Game Boys, Ep. 13: Could Be Comeback Kids

Published

on

We all have our favorite standalone games, or have loved games that never got the sequel they deserved.  In this very special episode of Game Boys, Tim and Ryan provide a list of countless co-op games that have earned a comeback. The list includes more recent titles like Portal 2 and some very dated titles, such as Rogue Squadron.  But what all the titles have in common is that these franchise should be far from done.  Your friendly neighborhood Game Boys generate a web of great titles and obscure tangents that you won’t want to miss.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #180: ‘Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ and Keeping Up With So Many Games

Published

on

Fire Emblem Three Houses Podcast

Intelligent Systems’ excellent Fire Emblem: Three Houses has inevitably converted another NXpress host, and this week Rick tells fellow enthusiast Patrick and guy-missing-out Tim why he thinks this strategy RPG has a good shot at taking the top spot on his list of the year’s best games. Sure, we’ve already talked extensively about this latest entry in the series, but there’s always more to say. From Rick’s early adventures in Maddening mode to Patrick’s comparisons of his time spent with each house’s campaign, this opening segment provides a nice bow on our coverage of one of Nintendo’s best offerings of 2019.

After that, the guys get into a lengthy discussion of how each of them handle stretches like the Nintendo has lined up for the second half of the year, where it seems like one must-play game is released after another. When you can’t play everything, what do you play, and why? From low budgets to lack of time, there are plenty of reasons it’s tough to get to every major title that hits the shelves and eShop. Turns out that the guys each have a different approach, whether it’s sticking to tried-and-true franchises, specific genres, or trying as much as possible until something sticks. How about you?

Finally, Rick wraps things up with some brief second impressions of The Sinking City. For all this and more, have a listen!

Stadia Wave Podcast #2- Don’t Call Stadia Netflix for Games

Published

on

Stadia Podcast

This week, the Stadia Wave Podcast boys are back to challenge the long running myth that Google Stadia is “Netflix for games.” The conversation veers from Vudu to Hulu and all the way to Gamefly, but somewhere along the line a better analogy is created. Regardless, everyone is still left relatively in the dark about what is really happening and what the platform means for the future.

Better yet, the gang discusses their dream subscription service for the Stadia and end up with some interesting and surprising answers. Raheel somehow finds a way to bash Pokemon in the process and a Google first party game service is naturally thrown into the mix. Could Bethesda bring Doom and the Elder Scrolls franchises to a TV near you? Could Steam games find their way to the platform (God, help our wallets).

At long last, the guys wind down by pondering a way to solve the marketing void left by Google’s corporate communication plan. Gone are the days of print adds and TV commercials, marketing now lives in the age of the influencer. Is there a better way to launch the platform? Who is the target audience? What’s the best way to reach them?

Tune in on the second and last Friday of every month to catch the boys as they offer their thoughts and hot takes on the upcoming Google Stadia platform. Although news has been slow, there is always something to discuss on Stadia Wave. Find the podcast on Podbean or, as always, keep that dial tuned to Goomba Stomp.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #179: ‘Creature in the Well’ Developer Interview and ‘Daemon X Machina’ Review

Published

on

Creature in the Well Podcast Review

We love doing developer interviews, and this week is a good one: Adam Volker of Flight School Studio joins us to talk about their recent release, Creature in the Well. Having served as creative director on the project, Adam gives Rick, Patrick, and newcomer Campbell Gill insight into the project’s creation, construction, and even a little bit of what the developers have learned since the release. Important questions are answered, such as: is this really a ‘pinball’ game? What part of the game was inspired by Sesame Street? And a solution is given to perhaps the most difficult puzzle of all: how in the sandy world do you heal your wounded BOT-C? Fans of this recently released action-puzzle game — as well as anyone interested in game design — won’t want to miss it!

Later, Campbell gives Rick and Patrick the rundown on Daemon X Machina, a new Switch game where apparently flying around as a giant robot while blowing stuff up is actually pretty fun! It turns out that a lot has been improved from the early (and shaky) demo, but how does someone screw up a story that involves the moon exploding? You’ll have to tune in to find out.

Finally, the guys offer their impression of Nintendo’s latest bit of wackiness, Ring Fit Adventure, an exercise-based game that will supposedly give players abs of steel while they explore a fantasy land and out-workout a slew of monsters along the way. Frankly, however, we spend more time discussing the video’s actors. For all this and more, have a listen!

Game Boys, Ep. 160: It’s Kirbo Time!

Published

on

Nintendo Switch Online brings with it a handful of treasures, from beloved NES titles to freshly re-released SNES classics. But what happens when Nintendo takes its roundest mascot and makes a cooperative, Free-to-Play, online boss brawler? This week the Game Boys aim to answer just that as they review Super Kirby Clash and all of the co-op titles from the most recent Nintendo Direct. Can Kirby float to the heights of games like Dauntless, or does the pink puff plummet? Find out!
