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

by NXpress Podcast
Published: Last Updated on

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.

Calling out Konami was the best part of the show! Geoff Keighley keeps shit real.

I think it was just awkward because you can tell he was emotionally torn apart about it. Like it was sitting in on a couple fighting. I still think that from a professional standpoint, he could have approached it in a better way. Oh well.
