Greatest Nintendo Bosses

Nintendo which celebrated its 125th Anniversary last year has had an extraordinary history, originally producing handmade playing cards and several small niche businesses. But ever since 1977, Nintendo has grown into one of the world’s most prolific and beloved video game makers. Nintendo became a household name outside of Japan in 1985 with the release of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The best-selling gaming console of its time, the NES saved the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983. Nintendo has since been the most enduring and influential company in the medium and its consoles, branding and innovative game achievements have given the company a momentous status in popular culture. And so 30 years after the NES hit North American shores, we’ve decided to start our very own Nintendo podcast. Welcome to episode 1 – What’s NX? On topic is the recent Nintendo Direct, the NX, Nintendo’s mobile plans and classic boss battles.

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.

Super Mario Sunshine Podcast Review

It was a brave move on the part of Nintendo to launch the GameCube without a Mario game. Instead, Mario’s younger sibling took the spotlight in a new series Luigi’s Mansion. It was six years after Super Mario 64 was released that Nintendo gave us Super Mario Sunshine. In this segment— taken from episode 21 of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast— we take a look back on Mario’s summer getaway and everything that made the beautiful tropical island of Delfino so frustrating and fun.
