Early impressions of Brawl lead to an oversized New Business segment that lasts nearly the entire show.

The usual gang is back this week for a free-wheeling episode devoted to catching up on all the games we played while RFN was being taken over by N64 nostalgia. We start with Brawl, covering our initial thoughts, differences with Melee, and online experiences.

In the proper New Business portion of the show, we get into an eclectic mix of games such as Actraiser, Super Turrican, Ace Combat 6, Professor Layton, and Desktop Tower Defense. The show wraps up with a brief tirade over the new trailer for Target Terror on Wii.

The Jason Ricci & New Blood video that Jonny mentions can be found here.

The masterpiece theater bit at the end was funny.

Also, is it just me or is Greg always really informed?

Great Podcast.  Just one comment.  You guys said that all online games could not have their saves copied to the SD card.  This is true in most cases, such as the mentioned Guitar Hero, however not all are like that.  The main online game that can have it's save copied that I know about it Mario Strikers Charged.

I agree with what they said about the level design. All the same, superstar is one of my favourite games to date

Well now my theory as to why it isn't done is shot.  I suspected they were worried about versions of profiles being moved to Wiis with different versions of the software, and that during patching it would automatically update existing profiles.  I guess we could chalk it up to crazy Nintendo until we have a better reason.

As for the "Great Moments in Radio Free Nintendo History," it was a product of not having a good stinger to work with so I made something up.

Hey new podcast gang: I don't say it often enough, but you guys are really great! And that's all I have to say.

A great podcast and while I love the Kirby games I was thinking the other day how poorly designed the levels are compared to what Kirby can do. Most levels you can float through along with being able to dominate most any enemy with the right item. Sakurai is NOT great at level design or balance.

No podcast this week?

Sorry, I was in no shape to edit much of the week.  It also takes longer to edit a podcast that you didn't sit in on.

It's done being edited, just waiting on some info so I can fire it off.

kraken613March 21, 2008

Take your time just wondered where it was!

NWR_InsanolordMarch 21, 2008

ya I kinda love those things.

Thanks, paid endorser!  Your new avatar pic makes you look like a bad ass.  False advertising?

Alright well my laptop's power cord broke 7 weeks ago and I'm catching up to the podcast by listening to them in chronological order and I just hit the part in episode 90 where he's in line and the guy at gamestop is asking for reservations and the comments of gamestop living and dying by reservations is TRUE! I work there and my manager quite literally forces me to ask for a reservation of a few suggested games on each system in EVERY transaction. Now of course I oblige because the more reservations I get = more hours I get = the more valuable I am to the company. Now of course, the other thing we offer is that damn subscription to Game Informer. That is why its always offered to you. Its all true. We try to get you to reserve things. Now of course there is a plus side to the consumer. This DOES in fact guarantee you a copy that day, regardless of whether or not your gamestop store will have extras. I mean arcana heart came out on the PS2 last week. We got 2 the day it came out. 5 people showed up to get it. That means we had to shoo them away because they didn't reserve it when we offered it to them. Now of course with big titles like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there were extras. I bet anything there will be extra Mario Kart Wii copies as well, but whether or not you get the wheel without reserving is beyond me. I have no idea. And Grand Theft Auto !V. I bet anything there will be extra copies as well. Its the smaller titles you may want to reserve because those are the ones we get very few of. If you're a harvest moon fan, reserve it because its a smaller game and there may or may not be too few to get all the people who want it on the day it comes out. And just so we all know, I don't favor gamestop because I work there. I think I've been objective. I buy games at other places. I mean I got my 360 and wii at a k-mart. Explanation/Excuse? None.
