    Hey Jason and Angel!

    Great show as always! All your hard work and dedication to a podcast every other week is really appreciated. Oh before I forget, thanks for sharing some other listeners stories, I really enjoyed Amanda’s, putting the N64 back in the box everyday, that’s dedication.

    I really hope that the NX is a as crazy-awesome as it sounds. I’m really interested and excited to see what 2016 has in store for us Nintendo-fans.

    I thought Nintendo handled the Game Awards in quite a classy-manner. The tribute to the late Iwata-san was well done. It was also really nice to see Nintendo get some recognition for the quality of their games. Namely Splatoon winning “Best Shooter” and “Best Multiplayer.” In those two categories, with so much major competition, it was nice to see the originality and fun of Splatoon getting recognized.

    I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the Final Smash Direct. I thought it was good, perhaps a bit bitter-sweet. While all good things come to end, it is sad to know that Smash DLC has finally ended. I did appreciated Sakurai-san’s comment that they started making DLC “after” the game was finished, it was a nice change from pretty-much all other companies. And while I do love Fire Emblem games, I think another Fire Emblem character may have been a stretch. While I’m still excited to see how Corrin plays, maybe representation from a different franchise would have been nice. Also not a fan of Bayonetta in general. But all in all very happy with the Final Smash Direct.

    Anyways, thanks again for such a great show, you guys are my favorite Nintendo show out there. Looking forward to the next podcast!
