    Hey guys. I gotta plug Pandora’s Tower here. It’s flawed but absolutely charming and unique. The dungeon design is clever and rewarding. The story is twisted so if you’re like me you’ll enjoy it. The bosses require a lot of thought. I think for anyone that’s a fan of 3D Zelda and can be patient with mechanics that are a bit more creative than they are good that this is a great send off for your Wii. Especially if you don’t have WiiU (NOAH). Congrats to Operation Rainfall. Without them I would have missed out on 3 of my favorite Wii games.

    For game night. I’m up for LM:DM or KI:U. I think I’m getting a circle pad pro so I’ll have to go back to KI:U and see if I’m better at the multi-player with 2 sticks.

    As a rule, I usually don’t download games that I can get in a physical release. That’s the collector in me wanting real objects to hold. Also with downloaded games, there’s no secondhand market and no chance to get it at a lower price unless the publisher has a sale.

    But sad as I am to see that Dual Destinies isn’t getting a boxed release, I still have every intention of buying it! Phoenix Wright is mah bro.

    Another great show! Just wanted to couple of few comments:

    (1) Adding game music to the podcast (either as a “guess the game” type challenge or just an “appreciate the music” section) would be fantastic. In-game music is something that often gets overlooked or ignored, but can be one of the most enduring and emotionally resonant aspects of gaming when well done.

    (2) Totally agree about Fluidity: Spin Cycle being a disappointment. The game is still well made, and I understand how many will enjoy it… but the 360-degree rotation was awkward and made using buttons or touch-screen actions difficult, and the short linear levels were a huge step down from the open environments in the WiiWare original.

    Good work guys!

    I gave 5 bucks to shadows of the eternals, i know its not too much, but being episodic if the first one is a success then i will buy the next chapters. The game looks amazing graphically and concept wise, is everything i want from a true eternal dark ess sequel.

    I concur with the Pandora’s Tower plug. I’m very early in, now in tower 3 of 13 but have been very pleasantly surprised so far. It has been touted the weakest of the 3 Operation Rainfall games but I’m not sure I agree. Nothing is going to touch Xenoblade Chronicles for me but a few hours in has me liking it just as much, if not more than The Last Story. The production values are not great but the combat is very fun, even if it is motion control which in general I don’t care for. I’m hoping it keeps my interest as I play further into it.

    Regarding Phoenix Wright, if there is anyone boycotting this game because it’s digital only, well, their loss. I’m not going to deprive myself of experiences like Dual Destinies or Rayman Legends because of corporate decisions. I have a feeling when these games release, anyone that was interested before will still buy them, even if they’ll never admit on the internet.
