Episode 28: Virtuous Rewards

On November 4, 2012 by Jason Rechtman, Angel Salado, and Kevin Gomez

We’re all about rewards in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast. We share our impressions of Virtue’s Last Reward, the 3DS entry in the point-and-click Zero Escape series, along with our thoughts on eShop puzzle-platformer NightSky and NES classic Ghosts’n Goblins. On the news front, Nintendo released its latest financials and then rewarded fans with an onslaught of news that includes new details on the Wii U’s first-party launch titles, the first glimpse of the Wii U ad campaign, and a variety of 3DS tidbits.

The rewards don’t stop there, though. We are also rewarding you, the listener, with a giveaway! We have two special Wreck-It Ralph t-shirts that we are giving away in honor of the movie’s release this weekend. To win one of these shirts, simply leave a comment below with your thoughts on the movie or on this episode of the podcast. We will chose two comments at random and reward each comment’s author with a shirt. We’ll also be featuring your takes on the movie, and announcing our two winners, in the next episode of the podcast.

To make sure sure you don’t miss a thing, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and follow us on Twitter @RandomNintendo. If you would like to learn more about any of the topics discussed on today’s episode, we have provided links below. Enjoy!

    I’ve been dying to see Wreck-It-Ralph, but I haven’t had the opportunity yet. I’ve had at least 2 co-workers rave about it. One has even paid to see it twice so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on the podcast guys! I just started listening about a month ago. With the Wii U coming out, I’ve been Nintendo obsessed and your podcast definitely helps to keep me informed of what is going on.
