Nintendo Free Radio 48: Careful Phrasing

Posted on November 27th, 2014

Not just referring to innuendo anymore.

Sick of hearing family or Joe Buck on this Thanksgiving? Drown it all out with some Nintendo Free Radio as the team aims to keep you out of a turkey coma. For New Business, it opens with a mutual admiration society for two of the biggest Nintendo releases - the Mario Kart 8 DLC and Super Smash Bros 4 (Wii U), and extended impressions are provided for both. The plan was for a third mutual game, but the Wolf Among Us discussion spiraled off into its own brief episode. Stephen has a Fantasy Life update, Donald returns to the land of tropical trumpets with Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and Austen has two major PS4 releases in... Little Big Planet 3 and Chariot. (Stop laughing.) Also mentioned: A game that may be worth a lot of money for Donald someday.

In Whatcha Watchin', Stephen has continued down the wild road of Wakfu, keeping other things from his Netflix queue at bay. Donald has been getting his game show gimmicks on with a brief report on Price is Right's Big Money Week and the biggest event of the year in quizzery, the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions. (The full postgame chat Donald mentions can be found here.) Austen has gotten heavy on the CW with more on Arrow, Flash and the not-Dr. Metts-approved The 100, before bringing it home on Big Hero 6.

The Feature topic is a somewhat brief overview of the "next-gen" consoles (PS4 and Xbone) entering Year 2. Someone's cruising, someone's dumping and someone's abstaining - you'll find out who. The Mushrooms feature a return even more unwanted than Denis Dyack's that might get Donald in a boatload of trouble and/or Twitter spam, as well as slamming of Smash and Blizzard love that comes from some rather unusual places.

Next time around is the last regulation episode before Christmas, and we would love to hear from you with holiday memories or plans. Email, tweet or post 'em here, and don't forget to send in ideas for categories you want to see for the Game of the Year show as well.
