Yes, there are some spoilers.  No, you shouldn't care.

Our beloved Director, Steven "Windyman" Rodriguez, joins us for the first thirty minutes to spill all the beans on Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  We ask lots of questions, get lots of answers, and try to convince Jon that he shouldn't be afraid of the game.  Then we fulfill the rest of the episode's title with a brief and hilarious debate on the Super Bowl, led by fanatical foreigners, Greg Leahy and Jon Lindemann.    


Then the normal show begins, with a healthy New Business (bid on Jonny's auction here) and loads of great forum posts and reader mail.  Keep it coming, please!  Our old friend and former RFN host, Karl Castaneda, also shows up with an audio review of No More Heroes against the backdrop of a song called "No More Heroes".    


Besides devoting many hours to editing this long, complex podcast, James has made some improvements to the audio files.  The AAC format is now enhanced with chapters and photos, and the MP3 bit rate has been reduced to make the files smaller.

Listening to the show now.

By the way, if you guys liked those songs, the first one played is indeed a song called "No More Heroes." It's by a band called The Stranglers. You should all recognize the second song, but if you don't, it's "Heroes," by David Bowie, which was chosen NOT ONLY because the first song ran out of time before I stopped jabbering, but ALSO because No More Heroes was originally just called Heroes.

Anyway, yeah, that was probably the last time my voice will come out of your speakers while you're listening to RFN. Live it up, haters.

Jonny probably just didn't change the episode in the URL when he used last week's article as a template. The correct URL is:

Myt roommate has Brawl. SSE is NOT average.
Carmine Red, Associate Editor

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

For the record, I haven't played most of my 3rd party games yet. In fact I haven't played many of my 1st party games yet!

I have to agree about Brawl, my hype dropped a bit after seeing the clones return, especially of Ganondorf, but also like what was said the rest of the game, especially the levels are AMAZING.

As far as I can tell, the MP3 feed is correct.  It definitely has the URL of the new episode.  Actually, I may have forgotten to update the direct download links in the article, so I'll check on that right away.

By the way, you can use the feeds to automatically download new episodes even if you have some strange aversion to iTunes, which is a very good media player anyway.  There are many other programs that will let you load up podcast feeds.

LOL Crimm isn't hardcore enough for Zack and Wiki.
Windy, Cassamassina (or was it Bozon?) mentioned the same failures to connect that you did in his Brawl previews. (You should email some of your fellow journalists to play Smash Bros online)

It sounds like Sonic and the Secret Rings.  I'm sure the stickers would help with the movement rate.

Lies Lies.  No new feature.

Not really a multimedia machine because think about the PS3.  I mean remote play, Web Browsing, CD/DVD/BluRay, Media Streaming, Multiformat of Music and Video Playback, DVR in Europe, etc.

I use to vote in all of them but when I got the PS3 I sort of slipped out of that.

Dewy's Adventure, Excite Truck, Super Monkey Ball, Sonic and the Secret Ring, Marble Madness, Trauma Center, etc.

Hotter than Daisy, anyway.

Y'know the British guy is very up on American stuff (real Football and Ron Paul and the Gold standard)

I on the other hand, know nothing about Soccer and I forget the name of Britian's current PM.
