The Fire Keepers: A Dark Souls Podcast — Ep. 17: Wading Through Discharge

This week on The Fire Keepers, we enter the realm of missed potential and drag-and-drop enemies known as The Demon Ruins. Though Ryan has taken a much needed sabbatical, George Cheese joins the fray to rage with us about this somewhat frustrating and lore-rich area of lava-spewing centipedes, piles of discharge and cameos from many a boss of Dark Souls past. Lost Izalith? More like too many bosses Izalith, amirite?

Before that though we chat a bit about what else we’ve been keeping busy with, including Shadow of the ColossusFallout 4, and the dreaded Nioh.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #175: Ranking Mario, ‘Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3,’ and a Week Without Games

Published

on

We’ve got a packed house for this week’s show, but the more is merrier when discussing Goomba Stomp’s recently published list ranking the Mario series. How does one assess greatness? It ain’t easy, but there are enough strong opinions to go around to dispute some of the results. Rick, Tim, and Patrick are joined by Izsak Barnette and Game Boys co-host Ryan Kapioski to weigh in with our own picks for the best (and worst) Mario games, reignite the debate between Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World, jab at Sunshine a bit, and detail in general the thoughts that go into ranking games like these.

Before that, however, Izsak Barnette tells us about that time he went crazy and didn’t play video games for a week. What was he thinking, and what did he learn? It turns out that there’s a whole other world of things to do. Who knew? And finally, Ryan gives us the rundown on Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, and whether this Switch exclusive has enough combat and fan service to be worth your dollars. It’s another episode full of twists and turns and tangents, so for all this and more, tune in!

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #174: ‘Fire Emblem: Three Houses,’ Hero and The Best Games of the Last 30 Years

Published

on

Nintendo Podcast

After last week’s one-on-one with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the guys go back to a more traditional show this week, as Rick and Patrick are joined by Izsak Barnette to discuss what we’ve been playing, a new Smash Bros. Ultimate character, and Goomba Stomp’s recently published list of the best games from each year in the past three decades, as voted on by our staff. How many Nintendo titles took the top prize? And how many years were they blanked from even getting nominated? The results are pretty interesting, and may lend some insight as to why so many gamers are loyal to Nintendo consoles, even when it means less gaming options.

Before that, however, Izsak tells us about what’s going on with Hero, the latest DLC for Smash. It turns out there may be some weird quirks to his moveset, but is he overpowered? This somehow leads into a conversation about our personal views on esports in general, but bear with us. Lastly, we close with a few more words from Patrick about the excellent Three Houses, including an assurance to Rick that this game doesn’t ever turn into The Bachelor. And be sure to stick around for Rick’s review of The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia, which apparently is better than just another coffee table book. For all this and more, have a listen!

On this episode of Before the Internet, Edgar Chaput and Thomas O’Connor join Ricky D to discuss the Fantasia Film Festival— the largest genre film festival in North America, Fantasia is packed with hundreds of Canadian, North American and worldwide feature-length premieres as well as shorts. Horror, fantasy, Hong Kong action, animation, groundbreaking documentaries, strange science-fiction, Japanese new wave, and martial arts are just among the many genres the Fantasia Film Festival has covered over the past 23 years. With an emphasis on obscure films from around the world, Fantasia’s offerings range from unique and powerful personal visions to international commercial crowd-pleasers rarely seen on the big screen. We go over a brief history of the fest; how it has evolved; our most memorable moments and what we would change. All this and more!
