Watch out for boneless shards of chicken paste! When Justin steers the podcast everything goes wrong. This week, Tom paws at Fruit Ninja Kinect’s pomegranate while Justin drools over each frame of El Shaddai and begs Kaz and Tony to be his new The Sims Social neighbors. Plus, price drop guilt, bifurcations, wild Nintendo 3DS rumors, sandpaper, pre-PAX excitement and Tom Jones.
Game Night: Street Fighter III Online
The wreck-it Ralph movie sounds really good. If they can achive similar quality as in “Who Framed Rodger Rabbit” this really could be an awsome movie. Heck I would get a ticket.
There’s tons of potential there.
Also, while I am baffled about the lack of Wii software in 2011, I want to make it clear that buying a Wii is in no way a foolish move. If you have a 360/PS3 and are looking for a change of pace, there’s a huge back catalog of awesome, cheap games. The Mario Galaxy games, DKC Returns, Twilight Princess, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Wii Sports Resort, Punch-Out!!, Metroid Prime 3, Sin & Punishment 2, Brawl, NSMB Wii – all essential. Plus, unlike my beloved GameCube, the Wii actually enjoyed some pretty decent 3rd party support for a while, until those 3rd parties realized people weren’t interested in quality. Mad World, Zack & Wiki, A Boy and His Blob, Boom Blox 1/2, Muramasa, Epic Mickey, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Little King’s Story are all just as good as Nintendo’s stuff. And the downloadable scene isn’t there, but you’re a fool if you snub your nose at Fluidity. In Short, those two bros had the right idea.
I won!? I’d like to thank my mom, the late lamented Justinpack, Mark Zuckerberg for allowing me to like things, and Yo! Noid. Thanks guys!
Also, for some more fairly decent (and cheap now!) Wii games, I had a good time with the No More Heroeses and House of the Dead Overkill.
