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, ‘Daemon X Machina’ Review, and ‘Ring Fit Adventure’ Impressions

Published

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!

Nxpress Nintendo Podcast #178: Switch Lite, ‘Astral Chain’ Review, and Standouts From the Latest Direct

Published

on

Nintendo Podcast

There just never seems to be enough time to talk about everything going on in the world of Nintendo these days, so this week we have another jam-packed show. To kick things off, Rick, Tim, and Patrick are joined by Goomba Stomp contributor Renan Fontes to talk about Rick’s time spent testing the Switch Lite. Just what did out editor-in-chief think about Nintendo’s latest dedicated handheld, and what sort of consumer might it appeal to? Will it entice players away from getting a ‘normal’ Switch?

Next up, Patrick and Renan give a full review of the acclaimed Astral Chain (with a little bit of help from Neuron force rookie Tim). After his initial impressions weren’t so hot, has the game’s in-depth combat and detective-based exploration finally won Patrick over? Or has the tense and irritating situation escalated beyond the point of repair? Regardless, Renan explains how Platinum’s latest action opus just might be his game of the year, especially with the all the post-game content keeping him busy. It’s a well-rounded discussion that should provide a good overview from both a casual and expert position.

In the last segment, the guys pick which announcements from the latest Nintendo Direct got them the most excited. XenobladeReturn of the Obra Din, and even Super NES games online each make an appearance. So for all this and more on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, have a listen!
