Episode 87: Time and Space
« on: May 24, 2013, 11:37:05 PM »

Nintendo Direct and Xbox One reactions, a rocket quiz, and the Doctor Who finale recap!

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/connectivity/34325

Welcome to episode 87 of Connectivity, or as we are calling it, "Episode One." Hope there is no confusion with the actual episode one from two years ago, but this is the true "Episode One." Because it's the only "One" you'll need! That is, until it is obsolete and we move on to the next iteration. Then it is "One" for the dump or the back of your closet somewhere.

If you hadn't guessed, our main segment this week deals with the announcement of the Xbox One as well as last week's Nintendo Direct. Scott, Neal, and special guest Donald Theriault (from Nintendo Free Radio!) break down both events and look ahead to E3 and more dog gifs.

After that, we have two bonus segments for you. First up is the return of The Dr. Jonathan Metts' Crazy Fun Time Space Show! This week, in lieu of answering questions from you fine listeners, Dr. Metts has me take a quiz about rockets he wrote years ago for a sophomore college class he was teaching. If you'd like to play along at home and see just how much YOU know about rockets, the quiz can be found here. 

Bonus segment number two is all about the season finale of Doctor Who. Patrick, Scott, Nicholas, and Amanda return to discuss the wacky Doctor's latest exploits and postulate about what the final few minutes mean for the future of Who. SPOILER WARNING!!! Also, be sure to check out Amanda's portfolio for plenty of excellent Doctor Who inspired art AND check out Nicholas' excellent Doctor Who shorts he recorded with some friends. He's the best Doctor of them all.

That's it for this week! Click here to send us some listener mail. What did you think about the Xbox One announcement? What it does it mean for the future of the Wii U? Tell us what you think! See you next week for Episode 88, or "Episode 2"!

I thought Sonic Colo(u)rs on the Wii was a good game. Damn good, actually. (You may notice that I haven't even used the modifier "for a Sonic game")

I've only one-hundred percented two other Sonic games (the original Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Advance), but this is the only one where I've felt truly compelled to do so. It was enjoyable and surprisingly addicting. You don't have quite the amount of control over Sonic that you do over someone like Mario, but I didn't find that it was ever a big issue. As a result, I found the challenge to be fair. The music is also a vast improvement over most previous 3D Sonic games.

Worth checking out.

I actually NEVER TOOK A PHYSICS CLASS either in High School or College, because I thought it would be mind numbing complex and/or boring. I did enjoy the discussion, but I had no clue what they were talking about, to say the least Jonny is a fucken brilliant and deserves his PHD.


I took Astronomy and Geology , ironically geology was better because the professor was pretty cool and interesting and Astronomy had this russian woman who had a horrible accent and got angry at you for interrupting her whenever you asked questions.

I am a big Nintendo fan as well as involved in the space industry from the regulatory side.  So I enjoy hearing about rocket mechanics on the podcast.


Jonathan, if you know Luke or other people at Scaled please remind them to be safe.  We are worried about them.  We don't want to have to go back there.

But Connectivity, I play NSMB games in four players!





Fortune Street is great. Also online play. Square does what Nintendon't.

Also great space segment as usual.

i honestly think nintendo could benefit from buying out sega, if anything for some extra development teams.
