With an event horizon at 20 centimeters, Kirby's mass would have to be many times that of the Earth. But gravitational distortions don't get to ride a mech.

E3 starts this week, and Radio Free Nintendo will be there (in spirit) to give you all the info about Unnamed Zelda Project you can handle, from four people who won't be playing it. But this week, we have a mostly normal show to get through, starting with New Business. Jon spent another week in the jaws of the San Jose Sharks, so a light crew has reports on only the newest of games. Greg kicks it off with Kirby: Planet Robobot. Kirby's second 3DS adventure adds the thing that universally makes all games better: mecha. Although his impressions are based on early gameplay, Greg is on-board. Gui has the freshest of racing games in Konami Krazy Racers for the GBA. It's the second appearance of this game in New Business; just imagine if famed fitness club company Konami had ever focused on making games! He also has a report on the hottest new tech from the 1995 Winter CES, getting a Sony CRT off Freecycle. Heads up, for those of you not old (or in Jon's case young) enough to remember, CRTs are heavy. James has baseball fever, and the only cure is to try to watch a game of baseball. Knowing better than to do that, he instead opted to go play NEO GEO classic Baseball Stars 2 (now with video). After a round of New Business, we offer some light speculation on the E3 to come.
Following a break, it's time for the return of Listener Mail. Topics covered include "good" video game marketing, the fate of the Nintendo World Championships, Mother 3 at E3, and the future of Super Mario Maker DLC. You can ask us to name the next place Nintendo won't announce Mother 3 via our mailbag.
It's E3 week! To celebrate, Radio Free Nintendo will be doing our first live-show of 2016. Join us Wednesday, June 15, at 9 PM Eastern for a live recording of our reaction to the show. You can also watch our feed for impressions of NWR staff on site, playing the games.
