And other revelaitons from a crazy break

As Nintendo Free Radio emerges from a drama-induced backlog, we hit a bunch of March's finest. Leading off in New Business is the new-apartment dwelling Donald, who has a couple of flawed portable RPGs with Codename STEAM for the 3DS and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines. After early impressions of an infamous Smash tournament and the remake of the year, the baton is thrown to Stephen for a Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate update and information on the trippy 3DS puzzler Ketzal's Corridors, now available on Club Nintendo for coins if you can access it. Austen gets off the portable train by hitting a whole shedload of Resident Evils, indie puzzle masochism simulator Ori and the Blind Forest, and the FFXV demo starring a giant enemy Ramuh who attacks the planet for massive damage.

A brief Whatcha Watchin' has Donald passing, Stephen quick-hitting Fish Kings and S3 of House of Cards, before Austen catches up on Agents of Shield and the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon. (The Kotaku article referenced: http://www.kotaku.com.au/2015/03/the-new-transformersis-off-to-a-shaky-start-and-thats-just-prime/).

The Feature was recorded a few weeks ago, but does feature a load of speculation about Nintendo's future in lieu of certain St Patrick's Day announcements, as well as a post-games Konami and how the hell Sony can sell 20 million systems when all their first party stuff gets delayed. For the Mushrooms, it's all about the changes, including some companies refusing to change.

55 is in the can and will come out soon, but we can always use some feedback - tweet us @nfrpodcast or just drop it below. And you might notice something different about the NWR thread...
