NXpress Podcast #47: Nintendo Direct & ‘A Link to the Past’

Published

a_link_to_the_past_by_kamixaqui

This week’s episode sees the NXpress crew give their take on some of the bigger announcements and trailers from Nintendo’s latest Direct, ranging from excitement over the new Kirby game and J-pop levels of enthusiasm for the crazy-weird looking Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to cautious optimism for Star Fox Zero, and some outright disappointment for a couple of other games that didn’t fare so well in their respective impressions, Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Paper Mario: Color Splash.

After pondering to the future, for our main segment we take a look back to the past and one of the greatest entries in Nintendo’s seminal Legend of Zelda franchise. A Link to the Past is a masterpiece that set the formula for how Zelda games are thought of to this day, but where does it stand in the series pantheon? We dive deep into one of Link’s greatest adventures and talk about why it still holds up today (even Link’s pink hair). All this and more!

Closing the show is a discussion on the DLC added to Pokemon Sword and Shield, Fire Emblem Three Houses and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Does Byleth deserve to be in Smash?

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #189: Most Anticipated Nintendo Switch Games of 2020

Most Anticipated Nintendo Switch Games of 2020

Happy new year! With a pretty great 12 months for Nintendo behind us, it’s time to take a look at what’s on the horizon for the Switch in 2020. Patrick and Tim hold down the fort this week, and while the upcoming release schedule is still pretty vague at this early stage, they still find more than a few titles to get excited about. From the latest Animal Crossing and ports like Xenoblade Chronicles to some intriguing indies, there’s plenty to cover on the confirmed front. But of course, there always a bit of reckless speculation to have fun with as well! Will 2020 finally be the year we see Bayonetta 3? What other surprises might Nintendo have in store for fans?

Tim and Patrick go through their personal lists, but also take time to give a little love to those other games that Switch owners might be eagerly awaiting. Before all that, however, Patrick also gives his amateur take on Pokemon Sword and Shield. For all this and more, have a listen!

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #188: The Game Awards and the Best Games of 2019

Nintendo Podcast Best Nintendo Games 2019

It’s that time of the year when everyone looks back at all of the great games released over the last 365 days, and the NXpress Podcast is no exception. This week finds Rick, Tim, and Patrick mulling over Goomba Stomp’s list of our Best Games of 2019, debating the merits and placing of some of the choices while generally agreeing that there was a lot to like for Switch owners this year. Along the way we suggest a few substitutions, reflect on the greatness of the Switch games that cracked the list (especially that #1), and look forward to what 2020 might bring.

Of course, before all the positivity and praise, we have a few things to say about the latest iteration of the Game Awards. While Rick enjoyed the brisk pacing, there’s a feeling that the actual awards in this ‘awards show’ might be getting a wee bit short-shrifted. Perhaps a celebration about the past year shouldn’t focus so much on teasers for the coming year? Feel free to give us your opinion on whether The Game Awards succeeds as a tribute to the industry, or seems to be tending toward being just another promotional event. For all this and more, have a listen!
