Games we’re talking about this week
This week on Future Monkeys episode 53, Los, Beardy, and Jen as they talk about Picross 3D Round 2, along with all the news from the Nintendo Direct and Sony press release over the past week. There was a brief mention of Witcher 3 in there somewhere, too.
The Primate Weekly
Los took some really stellar notes for everything (with bullet points!) and the gang tried to get through everything, but it was the Thanksgiving dinner of news trying to fit on a very small plate. Here’s a brief rundown of what we saw:
- Nintendo Direct:
- StreetPass Mii Plaza update with new games and other perks
- Super Mario Maker and Yoshi’s Wooly World coming to 3DS
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf getting Amiibo support
- New Pikmin side-scroller announced for 3DS
- PS4 Slim drops 9/15/16 for $299
- PS4 Pro drops 11/10/16 for $399 – but it can’t play 4K Blu-rays?
- Mass Effect: Andromeda (excuse us while we clean up the mess from Los’s enthusiasm)
- PS4 gets an update next week to allow all games to be HDR compatible
- Miscellaneous topical links:
This week, Jen laments the fact that it was fall for two days over the weekend but it has returned to 90+ temperatures once again. She also managed to get a tan…but only on one side of her body.
Beardy located his missing drill! Buuuuut….it’s broken. At least the mystery is solved. And speaking of mysteries, the cause of his roof leak may have finally been identified as well – fingers crossed that he can finally get that fixed and move on with his leak-free life.
Los spent the weekend at his parents’ timeshare, which has been in the family since Los’ youth. He watched Dirty Grandpa and started the Halloween movie train with Practical Magic. There’s also a newly obtained fall wreath adorning his front door to remind him of what seasons used to be, since they don’t have those in Florida.

- Time is Up…NEXT! – Project Threeville
- Strings Attached – Project Threeville
We wish that we could provide a link to these guys, but unfortunately they’ve disappeared into the mists of time without a trace. They’re some old friends of Beardy’s who gave him permission to use their awesome music.
