Michael kicks things off with a behind-the-scenes look at Indieland 2021, a charity live stream starring the Completionist and a host of indie developers around the globe raising money to support dementia research and treatment.

Michael gives the hosts a deep dive behind the scenes, providing a thorough look at what it takes to put a program together.

Indies take a backseat in the next segment, as Marc takes center stage to celebrate the incredible Epilogue GB Operator, a groundbreaking device that lets you play Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games in full 4k on the device and control setup of your choice.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast 249: Celebrating 20 years GameCube + WarioWare: Get It Together! And SkateBIRD Reviews

This week on NXpress, we celebrate 20 years of the Nintendo GameCube and review the insanity of WarioWare: Get It Together!

Two whole decades of the cube! This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill celebrate the 20th birthday of the Nintendo GameCube before reviewing the newly-released WarioWare: Get It Together! The Big N’s sixth-gen effort may not have lit up the sales chart like its predecessors, but what it lacked in commercial success it made up for in critical darlings, boasting an exceptional library of some of the most groundbreaking and innovative games of its era. The gang walks through only a small smattering of the landmark experiences that the purple cube has to offer, from the graphical showcase of Luigi’s Mansion to the hassle of connecting your GBA to your GameCube to the splendors of sailing on the Great Sea in The Wind Waker. That’s not to mention that its lightweight design and built-in handle technically made it a hybrid console decades before the Switch…

After a quick breaking news segment to discuss the out-of-nowhere reveal that the latest Switch system update would support Bluetooth audio, Cameron dives into the microgame madness of WarioWare: Get It Together! with an in-depth review. The craziness may get out of hand sometimes, but with a friend along for the ride, there’s still plenty of wacky fun to be had with Wario’s debut outing on Switch. Closing things out with a much-needed dose of feathery cuteness is an indie spotlight on SkateBIRD, an adorable take on Tony Hawk that might just be one of the year’s most charming indies.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast 248: What Is a Metroidvania, Anyway?

Metroidvania

This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill tackle one of life’s biggest questions – just what is a metroidvania, really? Before getting to that, though, the gang takes a moment to appreciate the recently-announced Lego Mario 64 set, an incredible tribute to one of the greatest games of all time that presents enticing possibilities as to what the future could hold for collaborations between the Big N and Lego.

In the Main Event, the hosts celebrate the impending release of Metroid Dread with a wide-ranging discussion about all things metroidvania, sharing their experiences with the genre, their hopes for its future, and their opinions about what makes a game a metroidvania. From the beginnings of the genre with Super Metroid and Symphony of the Night all the way to modern classics like Hollow Knight, the metroidvania genre has played host to some of the very best games of the past few decades, and for all the hosts’ hopes, questions, and issues, there’s no telling where it might go next–until we get our hands on Metroid Dread, at least.
