NXpress Nintendo Podcast #39: ‘Perfect Dark’ and our 16 Predictions

Published

on

Perfect Dark Rare Podcast

Few games were more eagerly anticipated than Rare’s unofficial sequel to GoldenEye 007 back in the year 2000. This week we continue our month-long spotlight on Rare by discussing what makes Perfect Dark one of the best games released on the Nintendo 64. Perfect Dark isn’t groundbreaking like its predecessor – but it takes everything that makes GoldenEye 007 so good and makes it even better. Perfect Dark has a compelling story (partly based on Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell); a killer soundtrack; brooding atmosphere, a great protagonist; and, an immensely enjoyable multiplayer mode. But before we get to Joanna Dark, we address the 20-year anniversary plans for Pokémon and reveal our 2016 Nintendo predictions. All this and a David Bowie tribute!

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Revisiting ‘The Wizard’

The Wizard 1989 Movie Review

Although e-sports have long been a part of video game culture since the early ’70s, competitions saw a large surge in popularity in 1989 when Universal Pictures-produced The Wizard, a movie about a trio of kids who make their way to a national Nintendo video game championship for a grand prize of $50,000. The Wizard didn’t go down as a timeless, cinematic classic, but it did develop an understandable cult following as the years went on, and in this segment, we tell you why.

Super Mario 64 Podcast Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and discussed Super Mario 64, arguably one of the greatest video games to date, and one which all games would be judged henceforth. How does it hold up today? Listen in and find out what we think.

Editor’s Note: Sadly, half of this 50-minute review was accidentally deleted. We plan on revisiting Super Mario 64 again in the near future.

Super Mario Galaxy Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and finally got around to discussing the third 3D original platformer in the series after Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The iconic mascot’s long resume features some of the greatest platformers to ever grace any home console and on this episode, we reviewed Super Mario Galaxy, created by Nintendo’s EAD Tokyo studio, whose first project (believe it or not) was DK Jungle Beat, a disappointing flop for Nintendo.
