Like usual, i stayed for the first 20 minutes. Great podcast though. I have to say though, i now have a huge feeling for what the 3DS' 3D would look like. When the slider is in, it looks like a DS game. when out, the background will drop back, like what Corbie said, but the foreground will pop out and move a bit up. A bit confusing if your reading this though. Anyway, Zelda and DQ ftw!

I spent my lunch-break listening to James and Corbie chat about games. Perfect.

Thank uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

I don't have time to listen so could someone post the winners in the comments please? Just make sure you give a spoiler warning because many people probably want to listen to it to find out.

EDIT: Well, actually I'm on vacation and only have my iTouch for Internet... So I can't litsten.

James said:

@edhe That's strange, I see we're listed on iTunes but the previous episodes aren't showing up. I'll look into it.



moomoo said:

DK won? :/ Didn't exactly get that idea from every one else's opinions. I was thinking Kirby would win.
And no love for Epic Mickey?

this is my first time listening to the podcast and i didn't know that prosody is James newton.



jangonov said:

This is the first one I think I have listened to. Prosody, Even though I saw the little UK flag, I was not expecting the accent. Then again, I am American. I suppose I have the accent. Great show though! I will subscribe on iTunes as soon as I get my laptop back from repairs.

Any chance you guys could cut the music when you're talking? I find it to be very distracting. Also, you're doing a great job but I think a non-scripted discussion section could make the podcast more interesting. Get a couple of NL staff and a couple of members and then just run through a list of discussion points, I think that'd work great. And all you need to do it is Skype....



Homer_Simpson said:

Yeah, and it was the most interesting part of the podcast. It was more of an interview than a discussion though, what I'm suggesting is to get several NL staff and users to participate in a structured discussion of recent Nintendo news. I've had experience running podcasts before, if you get the right mix of people it can make for a really entertaining listen.
This is just a suggestion though of course, you guys are doing a fantastic job as is but I can't help but think a disussion section could really add to the podcast..



y2josh said:

I agree, Homer J. It's great already, but discussions with about 4 people who know their stuff are pretty sweet



Corbs said:

Ah that would be fun. Definitely something to consider for future podcasts.



Zach said:

(Whisper whisper... I thought Zach's part wasn't too bad either...)

What? Who said that? Well, whoever it was, thank you!



Corbs said:

I'm with Sean. Loving the bits each podcast Zach. Keep 'em coming!

i want a gamecube mario strikers for 3DS... just throwing that out there. you also didnt mention how the 3D looks when you tilt it like a wiimote steering wheel. because remember the 3DS has a motion sensor so games might support tilting, but with the 3D effect in account, these things might be an issue. i think the name might be changed so people arent expected to have EVERY game with 3D support.

I don't know if I'd be ready to shell out $300 for the 3DS. Then again I haven't actually seen it yet so its hard to say...
