This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, things start off with a bang, as Rick, Tim, and Patrick begin what seems like an innocent discussion of the now-delayed Switch release of Decay of Logos, but quickly turn it into a lively debate about the responsibilities of reviewers who have received codes for broken games. Those interested in getting a peek behind the scenes of a website like Goomba Stomp will get a good dose of multiple philosophies on how to handle publishers and what is owed to the readers. It’s a lengthy back-and-forth, but we think it’s worth a listen!
After all the arguing, things settle down with some previews from PAX West, as Tim relates some of the indies he got a chance to try out in person, and Rick delivers a review of FAR: Lone Sails for the Switch. This indie revolving around a child operating a steampunk-ish transport across post-apocalyptic landscapes is reminiscent of Inside, but finds its own way to be one of the most relaxing, enjoyable games of the year so far.
This week’s episode ends with Patrick’s first impressions of Astral Chain. Does he agree with Brent’s enthusiastic review, or has this sci-fi action game not managed to arrest him quite yet? For all this and more, have a listen!
