Episode 60: Casual Acquaintances

wiids
Well, we made it. Our 60th episode is now online, no thanks to the problems we had when rounding up the hosts, sending the files and - of course - putting the damn thing together. I'd like to call for a huge round of applause for the hosts, who coped admirably in my absence because I was trapped in London by both an impending deadline and a poor excuse for train service.

They've managed to put together a fantastic episode - once I removed all the mistakes.
And the random off-air banter.
And the ten minutes of fussing over whether or not Dippy's computer was going to spontaneously combust.
And Mani singing (as per).

Enjoy!

Episode 59: When WiiWare Kings

wiids
Just to spite me, Dippy uploads the episode a whole day before the usual release date! And, maliciously, Jack 'cronogenesis/the jumpman' Smith has done the shownotes. I can't turn my back for a second - he'll be after my job next!

Still, here's a rundown of Episode 59: When WiiWare Kings...

NEWS: No Nintendo At Leipzig 2008

james
Apparently not. According to Kotaku and a German press release I wouldn't dare attempt to translate, Nintendo will not be attending this year's Games Convention in Leipzig.

The reason? They've had so much success with both public and press only roadshows and events, which have "let to many positive experiences", they're going to focus on those instead after E3.

However, Nintendo Germany's Dr Bern Fakesch has assured the company's followers that this only applies to the 2008 Games Convention. Nintendo will re-evaluate whether or not to attend GC2009 at a later date.

On a more personal note, I'm rather gutted because my boss has just booked my tickets to Leipzig!
Mani
Our close friend on the WiiDS - Cronogenesis has become quite excited at the thought of a sequel to Michel Ancels incredible yet criminally overlooked masterpiece Beyond Good and Evil. Find out what he has to say after the jump.

Jumpman In Minus World: Beyond Good & Evil 2

Once you have read his views and one we very much share here on WiiDS - Take a second to sign this petition - and get this title from pre production to store shelves - and into your beloved game collection - all you have to do is sign your name on the petition below.

http://www.petitiononline.com/bgaep/petition.html

It's simple. You have the power to make this happen - so use it! Thanks to Cronogenesis for informing us of the news, continuing to make his blog pages a damn good read!, his support for bringing this game to fruition and giving the game and Michel Ancel a chance to get the recognition that they deserve! Also a huge thanks to the ongoing efforts at BGE2 Revolution

(http://z6.invisionfree.com/BGE2_Revolution/index.php?act=idx)



And a final thank you to you guys,
the listeners and readers who I just know are going to make this happen. Don't let this one slip away. If you have not had a chance to play the original then seek it down on consoles on auction sites and bargain bins around the country. Those who live in the U.S can pick the game up on PC through Steam for $8 - Its only $8. Americans can also get it for FREE by becoming a Gold member on Gametap for 99 cents!

so why not take a look eh? You WILL be pleasantly surprised.

Viva la Revolution!

Episode 58: The Rare Necessities

wiids
DOWNLOAD HERE

We've got a very heated episode for you this week, but don't worry - it's all in good fun. Originally the plan was to discuss Rare and all of its games, but we became a little too focused on a certain bear and bird duo, with the team divided about how their third outing will fair. However, no matter of civilised debating can defeat an Almighty Jason Monologue...

Having trouble embedding. Apologies - will try tomrrow - If I can stop watching the damn thing!!! Now thats how you make a trailer.

EDIT: Aha! Now it's working, so you have no excuse not to check out this awesome trailer of the best upcoming FPS on Wii!


IMPORTANT: Episode 57 fixed!

dippy
Anyone who downloaded the first version of episode 57 might have wondered why all the sound was only coming out of the left earpiece/speaker/whatever. It was entirely James' fault (you can't trust that boy with anything, can you?) but I've spent the best part of my evening putting it right. The replacement is now up and ready for your listening pleasure.

Those who downloaded the mono version might like to download this again, not only to listen to the podcast in stereo but also for a little Easter Egg especially for James :mrgreen:

Enjoy!
