No, we didn't get temporarily possessed by Anna Marie - there's just a lot of RPGs to talk about.

Time: 2'51"33

Some days, you just need to sit down and vent a spleen, and so Nintendo Free Radio returns to air out its body parts in elongated glory. Stephen is up first in New Business with a look at a Kickstarter project that actually managed to reach its goal... the programming/wildlife board game Robot Turtles, which may or may not be Frog Fractions 2. In actual video game news, Stephen also got on the Tales of Xillia train a few months back and gives you an extended look at the game that spawned a $130 LE. Donald has a Final Fantasy X HD update with a little history being made, then proceeds to go HAM on his Vita memory card and hits a couple of platformers in the news lately before finishing with extended impressions of UbiSoft's Child of Light - a game that actually came out at the usual price Ubisoft games get bought at. Austen was in on FFX and Child of Light, but saves his main RPG ire for South Park: The Stick of Truth, which in true Obsidian fashion managed to crash before he could boot the game.

After a special all-Talkback episode of Now Posted, Whatcha Watchin' is animation-free for the first time in a long time. Stephen discusses Gold Rush Alaska and Burn Notice, while Donald lets his Google Glass freak flag fly on a visit to Silicon Valley. Austen has the super-heroic (and super-average) duo of Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 to finish things off.

For the Feature discussion, since three Vita owners represents a quorum the trio looks at the future of Sony and Nintendo's dedicated handheld business in light of some bad NPD results. Is the only thing keeping the VIta alive in Japan Akiba's Trip? Possibly. You'll have to listen to find out. Finally, the Mushrooms feature a purchase Stephen will enjoy, a purchase we KNOW Austen will inevitably regret, and a purchase Donald's really conflicted about.

Unfortunately, E3 is coming up, and we want to hear from you in the run-up to the big show - so drop us an email, will ya? The address is nintendofreeradio@gmail.com, or you can leave it in the comments below. Until next time... are we cool?
