One sounds like he's on drugs, another dropped for a half hour. How did this show release?

Following the stunning release of not one but two Game of the Year shows (you can grab 2015 and 2016 here if you missed them), the editing shabeen went into super lockdown trying to fix this episode of Nintendo Free Radio up. And they almost succeeded. New Business opens with Stephen tackling Starcraft (pre-remaster announcement) before Donald swings in with Austen's inevitable Game of the Year: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. The impressions are early, so no spoilers, but someone's trying something inspired by the initials LKD. Austen doubles back to Horizon: Zero Dawn before hitting some of the backlog including noted bomb Mafia 3 before finishing with four replays worth of Resident Evil 7. (The DLC mentioned, Not A Hero, was delayed on posting day. Go figure.)

Whatcha Watchin' has Stephen and Austen discussing the merits of modern Disney in the context of them swimming in piles of money with Beauty and the Beast 2017, while Donald tries to avoid being left out by breaking the glass of children's card games: Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged is back.

The Feature, extra clippy thanks to Donald's continued rivalry with audio recording software, features the other reason why he's only catching up on Q1 now: PAX East. It was his first con, and possibly the last. The Mushrooms hit the usual suspects - internet witch hunts, retailer idiocy (though Amazon did make good with FREE Take Your Heart editions for those whose orders were cancelled) and the recesses of Stephen's Mushrooms.

Now that this monster has been slain, 92 (hopefully sounding WAY better) will follow shortly behind. If you're looking to get in on the road to 100, hit us up by email, Twitter or the comments below.

Includes ice-cold Metacritic draft.

We waited until the end of the fiscal year but it's finally out - the 2016 Game of the Year show.

The first segment is our top 10s for the year with honorable mentions and a ranked 5-1 list, as well as awards such as "The Wonderful 101 Presents Best Soundtrack" and "Biggest Clusterditto". There will be spoilers in this segment, but for nothing more than Pokemon Sun and Moon.

The second part starts with a countdown on Whatcha Watchin' including a stunning reversal on bears, then we jump ahead to this year with a countdown of the 2017 games we were most hyped for. (Note we recorded this in February or the DQ8 3DS release would have been on Donald's list.) We close by playing the market a bit as we each picked five games that we think would have high Meta/Opencritic ratings. Stephen appears to be the clubhouse leader there.

We swear this will not happen again, if only for the sanity of the editors.

When this was recorded, the album art was still a rumor.

No, seriously, we finally recovered the long lost 2015 Game of the Year recording from... lord, December 20, 2015. The show features a historic first, a Dragonite swarm, and discussion of the last bits of Smash DLC along with the year in review. (Maybe we should have held this out for the release of their Amiibo?)
