An alias is the most liberating thing. It frees you from your old sins, disassociates you from new ones, and lets you register for a Maestro card.

Jon is still being interrogated at a CIA Black Site, so this week we made the dubious decision to invite Syrenne McNulty back onto the show, for this, the last episode before next week's telethon. She leads New Business with a look at Paper Mario: Color Splash for Wii U. I know it LOOKS a lot like Sticker Star. It even plays a lot like Sticker Star. But this is not Sticker Star. She then turns her attention to Persona 5, which she places in contention for her favorite game of all time. The conversation stays focused on mechanics, so no story spoilers within. Gui has a book report on the narrative tour de force that is Shadow Complex Remastered, and we get our show redacted by the NSA. He has a look at SEGA Mega Drive & Genesis Classics, emulated and moddable 16-bit Sega games, now on Steam. Lastly, he talks about his time with the ReCore demo and Syrenne advises against proceeding beyond there. James discusses the true Quality of Life product from Nintendo - Yo Kai Watch 2; however, it seems more intent on despoiling quality. Lastly, Greg takes us to a Metroid Place with his impressions of Axiom Verge.
After the break, we do a shorter Listener Mail segment. The topics this week are the fate of hand-drawn sprites in games, and the rumored Final Fantasy 6 remake. You can rig our 3D models via our inbox.
This is your last reminder: the 7th Annual NWR Telethon is this Saturday, October 15. Donations are now open! Details are available here. If you're curious: RFN goes on at noon, Syrenne at 6, and Jon and James at 10 (all times Eastern).
Finally, we'll be taking next week off for the Telethon, but the subsequent week we'll be recording our RetroActive for LEGO City Undercover. There's still time to get started, but if you already have you can post your thoughts in the thread.
