    I would say great podcast but i feel if i said it every week it would loose its meaning now that i collected my thoughts let me say a few things. first right now whats killing me with smash bros is right now all bets are off with the we could end up with anything from an hd brawl to something along the lines of powerstone 2 or the naruto fighting game also made by namco bandai. so were do you think it should and would be.As for timeless new content how about doing a rare find section on the podcast about games that flew under the radar like solatorobo i know you mentioned it before but there games like it and fighting fantasy that you could get some milage out of.

    Hey guys.

    Finally got time to listen to this episode (yay shout out near the end!).

    I am incredibly hyped for the 3DS XL. I think the DSi XL is just one of the best platforms I’ve ever used. The screens are gorgeous and the form/functionality are so comfortable and enjoyable.

    I have a (awesome, Zelda edition) 3DS, however, I’ve been hoping that an XL version would come out ASAP. I’m not the type of person who is just willing to bleed out money every time a tech manufacturer decides enough time has gone by to squeeze again. However, the 3DS XL will be a welcome exception.

    I’m really glad the system hasn’t taken years and years to be released.

    UNFORTUNATELY! I won’t be buying a 3DS XL until more colors become available for North America. As amazing as the design is, the blue and red colors that will be available at launch completely turn me off. I don’t think I’ve ever really had that problem before. I usually don’t buy systems right at launch, but I still don’t think I’ve ever been faced with a selection of hardware colors and thought “nope. I wouldn’t be happy spending hundreds of dollars on any of these.”

    So, I’m going to wait until the Christmas season and hope some new colors have been released, or at least announced, by then. At the top of my list are the all-white version Japan is getting or a green/black that uses the same shades from this 3DS that was released in Japan:

    Loved the episode, can’t wait for the next one!
