Last week we told you Jon wasn't dead, this we debut our Jon Lindemann sound-alike.

He actually is back; you may choose to celebrate or mourn this as your preference dictates.

Guillaume is a real Boxhead, and so he's checking out BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! for Switch. Finally, all the great details of BOXBOY can be rendered as they should be. Jon has finished up Rygar and moved onto Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. Did he already own the game on Wii? Yes. Was it a collector's edition? Yes. Did I, this being the podcast itself speaking, even know the North American market got a collector's edition on Wii? No. Did he play it? Absolutely not. So congrats, Jon. Enjoy Xenoblade. James is still in sports withdrawal, and remains engrossed in Super Mega Baseball 3. At this point he's trying to make cap space despite not having anyone to sign, just so the imaginary sports podcasts have something to talk about. Lastly, Greg got his CoreGraffix Mini, the mini-console for the scrolling shooter fan in your life. It may have taken seemingly forever to get here, but it turns out it was worth the wait...as long as you like scrolling shooters.

After the break, we're finally able to tackle an email that was just waiting for Jon's return. What would happen if we took Hiroshi Yamauchi and replaced him with Mr. McBossman. Horrifyingly, we realized quickly not a whole lot would change. You can mix up our CEOs 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 Cipher Admin Battle from Pokemon Colosseum. It was requested by Gam Ham.

With the talk of eye strain and bright TVs, does that mean James and Gui play with the lights in the room off?
I suppose I haven't thought about it in a long time, but I always play with the lounge room lights on. They are wall mounted, and less bright than the main lights on the ceiling, so maybe they give a similar effect to the LED light Gui mentioned.

None of my wishlisted titles are on sale but I don't need the eshop for getting a cheap backlog when there's the itch.io bundle of over 1000 games.

Maybe! My living room doesn't have the greatest lighting: no ceiling lights, just a floorstanding lamp and a table one nowhere near the TV.

Bias lighting looks like this.

I actually bought some after we recorded and they showed on Saturday.

I was able to spend way more time on the Xbox than I usually can. I just ordered another set for a different TV.
