We could replace all New Business with Listener Mail and not impact marketability.

We've been neglecting you, dear listener. No, I'm not talking in the collective; I'm addressing you personally. To you reading this, right now, we deeply apologize for our neglect. As penance, this week we try to make right with an episode devoted entirely to Listener Mail. Historically, this kind of focus has allowed us to blow through as many as a dozen emails, so this week we fittingly only solve six. Topics this week include: music in games, "design blindness", Wii ports we think are overdue, genres Kirby has yet to konquer, personal "sleeper" games, and what Labo support should be added to existing titles. You too can have your missives used to replace a perfectly good New Business topic by sending us an email.

This episode was edited by Guillaume Veillette. The "Men of Leisure" theme song was produced exclusively for Radio Free Nintendo by Perry Burkum. Hear more at Perry's SoundCloud. The Radio Free Nintendo logo was produced by Connor Strickland. See more of his work at his website.

This episode's ending music is Pac Jump Up!, from Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus. All rights reserved by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.

I like to think of my emails as the manure from which good email segments grow!

I'd hoped that the Steve and Ray intro would get some comment, but I guess it's so obvious that Jon is Steve Hewitt and James is Ray, that it goes without saying. I was also thinking of the radio team, Steve Elliott and Ray Goulding, so it works either way.

Thank you for keeping us safe from bearerist attacks for over 10 years!

I felt Blaster Master Zero had some good use for HD rumble. For example, jumping out of water for example is much different feeling than the different gun shots.
