NXpress Nintendo Podcast #197: ‘Animal Crossing’ Wrapup, ‘Super Mega Baseball 3’ Review



Technical glitches can’t hold us down forever, as this week the NXpress crew is back with their second attempt at wrapping up coverage of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. After putting in an incredible 300+ hours, Ricky D joins Tim and Patrick to talk about what decorative and engineering feats he has accomplished, and where there is left to go for his 5-star island village. Along the way he shares some stories, and passes along a few tips to those looking to maximize their crafting time.

Before that, Patrick gives a brief rundown of Super Mega Baseball 3, which despite its cartoony look and ridiculous title, turns out to be a pretty fun baseball sim that captures a good portion of what makes the sport of baseball so magical. From the strategy of the pitcher-batter duel to a fairly in-depth franchise mode, there’s a lot to love here for fans.

Lastly, the guys react to the surprise announcement of Paper Mario: The Origami King. Does this latest sequel look like it will be a return to the traditional RPG that so many have been craving for the series, or will it further divide gamers by embracing the more gimmicky route of the last couple of entries? Either way, there are at least some of us who don’t mind either way. For all this and more, have a listen!
