Nintendo Free Radio 25: Lights Of Death

Posted on October 24th, 2013

We come not to bury the 360 and PS3... well, most of us, anyway. 

Hur-RAY, hur-RAY, hur-RAY, step right up and get your Nintendo Free Radio on for the 25th time! (Not actually the 25th episode, but who's counting?) New Business sees Stephen step up for the casuals with a couple of things the others wouldn't touch with a 39.5 foot pole: Windows Phone word game Wordament and Blizzard's new children's card... er, trading card game, Hearthstone. You might have heard of Donald's New Business, since it's the two biggest Nintendo releases of the year to date: Pokemon X (now with live trolling of Kentuckians!) and Wind Waker HD. Austen wraps with PSN's recent downloadable thriller Rain, proves that playing Lost Planet 3 is going beyond the impossible, and finishes with yet another dose of Ellen Page in Beyond: Two Souls. 

Now Posted got intentionally shortened to allow maximum time for Whatcha Watch'n. Stephen gets a little theatrical with Potted Potter and puts MasterChef through several dryer cycles to shrink it down to MasterChef Junior before talking Donald off the ledge over Revolutionary Girl Utena. Austen gives a quick update on Beware the Batman and goes a few episodes into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, but buckle up for extended, spoilery discussions of Transformers Prime now that the show has wrapped with the release of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising. 

For the Feature this time around, we're well aware that there's less than a month until the PS3 and 360 get taken out back and Old Yellered. As such, we look back at our memories of HD goodness and give you some recommendations for games you might have missed - as well as the warts. The Mushrooms bring us in for a landing with musings on a state's bad luck, the usual tribute of a common punching bag, and someone mentioning Beautiful Unique Sparkleponies (not Stephen). 

Did we miss a game in the HD discussion? Want to help Donald through therapy? Let us know in the comments below or send us an email!
