Nintendo Times Radio 34: Go Directly To Jail, Do Not Collect $200

It’s time for another episode of Nintendo Times Radio! Some of us played a lot of games, while others (ahem, James) took a gaming break. It’s almost all Nintendo talk this time around, with an extended discussion on the discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition and the recent Nintendo Direct. Enjoy!
