No Freetime Radio

A Podcast about Gaming from the fine Forummers over at NintendoWorldReport.

Terranigma: The Lost SNES Classic

Posted by nintendofreeradio in Telethon Recordings

The final episode recorded under less than ideal circumstances (in taping order).

For the sixth time, we were honored with the chance to record a segment for the NWR Live Telethon for Child's Play. The donation box may have closed, but this year we managed to raise $6200 in support of a great cause: the children.

On this year's show, Donald, Stephen and Austen had all played or seen through most of the lost (to North Americans) SNES game Terranigma. Why didn't it cross from Europe? How many drinks did the translators have? Why is Bloody Mary such a...? All this and more await.

The remaining audio from the telethon - in which Donald had no less than three segments and a trainwreck - can be found at Nintendo World Report.

NFR Presents: Finding The Best Nintendo RPG System Ever

Posted by nintendofreeradio in Telethon Recordings

It was a wild and woolly Saturday evening as Nintendo World Report raised over $4,000 for Child's Play and we got to work with our friends at RPGamer - Chris and Anna Marie Privitere - to determine the best Nintendo system for RPGs ever. This recording is the result.

There were laughs, tears and the birth of a new, probably offensive analogy. A grand time was had by all. And yes, we worked a little blue as well.

Special thanks to James Jones for running the audio recording for this and keeping it straight for thirteen and a half hours. If you haven't chipped in yet, the donation box will be open until Saturday.

NFR Special: The Start Tank

Posted by nintendofreeradio in Telethon Recordings

When left to their own devices, Nintendo Free Radio can sometimes make magic. This is one of those days.

For the third year in a row, we were proud to do it live for the kids. Our original concept was to check out a few Kickstarters and see if they would be worth backing, with the help of Robert Boyd of Zeboyd Games, a Kickstarter veteran and observer.

The best laid plans went astray, and we only got to do one of them. But that's fine, since the questions asked provided enough information that you can be more informed when looking at these projects on your own.

As of press time, we've raised $6,135 for Child's Play, and there's still time to donate if you're seeing this before November 15. And Donald's thrown out a stretch goal beyond what's on the page, so GET DONATING if you haven't already!

Special thanks to Karl Castenada for getting this show out so quickly. We are presenting the show as it was heard live, which includes Skype being itself.

NFR Special: The 3DS Report Card

Posted by nintendofreeradio in Nintendo Free Radio, Telethon Recordings

Recorded live for the kids, it's a very special edition of Nintendo Free Radio!

Thanks to the efforts of you guys, Nintendo World Report has raised nearly $7200 for Child's Play and as a result, we got to talk 3DS with you and Nintendo World Report director Neal Ronaghan for nearly an hour this weekend!

You can still donate until November 30, so get moving if you haven't already!

Topics of discussion include how awesome was the 3DS (so awesome), nasty trivia questions, and... My Little Baby 3D. No, we're not making that up. And it's not the sole reason this show isn't suitable for all ages, surprisingly.

Also, we are still talking Earthbound next show - but you now have until the weekend of December 7 to send us your memories and thoughts. So get cracking!
