NXpress #34: ‘Rocket League’ and ‘Super Empire Strikes Back’ plus the Video Game Awards




Rocket League

It’s another jam-packed show this week! In our Nintendosage segment, we discuss the 2015 Video Game Awards, Minecraft and give you our first impressions of the JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles X developed by Monolith Soft. In our main event we review Rocket League, a physics-based vehicle soccer video game developed and published by Psyonix, that recently won Best Indie Game of the year. Closing off the show, we continue our Star Wars monthly theme and look back at Super Empire Strikes Back released for the Super NES. In between we debate the wether or not critics should rate games with a numbering system and tell you why we think Yacht Club Games is doing a better job than Nintendo in producing amiibo.

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.
