There's also plenty of news about Smash Bros. Brawl, Monolith Soft, Wii shortages into 2009 (?!?), and massive Pokemon sales.

The feature segment is all about our Dream Games, i.e. what games we would make if we had our own development teams. Karl has a particularly great idea, but unbeknownst to him, some savvy developer scooped it years ago.

For more information on Jonny's idea, or if you just want a preview while the episode downloads, check out this YouTube video:

This Magic and Pokemon discussion makes me sick.
I'm all for another Pikmin that ditches the random level generation for more puzzles.
Not another sim game. At least Obi has the brains to recognize not many would be interested in this.
That instrument sounds interesting, but I'm not sure I'd have fun playing it.

So... for the one year anniversary of Radio Free Nintendo. I think you should bring Evan and Mike back, from the original podcasts and Karl and Stan back, from Nintendo Pirate Radio. Ideas for topics, I would like to see a discussion about the early speculation behind Wii/Revolution and how, if any, of these things came true. i.e. early controller speculation, games and other cool stuff like that. It would be cool if you added some things about how Nintendo has changed over the years, From the NES to the Wii and how much they have affected other video game companies, console and game companies.

Thanks, Daniel
p.s. I know where Evan lives

What the hell? It's already been a year?

Karl's dream game sounds the funnest.

Looking forward to episode 52, I hope Stan and Evan can make it.

Well, I finally picked up Pokemon, so next week I'll talk about it a bit.

I enjoyed this Radio Trivia commercial one thousand times more than the previous one. WTG TYP.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm because Karl reused an commercial from a prior podcast, or genuine because you didn't hear it the first time but heard the old one on Funhouse Radio.

It was reused? I've listened to every RFN podcast and I didn't recognize it.

Seriously though, I did enjoy it. It made me laugh. Plus, I really didn't like the old jeopardy-themed commercial. For some reason it struck a nerve.

Karl Castaneda #2May 04, 2007

I think I've only used that commercial once, so it's logical that vudu just didn't remember it. I kept on forgetting that I had it, so it barely made it onto the show, which is probably why it sounds new.
