This week we start with a look at Nintendo's flagging Card business. It's a worrying trend, and without significant change this could rapidly get out of control.

We also answer a couple emails: has the time to revive an IP come and gone and what is the best movie from the late Sean Connery. You can send us your question here.

After a break we dig into some New Business.

Guillaume: Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2, Moving Out, Part-Time UFO

Greg: Wallachia: Reign of Dracula

Reminder! We have our episode 700 live show on November 21 at 2:00 PM Eastern. Join us at NWR! Link to come soon.

Kind of surprised that James didn't know that East Asian countries use myriads or 10,000 to group numbers, which is why sales are reported as 46 10,000's not 460 1,000's.  I thought they converted to 1,000's in the English report though.

I'm vaguely familiar with the concept. But Nintendo is inconsistent about it. And they don't usually convert in English language release.

You're right, they used myriads in previous reports.  This both reinforces my surprise that you were unfamiliar with the concept and my concern that I missed it reading previous financial reports.  I must of just naturally converted it, its not like dealing with crore after all.

Moving Out is really hard. We beat Overcooked 1 & 2 with basically all 3 stars, but never got a single gold medal in Moving Out. We managed to reach the credits and it's a decent game, but a long way off being as engaging or addictive as Overcooked.

Yeah, ultimately we had no desire to push through the end game and we definitely couldn't see a way to get a gold anywhere.

And the "arcade" levels you unlock by doing the side objectives? We tried a single one of those, and oof.
