“Koopa Poopa” – Jon Lindemann, an adult.
This week a very special guest is coming to us: Dr. Jonathan Metts. The former host of RFN is here to talk about Actraiser Renaissance, Nintendo Direct’s most inscrutable announcement of the past week. It turns out there’s a lot more “new” in this pack than the visuals, and the trailer did a terrible job of promoting it all. He also gives his opinion on WarioWare: Get It Together! and its unique take on the WarioWare microgame concept. James plays Bonfire Peaks, another game a friend on the Syrenne series worked on. It’s a puzzle game where you have to climb a mountain while holding boxes. There’s more to it than that, but I have to get you to listen to the show. Guillaume has 100% completed Psychonauts 2, a game that perfectly matches his humor. It has a litany of improvements over its predecessor, driven by The power of money! He also read Super Mario-kun, a Japanese manga about the Mario world in which everything is just a setup for a poop joke. Jon completes new business with Diablo II: Resurrected. It turns out to be a very solid and faithful remake of a very old game from a company with very real problems.
After the break, we’ll tackle a duo of Listener Mail. At the start of the show there is a promise of questions focused on last week’s direct, but we lied. Deal with it. Instead, we’re talking about which Nintendo character needs to be shot into space and which character should be the final Smash DLC to defeat the pandemic. Yeah, I don’t understand either. You can get confused and confused by sending an email.
