NXpress #17: ‘The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth’ and ‘Never Alone’

Published

on

binding-isaac-rebirth

This week we take a break from discussing Nintendo’s first party games and focus on some indie gems instead. Up first is our discussion of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, a twisted, rogue-like, twin-stick shooter/dungeon crawler developed by Edmund McMillen. Ending the show is our review of Never Alone, an atmospheric puzzle platformer that explores the harsh and dynamic world of Alaska Native stories. Using gaming as a medium to tell a beautiful, classic story, Never Alone was developed by Upper One Games (the first indigenous-owned video game developer and publisher) in partnership with the Alaska Native community, and is faithfully based on the folklore of the Iñupiat people. Joining us this week is special guest Mariko McDonald from GamerWife.com.

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.
