So I Heard You Wanted A Nintendo Downloads Podcast...

OK. Let's do it.

If you've been following along on the Giant Bombcast, then you know that the rest of those jerks made a command decision to totally cut the WiiWare and DSiWare portions of the program. This is the same portion that was nominated for an award last year. Last time I checked, "Vinny saying curse words' didn't get nominated for jack nothing! "Brad spoiling games?" Nada! Zip! And don't even get me started on the "Ryan mispronouncing game names" portion of the show.
 
But I'm not going to complain. I'm going to do something about it. And so, it's my great pleasure to introduce you to the rogue operation I've spent upwards of 35 minutes putting together:

 I MADE THE ART MYSELF AND IT'S THE BEST

Next week I'm hoping to get a special guest on the show, but I don't want to spoil it! Stay tuned, WiiWare and DSiWare faithful! Stay tuned.

Awesome! This part was one of the funniest parts of the bombcast.  Pretty dumb for them to cut it.

Posted by TripMasterMunky

Needs the wiiware/dsware music.

Posted by anbumakura

This needs to continue as this is the greatest podcast ever!  Special guests sound awesome too, it's so much better with other people's reactions in there.  I was so sad when it was cut from the Bombcast.  Yay Jeff!

Jeff. You are a man of your word. I respect that.

Sorry, I'm terrible with computers. How do I download this?

Wait what? Are you fuckin serious? I'm walking away from this. You can't make a bad thing cool. That's how Deadly Premonition got popular.

So true about Brad's disregard for spoiling, even if they are just hints, I have to fast forward so many parts of each podcast. Think I'll take a break from listening when 'Dead Space 2' comes out. In the words of Frank Costanza, "No! I like to go in fresh!.. Fresh!"

Free at last! Free at last! Good God almighty... is that disrespectful to say? Or is it just a bit much in general over a podcast? Either way, you're awesome Jeff. Keep up the good work.

WOO-WHOO! Ride that thang! 
 
This is fantastic, Jeff, although my mind clearly cannot accept the fact that this might be a real weekly podcast. My mind would be blown if it were so.

Perhaps the greatest thing ever. Renegade Jeff, bringing what the people want.

When the comments say "why" Giant Bomb says "Fuck Yeah, thats why"

Ground-fucking-beef. 
 
 I mean floor..

Edited by TepidShark

I just realized this is totally going to be the Game Room Quick Look of this year, isn't it? (In that it is the thing Jeff is really excited about but everybody else at the site hates & by everybody I mean Ryan.)

Jeff drew the mother fucking line and asked mother fuckers to STEP OVER IT.

Uhhhhh-mazing!

 We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore, duders. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the 19th of January, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the 19th of January will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice "Whooooo-Whoooooo!".  We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate The NintenDownload X-Press!

F*ck yeah!  
 
It's like an extra 40 minutes of podcast a week as even if they removed it from the Bombcast, they didn't trim down the running time of the latter. SWEET.

" I do want a Nintendo downloads podcast…Also, it needs more Wii Shop and DSi Ware music. "
Yeah, without that there's a bit of a weird "Guy shouting complete insanity into the internet" vibe that the segment isn't funny for. It'll add that bit of professionalism that will make it more listenable.
Posted by Dunchad

Oh Jeff. You so crazy.
Posted by XthecroX

.........YES.

Posted by NHLmaniac

Actually, I think no music makes everything sound more crazy.

Posted by fishmicmuffin

Things like this are why I'm glad the internet and Jeff Gerstmann exist simultaneously.  
 
There is a very long list of those 'things', by the way.

Posted by ocdog45

Jeff id you do this, where does it end? I hate that part of the bombcast but i will be listing to this.

Posted by DougQuaid

You bet your fucking ass there's a train coming through!  A speeding death train filled to the brim with green macaws! 4x4s! and if God answers my prayers, 3D notebooks!

People are gonna talk yang but keep rocking that shit, Jeff. I can't deal with a world where I don't know what's going on in Nintendo Download Land.

Posted by ExitDose

all lower case...indie.

Edited by BaconGames

Give him a break people.  I want to see you produce a podcast in half an hour.  He'll have plenty of time by next week to get his production values up.  He's confirmed a guest and he agrees with you that WiiWare and DSiWare music are essential.
 
EDIT:  JUST GOT THE BRILLIANT IDEA TO JUST PLAY THE DS SHOP MUSIC OVER THE PODCAST!

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

This idea?  Fucking awesome.  This is why I love Giant Bomb!

Better fucking believe there's beef.  I cannot wait to hear the reactions from the rest of the crew, especially Vinny since he wasn't in this week.
 
The train is pullin' out the station WHOO WHOO!
Posted by McGhee

I was pissed that your artful Nintendo performances were taken out of the podcast. 
 
P.S. Jeff, you are a genius and I love you.
