The Weekly Stuff #175 – Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who Departure and Wii U/3DS Retrospective

Episode Summary

Sean and Jonathan discuss the announcement that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who, offer a small Wii U retrospective ahead of the Nintendo Switch launch, and much more!

Episode Notes

This week brings us our first Doctor Who topic of the year – albeit not one we hoped to talk about for quite some time. 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi has elected to leave the show at the end of 2017, and as he’s given us one of the greatest performances to ever grace the series, it’s a real bummer, even as it makes the show’s uncertain future more exciting than ever. We also talk a little bit more about Gravity Rush 2, Sean shares some thoughts on Yakuza 0 and Fire Emblem Heroes, and we talk some recent film and gaming news. And for our second topic, we do a mini-retrospective of Nintendo’s Wii U, which ended production worldwide this week, and an even smaller retrospective of the 3DS, which is still going strong, as we prepare to welcome the Nintendo Switch next month.
