Radio Free Nintendo has two special episodes coming up. Next week is the show's first RetroActive in a metaphorical "Land of Oz." The following week is episode 450. How do you do an episode before those kinds of major events? The answer: you start it with New Business!
Greg has an update on Rare Replay, touching on Rare's early games before focusing on the connection between N64-classic Blast Corps and N64-also-a-game-I-guess Jet Force Gemini. Guillaume reports on the creeping Amiibo infection that has befallen RFN, Swedish mythological horror game Year Walk, and PlayStation Zelda-inspired, and anti-baboon propaganda, Alundra. Jon, recording from a drive-thru at the bottom of Ganymede's subterranean ocean, was apparently stranded there after finally deciding that that Galaxy 2 thing might be worth a few of his invaluable seconds. If you've not heard of Super Mario Galaxy 2, it turns out it's an okay game. Lastly, James hunts endless shinobi in FDS kunai-hell and Zelda engine reuse project Nazo no Murasame Jo ("The Mysterious Murasame Castle").
Following a properly recorded, from technical-standpoint only, Now Playing, it's time for Listener Mail. Topics covered include: Microsoft's corrosive effect on the games industry, favorite games, the future of the Nindies@Home program, and the value of a Wii U to a man of the road. You can send us your questions, whether you're at home or on the road, to our mailbag.
It's last call for our RetroActive: Mario Tennis: Power Tour! Comments have been light, so please post your thoughts on the game and there's a statistically high chance we'll read it on the show. We'll be covering it NEXT WEEK.
