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:

If you'd like to subscribe to this obviously superior podcast, the RSS feed for it is RIGHT HERE. THROW DOWN THE SHACKLES OF YOUR OPPRESSORS AND LET FREEDROM REIGN! 
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.

There are times in history that will be looked upon in retrospect as forks in the road where things took a turn for the better and looked a little bit brighter, the day the Nintendo Xpress took to the internet will be looked upon as one of those times.  When the Wiiware music was added will also be looked upon in the same fashion.  Thank you Jeff, no more will we live under the tyrannical rule of Ryan's hate for this segment but instead we will be free.  ;)

if whiskey media starts a premium premium subscription(not typo, its the premium's premium), do we get a 'Nintendocast' with the other 3?
Extra money is for the compensation of those other guy's time. Also extra money is to make sure those other fuckers contribute.
Ima talkin bout joo Bradley Shoemaker of one of them Carolinas.

This is the best thing ever. Try to get at least one person to suffer through making the podcast with you though.

This is the greatest thing. 
But you know what I love most? The "X" in the logo isn't even over the X button.

Jeff, i fucking love you. Brilliant idea. 
i love the subtle, but not necessarily intentional, echo in the background. also the dsi/wii ware music would be much appreciated .

It's the only reason I listen to the end of the Bombcast, you just need the snide comments of an audience.

Posted by audiosnag

Hells yeah! Eff you other guys!
I'm so happy.

Posted by Hypermonkey262

It's just not the same without the DSI store music :(

Posted by Xeiphyer

Its not as fun when I don't hear the other guys joking about them too. 
Part of the fun is when Jeff and Ryan bounce jokes off eachother.

My favourite part of the Bombcast too, but a part of it used to be hearing Ryan and Vinny react to the readings, and Brad completely bummed out about it, soooooooooo
while this is awesome, it will be even better if they're back in the room!

"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! "
The train comments have me laughing pretty hard. Nintendownload X-press is so fucking awesome. Thanks Jeff!
