Nintendo Downloads have over the past months been increasingly better than past, I think that the current 3DS ware lineup is better than the whole DSiware catalog.

Should they come back in to the Bombcast?

#3 Posted by DeF (4957 posts) -

Not sure about including them in the Bombcast since they don't seem to put out these ridiculously hilarious descriptions anymore. But they should at least pay a little more attention to what comes out.

Since they never looked at the PC version of VVVVVV, it would've been nice to watch Brad in painful rage during a quick look of the 3DS version, for example.

As part of the new releases segment? Sure. As the running joke? Not a chance in hell.

@Hizang: The guys have been pretty good about highlighting 3DSWare's notable releases, either through the "What'ya been playin'?" section or through Quicklooks. And...

I think that the current 3DS ware lineup is better than the whole DSiware catalog.

That's not saying much.

I know, thats the point. I'm saying that thats why they should look at the 3DS ware stuff.

Pretty sure Jeff said they're all videos now or something so it's not as funny

For the love of God, not return as in Jeff shouting them!

No. I liked it when they where there own thing. The bombcast is already pushing 3 hours. I almost never have time to listen to it. I would rather have them break it into another podcast. I would listen to it more often then the bombcast.

I think with the jump in quality Nintendo's online offerings seems to be having recently we will stop getting the truly artful descriptions of the titles that back in the day the world needed to hear.

If nothing else they should take the best of the bunch releasing in a week to limit it to a few games as sometimes there were quite a lot coming out each week during the nintendo download xpress.

Godspeed, Conductor Jeff. You will not be forgotten.

Reading the nintendo downloadables were some of the most memorable parts of bombcasts!

Generalissimo Jeff! Moon Face and Silky the Fairy! My Notebook! Those stupid Nintendo themed clocks! POW BLOCK ANYONE?!

How can you want less of this, and more stupid e-mails sent in by you jackasses?

#21 Posted by pjacobson21 (198 posts) -

I know it was completely irrelevant, but the way they read those downloads was easily my favourite part of the podcast at the time. Too many times I was made a fool laughing out loud in a public place listening to the bombcast because of it.

They changed the text that accompanies the games, so it would be way less funnier now.

I would like for it to return if it was still funny, but the descriptions have changed and the bombcast is already at 3 hours. We need the NDX.

What if Jeff read them with a british accent?

#25 Posted by Ramone (2976 posts) -

Yes and I sort of wish the emails section was a bit longer but it's up to them I guess.

I still don't understand why it went away and who was complaining about it. I hate Nintendo games but that part of the show was always hilarious.

They took to long to read and the podcast was getting longer and longer. Nintendo also stopped putting out the press release with all the stupid descriptions. That's why it went away.
