Nick is back this week to finish up our WiiWare feature, and Lindy returns as well with news that he's been playing... Nintendo games?!?  So have the rest of us, although James and Jonny are still a little high on their recent 360 purchases.    


We trimmed the show down to just two segments this week: New Business and the WiiWare Round-up (Part Two).  But perhaps due to the expanded crew, the episode ended up running just as long as last week.  We need to give poor James a break from these marathon sessions!  Oh well, his pain = your gain.  Expect another Listener Mail session next week, and send in your questions/comments now to make the deadline.  You know the address!  (Or, you can click here and choose RFN from the list to send us email.)

For some reason the mp3 subscription doesn't work for me (iTunes does). Thanks for getting it done James, been checking all day. Now I have something to listen to while I work out. :D

I hope everyone on the podcast (except Greg) checks out Braid.

I got Braid a few days back, but I haven't played it yet.  Just for the hell of it I decided to sit down and put some time into Bioshock.

I played Braid last night and it is definitely a unique game. Not sure I am in the "its great" thought patterns but it is a good game.

fantastic episode guys.

I LOL at the bird warning you  and angry videogame nerd reference.

I listened as I painted my moms laundry room so it helped pass the time. (damn corners everywhere)

You guys missed out on "Animales de la Muerte" from High Voltage Software in your Wiiware discussion.

That is probably one of my highest hyped games for wiiware, if not for the Wii. It looks crazy and so much fun and uses wii controls in smart way. I can't wait to play co-op with a friend this will be a blast.

overall podcast I give a 9/10

No mailbag, and no mention of this keeps it from 10 but keep it up.

I wanna hear about Lindy's Bioshock impressions in episode eleventy first too. (BTW, I have no problem in non-Nintendo content in New Business, or even non-videogame content as long as it isn't to the exclusion of new Nintendo business)

Thanks to a WiiWare gift, you will also be hearing me talk about Toki Tori on the next episode.

Jonny, I wanted to say to not waste your time getting me to buy GWII :). I didn't like the first game and I doubt I'll like this one!

He's just depressed that he can't play Geo Wars 2.....as am I.

Good episode I think. I liked the work Nick did in the episode and the setup was good.  James was a valuable player in this one because he was pretty damn funny.

And ya I really like 360 achievements and would love to see something similar on Wii. It would be possible with the space on the hard drive and a new channel.

You all sounded a little burned out (especially Jonny). You should cut back the episodes a bit if 2 hours sessions are starting to get to you.

Good episode overall. Anticipating an interesting Braid discussion next episode. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. :D

All this talk of Space Invaders Extreme even has me wanting it!  However, I'm interested in the paddle thing but everywhere I look it's 50 bucks. Where are you guys getting it from?

I haven't noticed that while listening to 110, but we all felt (especially James) that the last couple of episodes were too long.  It comes down to planning: first we had three full segments, then we had five people on the show.  We made a concerted effort to make the next one more terse, and it is.  Should clock in at around 1:45... hardly short, but closer to the average length and hopefully less taxing on our beloved editor.

Wow... Someone who has never read Watchmen before!

Now you're going to think that upcoming film will completely suck. :P

Chokin' the Chocobo!

So that's what Greg is doing over there when he's so quiet.

I wish I would have read this thread before we did the this week's episode (already in the can), because I would have talked about Bioshock some more.  I'm trying to steer away from being so heavy on the 360/PS3 discussion lately.

My Bioshock thoughts: excellent art design, great story, but only decent gameplay.  I mean, it's solid, don't get me wrong, but it gets old after a while.  You only fight a small range of enemies, and you don't even need to use more than half of the Plasmids that you get.  It reminds me of Twilight Princess in that regard, how you gain the advanced sword skills near the end and have no reason to use them whatsoever.

I'm also on the fence about the audio journals.  I can't put my finger on it, but they somehow feel like a cop-out, like a quick and dirty way to tell the backstory of Rapture.  Like instead of cutscenes they just give you these audio journals to tell the story.

I like Bioshock, but I don't LOVE Bioshock.  I place it in the "good not great" category, which seems like heresy based on the amount of hype it received at release.

That's a well reasoned impression of Bioshock and is similar to my feelings.
