NXpress Nintendo Podcast 87: Drugs, Dreams, Nightmares, Virtual Reality, Black Mirror, Diddy Kong and the Nintendo Switch



This week, we continue our Donkey Kong retrospective with the sequel to Rare’s spectacular hit Donkey Kong Country and let you know if we think Diddy’s Kong Quest exceeds the standard set by its predecessor. Later in the episode, we set aside some time to discuss Charlie Brooker’s Twilight Zone-esque third season of Black Mirror, specifically the videogame-themed episode, “Playtest”. Also on the agenda is dreams, nightmares, drugs, indie games, spirituality, The Matrix, monkeys, the dangers of virtual reality and so much more. Joining us is Goomba Stomp’s managing editor, Mike Worby. This is not to be missed.

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.
