Nintendo Free Radio 93: The Dragonite Is Unleashed
...and he got loose in the editing room.
It was a busy few weeks for the NFR crew in the lead-up to the summer, and we're breaking it down for you. Stephen opens New Business with Kaz's Folly, as he made the eye-searing purchase of Playstation VR. Many trials ensued. A very puzzled Donald got it out of his system with Puyo Puyo Tetris before diving into Nier Automata and a pair of pickled Persona: The endgame of 5, and then another crack at 3 Portable (that has since gone on hold for review purposes). Also included: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, because BAAAAAAA. Austen got psychological with Little Nightmares and freaky with Yooka-Laylee, before heading back to the horror house with What Remains of Edith Finch and some quick hits including the first part of the latest Telltale cash grab, Guardians of the Galaxy. This becomes important later.
Whatcha Watchin' sees Stephen keep on the VR train as it also serves as a 3D movie device before he tag teams the #1 movie in the country (on the weekend of its release), Dave Bautista's Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Austen then gets a little sacreligious with Noragami Aragoto and Sunday Without God before redeeming himself with Quantum Leap.
The Feature discussion is part of a new annual tradition as we look back at the first four months of the year in games and try to guess which won't get the love they deserve, and then turn the cannon the other way to guess the rest of the year of the ignored. In the Mushrooms, we talk New 2DS, bonuses, and why The Witcher 3 can jump off a cliff.
