No Freetime Radio

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

Nintendo Free Radio 30: Because Japan

Posted on February 14th, 2014

Ecchi, grinding and tanuki – just another episode from the Land of the Rising Sun 

As the post-Christmas game drought begins to wind down, let Nintendo Free Radio be your guide through the perils of this little industry of ours. Stephen leads off New Business with impressions of the game that unleashed Kickstarter on the world, Broken Age before getting his cheap tower defense on in PixelJunk Monsters HD… and given his television preferences, it’s no surprise that he also picked up eShop food service sim Brunch Panic. Donald, having only now gotten over a long cold, had no choice but to see… Dr. Luigi! Also, he attempts to make Austen sick by talking Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on behalf of the Anti-Social Gamers of North America. Austen counters with the power of broken street dates with Tomb Raider: Enhanced Edition and folklore by looking at the DLC for Muramasa Rebirth before wrapping with impressions of the FFXIII: Lightning Returns demo that include some content that may have jacked up the ESRB rating. 

Following the insanity and possible quality content of Now Posted, Donald opens Whatcha Watchin with a Price is Right episode that hits a little close to home for one member of the team, followed by a trip to the Danger Zone with Archer. Stephen demonstrates the danger of letting Netflix pick anime for you as he hits in sequence Welcome to the NHK, Heaven’s Lost Property and Okami-san And Her Seven Companions, while Austen knocks Clannad, Good Luck Girl! and Hunger Games: Catching Fire off the backlog. 

This time around, the Feature is the impending tidal wave of games that will both amaze and bankrupt you. The crew gives predictions for what will actually sell and what will end up in a bomba bin by Memorial Day, and someone has apparently developed an immunity to the stupid naming conventions of the Atelier series. In the Mushrooms we mourn the passing of Justin “JewWario” Carmichael and net neutrality, among other topics.

Editor's Note: My Apologies for the late episode. It's been a rough last few weeks.
