See that can? Episode 53 is in it!

In this episode you'll find, DrFinkelstein, Ninsage and newcomer, TheOldManFromZelda discussing all sorts of topics!

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!

I actually thought you were the guest from the title.

Come on and talk Metroid and Castlevania, then we'll talk!

The title comes from the discussion about game franchises changing genres. We could go much deeper than we did too if we had more time and guests. It's a vast topic I think.

i have yet to play a pikmin game. I've heard the same... 1 and 2 were 'meh' by some people and great to others

The problem is that I really want to try Pikmin 3...without buying it and with video rental places going the way of the dodo, it's hard to tell if I'm going to enjoy this type of game.

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.

I have yet to play Pikmin 3 but I get the feeling I will still like 1 more. 1 had perfect pacing in my opinion.

As soon as I get the chance, I shall listen to this.

It's alright. It's not TOO bad. I did have to do a lot of finessing on this one though. It was not an easy edit. Next time we'll have to see how multiple headsets will work.

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!

You can tell we got very tired at the end. Mailing knives? Who does that!?

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.

Keep the "Wablet" flame burning!

It was only a test. It won't happen again. Lou's gonna get a headset before his next appearance.

I had to edit out a ton of feedback this episode. It was a rough experiment but I think the episode turned out just fine in the end. I'm looking forward to have Lou-with-Headset back.

$700,000 for a bushel of perfect fruit? Seriously?! GAH, why am I doing anything else? Fuck fishing!

I'm tempted to invade NinSage's town, murder him, and wear his smiling face as a mask. Can you do that in New Leaf?

I've only been making about 100k each harvest but I'm building my orchard of perfect apples.

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.

Erika and I have a good thing going with her having Perfect Pears and me with Perfect Apples. You're welcome to sell in my town anytime buddy.
