After last week’s one-on-one with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the guys go back to a more traditional show this week, as Rick and Patrick are joined by Izsak Barnette to discuss what we’ve been playing, a new Smash Bros. Ultimate character, and Goomba Stomp’s recently published list of the best games from each year in the past three decades, as voted on by our staff. How many Nintendo titles took the top prize? And how many years were they blanked from even getting nominated? The results are pretty interesting, and may lend some insight as to why so many gamers are loyal to Nintendo consoles, even when it means less gaming options.
Before that, however, Izsak tells us about what’s going on with Hero, the latest DLC for Smash. It turns out there may be some weird quirks to his moveset, but is he overpowered? This somehow leads into a conversation about our personal views on esports in general, but bear with us. Lastly, we close with a few more words from Patrick about the excellent Three Houses, including an assurance to Rick that this game doesn’t ever turn into The Bachelor. And be sure to stick around for Rick’s review of The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia, which apparently is better than just another coffee table book. For all this and more, have a listen!
