General Gaming / Sony's skipping E3. Again.
« on: January 13, 2020, 06:09:22 PM »

"After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020," said a Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesperson. "We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year."

Remind me again why this show continues to exist?

The only thing missing from this momentous episode is a Brass Bonanza.

Somehow, against all logic, we've reached 100 episodes of Nintendo Free Radio. So it's roundabout time for some changes. In New Business, it's a group chat as for Mushroom-related reasons all three members of the team snagged SNES Classics, and between them managed to play a full third of the lineup. Donald picks up with Culdcept Revolt on the 3DS, before Stephen tries his hand at virtual head formation and also busts out the Super Scope VR... er, the Farpoint controller. Austen's big ones for this episode are the last Microsoft published title not to be loot boxed to hell in Cuphead, and in time for Dishonored Halloween his return to the world of Dishonored 2.

Whatcha Watchin' serves as a nice summary of our collective tastes. Stephen brings the sci-fi with Seth MacFarlane's Orville, which should probably last a bit longer than every show Fox greenlit between cancelling and reinstating Family Guy. Austen goes superheroic with Best Picture nominee Wonder Woman, while Donald represents the anime faction with a few rounds of Code Geass.

The Feature discussion is two parts, as we are keeping the show going under a new name that you'll probably see on our Twitter account, before doing the traditional look back at some of the highs and lows of production. Even the Mushrooms have a theme, as traditional punching bags of trade shows, Square Enix and recent foe Amazon come around for a good pillorying along with the continued ineptitude of PlayStation Network (seventy bucks a year!).

We'll be back with you soon and will let you know when the address change goes through, but for now we'll forward all the mail sent to the old address.

This podcast was recorded on October 2 and was edited by Donald Theriault.

After this month, we've fully banned "Rock You Like a Hurricane".

The Great One episode of Nintendo Free Radio has quite a bit packed into two and a half hours or so. In New Business, Stephen kept pecking away at the Monster Hunter Stories demo - did we mention this thing is LONG? - but we're not sure if he took the plunge. Maybe the Zelda DLC will help. Donald grabbed the demo for Project Octopath Traveler as well as the second good Metroid game of this decade (or ever) in Metroid: Samus Returns. Austen has some brief mentions including blatant Square selling out (because none of their games are) before dealing with the double main event of Life is Strange: Before the Storm episode 1 and the dreaded Knack 2. Thanks to the Nine Network for adding those bits to Donald's hard drive.

Whatcha Watchin' covers the Netflix Voltron season 3, with a pitstop at the end of modern Ninja Turtles, before Austen castigates bad casting in Batman v Harley Quinn and violates about twenty copyrights when he visits Big O. Billion dollar debts not included, but probable in that universe.

The Feature sort of got rolled into the Mushrooms as we encourage you to donate to a quality organization to help Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which are still completely without power as of press time and has a member of the NWR fora living in the former. Also covered: The passing of The Brain, debates over the All-22 film, and Nintendo being Doomed this Christmas.

Some big changes are coming to the podcast after the next episode, so keep it locked to our Twitter feed for updates as well as to send suggestions for things to discuss on said episode. If you can't keep it to 14... sorry, 280 characters and need a bit more space to breathe, then drop us an email or leave it here. Either way, we want to hear from you one more time.

We think they got out without needing deprogramming.

The latest edition of Nintendo Free Radio has a lot of cults involved in it. For New Business, Stephen covered off the Monster Hunter Stories demo, before Donald leapt in with the Danganronpa V3 demo and after a brief stop in Gunvolt land (review available here) he wrapped by taking one for the team and injecting himself with Sonic Mania. Austen shows determination in going through spoiler-free on Undertale, but the same can't be said for Dave Bautista Presents Guardians of the Galaxy by Telltale. His closer is a bit of a deeper dive into FFXII: The Zodiac Age for his 150th Platinum.

Whatcha Watchin' is heavy on the reimaginings. Donald talks the recently released Death Note (Netflix US based crap version), while Stephen is catching up on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2010s). Austen's life might be in a hurricane right now, but before that he headed over to Duckburg to check out the new version of Ducktales before grinding for love in Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In Dungeons?.

After a quick Feature covering Gamescom and another recent news of import, it's off to the Mushrooms for some retail pillorying between the SNES Classic preorder gong show and Amazon messing with Prime on the worst possible day. Also touched on: Stephen's new transportation, and Disney World nerdery.

We're one episode away from 100, and because of Irma there's likely going to be an extra week+ of lead time for 99, so let us know if there's something you want us to discuss.

An apt description of Pyre's game, if you add an equal sign.

A very brief summer doldrums edition of Nintendo Free Radio awaits this week as we don't even clear the two hour barrier. But it's packed with action. New Business is mostly Donald to start as he gives a quick Splatoon 2 update before rolling into Ever Oasis and Monster Hunter Stories's demo (full impressions here) as the 3DS lives despite some people's best efforts. Austen talks visual novel/NBA Jam hybrid Pyre - it'll make sense - and after some quick updates wraps the segment with permadeath faker Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

Whatcha' Watchin comes close to a Donald Sports-Ent Minute with GLOW (the 2017 Netflix show, not the promotion itself), before Austen runs wild on Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders and the first season of the groin-grabbingly popular anime My Hero Academia. Then it's straight into the Mushrooms as we call out Telltale, celebrate Kickstarters, and Donald transitions from on severance to on vacation. And for the record, Agents of Mayhem's review embargo was midnight Pacific time on the 15th (so after it launched), and the best price we've seen in the interim is $43.74 on WinGamesStore for the PC version.

We try to stay positive in this Nintendo Free Radio... well, two of us anyway. New Business opens as Stephen breaks the glass on lords management with League of Legends before a freshly-unemployed Donald debates applying to work at Grizzco in Splatoon 2. After some hardware impressions of what in a just world would be that hot Liquid Metal Slime 2DSXL, we get medieval (and other time periods) on Fate:Extella. Austen provides updates on Injustice 2 and Prey as well as the most insane of speedruns, while also chatting about Sundered.

Whatcha Watchin
' gets real dark. Stephen brought Valerian while Donald and Austen tag team Castlevania and Donald didn't actually mind Rogue One. But Stephen brought the most horrifying film of the year, with an 8% rating on Metacritic that not even Langrisser could touch. We speak of course, of... The Emoji Movie.

The Feature tries to stay positive with the yearly countdown of games we're hyped for, though the team finds itself on the same wavelength for a long time. The Mushrooms pay tribute to titans of animation and figure out how to borrow when you're a third of a Gates in the hole, while Donald is so mad at the world he forgot to do the paper toss at the end.

The mailbox is barren - please to be filling it. And don't forget our @ replies, either.

A lot has changed since we recorded the show, and just getting it together was a beast, but due to various circumstances it's another NFR out the door. Stephen opens New Business with some VR chat and wondering what the hell happened to Skype, before seguing into a doubleheader of Borderlands games. Donald goes from Worst Character to a candidate for Worst Game in Valkyria Revolution, then finds something more to his tastes with Tokyo Xanadu and FFXII: The Zodiac Age. (Given his username on a different, more prominent message board, this was basically inevitable.) Austen wraps up with Tokyo Mirage Sessions, then after a brief Crash landing hits noted May success story Injustice 2 and noted May bomba Prey (2017). Space lesbians not included, we saved those for the next segment.

Whatcha Watchin
features a long superhero block, then moves into chat about Doctor Who's latest coin flip landing on tails for once. Finally, we wrap with the hilariously offensive Outlaw Star. As it was a slow news weeks, the Mushrooms replace the feature as we chat SNES Classic, getting stuck in Ohio, and mourn the death of a Hollywood legend.

The next episode (96) is already in the can and should be out soonish, but we would still love to know what you're excited for the rest of this year. Lists can be sent to the usual methods or left below.

Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb, despite the best efforts of the game industry starting from the day after this posts. So Nintendo Free Radio soldiers on. New Business sees Stephen get his rail on with Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, before Donald tags in for weekend 1 impressions from the Arms Testpunch and a portable strategy RPG block. Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and Disgaea 5 Complete all present different slants on the strategy RPG, and all came out within four days proving this business has no imagination. Austen got some role-playing on with Okage: Shadow King, then after a trip to the NBA Playgrounds (where the Mailman still doesn't deliver on Sundays) he finishes with future Switch title RIME.

The back end of the show got weird for Mushroom-discussed reasons, so Whatcha Watchin' got adjusted a bit. Donald deferred on Better Call Saul S2 and Stephen breezed past Logan to get to Lego Batman. Austen rips through most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe before heading over to Britian (Doctor Who), Polynesia (Moana) and a space station filled with crap movies (Mystery Science Theater 3000, both original and Kickstarter-powered revival).

The Feature discussion is the gaming industry's biggest millstone, E3. With the transition to PAX Southwest in progress, there's predictions ahoy - plus late breaking discussion of Nintendo's online service. The Mushrooms are heavy on the Poison, with special dispensation to Stephen's former AV program, Donald's most dreaded news story, and Square Enix. Because it's Square Enix.

The next show will be the E3 recap show, and if you spot something worth talking about there, sock it to us.

It was a busy few weeks for the NFR crew in the lead-up to the summer, and we're breaking it down for you. Stephen opens New Business with Kaz's Folly, as he made the eye-searing purchase of Playstation VR. Many trials ensued. A very puzzled Donald got it out of his system with Puyo Puyo Tetris before diving into Nier Automata and a pair of pickled Persona: The endgame of 5, and then another crack at 3 Portable (that has since gone on hold for review purposes). Also included: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, because BAAAAAAA. Austen got psychological with Little Nightmares and freaky with Yooka-Laylee, before heading back to the horror house with What Remains of Edith Finch and some quick hits including the first part of the latest Telltale cash grab, Guardians of the Galaxy. This becomes important later.

Whatcha Watchin' sees Stephen keep on the VR train as it also serves as a 3D movie device before he tag teams the #1 movie in the country (on the weekend of its release), Dave Bautista's Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Austen then gets a little sacreligious with Noragami Aragoto and Sunday Without God before redeeming himself with Quantum Leap.

The Feature discussion is part of a new annual tradition as we look back at the first four months of the year in games and try to guess which won't get the love they deserve, and then turn the cannon the other way to guess the rest of the year of the ignored. In the Mushrooms, we talk New 2DS, bonuses, and why The Witcher 3 can jump off a cliff.

Next episode is the final Nintendo Free Radio E3 prediction show, and we want to know what you think will happen with the Nintendo Spotlight and the other overly long company dog and pony shows.

This edition of Nintendo Free Radio is probably going to have a lot of entries for Donald's GOTY list, if we're being honest. For New Business Stephen has played more of Breath of the Wild, including being ready for Ganon, while Donald dropped nearly 90 hours into Persona 5. (The game was completed a couple of days after we recorded, and NWR Patrons have access to a full review.) Austen was also into PS4 RPGs, but his are the nonsensical (Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep) and the retro-inspired (Cosmic Star Heroine) before finishing with Bafmodads 2017, aka Yooka-Laylee. Not included, but desperately needed: Cars.

Whatcha Watchin' has Stephen cover Powerless, and in a sign that the TV industry is run by morons it's already been shelved. Austen has the 2017 Power Rangers movie at the right price, a quick hit on the Steins;Gate movie, and Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th MS Team. Donald meanwhile got caught up in the NHL Playoffs, and apparently he jinxed things because the Leafs ended up losing three straight one-goal games (including two in overtime) while Austen's Jazz advanced in seven to get dealt with in Golden State's fo-fo-fo.

The Feature discussion whips around some news including the recent Nintendo Direct, the death of the NES Classic, the rebirth of Nintendo actually selling things that hook up to a TV, and Microsoft bailing on gaming in the form of Scorpio. The Mushrooms hit streaming restrictions (thankfully relaxed mostly on P5's part), Starcraft Remastered, and the continuing price nosedive of one of 2016's most despised games.

Download (Time: 3:05:27)
Following the stunning release of not one but two Game of the Year shows (you can grab 2015 and 2016 here if you missed them), the editing shabeen went into super lockdown trying to fix this episode of Nintendo Free Radio up. And they almost succeeded. New Business opens with Stephen tackling Starcraft (pre-remaster announcement) before Donald swings in with Austen's inevitable Game of the Year: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. The impressions are early, so no spoilers, but someone's trying something inspired by the initials LKD. Austen doubles back to Horizon: Zero Dawn before hitting some of the backlog including noted bomb Mafia 3 before finishing with four replays worth of Resident Evil 7. (The DLC mentioned, Not A Hero, was delayed on posting day. Go figure.)

Whatcha Watchin' has Stephen and Austen discussing the merits of modern Disney in the context of them swimming in piles of money with Beauty and the Beast 2017, while Donald tries to avoid being left out by breaking the glass of children's card games: Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged is back.

The Feature, extra clippy thanks to Donald's continued rivalry with audio recording software, features the other reason why he's only catching up on Q1 now: PAX East. It was his first con, and possibly the last. The Mushrooms hit the usual suspects - internet witch hunts, retailer idiocy (though Amazon did make good with FREE Take Your Heart editions for those whose orders were cancelled) and the recesses of Stephen's Mushrooms.

Now that this monster has been slain, 92 (hopefully sounding WAY better) will follow shortly behind. If you're looking to get in on the road to 100, hit us up by email, Twitter or the comments below.

It's a rather depressed edition of Nintendo Free Radio delayed by PAX, audio issues, and the need to play some rather large games. Donald opens New Business with a bit of gacha good in Fire Emblem Heroes (still no bought orbs!) before a quick hit into a GOTY. Stephen takes out his "Game He Missed" with Crypt of the Necrodancer before Austen brings it to the break with Gravity Rush 2, the first of two nonsensical Kingdom Hearts collections that released this year, and early impressions of the game ten points worse than Zelda: Horizon Zero Dawn.

Whatcha Watchin' sees Stephen deal with the second largest threat to America again before Austen gets technical with the BluRay release of Quantum Leap and a couple of heroic items in the Lego Batman Movie and Justice Leage Dark. Donald abstained for reasons that will become clear...

...because he was focused on his shiny new (at the time) toy in the Nintendo Switch. Opening weekend impressions are the Feature topic, and those reviews are now available for your perusal. The Mushrooms keep the Switch train rolling with its technical shortcomings and journo poisonings, before Donald sets up the episode title with his weekend from hell. (Donations were appreciated, and most of the games affected have returned in one form or another.)

The feed will be jumping this weekend as not only will 91 be on the air, but a wormhole has opened in the editing bay...
