Nintendo Free Radio 80: Monster Setsuna Sessions

Posted by nintendofreeradio in Episode 80

The reasons for the long delay are... complex.

Following an unexpected summer hiatus due to various moving related concerns, Nintendo Free Radio has returned. And as befitting the first episode following E3, it's a massive New Business segment. Stephen's visiting arcades, then cursing the lack of Farfetch'd outside of Asia in Pokémon Go. (This is all prior to the update that made the game LITERALLY UNPLAYABLE, by the way.) Following a long session of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Stephen brings it home with Monster Hunter Generations. Donald grabs the portable baton and tries (badly) to talk Austen off the ledge over Zero Time Dilemma (if you want spoilers, we have that covered), then settles into a three week Fire Emblem Fates bender that covers all three paths. But the main event is the Non-Spite Game of the Year, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Austen tries to stay cool in the Florida heat with I Am Setsuna, but he did play Mighty No 9 as well. Find out if it's better than nothing. New Business wraps with extended impressions of a shooter that released in May... we're talking about Battleborn, of course. What did you think he played? Oh, that one. It comes up too.

Whatcha Watchin' sees Stephen investigate CBS drama in Person of Interest, before Austen checks out a couple of movies that made a lot of bloody money in China: Warcraft and Batman v Superman before swearing fealty to an Empire of Corpses. Donald lost his damn fool mind sometime around Canada Day, and the result is his contribution to WW: Yuri Kuma Arashi. All you need to know is the localized title would be "Lesbian Bear Storm". The crew then forgoes the feature and hits the Mushrooms which include moving, court proceedings and a pointed rant about a Canadian shipping company.

Next time - whenever that is, for reasons that will become clear at the end of the episode - we will try to handle the top 5 games we're excited for the rest of the year. If you have a list, send it to us by the usual methods (Twitter, email, or leave it below).
