Whelp, this podcast got long somehow. I wonder if it has anything to do with that Mario Kart thing? Maybe. We empty the bench this week with a crew of six to talk about Kirby, Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, EarthBound, Konami Classics, Danganronpa and, of course, Mario Kart 8 (see what I did there?). Then we hit on what little pre-E3 news would could dig up and finish with a few emails, one of which is rather epic. Will the Bullet Witch streak live on? Find out, if you dare.

After years of hounding, Nintendo has finally listened. During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation they announced that Earthbound will be making it’s way to North America and Europe. It will be heading to the Wii U Virtual Console sometime before the end of the year. That’s all we know.
Just understand that it’s coming and, if you’re like me and you’ve never played it, download it immediately to show Nintendo that we’ll put our money where our mouths are.
I give up. I’m never going to catch up with the list of games I want to play. It’s never going to happen. Not if they keep making more awesome games. That doesn’t mean I want them to stop by the way. Assassin’s Creed 3 was just announced and I still haven’t played Assassin’s Creed 2 yet. Not Revelations, not Brotherhood, but Assassin’s Creed 2; the one after the first one. I’m three games behind! And yet I am only one number behind… how’s that work?
Most people refer to their backlog of games as a “pile of shame” but I can’t even say that since I don’t even own most of the games I want to play. On one hand it’s better that I haven’t bought a bunch of game and never played them but one the other hand I am not supporting the games I like. What’s a guy to do? If only I didn’t have to pay for silly things like food, a house and electricity. I guess I will have to call it my “list of shame.”
Just a few of the games on my list are Uncharted 3… and Uncharted 2 (sigh), Donkey Kong Country Returns, Dead Rising 2 (plus Off The Record and Case West) and Mario Galaxy 2. I consider those recent games but as you can see, most are over a year old at this point. Now you may be asking Read more…
