The Famicast is back to full strength this week to discuss all things Japan and Nintendo! As usual there’s a lot of ground covered in New Business, with James covering platformers, Ty reaching terrifying heights with achievement hunting, Danny trying out the Monster Hunter Stories demo and Sairus risks serious hand injuries playing Theatrhythm Final Fantasy in arcades. And of course we also have you covered for a discussion on Power Rangers and other Super Sentai franchises in Japan!

The Famicom Mini has also started rolling out around the world, so discussion turns to Nintendo emulation, the eShop and how this device stacks up. There’s also a sampling of Pokémon news hot off the presses!

The show wraps up with a rapid fire Fake or Real, plus a special segment as Ty talks about his recent flirtations with stardom as an extra in an upcoming movie. Could this be his big break? Tune in to find out!

Also, it's that time of year again. Yes! You guessed it! The NWR Child's Play Podcast Telethon! Your favorite Famicrew members will be there with some special guests! For more information on what time you need to tune in and all of that, be sure to visit the telethon article page here.

That title is alllmost as sexy as my avatar!

I apologise to the listeners for that dark first 25 mins, to make up for it, here's my contribution:

7 mins in: masturbation never gets old, that's why.
12 mins in: all I can think of is some Japanese salaryman getting that call at the office and having to lie about who it's from.
18 mins in: I really thought the end of Sairus' story was "and she drove by shouting 'LOSERS' and drenched us all with a giant puddle"

Only one more Famicast episode before NX is totally guaranteed* to be revealed!

Quotes from this episode:

-We could see a little tit bit of news before the investors meeting.
-I'm not saying it'll be a full splurge, just the name and what it looks like, and then a "more to come later".
