Positive Spin // Nintendo announces NX will be released in 2017 and The Legend of Zelda will be available on both Wii U and the new NX system. What does Nintendo need to do this time around to get it right? Karl says they need a proper controller, Shane believes they should release a modern day Super Nintendo with a kiss and Joel adds that he would love it if didn't have to repurchase any games.
0:13:10 Playing (Impressions) // Karl is playing Mini Mario & Friends Amiibo Challenge (Wii U) with his son, World of Warcraft (PC) and the Warlords of Draenor expansion, Ratchet & Clank (PS4), Tom Clancy's The Division (PS4), and basketball via Rocket League (PS4). Leads to a tangential discussion about Ubisoft's strange decision to ban players in The Division based on exploits they created. Joel explains the controls in the newly released Star Fox Zero (Wii U) and how they potentially will keep him from finishing the game. He also plays some more Mario Kart 8 (Wii U) in order to feel better about Nintendo and the Wii U. Shane trims his sideburns on more MLB The Show 16 in order to give us a thorough review of the game.
