With the Super Nintendo mini coming out, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane. So, Anthony and I are going through some of our favorite Super Nintendo games that we played while growing up.
It’s just me on this week’s episode, so I am giving some thoughts I have regarding the Nintendo Switch, now that I’ve had a few months with it. Games discussed include Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (no spoilers), Puyo Puyo Tetris, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Snipperclips.
In this episode, we have a follow-up to how terrible Anthony and J.R.’s brackets have turned out, we discuss writers being duly credited for the stories they write (2:09), this week’s “Better Know an X-Man” features Husk (7:32), Jacob gives us a lesson on the convoluted history of Xorn (12:47), and we wrap out by talking about some video games we have been playing (43:28).
In this episode, we briefly discuss our first impressions on the Nintendo Switch, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Logan. Our very first “Better Know an X-Men” segment features Marrow. We then go in depth with our review of Doctor Strange.
With the launch of the Nintendo Switch just a couple hours away here in the U.S., I thought I’d share something that has been on my mind today. While taking a walk at work, I started thinking why exactly I jump on Nintendo consoles at launch, but not others. For the record, I have bought the Wii, Wii U, and now Switch all within the launch window. While I do own Playstations 2-4, I didn’t but any of them at launch, and don’t foresee buying whatever comes next from Sony at launch, either. But why is that?
I like the Playstation. There have been many games that I’ve enjoyed released for the Sony systems. Many games I’m looking forward to. But with each release, I never find myself in a hurry to buy the most recent one. I usually wait until there are several games released that I am interested in. Why the double standard? With the Wii and Wii U, there was nothing particularly big coming out at launch that I wanted to play. Sure, the Wii had Twilight Princes, but I could have played that on the Gamecube. Likewise, now with the Switch, I’m only for certain getting Breath of the Wild, which I could also play on Wii U. Yet, I find myself really looking forward to getting the Switch on my lunch break tomorrow. (more…)
In this week’s episode, we’re finally talking about the Nintendo Switch. We give our thoughts on what we saw in Nintendo’s Presentation.
In this episode, Anthony and I relive some of our history with Nintendo’s home consoles, taking a nostalgic look at the past.
