This week, we discuss the Nintendo media summit and why certain Mario Kart character pairings might be deemed inappropriate.

For once, we talk about games that aren't even out yet!


Jon is out again, but Steven "Windyman" Rodriguez fills in for a lengthy and wide-ranging show covering a multitude of games never before discussed on RFN. We start with a relatively brief New Business; Steven fills us in on Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, a.k.a. the soccer game for people who don't like soccer. Both James and Jonny have been digging into some PC games. Greg saves his for the next segment...

...which is all about the games of Nintendo's media summit last week. We kick it off with a healthy (and positive!) chat about Mario Kart Wii, which both Steven and Greg have been playing. There may even be hope for solid online features in this one! Then, Steven takes center stage with Samba de Amigo, World of Goo, Boom Blox, Lost Winds, and more. He even played the Strong Bad game, "LOL".

Since it was such a big week in the world of Nintendo, we stretched into a rare third segment for VC Mondays and a couple of interesting news stories that came out of the media summit. Don't miss out on this great episode!

Since Jon is the go-to-guy to get bumped, is he ranked as the "fourth chair"?

I'm going to encourage you to use the AAC feed if you can this week.  Each chapter is a game, and a link to the impression/preview is provided.  Be sure to drop some haterade on Jonny for bashing FFCC: My Life as a King.

Also: doing the chapter-bit took forever so I want some play from it.  If you must use the MP3 feed here are the chapter points.

Jon didn't get bumped.  He canceled at the last minute, just like two weeks ago.  We were going to have Windy on the show anyway, so this just kept it from going into five-man-editing-Hell territory for James.

I had a lot of fun with this episode.  Please don't forget to send in your suggestions for Ep. 100!

Well, Radio Trivia is more "inconsistent" than "every other week," but whatever. Also, Funhouse Radio needs an update badly...sorry about that :/

how can you not like strongbad... i lost respect for you.

shammackApril 19, 2008

Because Jonny keeps talking about Magic Online, I signed up and now I'm probably going to be wasting hundreds of dollars on fake cards (while the real cards I spent hundreds of dollars on in high school languish in a box).  Thanks, Radio Free Nintendo!

Everyone should play Bully.... for the minigames. Seriously, they are all quite good.  The Boxing is easily better than Wii Boxing and it is very close a game on its own.  Check it out!

Like Jonny said, I didn't get bumped.  I've had some stuff come up the last few weeks that meant I couldn't do the Podcast.  It happens.

Says the guy with the Godfather Yamauchi icon.

And who doesn't like Strong Bad? Instant enemy for me, no matter who.

Greg Lehy..."I imagine SMG as the ideal place to go when I die"(paraphrased)

Classic.

Am I the only one that finds it strange that Johnny craps over great games like The Sims, yet praises the heck out of the Magic the Gathering?  ;)

When FFCC:MLatK comes out I will be sure to spend a long new business segment JUST on that.

No suggestions for people for the 100th episode yet?

I vote teh billeh, bloodworth, and any other ex-staffers you can find.

On the subject of Mario Kart tournaments...

I got kicked out of the 2005 Omegathon at the Double Dash round...


One Race.  7th and 8th get eliminated. I got hit with fireballs and fell off the track moments before the finish line and went from 2nd to 8th.

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusApril 24, 2008

Otakon 2006 I took 3rd in the Mario Kart DS tournament, should've taken 2nd but got hit by a red shell at the finish line. The guy who took first made me look like I sucked at the game. He beat me by about a quarter of the track; best snaker I have ever seen in my life.

I bet they hate us for what we did to their show.
