The lights are on
This week we catch up on the year's two big Nintendo releases, plus talk Rayman. In the first segment, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Phil Kollar, Bryan Vore, and GI Show rarity editor-in-chief Andy McNamara, who comes down from his mountain stronghold to talk about one of the year's greatest games. The segment gets a bit heated, as Andy vents his spleen about some of the game's flaws, while Phil and Bryan take a more positive approach. However, all agree that this is one of the best Zelda games ever made. In segment two, Bryan returns, along with Tim Turi and Kyle Hilliard to talk about Super Mario 3D Land, the game that could make or break the 3DS this holiday season. If the 3DS doesn't take off, it won't be the fault of 3D Land, which is yet another masterpiece in the Mario series. Finally, reviewer Jeff Cork, Matt Miller, and super video guy Ben Hanson come by to talk about another stellar platformer, Rayman Origins. All in all, one of the most quality-packed shows we've done this year.
