Welcome back listeners to another fully stuffed episode of Who Burned My Toast. We waste no time and dive into our thoughts on E3 and discuss our most anticipated games of the show.

We're asking you to send us in your requests for the games you want to know about and we'll report back with Amado's hands on feedback.

Musicast 05: Phantasy Star I & II



Phantasy Star is one of the most popular PSP games out there. On the Dreamcast too it was very popular. But before Phantasy Star went online it was just a sci-fi themed first person view RPG on the Sega Master System.

Some call it the greatest RPG series of it's time. Some call it the greatest RPG series period. Whatever the case for you, Phantasy Star is something you should take a lot more seriously in the future.

How many of you can remember playing any of the Phantasy Star games?

Phantasy Star I: Music Composer Tokuhiko Uwabo (bo).

Phantasy Star II: Music Composer Tokuhiko Uwabo (bo).

    Please let us know what you think of the new Musicast series and don't forget to send us in your requests for game soundtracks for us to feature. We hope you enjoy listening to the show.

    Ep 47: The End is Nigh!







    We love video games at Who Burned My Toast, but we also love to talk about the craziness that is going on in the world. This week we spend time discussing some of the signs of the Apocalypse that have lead us to believe the end of days are nigh. There is a lot of "information" out there and we try to get you mentally prepared for Judgment day on May 21st 2011. Have you seen any of this May 21st talk in your neighborhood?

    On the games front we are patiently waiting for E3 to arrive in the coming weeks. To pass the time, Brad has been playing Conduit 2 for Wii. The first game had a lot of potential and Wii fans have been waiting to see how this one was going to turn out. We let you know how we think it turned out.

    Musicast EP 04: Mega Man





    He's blue and cyan... MEGA MAN! Well on this North America game box art he's more of a yellow and bluish color, but that's beside the point. We go back to one of the greatest classics to ever grace the NES console and feature music from the first three games in the Mega Man (a.k.a Rockman) series.

    We hope that this episode brings back fond memories of the glory days when games were designed to kick your little kid ass. I believe most of us remember the good old days of challenging platformers and Mega Man was one of the best to come from the NES era.

    Nintendo makes it official, now let's really talk about Project Cafe.

    We can now officially confirm that at least two things are true about Nintendo's new console. In a recent investor meeting, Satoru Iwata revealed that Nintendo will be releasing the successor to the Wii sometime after April 2012. We can also confirm that Project Cafe/Stream or whatever you want to call it, will be revealed and playable in June at this years E3. Combine this with the fact that more 3DS games coming down the pipeline, it's starting to look like Nintendo is going to have a pretty decent showing at E3. Sorry Zelda Skyward Sword, looks like you may get bumped as the main event after last years botched stage demo.

    Other than that those few bits of information, we've got nothing but rumors and talk from "reliable" sources. So I don't feel like running down the list of things that could be true or not. But I do feel like there are some things that this new system is going to need to accomplish in order to be successful and I want to hear what you guys think about it.

    I feel like Nintendo is in somewhat awkward position at this juncture and may have had to push out a new system earlier than they really wanted to. Between the large drop in sales (don't worry Nintendo is still filthy rich) for the Wii and the ever waning support/sales of big third party developers. It's become clear to me that Nintendo saw that it was losing too much support and interest in the Wii brand overall. Plus lets face it, most Wii owners other than the hardcore adopters just don't buy as many games as PS3/360 owners; unless it involves gyrating your pelvis or turning New Super Mario Bros. into a drinking game.

    After the jump is a list of issues I think Nintendo needs to address in order help get this console streaming onto your faces... I mean living rooms around the world.

    Ep 46: Why does it say paper jam, when there is NO PAPER JAM!?




    Holy s#!t, it has been extremely busy in the world of gaming over the last two weeks. Nintendo confirmed at their investor meeting that they are indeed showing of their new console at E3 and will be releasing it sometime after April 2012. Then the big whopper lands at our feet. The PlayStation Network gets hacked and it looks like it's the biggest data breach in history. The PR nightmare for Sony is still happening as we speak, but more importantly it is certain your data has been stolen, so take the necessary steps to protect yourself.

    SEGA!
    It's not all doom and gloom on the podcast as we bring in a guest host, my cousin Jesse (unofficial Mortal Kombat Expert) to talk about our thoughts on the new Mortal Kombat. Is it a flawless victory?

    We also bring breaking news of a new console from Sega. We'll just let that bit of information stew in your brain for awhile. All this and much more on this weeks episode of Who Burned My Toast?
