With Comic-Con freshly behind us, the GameFans crew takes a look at some of the information that came out of Comic-Con, including a look at whether limited edition bundles are worth it, Capcom’s new Strider release, Nintendo’s next Zelda game, and a special contest for our listeners. You’ll have to listen to find out the details, but spoiler, it’s totally worth it!

    I can’t watch this on my wii u…

    • bizzy gie

      Neither can I.

    • nintendope

      you’d have to be in some special kind of drugs to be able to “watch” a podcast..

  • Mariokartfann

    Wait, ComicCon started?! It ENDED!?
    Darn E3 has me relax then BAM ComicCom happened before I can say… anything in fact

  • kenny Johnson

    Is it possible that if the Wii had been HD that the higher cost might have discouraged the casual market from buying it? It might have actually been less successful. . .

    • incoherent1

      Agreed. Plus, it could’ve caused the delays we’re seeing with Wii U games, which would’ve made it even worse off…

    • Linskarmo

      I imagine that less success would have been likely. I actually wouldn’t have minded a little less successfulness to have sharper games. Having an option between an HD and SD Wii would have been awesome on both accounts I think, but might have presented some difficulties.

  • Vaughn Chung

    Great podcasts. I just really, really hate the intro music personally.

    • misterhearn

      Really enjoy you listening. Now where’s that hashtag?

        #YesUS #Yes! It’s right here… Maybe Nick should just send it to me for being the first guy to follow directions 🙂

  • incoherent1

    Would love it if Nick shared his Club Nintendo goodies (everyone else who agreed a should use the hash tag #Yes)!

    Im surprised a 3DS up date wasn’t shown this year at E3 to help spur investors to invest back in Nintendo. But I can see why they didn’t. I would say they will reveal a “3DSi” after xmas or by E3 next year. And a DS next gen will be out 2015-2016.

    • KosmoCrisis

      Didn’t the “i” stand for internet? I think a 3DS hardware revision will pose a naming challenge for Nintendo. They should let the fans decide what the system is called. 3DS 2, 3DS Two, Super 3DSiXL 2 U Extreme?

      • Zuxs13

        I think the “I” was also a play on words I for eye or the camera. I do hope they come up with something easier for people to remember and know what it is.

  • Tekina Sibawo

    I will not share! I will hoard! lolol. #yes

  • Tekina Sibawo

    Ashley and I share a love of Batman. #YesUS

  • Sean

    I want the nintendo statue#yes

  • Sean


  • gatekeeper1980

    I would like those Nintendo statue. I will cover the postage going here in New Zealand. Nintendo Club reward items here for Australia & New Zealand is not much and not as good as you do there in US and Europe. So it will be awesome to have them. Cheers. #yesNZ

  • Toadlord

    My girlfriend and I are starting to put together a game room, so I would love the statue as an addition to that. #yes

  • AAAkabob

    The 3DS has better specs than DSi and I hope not too quickly, I just bought my 3DS XL

    Btw I had no clue the 3DS was the next generation until last year. always thought it was just another refresh.

    #yesUS #hellyes #sí #yep #yea #oui #ja #はい #oo #vâng
    there’s all ten, I want the hat=D

    • KosmoCrisis

      Nice. The 3DS suffered the same consumer confusion as the Wii U has experienced. It’s all about product nomenclature and marketing.
      Ex 1: GameBoy>GameBoy Advance>GameBoy Advance SP>GameBoy Micro
      Ex 2: DS>DS Lite>DSi>DSiXL
      Ex 3: 3DS>3DSXL

      • AAAkabob

        Nintendo needs better marketers that decides names for their systems, end of convo

  • JeanPaul


    We are basically non existent :/

  • The statue would look very nice next to my GameCube collection. #YesUS

    • KosmoCrisis

      Do you still play any of those GameCube games? If so, which one(s)? My absolute favorite GC game is probably Mario Golf Toadstool’s Tour. But Luigi’s Mansion is a close second.

      • I’ve been playing my GameCube a lot lately. Since I’m building up my collection I’m final able to try out a lot of different games. I’m mainly playing Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance right now. Very addicting.

        I’m also trying to get my friends back together to finish Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles using our Gameboy Advances as controllers. We still have the last level to finish and I do not intend to beat it without them because of how much effort we all put into it. I would have to say Final Fantasy: CC is one of my favorite GC titles because it created a lot of memories between me and my two buddies. But my all time #1 favorite GC game would have to be Metroid Prime. It was just so beautiful.

  • Jason arreola

    I was an emotional wreck by the end of the Walking Dead, yall must finish NOW!

    • KosmoCrisis

      Working on it. If anything, knowing there is an emotional wreck waiting for me at the end of the game is a major deterrent.

  • wober2

    I am so bored of batman, I actually picked up a newer comic of aquaman. It has potential perhaps in a game of thrones style being about hard decisions in leadership. #yes

    • KosmoCrisis

      How successful would an Aquaman trilogy like the Dark Knight be?

      • wober2

        I think it might be different in tone but some dark fantacy-esque atlantis power grab could be interesting. Maybe it would be more like thor but hopefully with a DC operatic darkness.

  • KosmoCrisis

    So…#YES or #NO?

  • Thomas Vienna

    #YES US. I need more Nintendo Stuff! I’m a huge fan, but I have no T-shirts or anything.
