    NEP 037: Switch Lite: Pros and Joy-Cons, LGBTQ Representation

    Nintendo Everything Podcast starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Hello my beautiful Popos and Nanas! Oni and Galen have a great discussion overall, in our most intimate episode of NEP yet. We talk localization and well-written characters in fiction, the pros and cons of the Switch Lite (and what this could mean for a future “Pro” variant), Dr. Mario and how different in design it is, and we tie things up with a discussion of Fire Emblem and LGBTQ+ representation in media and video games. We hope you enjoy.

    The best way to support our show is to give us a review on iTunes, so we would appreciate if you could take the time to do so. We really appreciate all your support and thank you so much for listening!

And a chat about the merit of replaying games and empathizing with well-written characters in fiction. 28:36 – Nintendo Switch Lite and public reaction. Galen thinks this should’ve been announced at E3 and Oni explains why he thinks it was a smart move not to announce at E3. How is the marketing for Switch going to proceed now that we have a dedicated handheld? Will the eventual “Pro” be a dedicated household console?

Galen explains. 56:50 – Fire Emblem: Three Houses. New details on giant beasts, online features, same-sex relationships, and more.

    Hello my beautiful Mario and Luigi makers! Super Mario Maker 2 is out this week so let’s chat! Takashi Tezuka has given us some pearls of info to muse on. Galen and Oni have a running argument on autorunner levels. The gang also discusses what Nintendo does with the future of Mario 2D side-scroller platformers as stand alone titles. Oni thinks they need to go a totally new direction, and he has THE BEST ideas. Nintendo, please check these out. They’re free. Oni and Galen have basically acted as creative producer on this and workshopped ‘em.

    Oni and Galen then blab on about some new info on an upgraded Switch model, and consider things not only from a consumer standpoint, but from a developer’s burden point of view, as well. We muse on the big questions like, “Is the inevitable Switch model going to be a small bump or a huge leap so it can at least hold its own against the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett?” Galen brings up marketing and aiming at different markets, while Oni fights back with discussions of the slippery slope effect that the Switch could lose 3rd party support.

    Hello my beautiful Banjos and Kazooies! This week is post E3, and we have so much to talk about, it’s not even fair to our monthly data cap! Oni talks first-hand experiences on the Show Floor and discusses the entirety of the Nintendo E3 Direct and then some with Galen!

    Part way through the episode, Galen suddenly had a swig of idiot juice and started being wrong about everything, but Oni keeps him on track as he recalls Eiji Aonuma’s old plans for new gameplay in Breath of the Wild. The gang may have figured out how the sequel is gonna go! Or at least they’d like to think they have...

    To celebrate E3, we’re doing double content all month long! Mostly. We hope you’re enjoying! The best way to support our show is to recommend the podcast to others, and rate us 5 stars on iTunes! We really appreciate all the support you’ve given us throughout the show.

    Thank you so much for listening!

The rumors were true! Fire Emblem and the melodramatic waifu-husbando kerfuffle. 1:03:12 – Old Resident Evil games, and a little Parasite Eve chat, too. 1:07:39 – Henshin-a-go-go, baby! Travis Strikes Again with an announcement for No More Heroes III! Galen’s never heard of the series so Oni explains it to him. Then they analyze the trailer together. And then! Galen confuses NMH with Tank Girl with Daemon X Machina. What is wrong with him? 1:13:10 – Contra one-two punch! Contra Collection and Contra Rogue Corps. And Daemon X Machina looking so fresh!! This brings Oni to peak excitement during the direct. And a little Pokemon Sword and Shield teaser/reminder for good measure. Then, Astral Chain and Empire of Sin! More anime cringe but not enough boy shorts. 1:25:00 – Galen gets more stuff wrong with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3! Oni can’t stand it. New characters and enemies, tho! Also… Cadence of Hyrule!

Oni and Galen break down the animation and the character interactions and discuss good design and bad design. Oni and Galen then discuss the Microsoft x Nintendo partnership, healthy ways to consume media, “reaction” videos and annoying thumbnails. We talk all the things on this podcast. Speaking of, Oni does more gymnastics on forgetting the most critical word for this format. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING AND HE FORGOT IT. 1:49:29 – THE SEQUEL TO LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD. Outta freakin’ nowhere! Oni recalls something Aonuma said years ago before BotW, and wonders if it’s going to play into the story and gameplay for this upcoming game. Oni and Galen also talk about what they want to see from this new entry: open world? Traditional dungeons? Linear progression? Let’s discuss, throw out theories, analyze and more. 2:05:05 – Additional DLC 2:12:10 – Listener Mail: Forcing yourself to play games, and how we choose the music we do.

    Hello my HMs & TMs! It’s bonus time on NEP- you get a double length episode! Oni and Galen kick things off by discussing Nights of Azure 2 on Switch, Smash Ultimate’s Labo VR update and the weird amiibo implementation along with it.

    09:48 – Adventure Log: Dragon’s Dogma end game, Nights of Azure 2: Boobies of the New Moon and Smash Ultimate’s VR update and horrible amiibo fights where your amibo are your children. Nintendo won’t fool us into buying amiibo! 33:13 – Super Mario Maker 2 won’t let you play with friends online- only random players. Galen and Oni offer solutions to Nintendo’s problem, and suggestions for fans to take action! Also accidental discussion of omega labyrinth life and social issues in Japanese culture and real life. Also general discussion of more fleshed out features we learned recently, such as no amiibo support. Nintendo Online Voucher discussion, too. Backwards way of doing things? Y/N? Oni and Galen are also curious if this kind of deal is worth it in your country with the way sales and pricing work. Write in to our email below and let us know. General discussion of how Nintendo games hold their value and don’t go on sale often. 1:02:12 – Cadence of Hyrule releasing in June. E3 shadowdrop? Also, Harvest Moon Mad Dash announced for Switch. Oni going hands-on at E3. 1:04:37 – Pokemon Press Conference! It was actually really exciting. Let’s talk the potential of what they announced: Pokemon full force into China, full force into films, Pokemon Center Tokyo in Shibuya. Galen and Oni reveal they’re going to Tokyo later this fall. Stay tuned for antics. Pokemon Home has us very excited for different reasons, and Pokemon Sleep is smart marketing. And Pokemon Shirts, for the working pikachus. 1:42:50 – Additional DLC and movie talk. Cinema-going experience is awful. 1:49:54 – Listener Mail: phrases we live by.

    Hello, my angry suns! In this episode of NEP, we’ve got two special guests joining Oni and Galen: Tim and Tyler from Something Classic Games with the occasional woof from Tyler’s dog, Jackson. Something Classic recently debuted their stylish, modern take on SNES-era JRPGs, “Shadows of Adam”, on Nintendo Switch!

    Join the four of us as we talk all about our reactions to the Super Mario Maker 2 direct and what we think of the unannounced new game style(s), too! We start things off with a casual interview of sorts where Tim and Tyler fill us in on their history in the games and music industries, tales of development, inspiring stories, RPG Maker back in the day, the roots of Shadows of Adam, and what transformations took place over the years. We also end up just chatting about general gaming habits, Pokemon GO, houses full of musicians, cats and dogs, memes...

    If you’re a fan of classic SNES JRPGs, you don’t want to miss out on this episode and you definitely don’t want to miss out on Shadows of Adam. So, come have a chill time with us and get to know two of the devs from Something Classic Games.

    What’s up, hedgehogs and werehogs! That’s right, it’s time to talk about Sonic... but first we kick things off with info on our giveaway for Hob: The Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch!

    In this episode of NEP, we dish out our opinions on the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, and the director’s response that it’s going to be fixed in such a short amount of time. This leads us to talk about industry crunch, along with CG artists’ and 3D animators’ responses to this situation. We then talk all the weekly news, including Forza Street, Bloodstained and more. We finish things off with talking about Epic Games purchasing Psyonix, creators of Rocket League, and general discussions of the Epic Store and what the controversy is there. Oni learned something, so we hope you do, too! Galen then has an existential crisis for good measure as we go over our listener mail!

    Hello, my Chocobos and Moogles! Welcome to a special episode: the Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! Spoilercast.

    Oni recounts his experiences with the characters and story of Chocobo’s Dungeon, and he can’t handle the tonal dissonance between doom and adorable that this game has in spades. Oni and Galen discuss the game, the series as a whole, JRPGs in general, and other games that weave cute and gloom together.

    We hope you enjoy this special episode! As ever, we would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend.

    Nintendo Everything Podcast starstarstarstarstar
    add

    What’s good, spider balls and morph balls! It’s bonus time! We had so much to talk about in NEP 026 that we made it double the length! We’ll also be doing an EXTRA episode during the week: a spoilercast for Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy!

    In this episode of NEP, we discuss the controversy of Persona 5 not being announced for Switch and the Nintendo community’s negative reaction. This leads us to talk about reality vs expectation, vocal gaming culture and how some gamers handle disappointment. We then lighten things up by talking about Super Mario Maker 2’s upcoming release, Nintendo’s financial briefing, and some more information about Nintendo and Tencent Holdings partnership to break into the Chinese market with the release of Nintendo Switch.

    We hope you enjoy the extra effort this week! As ever, we would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend!
    Thanks for listening!

    NEP 025: Switch Mini, Unsavory Smash Stages & China

    Nintendo Everything Podcast starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Hello, Team Hare and Team Tortoise! This week on NEP, Galen kicks the show off with his EXCELLENT Banjo Kazooie impression. That sets the mood for the laughing/crying fit we have right after as we joke about how depressing Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon gets in the late game, including some high-level Final Fantasy lore jokes. We then take a deep dive into Smash 3.0 where Galen gives some thorough impressions and we discuss all of the custom stages Nintendo’s cracking down on; Galen tells his horror story. Afterward, we have some chill Marvel talk because we just got a street date for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3! Then we get serious as we talk rumors from Nikkei about a Switch Mini releasing this autumn, and Oni talks the importance of accurate translations so as not to spread misinformation. And we tidy things up by discussing the growing likelihood of Switch releasing in mainland China, who Tencent is, and international business culture.

    We hope you enjoy this episode, because we had a ton of fun recording it! We would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend!
