With the massive amount of Wii U news that came out this week, we sure do have plenty to discuss on this here episode of Connectivity. Firstly, Neal gathers up Zach, Scott, and Patrick to get their reactions to the big news. After that, we go direct to the source and get hands on impressions of a ton of games from Neal, Jared, Josh, and Ariel, who were all at the big event in NYC.

This is some pretty big news we got right here, and I'm willing to bet you have an opinion on it. You should totally tell us! Send us your listener mail by clicking here. Also, I know you love us so you should rate and review Connectivity on iTunes as well.

The .mp3 link is broken.  Otherwise, after recording our own little NFR impressions podcast a few days ago, I'll be interested to hear Connectivity's take on the event.  ;)

Mp3 link is broke. :(

And the iTunes feed is linking to the mp3 as well, which explains the ! of Death I'm getting right now.

Sorry for the delay. The mp3 was still exporting, but I wanted to get the AAC available as soon as I could, since it was already getting late. The mp3 is now available (or will be in about 3 minutes, it's uploading now).

Man I love Twilight Princess and its art style.  :(

It has a good mix of High Fantasy/Dark Victorian style.

LOL, I actually got mentioned on the podcast (about Wii U launch games, and pointing out that BioWare confirmed Mass Effect 3 will be a launch game). My second time mentioned on a NWR podcast (last time was in summer 2010 when I sent a letter to RFN about how there were a lot of good N64 games that COULD be on the Virtual Console because they had no licensing issues.

Good show, I love the long discussion on the Wii U launch. I want Nintendo Land so bad. I rarely get to have people over for multiplayer though, so I hope Nintendo puts bots in. I think it should be mandatory for any multiplayer game to have bots.

America gets things first because we have Black Friday. Europe and Japan don't have that one day you need to have things out by because your sales explode. Just ten years ago it wasn't as big a deal as it is now. So unless systems come out in September it will definitely come out in the states first.

Why does everyone assume it's bayonetta that will be in smash?  Why not the main guys from wonderful 101?  They fit in with the nintendo style way more than bayonetta, and can use all their attacks (sword, gun, jello) as B moves?  New IP for smash, exclusive to nintendo systems, and would fit the smash style perfectly.
