NXpress #31: Video Game Memories and the latest Nintendo Direct



This week, Patrick, Rick, Aaron and Tim sit back and reminisce on some of their fondest memories playing video games as kids. Among the many topics discussed is the Panasonic 3DO, a home video game console platform developed by The 3DO Company — the Magnavox Odyssey is the first commercial home video game console — Legendary Wings, a long-lost NES title — and Pokemon Red & Blue. In our main event, we sit down and discuss the latest Nintendo Direct and the Final Fantasy/Super Smash Bros. news that shocked everyone. We take some time to also discuss The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and the introduction to Linkelle. In our last segment, we invite PopOptiq’s Games Editor Mike Worby to announce the Super Mario Maker Challenge winners. All this and more!

The NXpress is a weekly podcast hosted at in which we discuss all things Nintendo. We stay clear from in-depth game strategies and keep things light. There’s plenty of nostalgia and feedback that will resonate with vintage game collectors; meanwhile modern games are sprinkled in and each week our show revolves around a central theme.
