This week Andrew Eisen and E. Zachary Knight are joined by Jeremy Powers (who you may know better here on GamePolitics as ‘Zen’), who talks about the feel-good story of this past week: finally being able to play video games with his daughter. Using the second screen of the Wii U, Jeremy’s daughter Jennifer (who has a vision impairment) was finally able to play New Super Luigi U with her family using the GamePad as her own personal screen. Jeremy talks about this family milestone and shares more details on some other things he’s tinkering with that have been inspired by this situation.
Also this week on the show, the crew talks about the Nintendo Wii U price cut, the latest GamePolitics poll, and the curious case of a new hand-held from Nintendo (the 2DS) that ditches the form factor design, the 3D capabilities, and about $40 off the price tag of the 3DS to help build out the installed base of the platform.
Finally, the Super PAC crew would like to welcome a new addition to our team: Jose Betancourt. Jose is a man of many talents; he serves as the community manager for the ECA’s social media, operates Let’s Talk About Games, and is involved in too many podcasts to list here. Jose will be helping us with audio editing and his general expertise in podcasting. Given that he’s been doing it for over eight years, I think we’re all in good hands!
