Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Nintendo Switch Podcast

There’s a lot of great new games to play on the Switch this month!

It’s another jammed-packed episode of the NXpress Nintendo Switch Podcast! This week, Games Editor Marc Kaliroff joins us to discuss his review of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch and how the port adds a near-perfect refining coat to what was already a masterpiece. In our main event, Indie Games Editor Campbell Gill joins us to discuss the Paper Mario-inspired Bug Fables from developer Moonsprout Games as well as WayForward’s Shantae and the Seven Sirens which could easily rank as one of the finest Metroidvanias on the market. All this and more!

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Revisiting ‘The Wizard’

The Wizard 1989 Movie Review

Although e-sports have long been a part of video game culture since the early ’70s, competitions saw a large surge in popularity in 1989 when Universal Pictures-produced The Wizard, a movie about a trio of kids who make their way to a national Nintendo video game championship for a grand prize of $50,000. The Wizard didn’t go down as a timeless, cinematic classic, but it did develop an understandable cult following as the years went on, and in this segment, we tell you why.

Super Mario 64 Podcast Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and discussed Super Mario 64, arguably one of the greatest video games to date, and one which all games would be judged henceforth. How does it hold up today? Listen in and find out what we think.

Editor’s Note: Sadly, half of this 50-minute review was accidentally deleted. We plan on revisiting Super Mario 64 again in the near future.

Super Mario Galaxy Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and finally got around to discussing the third 3D original platformer in the series after Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The iconic mascot’s long resume features some of the greatest platformers to ever grace any home console and on this episode, we reviewed Super Mario Galaxy, created by Nintendo’s EAD Tokyo studio, whose first project (believe it or not) was DK Jungle Beat, a disappointing flop for Nintendo.
