Game Boys, Ep. 94: Secret of Bananas

We all have secrets we’re not proud of: bad habits, embarrassing pasts, and games we really should’ve played, especially if we’re gonna host a co-op podcast, but never have.

We all have secrets we’re not proud of: bad habits, embarrassing pasts, and games we really should’ve played, especially if we’re gonna host a co-op podcast, but never have.  For the Game Boys that game is Secret of Mana, the SNES co-op, rpg classic that helped shape the genre…that is, until now.  Not that it didn’t shape the genre, but that we hadn’t played it until now.  You got what I meant.  This week’s episode is dedicated to the Squaresoft (who?) classic.  Listen in as the Game Boys discuss the game, how it holds up, whether it was worth the hype, and the game’s longstanding influence.  And don’t forget to share this with a friend like you would a secret!

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!

Published

on

We all have those games that we return to again, and again, and again. If you’ve listened to the Game Boys before, their most frequented titles come as no surprise. But what about when those games are inherently different by the time you return, or you as a gamer are in a much different place? That’s the case for this week’s episode as the Game Boys return to both Destiny 2 and Overwatch to review Destiny’s Solstice of Heroes summer extravaganza and the advent of a 2-2-2 role lock in Overwatch. Are these old favorites any better than they were or some things best left in the past? Find out!
