GI Show 141: THQ R.I.P., Ni No Kuni, Nintendo News

by Matt Helgeson on Jan 24, 2013 at 01:00 PM

In this week's show we discuss the passing of THQ, plus Ni No Kuni and some Nintendo news.

First up, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Andy McNamara, Andy Reiner, and Matthew Kato to talk about the recent demise of THQ and the future of some of its franchises that were recently sold to the highest bidder.

Reiner returns in the second segment, joined by Kim Wallace, to talk about Kim's review of the highly anticipated collaboration between Level-5 and the legendary animation house Studio Ghibli. Kim didn't like the game as much as some, and it's an interesting debate about its relative merits.

Finally, Kyle Hilliard, Dan Ryckert, and Bryan Vore joined the show to talk about a spate of recent Nintendo announcements, which include new Zelda and Mario games for Wii U.
