James was unable to start the show this week, so he left some very specific instructions for his cohorts. They were not followed. We're sorry in advance for the next two and a half hours of your life.

Greg starts A Very Lindemann New Business with a look at Battle Chasers: Nightwar, a non-Japanese JRPG based on a 90s comic. He was aware of the game's reputation for a sudden difficulty spike, and took precautions, but this may have padded the length a bit. He also took advantage of his Nintendo birthday discount - making him the first documented person in history to be offered a game they didn't already own - to get his hands on Super Mario Maker for 3DS. He mostly bought it for the included stages, and for the paltry price he paid he isn't perturbed. Guillaume is working on his future career as a Japanese convenience store clerk with ACA NEOGEO Money Puzzle Exchanger. He also has a look at Space Dave, a Galaga-inspired sequel to Woah Dave!, itself the sequel to Dave. Lastly, he looks at Adult Swim Games' weird new billiards game Pool Panic. Ever want to be a cue ball bent on nihilistic destruction? Seek help, but also this game is really for you. Jon is also in on an ACA NEOGEO game, with League Bowling. It's an arcade bowling game; there's not a lot of jokes to make here. James concludes New Business with more thoughts on Shining Resonance Refrain. He's way into the dating mechanics now, and they're not exactly melting his heart.

After the break we knockout a trio of Listener Mail. This week we offend everyone with the following: who is the worst fanbase, what's the next Nintendo character to have their mind stolen by a sentient hat, and will the next Mario Kart game be on Switch? You too can help us alienate our listeners by sending us an email.

So with Gui on vacation someone else will have to play Slaps & Beans then.

Choosing Kirby as the form of Goza the Destroyer? Are you out of your minds? That's an all-devouring cosmic horror that gets away with murdering hundreds just for a slice of cake by being pink

You could subdivide Nintendo fanbases as deep as every single game they've ever produced and still have an all-consuming tie for first.
Yeah, I said it.

Bangin' show, crew. Bangin' show!

Does the Kirby anime redeem Kirby or reinforce Jon's position?

He would be required to have a coherent position for it to be impacted.

I've been considering not listening to this episode. I think I'll relent and finally listen today during my art stream I'll be having later.

Everything was said with love.

Except Jon. Jon's a prick.
