It is the morning after. The morning after a seemly dismal Nintendo E3 performance. You would think that Nintendo’s showcase from their Digital Event was worse than that of their press conference in 2008. You would think that Nintendo showed nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing cute, nothing worth playing, but that is simply not true.

Nintendo’s E3 press conferences always confuse me. I’m not the type of person that gets mad when they show things like Wii Fit U or SiNG (this make me think of CiNG and it makes me sad that Nintendo didn’t buy them when they went bankrupt). I just want there to be a better balance to what is showcased during the actual press conference. Something that could help address this issue is by fixing another issue I have, time management. Nintendo E3 press conferences usually have very slow speech, long pauses and Matryoshka dolls worth of introductions. Continue reading

With the addition of game downloads to Club Nintendo I feel like its finally something to pay attention to. I’ve enjoyed the rewards for the most part but getting a extra game for buying games I’m going to get anyway is the best reward. Plus at 100 coins it couldn’t be easier. I personally just knocked out 20 post play surveys to pick these two Game Boy classics up which took about 20 mins. If you want these two titles or Cubello which is up for the same price you better hurry. The offer expires March 31st.
This is the perfect video to show you the garbage that still exists in this otherwise awesome game. I’ve played over 60 hours of Mario Kart 7 so far and still, every online match I play there’s always someone repeatedly picking this level to cheat. It’s a shame because the lap you skip is a lot of fun but if you don’t cheat you’ll finish dead last every time and lose points. I hope that Nintendo fixes this issue soon. I also hope they don’t say anything either so all the cheaters lose a few matches before they figure it out.
I want to apologize to all our listeners for our show taking a two month break. It wasn’t planned and unfortunately, couldn’t be helped. As always, thank you so much for continuing to listen. There were many games to discuss in this episode and felt good after a slow year. One of the games we discussed was Mario Kart 7 and the creation of the Wii Are Fanboys community. Above is the search code for our community. If you would like to download the show click HERE and I hope to race all of you soon.
