It's your December live show people! A change of pace this month as Ty joins JC and Danny for his first live video show to drop his fighting game knowledge all over Smash Wii U! New business is heavily based around Nintendo's big holiday game, with Amiibo, GameCube controllers and adaptors all getting discussed (and shown) in the first segment. How many controllers did Ty end up getting? How about Danny and his Amiibos? Did JC finally get to play his new Wii U? All these questions and more are answered!

The news segment discusses the return of the Zelda orchestral concert, Japan's first Amiibo wave, NFC on 3DS, plus Ty's reactions to Street Fighter 5 on PS4! We also answered your LIVE questions LIVE on the show, received via Google Hangouts and Twitter. Smash Bros fatalities anyone? If you missed it this time, come join us in January for the next LIVE show, LIVE! Did I mention we do this show LIVE once a month?

Please to enjoy the show, and look forward to our next episode recorded in the fictional Famicast studio very soon! Thanks again for the iTunes reviews, keep them coming!

Annual Gift Man approaches....

I really don't think the revelation of KFC is going to be able to get topped, but uh... Here goes.

As I am to understand it, The Japanese tend to take what they like from religions in piecemeal to put together their own theologies. They might have various little Shinto quirks from day to day to try to appease the Kami, but want to have a Christian Wedding and get buried at a Buddhist temple so that the Monks that tend the temple grounds will pray for them every day.

Just how much of Generic Rampant Consumerism-mas is just lost on the mass public? if you were to go visit your local Sushi-Ka who's feet smell of rich, deep vinegar, would he be able to tell me what Jesus Christ's birthday is, or would beads of sweat begin to leak from his Hachimaki as he realizes that he got put on the spot? Also, would he be appreciative that you're giving him Christmas business instead of KFC?
