    Building your Gaming Repertoire

    Now that you have an Android device, I recommend getting an OnLive account. The service itself is free, and you can play demos and watch other people play. You only need to pay when you actually want to purchase a game. You can use the OnLive app from your phone and from your Computer.

      Also, you can pay $9.99 a month to get in on the playpass which basically allows you to play the games that are within the PlayPass area of OnLive. It’s a pretty nice selection of games actually.

    Wii U’s Name Really Works

    I just recently met up with a cousin that I don’t get to see very often. His youngest kid has a DS Lite, middle child a DSi, and oldest has a 3DS. While we were adding each other to our Friends Lists, without having to type in the codes, we talked about the Wii U.

    He was considering getting a 360 for the Kennect, but he had no idea that the Wii U was coming out at all, let alone this year! He noticeably preferred to get the Nintendo system instead, but then he started wondering if he should still get the 360 because he wanted to play games for himself too, not just for his kids.

    This is where the Wii U’s name really came in handy in explaining to him why it would be fine to purchase the Wii U instead of the 360. I let him know that the Wii was named to show that its games were for everyone, but the Wii U’s name shows that it is also intended for you. He immediately understood as I spoke these words, his eyes kindof lit up. Now, we are both looking forward to playing our new systems online together. We just need the third parties to deliver on this and bring their multiplatform games to the Wii U.

    They could always call it the Wii Forward or -to emphasize the singular experience- the Wii One. As in, it’s not just for everybody, it’s also for one player as well. ;-)

    I sorta like the idea of the card, but if you lose your card what do you do? all of your information could be scanned and seen on a computer made to steal data

    Great podcast, 2 hours of nintendo goodness, this is by far the best nintendo podcast outthere! Kepp em coming!

    Im on the fence on the dlc content for wiiU, i know its inevitable, but i dont want my Nintendo games to be sold in parts, like iwata say, i want the whole thing when i buy a game, i think that selling a game in parts or adding extensions ruin the overal feeling of a grand masterpiece. It would be a terrible thing if someday you have to buy new dungeons in a zelda game, even if i dont have to buy them in order to complete the game i will somehow feel that i HAVE to buy them, otherwise another people are gonna be enjoying content that i don’t have.

    I gotta get in on some of this Mario Kart action.

    DLC is fine. Honestly I would love Super Mario 3Dland DLC levels.

    Plus I want Dry Bones bakc in MarioKart 7. i would pay a couple bucks for him.

    Mario Kart 7 Game Time Set! 2/20 (next Monday) from 9 – 9:30 PM eastern time. Evan and I will have to skedaddle at 9:30 to record the next Heartcast, but we will be on for that first half hour of glory. Smite us on the tracks! Then smite each other, if the bloodlust of the race track consumes you.
