This week's show gets an unusual start, as Billy jumps in for the first half-hour or so, Gui shows up a bit late due to technical problems, and for no reason in particular, we shuffle the order and do Listener Mail first. The first couple of questions are perfect softballs for Billy's rants on how to enjoy Wii U (Monster Hunter) and the cancellation of Nintendo's E3 press conference (he is opposed). The rest of the gang is also quite verbose on these topics, describing our current outlook on the console, picking apart recent development news from EA and such, and looking ahead to how Nintendo can make the upcoming convention work for them in a year when most of the general attention will be focused elsewhere. Then Billy has to drop out so he can support the NWR Community Night (next chance to play with him and other NWR peeps is Monday night, May 20), and the rest of us soldier on with another question about the next 3DS revision and some fan mail for James.
It definitely felt weird to do New Business after the break, but there's no hit to the quality of the games we played or what we have to say about them. Jon is first with Nano Assault EX, the 3DS eShop version of a game that some of us loved in other forms -- yet he struggles to find the appeal. Gui checks out a recent big digital release, Mario and DK: Minis on the Move, which increasingly sounds like a game we should all buy. James has a follow-up on Darksiders 2, which he powered through despite severe technical glitches (that will never be fixed, thanks to THQ's demise). Jonny concludes both this episode and another game on his priority list with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, a charming but flawed revival for the franchise.
E3 is fast approaching, so we'll have our show predictions soon and would also enjoy seeing your own thoughts, expectations, and questions about the biggest event in video games.
