That's All Folks!!
Over that past two years or so it's been my absolute pleasure to put together what I think was a pretty darn unique show about a game console that doesn't get nearly as much credit among gaming enthusiasts as it deserves. During that time, I tried to touch on some of the games that don't get the exposure and instant credibility that games in the Mario or Zelda franchises normally get. In particular, I enjoyed covering gems like Order Up!, Deadly Creatures, MadWorld, Zack & Wiki, and FFF: Chocobo's Dungeon--games that got very little attention and practically no respect from the gaming press. And although my enthusiasm for Wii hasn't slowed down at all, you've probably guessed by the lack of recent shows that the Wii Minute Radio show has come to an end.
For those of you who took the time to download and listen to my little show, you have my deepest and sincerest gratitude. The kind words of encouragement I've received from folks via e-mail, on the forums, and even on the YouTube site have made this a heck of a fun ride. I've enjoyed reading your e-mails, and made a lot of great friends along the way. Recommending a great game is like sharing a treasured book with someone--you almost get to enjoy the experience through that person for the very first time all over again.
For those of you who enjoyed the show and are interested in what's next for Alex J. Lopez, I'm happy to announce that I've joined my friends Shane R. Monroe and Chris Hentschel of Dual Screen Radio to produce an all new gaming show, the MonroeWorld GameCast. Those of you who know Shane from RetroGaming Radio and Passenger Seat Radio (and a few episodes of Wii Minute Radio too!) and Chris from Dual Screen Radio know what huge Nintendo fans they are, so there'll be plenty of Wii and DS coverage on the show. But it doesn't end there--we'll be covering all facets of gaming from Retro and Classic gaming to modern consoles and handhelds to smartphones and just about any platform you can cram a game onto. Be sure to check us out at MonroeWorld.com and check out the latest show at MonroeWorld GameCast.
But before I wrap this up, I'd like to give a special thanks to Shane R. Monroe for his guidance and support at the creation of and throughout the production of Wii Minute Radio. I've followed video games in one way or another for the last 30+ years, and throughout that time I've never met a more talented, yet selfless individual as Shane.
Once again, it's been a lot of fun and I hope you'll try out the new show.
Be safe and have fun!
Alex J. Lopez
