As usual we kick off with a look at our pretty eclectic lists recently played games. James puts more time into getting Another Metroid 2 Remake to run on his Mac than actually playing it, Danny explores the galaxy in No Man’s Sky, Ty delves deep into his inner psychosis and Xbox library with Silent Hill 2 while Sairus tries out the Skullgirls Mobile beta.

Moving swiftly on we cover the scant news this week with some Dragon Quest NX “details” and the Prime Minister of Japan’s wacky appearance at the Rio Olympics. That leads nicely into a later segment of Life in Japan and reader feedback as we answer mail about how Japan is gearing up for the Olympics in 2020.

In a special segment, James hosts the inaugural interactive Famicast quiz! Those that caught the show as it was recorded live were actually able to join the online quiz as it happened, but feel free to tally up the score on your own to play along while you listen! Let us know how you did in the comments!

Hi everyone!
Looking for that link to the quiz I talked about on the show?
I got ya back: boom
Load it up and play it in sync with us as you listen on the podcast, then tell us how you did on Twitter.
Surely you did better than Sairus?

Any topic ideas for future quizzes, let us know and we guarantee * we will make it happen!

I hated No man's Sky, I'd had hope it would be the space game I've been waiting for so long, but no, it's just a 2-hour long (playable for 2 hours, which was pretty fun for 2 hours) but then its just a redundant Minecraft clone.
Plus no multiplayer know and the framerate on a 8gb ram computer is unacceptable.
