We have a lot to talk about this week, including several of the announcements and videos that got shown during the Nintendo Direct, Xbox Fit requiring a subscription, and you didn’t think I’d let a podcast go by without discussion on Steam OS and its controller, did you?

    I love the new update, but an annoying bug is that on Youtube when you play a video, it says device isn’t supported. So I have to embed.

    • Tim Chaten

      YouTube has moved to aggressively forcing mobile devices to use the official YouTube app or mobile version of website

      • Dj

        Oh, thats stupid. Well thanks anyway

    • Shota

      change user agent

    • bizzy gie

      Same happened to me! How do you embed?! Please tell me!

      • kevin nun—-

        ‘Settings’ on browser and tap ‘user agent’. Choose an agent like ‘Internet Browser – Touch’. Just ignore the Flash warnings and tap on the video you want to watch.

        • bizzy gie

          So can I watch Flash videos now?

  • The True Gamer

    Haven’t watched it yet…but I can’t wait! Best part of the week is the GameFans Podcast!

  • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

    Oh wow, this was my 900th article for Wii U Daily. Such a milestone. :)

    • Zuxs13

      Nice job. Keep them coming.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      First time I watched any of these. I think you did a great job Ashley. :)

    • mojack411

      Holy crap! I didn’t even realize there were that many articles on the site period! Congratulations!

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      best writer on the site. Keep on keepin on! :3

    • smithjases

      it looks like functionality with youtube has severely been limited on gamepad overnight

    • Zakariyya Al-Quran

      Your profile pic looks way more different than in the vid

  • Tim Chaten

    So glad you guys made the move to video – will be watching on my Apple TV tonight while having dinner – already subscribed :)

    • KosmoCrisis

      That’s high praise! Were we just invited to have dinner at your house?

  • Petri

    “Pachter says PS4 will sell better than XBO”

    You need to be analyst to tell that?
    Though now that Pachter jinxed it, it might not happen…

    • Magnus Eriksson

      actually it might. He is kind of high profile. Shouldnt underestimate that.

      • Arthur Jarret

        He’s too ugly and male to follow on youtube or for me to care enough to pretend to listen to him.

  • Guest

    Nick Kosmides is black?!?!

    I would of bet money that he was a tall skinny white dude. Totally threw me. No problem with it, it’s just that I listened to all 16 previous podcasts and I imagined the faces to go with the voices.

    • misterhearn

      Nick isn’t black, but that *other* guy is. Thanks for watching, hope you enjoyed it.

      • MetroidZero

        So…How many single bricks were in the original Super Mario? Haha :P

    • KosmoCrisis

      Lol. Wow, I’ve labeled before but never black. Thanks for being there for them all. Join us for next week’s live video podcast if you’re around at 1pm PST. We will figure this video thing out together.

      • MetroidZero

        That Arnold S. impression: LOL.

        Edit: And good favorite character choice lol

        Edit 2: Was it Metroid Zero Mission ans Fusion?

        • Andrew Chambers

          It would have to be those, there weren’t any other Metroid games on the GBA

        • KosmoCrisis

          Yes! Absolutely loved playing through both games multiple times. Zero Mission was the remake too I believe, so that was a huge win for me. Plus the original is bundled on the same cart!

          • MetroidZero

            Awesome! :)

  • bizzy gie

    If that’s Ashley in the video, then who is in your profile pic?

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      Umm, me? My hair isn’t down in the video because of the headset.

      • bizzy gie

        Ah. I see.

      • Angelshots

        Holy angel shot batman! Ashley what random decent looking human being did you google to get your profile pic? Or who did the photoshop work cause I could use a miracle worker.

    • Thomas Vienna

      Also, I think she looks different because she’s wearing glasses.

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    I love how it has a little logo by all your names :3 Nice addition

  • Adrian

    Are you actually in Redmond Mark @MisterHearn? I sometimes look at houses there..but haven’t decided where I want to buy yet.
    And yeah I’ve been playing Skyward Sword. It’s a great game! I tried playing it on the gamepad in gamepad offscreen wii mode. It’s hilariously awesome, but not practical at all. The Wii+Gamepad mode is really only useful for games that use the Wii Classic controller/Pro IMO.

    • misterhearn

      No, I’m in California. Thanks for watching/listening.

  • Andrew Chambers

    I can’t see Link as a favorite Nintendo character, there’s too much variation. Unless I miscounted there are ten different Links, so you need to at least specify which one.

  • YogiGRB

    nice vidcast guy’s and gall , can’t wait till next one

    • KosmoCrisis

      neither can I. I’ve been coming up with some crazy ideas, just depends on what I’m allowed to accomplish.

      • YogiGRB

        Keep up the good work, i’m a NiSoX (Nintendo, Sony, Xbox) fanboy (or SoNiX sometimes haha) so i love these casts

  • BIG Franky

    Nick, if you think the water scooping game looks ridiculous then you obvi never played Wii Party or understand the concept of it…. the mini games are built around silly actions that make a group of people laugh uncontrollably. its a VERY fun game for a group of people.

    • KosmoCrisis

      You’re right, I haven’t been able to get my grubby hands on Wii Party yet. I just got a copy of Disney Party for GameCube, that’s how behind on partying I am. Though, my opinion of the minigame and how it’s suggested to be played is kosher. “Ridiculous” is the best way to put it. Doesn’t mean it won’t be fun, silly, or a blast to play. It’s so over the top, it’s flat out ridiculous!
