Celebrate 3DS launch week with Brandon, Josh and Tom as they share some hands-on impressions and online reactions before delving into discussions about games old and new, from 3DS launch titles to the now-ancient Dead Space to the relatively dated Enslaved and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. Plus, an impressive pile of listener emails!
Editor’s note: This week’s podcast is best enjoyed within view of bickering cats.
0:01:13 – Tom has recruited Brandon for the impending and entirely unnecessary Warrior Dash. Goodbye, Brandon. It was nice knowing you.
0:07:06 – 3DS launch day! Tom;’s held a 3DS in his hands and actually played some games! Let’s talk about the important topics of the day, then, like how Tom is raising his real-life cats.
0:17:35 – Pilotwings Resort, demos, and some suggestions to Nintendo on how best to advertise their new handheld.
0:30:37 – Josh has just gotten his hands on Golden Sun: Dark Dawn for the DS! What’s he think so far, as a fan of the series?
0:47:29 – Josh has also been playing Dead Space! Uh. The… the first one, not the new one.
