We talk about Nintendo’s “mergers and acquisitions” talk and Nintendo’s love/hate relationship with core gamers. Rodrigo waxes nostalgic about blowing on cartridges. Finishing up the Nintendo talk; witness as Rodrigo’s mind getting blown by Paul on the current state of Nintendo. We also try to figure out how to define “disingenuous.” Rodrigo’s girlfriend Jacque says, “Hi.” We do some Metal Gear Solid talk. Paul’s always playing old games. Rodrigo goes off on the price and length of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, while Paul tries to understand the problem with the price for the length. Rodrigo also coins the term “Kojami.” Paul goes off on Metal Gear fans and how much they bitch about the property that they love.
