Majora's Mask,FTW!

Marked! Don't have Skype so you'll never likely hear from me unless I just e-mail a soundbyte lol.

Can't wait to hear from you SuperSonic1990, I dunno whether I just don't pay any attention but the only regular I recognised in this podcast was Wiiloveit.



Knux said:

I called the USA number and it says it is incorrect,what's going on?



Knux said:

Good grief,please mods I just want to call.
I even called the UK number and I got a busy signal. Please help!

Nice work James, I loved the focus on download this week.

It was good to hear some reader's voices especially Chicken Brutus. I hope you will be a regular. Was WiiLoveIt putting on a bit of a performance though? I am not sure lol

The best part of the podcast for me had to be James doing an Australian accent. I do hope that Chris sees the funny side there!

Next time on the podcast we'll have to make sure that Corbie gets a slot!!



Knux said:

Ahem..Dazza I can't get reach any of Nintendo Life's numbers,help please?



Corbs said:

Next time on the podcast we'll have to make sure that Corbie gets a slot!!

Please don't do that to our readers.



Knux said:

Corbie there you are I tried to call the Nintendo Life USA number and I couldn't reach your number or the UK number. Help,please?



Dazza said:

@Corbie - Too late, I am already bouncing some ideas around with James for what your special section could be.

So far my best idea is "Corbie's classic shmups" which would be introduced with a special jingle with R-Type sound effects. Each month you would pick a classic shooter to talk about for 2 minutes or so in your fine Texan accent.

Does anyone have any better suggestions for Corbie's podcast slot?



Sean_Aaron said:

James, when's your show on Radio 2, exactly? Great announcer quality there mate!

Oh, and Altered Beast should NOT BE AVOIDED! My god man, after the slagging I took for playing that crap excuse for a 3D shooter, Space Harrier, I cannot understand why there's not video of your effigy being burned for the 3/10!



Kim_Jong-Il said:

Daddy Newts... LOL!
And I loved the voice you did for Drake's review.
Oh, and I would just like to clear up that I do not think this is a bad podcast, and you have a great radio voice. But I LOL'd when I heard those^^ bits.



pixelman said:

Nice podcast. Great to hear Chicken Brutus. Corbie needs to talk about the number 7. Or 7 games. Or 7 somethings.



Objection said:

Por Supersonic etting ignored above...I plan to Skype and get a lil of me in episode 6.

My nickname has been turtle since i was 13, glad to hear you love my kind wiiloveit.



James said:

SuperSonic1990 - Skype isn't the only way to do it. Just ring 442081448216 and you should be able to get through. I haven't tried it from the US but that number should work fine.

By the way, what about the voice I did for Drake's review? That was my voice! Sorry about my accent for Chris's comments though - it sounded a lot better in my head, whereas on-air it sounds like a strangled Murray from Flight of the Conchords...

I'd welcome Corbie's input into the next episode - a classic shmups section would be good, possibly even a "live report" as he plays a super-difficult shooter LIVE on-air!

Keep those Skype calls and voicemails coming in - if I get enough I'll try to do a special community podcast before the 27th of July!



Corbs said:

Anyone that can work in the word "Usurped" gets my vote.
Another brilliant job on the podcast James.



Corbs said:

I don't think you could pretend that didn't happen if your life depended on it.



James said:

@Wiiloveit - I'll erase your contribution if everyone agrees to forget my "Australian" accent!

TOIGER WOODS! So ashamed...



calculon said:

How's about doing a regular feature for Corbie: Seven of the Best

Each week Corbie goes through seven games from one of the major platforms (DS, WiiWare, etc) and can fine-grain further (shmups, platformers). Maybe even do a Seven of the Best to Come or 'Seven of the Rest: The Best Games That Won't Arrive on VC'

Maybe even 'Seven of the Worst Comments' at least then I'll get a mention - five times



Chunky_Droid said:

I'll give you guys a real Aussie accent!

I really need to change this flag, lol.

Corbie's feature needs to be "Corb's Room: It's Better Than Yours and Here's Why"



Knux said:

Thanks for the number,I will call that number soon...
If you guys want a Texas accent,I have the best one!
