Boner culture.

This week we spend some time chastising the folks who use boner culture without a hint of irony, while also delving into the Nintendo Direct, the eShop shutdown, and some truly bizarre quotes from Platinum Games’ recent interviews. Alongside that we spend some time talking about Jason’s time playing It Takes Two with his wife and I delve into Trails of Fire. If that sounds fun then strap in for another episode of Frosty Canucks.

A note: this will be the last episode that we’re recording for an undetermined amount of time. Jason does the overwhelming majority of work on the podcasts and does great work editing them down into somewhat coherent pieces of audio. However, after editing 3 hours (or more) of audio for the past year and a half he needed a break. It is for this reason that I made the call to go on break until he feels up to the task of editing again. Also, when we return we’re going to be aiming to have a shorter podcast (around 60-80 minutes), which is, admittedly, something we’ve both wanted to do for a while.

That all said, thank you for listening to the podcast and we look forward to seeing you again whenever that happens to be.
