NXpress Nintendo Podcast 68: Movies vs. Video Games plus 30 Years of ‘Castlevania’



This week, it’s a full house. Patrick Murphy returns to the podcast after a long hiatus and also joining us is Goomba Stomp contributors, Zack Rezak and Ade Adeoye. We start by sharing our final predictions of what the NX is, and what Nintendo might possibly name the console. In our main event, we discuss the difference between storytelling in video games and movies, and ending the episode is a look back at the original Castlevania for the Nintendo Entertainment System. All this and more.

video games vs. movies

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.
