Nintendo Free Radio 85: Tales of the Bandwidth Impaired

Posted by nintendofreeradio in Episode 85

Just watch out for a stray episode of This Week In Baseball.

(Note: Due to a mishap possibly involving the Large Hadron Collider, Stephen's audio was not salvageable for New Business. We do apologize for the inconvenience and would like to congratulate Stephen on beating Monster Hunter Generations.)

It's been another wacky few weeks for the Nintendo Free Radio crew, but they're back to lay down gaming and pop culture jocularity. Donald ended up opening New Business with Exist Archive, the Fogarty-class self-plagarism of Valkyrie Profile, before getting his stylus on in Severed (Wii U) and some review games. Plus a game we'd really rather not talk about. Austen pulled in some recent indie darlings of the PlayStation 4 with Seraph and Aragami, and following the latest sordid tales of the shooter realm finishes with the long awaited Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter.

Stephen enters for Whatcha Watchin' with the newly relocated Supergirl, and following the superhero discussion Donald interjects with British comedy panel show Mock the Week and a very rare dub of a mid-90s Fire Emblem anime. And since it was before any of the games got localized or Smash Bros. made them famous, there's some interesting naming going on. (The full show can be viewed on Youtube.) Austen pays off a Kickstarter from early in the year as he provides a counterbalancing view of Vision of Escaflowne.

The Feature discussion is a breakdown of the officially known information about the Nintendo Switch. Who's in? Will storage be a concern? Why the bloody hell do companies use .wav on shipping product? In the Mushrooms, we slam PSN and Xbox Live while celebrating the removal of a milstone and facepalming heavily about onesies with pockets for melee weapons and Doritos.

The next episode might be 86, but it's also going to be recorded around the US Thanksgiving. And with that, we'd like to know what YOU'RE thankful for in a year that some people on the show have wanted to declare non-canon. Email, tweet or hit us up below and we'll make sure to enter it into the record for the next show!

This podcast was recorded on November 6 and was edited by Donald Theriault.
