Everything no one ever really needed to know about the 3DS! This episode is packed with so much great content, it had to be split in two!
In part 1 Casper, Warerare, Paleo and Pandareus discuss being an early adopter, the 3DS hardware and the built-in software. Discover how the 3DS has turned Pandareus into a creepy stalker in spite of himself, find out that Warerare's Streetpass Plaza is a sausage fest, and learn that Casper is envious of both of them for these things.
In part 2, we finally discuss a selection of launch games: Pilotwings Resort, "Raymon" 3D, Nintendogs + Cats, Ghost Recon, Super Street Fighter 4 and Steel Diver.
As usual, comment on the topics, the podcast, the guests, the host, etc. in this very thread! Or, be a weirdo and post them on Facebook or Twitter instead.
Bah, give it time, usually we record on a biweekly schedule and people have trouble keeping up. Now we're hitting them with a 2 1/2 podcast one week after the last one. They'll get around to it eventually.
Gah, Panda, you need a history lesson of Nintendo games. Can't remember the name of Yoshi's Touch 'n Go? And thinking that Konami makes Ridge Racer (Namco makes it, actually) and apparently not knowing (or forgetting) that Ridge Racer is not new to Nintendo gamers? C'mon, Ridge Racer 64 was a big game, and was revamped for the original's DS launch. Plus the Gamecube got R: Racing Evolution, which was Namco's Ridge Racer from last gen.
Haha, duly noted. Touch and Go I've actually owned... I dunno, I had a lot of brain farts in this episode, unfortunately.
Ridge Racer I've actually never played. And I never owned an N64, as I said in the podcast, so I didn't know about RR64. Thanks!
Hey guys, DO put the podcast on your streetpass playlist and activate the feature. I just streetpassed two people with it, and when I went to check the playlist meny screen, there was a silver medal with a parrot on it, and below it, "2/5". I think you can unlock stuff this way!
Another cool thing about the visualisers: the clock one shows you when the time the podcast will end.
@Pandareus Yeah, there are actually more hits on episode 5 for April than 6 so far... people are getting caught up I guess. Another interesting note is that we're still getting new hits on the early episodes.
But don't worry, people are getting to it. I just now downloaded episode 6.
If you're thinking that it sends wirelessly the mp3 file to other people, then no. I explain it in the podcast, but: when you activate that feature in 3DS Sound, you do send your "Streetpass playlist" information to the people you streetpass. So it's a good way to kinda-virally spread the word on the podcast.
