    great show guys :D

    Man I am really really happy black & white 2 is a direct sequel instead of a grey or chrome. This is a continuation of the world that I, personally, adored. I can’t wait to see how the story continues. I spent so much time in black & white that this is something I really wanted. I had said many times that I felt the story could go on more and seemed to end a little early and I guess this is why. And its on the DS! I still can’t afford a 3DS so I am well chuffed that this will be available to me. Everyone I know is very happy for this being a sequel instead of a chrome or grey or some all new story that will end up being too short again.

    Also.. about Assassin’s Creed… I just wanted to bring up that DS did get two exclusive AC games. Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles (I think it got some mobile ports eventually) & Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery (though I think this eventually got an iOS port too) but for a while at least they were exclusive to DS and they did really well (at least here) and I personally loved them. Also, even if the graphics are better on the Wii U, I still wouldn’t get ACIII for it because I’m not getting a Wii U. Enough, Nintendo… this retarded games console is not only named in the stupidest way ever, but it’s all awkward and not appealing at all.

    They Should Have the Freedom to Offend Me, Since I Have the Freedom to Ignore Them.

    Objectively, I believe that The Binding of Isaac should be allowed on the eShop. Nintendo would simply need to clearly label it as including “Questionable religious content,” so that people who are concerned about it will know to look into it first before playing it. As was said in the podcast, it is a favorably reviewed game, so its quality is not in question.

    Personally, however, I am kind of relieved that Nintendo did not allow it on the eShop. I can hardly stomach the distasteful religious jokes on Family Guy and in movies like “Paul.” Still, I continue to watch Family Guy mainly because I pretty much feel invested in it from having seen every episode. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that that kind of material should be censored or restricted, all I’m saying is that I, personally, don’t like it and I don’t mind when it’s not available. Even so, I always have the option to just not buy it or not watch it, whatever the case may be.

    The bad part is that the people who do want to play The Binding of Isaac on the 3DS don’t have that option available to them, and to be clear, they should have that option available to them. Just because I believe that “Questionable content,” religious or otherwise, should be allowed on the eshop doesn’t mean that I would like seeing it there. It’s just more important that it’s available for those that do want it, since I can just skip over it anyway. I’m getting redundant, so I‘ll go ahead and stop now.

      I feel that the choice to not allow the title on the eShop yet has to do with Team Meat never completing anything for a Nintendo system before. You have to put something not controversial out first, I would suspect.

    Oh! You can play the first few Guitar Hero games (and all of the DDR games) with a controller instead of the guitar (or dance mat). That’s why I compared the Circle Pad Pro to a Guitar Hero guitar. I feel that Resident Evil Revelations and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater -like Guitar Hero or DDR- are best played with the Circle Pad Pro… however, there is still that option to use the normal controls. Nintendo really needs to make the CPP available to everyone though..
