We have normality. Repeat: We have normality. Anything you can't deal with is therefore your own problem.
After delaying the show a week to get in some European trade show action, Nintendo Free Radio has returned to brighten your Labor Day. Stephen opens New Business on a somber note by leading a discussion of the extremely controversial Depression Quest, but the controversy is set aside in favor of discussing it as a game and teaching tool. Continuing the theme of psycho-analysis, Stephen dives into the odd world of Doki-Doki Universe. Austen returns to the Cold War with cross-platform stealth action game Counterspy, completely sells out by talking about the three good mobile phone games that aren't Twitter (tm Dr. J. Metts), and finishes with a rare family-friendly PS4 game in The Last Tinker: City of Colors. Donald was clearly in a violent mood, so he takes his frustrations out on Persona 4 Arena and Ultra Street Fighter IV with a couple of brief stops on Vita fighters as well.
DON'T PANIC - Now Posted's back (ok, panic a bit), then it's down to Whatcha Watchin'. Stephen attended the Ultimate Car Build-Off while diving into the 1980s BBC rendition of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and finishes with a look at Hunter x Hunter. Donald keeps the anime train rolling with the beloved cyberpunk talker Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, while Austen hits Cardcaptor Sakura (dodgy East Asian English dub included), Muppets Most Wanted and a brief Korra update before discussing the number one movie in the nation that stars a former world heavyweight champion, Guardians of the Galaxy.
Think we'd ignore Gamescom? NEIN! Although it didn't get the full E3 blowout, the spate of game announcements and removals provides plenty of fodder for discussion. Also, you may slap the nearest EA executive for using "selfie" and "all the feels" in the same presser. The Mushrooms throw shade on hoarders, mourn the passing of Robin Williams, and celebrate the return of Cowboy Bebop.
There's not a lot of Nintendo here, but that's probably going to change next time - why not send us your thoughts on the Smash leaks, Mario Kart 8 add-ons or the New 3DS? Send that over to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave it below. Until next time, eat, tweet, delete, repeat.
