    336 was pretty great! Listening the last few months have made me want a 3DS and Wii U. If only Halloween were on a Tuesday this year. One of the best podcasts I listened to was last years Halloween episode. Spooky stories, drinks, and podcasting (plus Mike being there is always awesome).

    Nick's mind being blown was hilarious and had me laughing for a while. Surprised to hear that Windwaker HD is not only a good game but a full on remake, I expected it to be just a prettier version of Windwaker but to hear they fixed some issues is a big plus for me, unfortunately I don't see myself getting a Wii U for it. I disagree with the assumptions that Kris made and I believe the delay is for financial reasons only and not technical, honestly I thought the idea of releasing next gen versions of AC4 along with Watch Dogs was a bad move to begin with glad they fixed it.

      I could be completely wrong, and I hope I am. Either way, if there is a problem, technical or otherwise, this delay at least gives them a chance to iron everything out. I just really, really want to like Watch Dogs which is why I'm nervous that there will be some glaring fault with it.

    I loved that you guys talked about X and Y. Shows that you guys are at least still using your 3DS's. P.S. I doubt Nick is still planning on selling his 3DS now...right?

      I did that months ago :) Sold it to Reborn... so I could buy an XL.

    I really liked the discussion about the AC4 pushback. Hearing the business aspects of the gaming industry discussed is always interesting. Kris becoming ecstatic/enraged over Star Citizen was great too. I see what brad means about the deodorants, but personally I think my POWERSTICK XJ HURRICANE smells ok.

    I agree with Brad and Nolan about the Pokemon thing. As a long time player I can tell you that since the 2nd Generation they have conveyed through sound and visual cues whether or not an attack was super effective, not very effective, a critical hit, paralyzed, etc not needing the text at all. The reason why they haven't taken the text out that tells you that same information you already knew is beyond me. It didn't bother me for a long time that it was in there, but recently seeing strides taken by outside sources for Pokemon ( Pokemon Showdown ) and other RPGs makes me question why Pokemon hasn't followed suit and personally lead me to not buy these current games.
