The guys go through the games they're playing which includes Pikmin 3, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Earthbound, and more. There's also a small discussion regarding the late Hiroshi Yamauchi, Nintendo's former President. The gang discusses what Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club means to them and finally dives into the interesting topic of whether or not changing a genre within a franchise can freshen things up. Do the guys think it's a good idea or a stinky one? Listen to find out. Plus, there's a couple unique game ideas that are a must-listen... /oversell?
As per usual, the theme music comes from Negative World's owner, Zero. The interlude music is from Super Smash Bros. Brawl but specifically the Earthbound tunes in honor of that being a game TheOldManFromZelda has been tackling!
Have you ever played games like this? RTS or Little King's Story?
I was turned off by the Pikmin series initially and I'm still not sold on if that was correct or not, but Pikmin 3, with it's focus on fruit collection, is quite a treat. It's challenging but not even close to brutally. Probably more on the easier side frankly but I mean that in the sense that you can lay back, explore and the real challenge comes from getting your own defined goal for the day done by the end of that day.
Another fine episode. And I've had the pleasure of meeting two thirds of the participants this episode! Hooray for me! All your work is still super appreciated out here. And the guests continue to be great. Keep it up!
Yeah, somehow the Skypery was rough, even with two of y'all in the same room. It sounded like the dude from Twin Peaks who talked in reverse was the surprise fourth guest.
Good stuff, though. Lou, I can't believe your 'stalk market' experience ruined Animal Crossing for you. You should appreciate it for being so real! That's exactly how disillusioning the real stock market is! Animal Crossing is trying to tell you a cautionary tale. It's scaring you straight.
You can do that on every 2nd Sunday of the month in fall months.
... oh crap.
But yea, it's all about the perfect fruit empire in my opinion. I think have 34 perfect cherry trees going. Don't forget, the key is selling them in people's towns who have native fruits different than the one you're selling.
