NXpress Nintendo Podcast #8: Nintendo World Championship and No More Heroes



Pac-Man is a cultural icon, a landmark in video game history, a symbol of an entire decade and one of the classics of the medium. The game celebrated its 35th anniversary this past weekend so we decided to take some time and discuss Toru Iwatani’s masterpiece. But first, we look ahead at the 2015 Nintendo World Championships and discuss why we think Nintendo has dropped the ball. In our main event, we look back at No More Heroes, the controversial hit from Grasshopper Studios, starring Travis Touchdown, Death Metal, Dr. Peace, Skelter Helter, Holly Summers and many more.
