    The Door Stop....

    It should be called 3DS XY. That way, you will know which games to buy for your kids (Hint: Starts with a P and ends with 'Okémon") AND you will know which dimensions the portable can display. Say "no" to the weird Z dimension!

    The bed-shitter.

    2DS should be named 3DS J, of junior, since it's focused on young kids and still a 3DS (even without 3D).

    Thanks for pronouncing my name differently every time it's read on the podcast.... that's what I get for making a stupid username when I was still in high school.... Considering that the 2ds is technically a single screen separated by a piece of plastic, I would have called it just S. It could stand for screen. Or slice, like a slice of cake, or slicing with an axe, which is what it also looks like. You're welcome nintendo.

    Nice episode, I haven't had time to listen for a while so it's good to see the show's still going strong. As for the QOTW, in light of the fact that the 2DS is technically only a single display, regardless of what you think of the "2D" tag, even the "DS" part is a bit of a misnomer now, right? I would call it the Nintendo SSSSSS, Nintendo 6S for short and to give it's full title, the Nintendo Single Screen Superficially Seperated by a Subdivisional Shell. It's not as catchy but at least it's more accurate. XD

    3DS Lite seems like a good name to me. In addition to being physically smaller and lighter, the system drops unnecessary luxuries such as the ability to close, and the ability to display 3D media.
  • shawksta - September 1, 2013 12:13 a.m.

    Short but sweet. Yeah your kinda forgetting GTA V there guys on what the Wii U isnt getting. Im still defending Super Mario 3D World, but your right about the name. ANTISTA PIZZA MMMMMM XD DEM WOMEN QUESTIONS
  • shawksta - September 1, 2013 12:19 a.m.

    QOTW: The XDSY Because your only going to buy it anyway because your child is forcing you for Pokemon X and Y
  • supergiraffe - August 31, 2013 8:18 p.m.

    I'd call it the Haberdasher. No real reason, I just like the word.

    I thought it was hilarious how that lady pronounced 2Dees and 3Dees, but after you said it a bunch, it sounds natural. #2deesfolife Also, I thank you Hollander for bringing the Deals jingle, but goddamit, it's just not the same without the OoT shop music in the background. Please put it in in the future. Also, the jingle should end with a gun loading and then the RE4 guys saying "What are you BUYIN'"

    Ah Greg, you bringing up the corrections bit warms my heart. It shows me that you really do care about us, the fans, and that the mighty Henniger will always go above and beyond. Truly a shining example for community managers across the land. You got the correction backwards, mind you, but I love you anyways. As for the QotW..... I'd say Nintendo couldn't go better then he Nintendo 2DIE. The 'DIE' bit standing, of course, for Doesn't Incinerate Eyes. I feel the name of 2DIE would really set parents at ease, ensuring them that Nintendo has children's safety in mind.

    I think the code name during development was the Nintendo "Why the fuck not?". They should've stuck with it.
  • archnite - August 31, 2013 7:36 a.m.

    QOTW: Et Tu DSus?
  • DarthEnderX - August 30, 2013 11:36 p.m.

    QotW: The Super PokeDex.
  • GOD - August 30, 2013 11:19 p.m.

    Isn't it obvious? It's after the 3DS, so clearly it's would be the Nintendo 4DS. The "4D" representing the fourth dimension, time, which it clearly travels backwards into. Gentlemen, the future isn't right around the corner, it's right behind you.
  • g1rldraco7 - August 30, 2013 9:30 p.m.

    Where's Tom Magrino? He wasn't on the last podcast and don't worry Greg I consider you a friend :). I would call this Nintendo's attempt at a Ipad or The Nintendo Brick since that's what it looks like to me. I bet I can make a barbeque grill out of these bricks XD
  • GenderBender_9000 - August 30, 2013 9:08 p.m.

    I would have just called it the Assertive Mini Interactive Lopsided Console. Or A.S.S.M.I.L.C for short. But hey thats just me.
