Music Quiz

Honestly, I didn't think the crew was "on" this week. This week's news in Nintendo wasn't that great, really, and the Questiums section was really lacking in steady conversation. I didn't think the submitted music for this week's Music Quiz had very many enjoyable tunes. This weeks Pokemon reading, and Kirby and Mom Brain's sections of What Did You Play This Week were the best parts of the whole podcast, for me.

A rare flop of a GoNintendo Podcast.
