Hosting, as always, is Tom "Champion" Champion. Flanking is news editor Wesley "Soundwave" Yin-Poole, and watching his six is Ellie "shipping report" Gibson. Don't worry, it'll all become clear. Perhaps.

This week, we chat about the Nintendo 3DS, the launch party of which Wes attended last week. What do we fink of the 3DS? Do we like its games? Is it worth your hard-earned cash? Listen to find out.

Following that guff there's some heated debate on US boss Reggie's comments that Nintendo won't do business with garage developers – and this week's fallout.

After that we take a trip to Sandy Isle. This week reader Ian "I don't work for magazines, really" Maggs tells us the video games he'd like to be shipwrecked with. Hilarity ensues.

The third-ever Metabet winner is announced and there's your chance to win a copy of downloadable game Hard Corps: Uprising.
