IGN: Nintendo Voice Chat Podcast, Episode 34

Welcome to Nintendo Voice Chat. Matt Casamassina, Craig Harris, Bozon, and Daemon Hatfield are going to waggle their way into your hearts.

With Craig and Daemon trapped in some kind of Bay Area blackout -- very likely the beginning of a dystopian society -- Matt and Mark handle the podcast exclusively from Los Angeles. The bearded editors talk about everything from Winter and MadWorld to Retro Studios' new game, DQ5, Sonic & the Black Knight, House of the Dead: Overkill, Tenchu: Shadow Assassins and more.

Plus, since Daemon is out and therefore cannot skip over the majority of reader questions, the remaining editors answer them all.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Look for major IP's from major publishers "coming soon.He says look to his prediction piece for hints on some of the stuff thats coming among others.

I have no strong feelings either way about Luigi's hat having a 'B' on it instead of an 'L', however, the podcast is over 9000 kilobytes.
