      Thanks for the feedback! If we go to a weekly show, we probably will cover more news. But at the same time, we’ll still have shows that are more thematic and may skip over smaller news info unless it tickles our fancy.

      Would you prefer the latest news to play a major role in the weekly format?

      Thanks so much for signing up to let us know what you think. Like Evan wrote, there are many ways we can integrate news into the show, and if it’s an important item for a lot of listeners, we’d love to hear how much you think the show should be news, versus a mix.

    I am glad Nintendo patched Mario Kart seven. I used to avoid Maka Wuhu like a plague. But after the patch, it was my favorite race course just to see them fall off the track for a nonexistent shortcut.

    Weekly show is the way to go, even if its shorter, i think an hour is just fine, also its nice to hear some rumors and speculation niow that e3 is soo close.

    Definitely not opposed to weekly podcasts, but would rather hear discussion and debates instead of another bland news recap. After all, plenty of other websites and podcasts already offer the news… so unless it’s something you have a passionate reaction to or feel strongly compelled to discuss, then maybe Heartcast isn’t the right place for it?

    I think the tech perspective stuff is a bit misunderstood. The reality is we know quite a bit about the wiiu. It seems like it will be better than 360 and ps3 but not by miles. The thing is and this gets forgotten as techies discuss these new hd consoles is that they didn’t impress many people with those initial graphic advances. A problem occurred when good developers finally got good ideas out on those hd consoles because they either couldn’t port the titles to the wii or when they did port them they were late to wii and lacked significant features.

    The wiiu has a better graphics processor, a 25gb media, more ram, and a similiar processor and speed to the 360. It also has to push graphics to the tablet. This means that the rumors are true. The wiiu is both more powerful and simultaneously will be underpowered compared to nonexistent mythical consoles of the future. My issue with these legendary next-next gen consoles is why would sony or ms push the same ideas that failed them this generation. I know it is all but forgotten now but to get this level of power sony was charging $600 and even ms was caught off-guard when the wii started outselling them by massive numbers. I just don’t see MS or Sony announcing anything crazy. They don’t want to tell you those things because they want people to keep guessing, and using those guesses to hold off on buying competing consoles, but it just doesn’t make sense for them to do the same thing again.

    I think even a few discussions about random Nintendo news every week is nice.
    When news is slow, I’ll still tune in for some Nintendo talk.
    I’ll even tune in for the Hatecast. lol
    Maybe you go back in time to talk about what Nintendo did right and wrong with older home consoles, handheld consoles, and games.
