Gaming Trend Podcast 12//19//13 — A distinguished discussion of this, the Year of Luigi

Good morrow, everyone. You have stumbled upon a gentlemanly discussion of the year that was. The year that brought us new interactive entertainments, and new consoles on which to play them. The year that brought us introspective exploration of our community as a whole. The year that brought us games that could have spent a few more fortnights preparing for their big gala releases. And of course, lest we forget, the Year of Luigi.

If you would care to regale us with your own tales of excitement and wonder in this, the Year of Luigi, please remit your courteous response to our esteemed email address: [email protected]. If you enjoyed this expertly crafted wax recording, we humbly beseech you to subscribe to us on iTunes’ fine podcast emporium, or leave us a brief message on the page you found this.

Podcast produced by Atlas Burke.  Music from Mega Man 2.

I've been gaming since my dad made the bad decision of buying me a Nintendo when I was four years old. Every day I'd find myself with my face glued to a TV screen, punching away at buttons, getting furious with Bowser, Dr. Wily, and those freakin' birds in Ninja Gaiden. Since then I have failed to get my parents to play any board game with me, I sold my full copy of Earthbound with box and guide for $300 to some dude in Austria for rent money, and I still believe in Nintendo even after all these years.
