    Firstly, a point of contention/clarification (and I’m going pretty deep down the rabbit hole here): CAPCOM. IS. NOT. FOR. SALE. Capcom (or more specifically Capcom’s board) DID vote not to renew their hostile takeover plan/strategy. First, what did this mean before? It meant that, IN THE EVEN OF A HOSTILE TAKEOVER, Capcom had a plan in place to ATTEMPT to prevent it, or at least make it a less viable/valuable option. These plans typically include actions like trying to have the board buy up majority shares of the stock or dump valuable IPs/assets for cheap devaluing the brand/stock. Also of note, this plan had nothing to do with a friendly company approaching a negotiating table with an offer for buyout or merger. Now, Capcom simply has no specific plan in place, BUT CAN STILL DO ANY OF THE “TYPICAL” ACTIONSTO PREVENT A HOSTILE TAKEOVER, if they so choose. Also, Microsoft CANNOT buy Capcom: Japanese law PROHIBITS any foreign persons or companies from owning anything in Japan. Period. Now that THAT is all clear.

    How could you guys talk about and rank the best E3 “moments” and not include the unveiling of Mario Maker?!?!? For shame…!

    On another note, has anyone played Moon Chronicles for 3DS? And more specifically, played it with the Circle Pad Pro? I was a little disappointed with the “speed” of the camera controls/response. Was anyone else?

    Lastly, have a question for anyone/everyone: Everybody and their brother has gone over E3 OVER AND OVER…to death really. So, without analyzing all of E3, do you think Nintendo validated/proved the GamePad? As a pretty major/devout Wii U fan and supporter, I don’t think so. Nintendo did make it very clear they aren’t ditching the GamePad, and they did prove the Wii U is/is going to be worthwhile, but I don’t think they proved the GamePad itself. What do you guys think?

    Who pissed in RisnDevil’s Corn Flakes?

    Technicalities aside, Capcom is for sale.

    Hello everyone. I just recently started listening to Infendo Radio podcasts yet again. I have a question, which may or may not have been explained in past episodes(I’ve listened to almost everything post E3), but I’m curious so here goes. My question is “What is your guy’s favourite game at E3?” I suppose I can also ask one more since you guys like when you get them. One of my favourite games that I saw at E3 was Splatoon, so here’s a quick question about it. “Do you think any other modes, or maps will be available? Do you think it’ll draw in any new people to the shooter genre?” And finally one last question that’s probably been on everyone’s radar. Smash Brothers! Okay this is a 4 part questions I suppose…”What newcomers/veterans that they haven’t announced will be in the game? What modes(not announced) will be in both versions? What stages do you want to see for both versions that haven’t been announced? Finally, which version are you more interested in(3DS, or Wii U)?
    Thanks. Loving the podcast! Have a safe/fun summer!

    @Lou – No one pissed in my cereal. And if you want to talk technicalities, then TECHNICALLY Capcom is ONLY for sale for ONE REASON: they are a publicly traded company. If you don’t want to talk technicalities, then they aren’t. Let me help you with a metaphor:

    I own a piece of land in the wild west (Capcom). I know that if I let squatters (company interested in a hostile takeover) stay on my land, they can end up owning it by law. SO, I make a plan: my sons and I will patrol my land daily, with guns, and chase off or shoot any squatters we find (our hostile takeover plan). This works for years with no squatters. Since no one has tried to squat on my land, and because we are getting tired of patrolling all my land, we decide to stop patrolling (do not vote to continue our hostile takeover countermeasures). Now, if we do happen to see or be told about squatters, my sons and I CAN AND MOST LIKELY WILL ride out and chase the squatters off. Just because I don’t plan to do so beforehand doesn’t mean that I’m selling my land.

    And as for why I may have come off like I had an attitude or problem: I write the way I do to add emphasis, usually to draw someones attention to something they don’t seem to want to notice. This story in particular has been (incorrectly) reported and bandied about entirely too much, and I was just hoping to clarify it for everyone.

    I worked for a company that did the same thing and within 6 months it was sold. I think if Nintendo can make a decent offer, it can be had.

    But will they? Nintendo seems to be more interested in making hardware no one wants instead of games everyone is begging for.
