LogoIn our pre-WWDC/E3 show, we spend a lot of time talking about just how amazing Battleheart Legacy is before Jared and Mike go off the deep end on some insane Nintendo tangent that somehow involved the Oculus Rift. I don't even know, I think my brain rebooted. Oh, and of course we cover other cool news and talk about our plans for the following weeks covering both events.

Don't forget to shoot us emails with any questions, feedback, or anything else relevant or irrelevant to podcast@toucharcade.com. We read 'em all, even if they don't make it into the podcast. As always, you can listen to us with the links below... And if you like what you hear, please subscribe and/or drop us a review in iTunes. Much appreciated!

    The iTunes link isn't working. Maybe I need to give it a few more hours. It's not showing up on Podcasts app yet. Can't wait to listen though!

      Got it. I got it. Hopefully it'll make yard work go quicker.

    Uh, guys, the 'selling single cards' for Magic is actually, well, you're cheating. You're supposed to buy them in the packs, if people rip open the pack and fish out the cards to sell on E-Bay, then you're breaking the 'rules' of a TCG.

    If that's how you make your deck, then you're a cheater. Deal with it.

      Isn't that the 'trading' part?

      • chrisbrady

        No, that`s not the issue. I said 'selling'. Trading an Angel of a Dragon is the whole point, you know, trading. But buying pack for the sole of opening and selling them individually is not cheating, those who buy them are cheating, because they're bypassing the whole 'random' aspect. Hearthstone is actually truer to the intent of what Magic wants to achieve.

      Wait, so in your eyes literally EVERY Magic player who plays at a more competitive level than casually at Friday Night Magic is cheating? What? You realize when you go to actual Wizards sanctioned competitive rule enforcement level events the play area is rimmed by countless merchants buying/selling cards yeah?

      The rules of Magic say nothing about buying cards. That's something you just made up. You can't "cheat" if it's an unwritten fake rule. Have you read "Playing to Win"? The term "scrub" describes exactly what you are doing.

    I really think you should reconsider your stance on Wii U and please keep an open mind. Personally I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, it does have games selection for hardcore gamer and more so at this point than the parallel in Wii. On the other hand I also disagree with you saying that it won't appeal to gf or grandmas, Nintendo Land and Wii Party U are always a winner when we have people over, it's definitely still the best system for local multiplayer fun.

    Where I thought Nintendo dropped the ball is definitely on their marketing, as they didn't advertise the gamepad feature for off-tv play. I wasn't even aware of that feature at first and ended up loving it as just about all the games can be played on the tablet alone without needing the TV, the system is also done well with much less lag than the PS4 remote play.

    (Btw now you can get a refurbished wii u straight from Nintendo for just $200. It does says refurbished but Nintendo standard is really high and it comes with a warranty. I have a suspicion that most of these are actually excess stocks and actually new.)
