Maybe you don’t need to catch them all. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we discuss the Pokemon fatigue that has prevented us from picking up the newly released Pokemon Black & White 2. Can you really have too much of a good thing? We also dig into an assortment of Wii U and 3DS news, including the first signs of trouble with the Miiverse, new Nintendo cameos in third-party games, and the latest eShop news. All that, plus rumors of a major Nintendo restructuring, await you in Episode 27!
We also want your take on the Pokemon franchise! Are we right for skipping the new entries in the series or are we making a huge mistake?
