New format for New Business on a bunch of new games

Hot off the internet presses comes the 15th round of hilarity from the world of Nintendo Free Radio. In the name of shaking things up, New Business has some pre-recorded thoughts from the team before a Q&A round. Donald opens the bidding with the 3DS rhythm platformer HarmoKnight (a final aftershock of the combo) and dodges flying matchsticks with Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, while Stephen loads up on the March multiplayer hits with Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (WiiU). Austen wraps up with spoiler-free thoughts on the latest game everyone's Irrationally excited for: Bioshock Infinite - a game that may be better served in a different genre - before going old school with Alone In the Dark: Inferno.

After the usual round of insanity Now Posted at the NWR forums, Whatcha Watchin' prevents plenty of animated violence for your edification. Donald has been working his way through the complete original animated run of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Stephen fought off the slice of the Witchblade, and Austen wrapped up Shakugan no Shana and took on the thrill ride of Deadman Wonderland.

The Feature Discussion doesn't have a full subject, but there were enough for a segment legally distinct from the classic Four Minute Warning format. Topics for discussion include CEO sackings, generational length, and just what a "Game of the Fiscal Year" list would look like. As usual, the show wraps with the Mushrooms, featuring someone giving both mushrooms to the same company. Who gets to drink from the firehose? You'll have to listen to find out.

We definitely want to hear from you in case we have to try our non-unionized Four Minute Warning equivalent again, or any other questions/discussion topics: send them to nintendofreeradio@gmail.com. We'll see you again soon, but until then, beware the Snake of the Festival.
