After five years on the air, it felt like a good time to refresh the show a little bit. That means new music and a little more flexibility in how the show is structured. For a good example, just listen to how the show gets started...
We launch directly into talk of Xenoblade Chronicles, which just came out in Europe to amazing reviews. Greg's homeland is also the source of more interesting topics, such as the new Wii hardware revision and notable release date announcements. Greg also has good things to say about his latest eShop acquisition, Game & Watch Gallery -- also look out for his first impressions of Rhythm Tengoku for Wii, coming next week! Jonny revisits AlphaBounce and slathers even more adoration upon Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Jon seems underwhelmed by the Resistance 3 beta, and James gets frustrated with Borderlands before stepping into the world of Enslaved, starring that monkey guy.
After the break, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Super Nintendo (and NWR's ongoing feature, The SNES 20) by talking about our favorite games from the classic system. Using the site's list as a starting point, the RFN crew waxes nostalgic on timeless games. There are plenty of familiar titles in the mix, but we also explore the more obscure side of the SNES library and tell you which ones to download on Virtual Console, like right now.
Next week, we anticipate Karl joining us to defend Killer 7. If you have any thoughts on the game or are playing it now for the first time, join the discussion a the official RetroActive forum thread for a chance to have your comments read on the show! We also love getting your emails -- send one now!
