Tim and Rick are back after taking some time off and joining them to talk about all things Nintendo is Goomba Stomp editor, Campbell Gill.

In this episode, the boys discuss the future of Nintendo and how the current COVID-19 pandemic might be changing Nintendo’s release schedule and the company’s marketing.

Also, on tap is a review of Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time, which adapts Genndy Tartakovsky’s masterful TV series in a new, three-dimensional light. According to Campbell, Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is a welcome opportunity to revisit fan-favorite scenes in a fun, if unremarkable, action-packed romp.

In addition, the gang talks about the recent Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary news as well as the announcement of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.

All this and more.

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Zack Rezack is back to help us discuss the massive leak of internal Nintendo information which unveiled lots of never-before-seen material for games like Super Mario 64, Pokémon, and Star Fox. We also set aside some time to discuss how Nintendo can improve their online subscription service and review Carrion, the indie horror game that allows players to control a tentacled monster whose objective is to make its way through a facility, stalking and killing humans in its path. All this and more!

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Marc Kaliroff joins the gang to review Bloodstained: Curse of The Moon 2 which will leave fans of Bloodstained or the original Castlevania games wanting more— and CrossCode, a remarkable RPG that reaps the rewards of originality most when it comes to worldbuilding, storytelling, and character development.

In the main event, the gang discusses the latest Nintendo Direct Mini; what they think makes a great Nintendo presentation and what they feel doesn’t work for the Big N. And somewhere in the mix, the boys let you know whether or not Pokémon Café Mix worth your time? All this and more!

The NXpress Nintendo Podcast reaches another milestone this week but rather than plan some big celebration, the gang decided to instead simply sit back and discuss five years of podcasting and recording 200 episodes of the show. In our main event, Patrick gives us a full 30-minute breakdown of Paper Mario: The Origami King, a game he claims will disappoint fans looking for a more traditional Paper Mario adventure.

All this and more!

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Switch podcast, Marty Allen joins Tim and Rick to discuss Journey to the Savage Planet , a first-person action platformer, a Metroidvania-style exploration game, and a very funny satire, all in one colorful, pulsating package. In addition, Marty gives a breakdown of Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, an eclectic collection of games to play and discover on your Nintendo Switch system.

In the main event, the boys discuss forgotten games made by Nintendo which have never once been ported. These include rare and hard to find gems; games that will likely never be reborn due to licensing issues, and of course, games that rely on a certain accessory that is no longer made.

All this and more!

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!

Technical glitches can’t hold us down forever, as this week the NXpress crew is back with their second attempt at wrapping up coverage of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. After putting in an incredible 300+ hours, Ricky D joins Tim and Patrick to talk about what decorative and engineering feats he has accomplished, and where there is left to go for his 5-star island village. Along the way he shares some stories, and passes along a few tips to those looking to maximize their crafting time.

Before that, Patrick gives a brief rundown of Super Mega Baseball 3, which despite its cartoony look and ridiculous title, turns out to be a pretty fun baseball sim that captures a good portion of what makes the sport of baseball so magical. From the strategy of the pitcher-batter duel to a fairly in-depth franchise mode, there’s a lot to love here for fans.

Lastly, the guys react the surprise announcement of Paper Mario: The Origami King. Does this latest sequel look like it will be a return to the traditional RPG that so many have been craving for the series, or will it further divide gamers by embracing the more gimmicky route of the last couple of entries? Either way, there are at least some of us who don’t mind either way. For all this and more, have a listen!

Though Nintendo hasn’t oiled its mitt and strapped on some cleats since 2013’s Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, the company is no stranger to America’s pastime and has a wealth of prospects in its franchise farm system. As such, its only natural that the NXpress would eventually do a baseball draft of Nintendo characters, and that time is now. This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Tim and Patrick fill their rosters from the deep stable of Nintendo games, stacking their lineups with speed and power, while trying not to sacrifice fundamental defense. Will they be drawn to traditional ‘eye-test’ scouting, or will sabermetrics lead to that championship team? You’ll have to tune in to find out who made which surprising picks!

Before that, the two catch up on what they’ve been playing recently. Having finally played through all that Fire Emblem: Three Houses has to offer (and taking over 250 hours to do so), Patrick sends the game off on one last spate of praise. Meanwhile, Tim fills him in on what’s been going on in Animal Crossing New Horizons, including describing his island’s spooky setup, as well as the new additions coming via DLC.

For all this and more, have a listen!

Another Animal Crossing Podcast Special

We just can’t get enough of Animal Crossing: New Horizons so we’ve decided to dedicate another episode of the podcast to discuss the game.

This week, we share our experience visiting each other islands as well as what we’d like Nintendo add to the game in the near future.

Closing the show is a quick conversation about the Super Mario LEGO set. That right, the LEGO company and Nintendo have partnered, and their collaboration has led to a reimagination of the LEGO building experience, enabling an entirely new way to play inspired by the beloved video game icon.

 

Neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick-based set, LEGO Super Mario is a new product line that features an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects coins in real-life game levels created with LEGO bricks. The new line promises to take legendary brick-building to a new level, and we have some opinions about it. All this and more!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Podcast Review

We can’t just get enough of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and so we’ve decided to dedicate another episode of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast to the latest entry in Nintendo’s pleasant little life simulator series.

After one week of playing the game religiously, we have plenty to talk about. We’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far and we’ve had a grand time decorating our new homes while making friends with new arrivals. We’ve also been working around the clock to get a three-star rating for our islands and after 60 plus hours spent on our deserted island getaway, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is everything we hoped it would be and more.

Join us in this episode as we take a break from our new virtual lives and share stories; trade tips and answer your questions. All this and more.
