Prepare to blast off with episode 49 of Connectivity!
First, we travel to a far and distant place called Australia, where Nicholas Bray and Andrew Brown probe the patrons of the Manifest anime convention to see how excited they are for Wii U. Unfortunately, Nick and Andrew's immune systems weren't used to the disgusting atmosphere of a convention, so both were defeated by the common cold.
After that, Neal, Zach, and Scott receive cryptic messages from outer space in the form of listener mail. The signal seems to inquire about Nintendo picking up more western second party developers, what GBA and DS games a newcomer should play, and how more games can utilize asynchronous multiplayer. More importantly than all of that, though; the signal appears to be coming closer...
Next, Nicholas Bray emerges from the TARDIS, fully regenerated and ready to host another one of his N-Focus segments, focusing this week on GoldenEye 007. 15 years after the game's release, Nick talks about the legacy of the game and shares some of his and other staffers' memories. He can't stay long, though, because the Daleks are afoot.
After the outro, please stick around for a bonus segment all about space with Dr. Jonathan Metts. He answers a number of your questions, from the benefits of privatizing space flight to the effects of weightlessness on the body, before sharing an absolutely DELICIOUS recipe for his world (and beyond) famous moon cheese spread. The secret ingredient? Sage!
That's it for this week's show. Click here to send us listener mail. Oh, and not to spoil anything, but next week's episode is number 50, and you can expect a lot of fun things then. So be sure not to voyage into deep space and accidentally stumble upon a portal to Hell before then. Toodles!
