NXpress Nintendo Podcast #37: Best Games of 2015 Part Two + ‘Axiom Verge’





It’s impossible to play Axiom Verge without thinking of Metroid. Axiom Verge is a game that wears its affection for Nintendo’s beloved 8-bit original as well as the 16-bit follow-up, Super Metroid — on its sleeve. This week on our main event we take some time to review the 2D side-scroller from creator Tom Happ. Before that we take a bit of time to look back at Nintendo’s biggest hits and misses of 2015. And finally, we close off the show with the second half of our countdown of the best video games of 2015. All this and more.

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.
