Episode 78 - DO A BARREL LOL
« on: April 30, 2016, 03:01:00 AM »

The recent NX megatons, Starfox Zero, a huge dose of Life in Japan, and a Satellaview game. Need more?

The Famicast is back to full strength again with an amazing live recorded episode!  Before diving into New Business, the Famicrew have a special segment talking about Nintendo’s surprisingly flat announcement of the NX, Zelda WiiU and their E3 plans, along with a look at some other notes from the Nintendo Investors Meetings.

New business kicks off with Sairus experiencing the woes of buying supplies for Nintendo Land while James succumbs to commercialism and joins the recent Spongebob Splatfest. Danny covers past and future with playthroughs of both of the oddball Sutte Haken and the brand new Starfox Zero. Ty chimes in with his usual segment on DOOM and Killer Instinct to the general bewilderment of all Famicast listeners.

There wasn’t a whole lot of other news this week but there’s still some healthy discussion on the new multi-region Friends of Nintendo Humble Bundle, yet another new Pokemon Center opening in Japan and the impending release of Kirby: Robobo Planet.

As usual we also take a peek at the sales charts for the week before checking the mailbag. There were some juicy questions this week ranging from integration to Japanese culture and our opinions on VR! It’s good listening, so quit reading and get clicking on either the audio or video versions below!

Hello ferociously friendly Famicast friends!

Some background reading on the episode:

**Japan is No. 102 (out of 145) on the World Giving Index below 3rd world countries like Ethiopia.

**Watch here as a rich Japanese celebrity wins 10 million yen on Millionaire...for himself. What, seriously?
(The last few minutes are funny though because of how long the host waits before declaring right/wrong)

**I listened to the entire Ouendan playlist on YouTube and indeed found all the music to be entirely terrible as I suspected. Although I do admit the stories were amusing, as they are in E.B.A.

By the way Danny I saw "Linda Linda" is part of the Ouendan soundtrack and so now i know why you like it. Also, that's a terrible song (But funny in a karaoke setting)

If you liked all this Japan chat in the episode, send more questions in and we'll tackle them in a future episode!
