With all this news right now, we decided to take it out of the weekly show, and give you a double shot of the news twice through the week. Starting today, expect a new 15-minute long news show every Tuesday and Thursday night (give or take a few hours).

This week, Neal and Patrick talk about Rayman Legends on Wii U, Nintendo's E3 press conference, Nintendo of America's comments about the retail/download situation, La-Mulana's cancellation, the new Club Nintendo reward games, Mario Tennis Open, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Basically, we fit a bunch of stuff into 15 minutes.

Enjoy the show, and be sure to let us know what you think. This is sort of like a pilot to a TV show. It might get cancelled like that weird Americanization of The IT Crowd with Joel McHale in the Chris O'Dowd role. Or it could be the next Friends. Something tells me, it will have more in common with the former.

Always excited for more Connectivity! I usually get my fix on Mondays and have to wait a week for the next one.

Thanks Neal and Patrick!

Of course if we could actually get more episodes of the British IT Crowd, that would be the best case scenario.

This is a great idea! now I don't need to sit around craving new podcasts during the week. Added to the fact that everything will be a lot more current seeing as you will be able to discuss the news right as it breaks :D

I thought it was great!  I hope it isn't too terribly difficult to put together, and that it will survive in some form, at least during the big news weeks around E3 and other events.

I can tell you that we will have podcasts at E3. I can tell you that they won't be this (I think). We'll probably do it like last year, where RFN is our away team feed, and Connectivity is our home team feed.

I'm glad you guys like it. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works out. I hope it's successful and we can keep on doing it.
