Cue the lights, it's time for the November studio episode of the Famicast! Hopefully you guys enjoyed the last episode, either in audio or video form, if you missed it live this time keep your eyes and/or RSS feeds peeled for the next one!

But enough about that, on to this episode! Danny talks about the end game of Captain Toad (spoiler free). Find out if he thinks it was worth the cash. JC goes next with an extended story about how he finally acquired a WiiU for a suspiciously low price. Ty then talks about his time with Trend Setter: Girl's Mode - the fashion simulator for girls! One part of that is fake, or is it real?

An extended news segment discusses the rather awesome VC releases in Japan, including four Donkey Kong games! Lots of side-topics come out of the segment including the state of the Japanese music industry, comics, and Danny buying every piece of Theatrhythm DLC.

Next up is the regular (and world famous) segment of Fake or Real, now complete with its own theme song provided by listener Perry Burkum! Mr. Catdrugs takes it away with his game show where everyone tries to guess if the crazy sounding game is, well, you get the idea by now. Frogs and barf are mentioned, naturally.

The show wraps up with your listener feedback; we had some great Life in Japan questions, and some….questionable ones too. We also had our first iTunes review since going solo. Give us one and we'll read it out on the show, too!

Famicast a go-go baby!

While Danny writes up the song list for this episode (seriously anytime now) we're already planning ahead for the next live show! Great song choices this episode by the way, don't you think?  :cool;

Danny will be returning to his motherland in late December (not permanently, unfortunately), so we're hoping to get the 2 episodes for this month done before then.

If you fancy throwing some small questions/taunts at us live on Google Hangouts, look out for the reminder article on the site soon, or follow us on Twitter @thefamicast. If you'd rather prepare a more though-provoking question to be answered in length during "Life in Japan" send it to famicast@nintendoworldreport.com and we'll file it away for episode 47.

If you listen very carefully you might be able to hear Annual Gift Man getting ready for the big day....

Please to enjoy, and please understand!
