154: The Price of Nintendo Switch Online

12/7/2018
More
Nintendo's online service for the Switch was free for longer than they said it would be, but the paywall still took us a bit by surprise. Had Nintendo earned the money? Sean and Vinnk share their experiences so far with the paid version of the Nintendo Switch Online service, tease how to get the channel for Famicom games on US Switches, and somehow let the newest physical version of Night Trap onto our respective Piles of Shame...

151: Shelf Candy

3/30/2018
More
It's not every game, and not every company, but every once in a while a title will come out that is so badly tested, has a day one patch for a game-breaking bug, or isn't even on the disc or cartridge at all, that the box on the shelf is little more than eye candy. Sean and Vinnk discuss the phenomenon of game publishers using their paying customers as beta testers, when having an "incomplete" game is acceptable, and what resale value -- if any -- that these games will have in the long...

3/16/2018

Originally Broadcast 2014/08/15: We recently reached another milestone with episode 150, but it kind of snuck up on us, and we didn't do our usual fan appreciation episode.

When we were kids, someone introduced each of us to the world of video games. Maybe it was a parent, or a friend who had the latest and greatest. Or maybe that love developed in...

150: Happy Nintendo Switch-iversary

3/9/2018
More
It's been a whirlwind year for the Switch as Nintendo struggles to keep up with higher-than-expected demand, and publishers scramble to find titles to release. Meanwhile, indie developers are enjoying the power vacuum left by the AAA players, and really getting a chance to shine on this funny little charcoal gray box. Vinnk and Sean look back at how the Nintendo Switch has changed their gaming habits over the past year, which games and consoles they DIDN'T play because the Switch existed,...

149: A Sense of Adventure

2/23/2018
More
When the adventure game genre died off, fans though we'd never see its like again. In an era where action games dominated and AAA titles push the boundaries of budgets and the senses, who would want a calm, puzzle-solving (but also maddening) ADVENTURE? Lots of people, it turns out. Sean and Vinnk review two wonderful new adventure games: Oxenfree, by Night School Studio, and the new game by classic adventure game guru Ron Gilbert in the Kickstarted form of Thimbleweed Park, by Terrible...

By the end of March 2018, Wii owners will no longer be able to add Wii Points to the Wii Shop. By the end of January 2019, no new purchases, or downloads of existing purchases, will no longer be possible. Everyone's Wii will be no different than a Wii Mini. Vinnk and Sean try to figure out their final Wii purchases, as the very thing we worried about when this podcast first started will finally overtake Nintendo's first online-aware console: the death of gaming services. In Future Retro, we...

Rerun 2014/12/26: Three years, and nothing has changed. Although a first person Die Hard game might be amazing. Merry Christmas, kids.
