Jon is out again this week so Greg, Gui, and James anchor a three-man show. Guillaume leads New Business with the recently-released Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 on the GBA Virtual Console. For those keeping track at home, it's 2 * Super + 3 + 4. James has impressions of iPhone to 3DS eShop RPG dungeon-crawler/restaurant management/chef game Adventure Bar Story. It's "an Atelier game" without magic, a comparison that probably only makes sense to three people reading this. Greg rounds out New Business with impressions of the demo of mega-mashup Project X Zone 2.

Great show as always.

James you said last story was low print and then hard to find. That's not true. The initial release was low print but then due to demand it was very quickly restocked and it's been available on Amazon by Amazon at the same price of 30 dollars since launch and still. The special edition was available for a bit too.

Go on Amazon and you'll find it in stock by Amazon 30 bucks right now.

It's plentiful in supply in the US where it was published by XSeed, but in Europe it's dropped off the face of the Earth since Nintendo published it. Online the cheapest I can find in the UK is like £50.

Yeah that would make sense. I didn’t know the situation in Europe and if James said Europe then that’s my bad I missed that part.

Radiant Historia is another one James was off about. That game launched in limited quantities as well then a steady stream of restocks came and then it’s been in stock ever since sold by amazon. 25 bucks right now.
