    As soon as you said Bird & Beans, I instantly wanted to play it. It probably has my favorite Nintendo music ever.

    Adventure Time is my most anticipated game!!!! That show is amazing just watch it. It’s basically a trippy post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure romp. Plus Wayforward does Zelda 2 how could it go wrong?

      Erm … The Zelda II part … Don’t get me wrong, I want it to succeed, but the Zelda II formula was not a spectacular one to begin with.

        It was a good idea poorly executed. Much like a Boy & His Blob. Wayforward took the that idea and made a master piece on Wii (my favorite Wii game) I think if they can re imagine the Zelda 2 formula it will be great. My concern with this game is that its rushed possibly and the 3DS version is a quick port of the DS version. But even if it gets bad reviews I’m still getting the collector’s edition. I have every single (of the first set) of adventure time toys in the shrink wrap. I have a problem. Can’t afford the second series at the moment. Maybe some day.

    Okay it’s a little late but here’s my idea for setting up games just set the message on your freinds list to a set of initials a day and a time example m7 (mariokart 7) 8/18 6pm est. this should make a quick and easy way to propose games.

    The Nintendo Communitycast

    I propose that we have a Nintendo Communitycast segment on the one year anniversary of the Nintendo Heartcast. Here is the link to The Future of Nintendojo for some ideas:

    Hi Guys!,

    Great show this week :). I want to suggest playing some other games for the community like RE:Revelations raid mode or maybe even the RE:Mercenaries lol. I’m trying to get my hands on a cop of Mario Kart 7, but I’m in South Korea teaching so its a little difficult :(.

    yeeeaaaa Heartcast! Another great show.

    I really love how you two can talk about any game with respect and interest. Being secure enough to say that you might very well enjoy, say, Style Savvy makes you the truest of gamers. The “””hardcore””” can suck it! =P

    As for the release schedule, I’m totally cool with it. Luigi’s Mansion has been one of my top 3DS games since its original announcement but ya know what? I plan on being alive in 2013 so I’ll get to play it eventually.

    As for this year, we should be grateful that Code of Princess and Zero’s Last Reward are being localized. Either one of those games could have had Operation Rainfall 2 written all over them and I’m greatly looking forward to both.

    Enjoying the heck out of Rhythm Thief. See you guys next episode!
