In this episode of the Cheerful Ghost Roundtable we talk about what we've been playing, the latest Humble Nintendie Bundle & the latest craze with free to play games. In this episode you can find out how much our lifetime spend is on free to play games and if we regret any money we've put into them. You're welcome internet!

Retroblazer is the Wolfenstein/Doom clone I was thinking of:

Nintendo doesn't have a paid subscription service. They do have a service that you can sign up for and to access some things, you may need to log into that service. They are currently working on changing it a bit, though, there has been some news of it recently. They frequently have sales going on, which I can see from a notification on the game pad (the Home button lights up blue).

Other than sales, Nintendo has other promotions which people can participate in and receive digital download codes. When the new Smash Bros. games came out, one of the bonus rewards of registering both games at Nintendo's site was that I could get Mewtwo for free when they released him as a character in the new games. The games were out for quite a while before that DLC was released and Nintendo emailed me the codes to download that DLC for both systems.

I think it's cool to see Nintendo in a Humble Bundle. I did see news of this before, but I'm not familiar with any of the games included. I'd like to see more Nintendo Bundles, though. HB seems to be a great way to buy video games!

Who's setting up the God Mode event?

I would, but my computer is 2000 miles away. If you guys have a God Mode event without me, I'll cry bitter tears.

(Just kidding. I'd be crying anyway, because of the whales.)
