Episode 85 - TAKE IT BACK
« on: August 10, 2016, 05:09:00 AM »

The Famicrew joins the Japanese public and gets nostalgic.

The Famicrew is back to full strength as James and Sairus return from places unknown just in time to save the Famicast from whatever Danny and Ty got up to in the last episode.

As usual we start the show with a look at what we’ve been playing recently, and this week it’s been a spread of the classics ranging from Metroids to Zeldas to Starfoxes before diving into Ty’s terrifying Xbox backlog. Danny also gives his impressions of the Dragon Quest Live Spectacle Tour, a stage event celebrating the 30th anniversary of Dragon Quest.

In current news there was a smorgasbord of Nintendo treats to choose from, starting with the recent and impending openings of Kirby Cafés across Japan, leading to Pokémon Sun and Moon trying to cash in on that Yo-kai Watch technology and also checking in with the fan made Another Metroid 2 Remake’s launch alongside Metroid’s 30th anniversary.

Before checking out some listener mail and feedback, James takes us down memory lane with a special feature quiz on what we all think are the most "natsukashi" or nostalgic games from Japanese history. Some of our ideas differ quite substantially on what the Japanese public at large thought, so play along at home and see if you fair better than us!

Another reminder, friends of the Famicast, the Nickscast, are going to be part of the upcoming event, The Race Against Time, a 24 hour charity streaming event raising money for Alzheimer's research. It starts on August 13 at 10 am (ET) so be there! For more info, be sure to check out their website here!

Also, be sure to stick around after the show for a special short life in Japan segment with Danny and Josh all about the concert scene here in Japan. Enjoy the episode!

Did you enjoy the quiz? Would you guys be interested in doing it again with the remaining consoles, or did Danny/Ty/Sairus's complete failure put you off?

Read about the meaning of "Myycar" right here
Turns out I was spot on with the meaning. As if there was ever any doubt.
In related news, how the hell are they going to localise YW3 into English?
American boy goes to the strange land of...America, and meets weird, errr, American people and things?
Or maybe they'll just change it to France or something.
I am your (Fami)father.

The quiz? I don't care either way.
Been meaning to ask, what do you guys think about the Olympics coming to Tokyo? Will you go? And how is this going to affect infrastructure in Japan? e.g. more stadiums?
