The Radio Free Nintendo crew wasn't at PAX East, but that's okay: they're not in this episode either.

Due to a series of foreseeable but unfortunate events, Guillaume finds himself manning the fort this episode. Fret not: Talk Nintendo has sent for reinforcements in the form of Perry Burkum and Casey Gibson. We quickly move on from Guillaume's crusty old 3D Out Run "New Business" and talk about their PAX East experiences and the exciting upcoming Switch games they've seen there. Greg makes a late entrance in order to quickly touch on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and we close the segment with Perry's impressions of Blaster Master Zero, which he reviewed for Nintendo World Report.

Perry bows out for Listener Mail, but James decides to make an appearance, so we discuss learning all of Super Mario Bros. 3's secrets almost by osmosis; the expectation of backwards compatibility; Capcom's recently announced collection of NES Disney games and how it snubs the Switch; the weight of My Nintendo rewards when choosing to buy a physical or digital version of a game; and we recommend a few 500 Wii Points VC games. You can send us your suggestions for a theme, or questions and comments, to our mailbag.

Talkback

I feel like I can definitively say that with the exception of Lindemann and maybe Carl, whenever the hosting buck for this show gets kicked down the road, it seems to enhance the talent of the new host by virtue of the pressure being on. Gui did an amazing job in the face of adversity, and I just wanna say...


Thank you for Radio Gui Nintendo this week.

That was a great episode. Gui hosting was an interesting change and having the Talk Nintendo guys was nice too.

Backwards compatibility is an interesting topic. I think its nice when it is there, but it doesnt really bother me when it isnt.


Semi unrelated, but a few days ago I finished listening to every episode of the show. It took about a year and a half, which is when I first found the show. RFN is definitely my favourite podcast.
I have now moved on to Radio Trivia, which I hadnt listened to at all, besides the telethon segments.

I took that same adventure and I think I'm a similar fashion (RFN then Radio Trivia). You're in for a treat because radio trivia kicks ass!

I've wondered for a while if they could do an account-based discount for the 8 -> 8DX upgrade if you bought the DLC courses. Stating "yes, I own it" is part of the purchase process for Wii U DLC.

Of course, it's a moot point now.

lolmonade, we are pilgrims in an unholy land. With the two recent episodes of NWR Chat, Jonny L has more than proven his hosting bonafides!

Congrats to Gui. He did a great job under seemingly hectic circumstances. Next time he hosts, change the name to Talking Nintendo with Gui. :)

Jon producing an audiobook guide: Maybe the next best thing would be to take a Twitch video of one of James's live streams and overlay a commentary track by Jon, critiquing his gameplay.
