Boom! Although a bit belated, another Famicast is here to soothe your soul. As always, the guys start out with New Business as Danny and Matt both talk about some recent Final Fantasy titles and Ty gives us the lowdown on fighting games and more.

After the news, the Famicrew opens up some dialog about the soon to be released Tomodachi Life and the controversy that surrounded the game earlier last month. After receiving an anonymous email about the topic, the guys thought it would be interesting to give you a break down (to the best of their ability) of Japanese thoughts on same sex relationships and what it means in relation to Tomodachi Life. Be sure to listen in on this engaging discussion!

As always, if you have any questions or thoughts about the show, you can hit us up in the Talkback thread below, tweet at us at our official Twitter handle, @thefamicast, send an email to famicast@nintendoworldreport.com or visit the Questions for the NWR Japan Crew forum thread. We hope you enjoy the episode! Famicast a go-go, baby!

that's... kinda a sad episode title unintentionally... Like Ty Shughart is his last friend in the whole world... Minoru is too busy playing Dark Souls, and James has all his time taken up by living the deathtrap that is the salaryman's life. When Danny Bivens realizes that he will hear about nothing but Killer instinct 3 for the rest of his lonely life, he has to chose between asking Matt Walker to cut his life short or if he's willing to carry that friendship.

Next time on Famicast; Session 36: FINAL TOMODACHI. See Ya 'round, space cowboy...


Clex, I think you just nailed the story of my life.  :P:

But enough about my lonely life already! I'm sure you guys out there can recognize a lot of the tunes placed between the segments. The game I was playing for new business kind of influenced the selection. At any rate, here are the songs that I used there:

1 - Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest - Battle Music
2 - Final Fantasy III (NES) - Sylx Tower
3 - Final Fantasy IV - Battle Theme
4 - Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Caravan Crossroads
5 - Final Fantasy IX - World Map theme
6 - Final Fantasy VII - Rap Remix

Enjoy the show and have a good month, guys!
