Nintendo Heartcast Episode 054: Grammarians

Summary
After debating some grammar, Evan and Noah discuss more Luigi’s Mansion 2 and to what extent EA is abandoning Nintendo.

Grammar Corner Addendum: Also, Noah got mixed up in his inflammable analogy, but he left it in the show since he knew he could address it here. “Inflammable” used to mean “not flammable,” much like “inconceivable” means “not conceivable” and “inconsequential” means “not consequential”. However, people thought of “inflame” when they said “inflammable,” and the word was misused so much, we now have to say “non-flammable” for something that cannot be ignited and “inflammable” means you can light something on fire. Thanks predominantly to linguistic trailblazer Evan, pun intended, we may have to start doing the same with “bimonthly”.

    I had after I typed traded Mario Kart seven and Legend Of Zelda SS for Luigi Mansion dark moon on March 27th. So I will be ready for game night now. I already been playing the final mansion near the Terrance. I do not plan to get Resident Evil: Revelations what I assume is the same game except for for Wii U.

    Evan, Noah is right. Bi-Monthly means every other month. But you already know that since you’re writing for Nintendo Force which is a bi-monthly publication…

    Great show. Keep up the good work, guys.

    Other then Madden I could really care less about EA support even though I purchased Need for Speed: Most Wanted and am enjoying it. However, if it never came out for Wii U it wouldn’t have bothered me.

    Hearing Noah talk about when he was a Nintendo loyalist reminds me of how I was and still (for the most part) am today but mostly because my gaming time is limited and with having such limited time for gaming I’d rather stick with Wii U and 3DS and enjoy Nintendo first party games and the random good third party games for each of the two Nintendo Systems. And so far i’ve been more then happy the eshop titles i’ve downloaded on both 3DS and Wii U.

    And RocketsAstrosTexans is right about Lego City: Undercover it’s totally awesome! Anyone with a Wii U should pick it up. The only complaint I have about it is the load times but otherwise it’s great! It has a good (and funny) storyline and it’s by far the best lego game released so far.
