We got a jam packed episode this week. We go over what we know about Nintendo’s online service and speculate on the unknown, Metal Gear Survive gets egregious with We kickoff our show with Dan’s issues with eBay sellers, Nintendo drops a Japan exclusive Breath of the Wild soundtrack, and Chrono Trigger’s bad PC port. In the news, the ESRB unveils it’s proposal to add warnings to games that have in-game purchases, Sega paid a visit to Microsoft and everyone is speculating on what it means, PlayStation Plus to get rid of free PS3 and Vita games and a long lost Donkey Kong port resurfaces. In our convo of the week, the Switch turns one year old, we discuss all the wins and losses. All that and more on episode 108 of Rated G for Gamers.
It’s the end of the year and you know what that means, Game of the Year time! We nominate 5 a piece and we’ll announce our winner and a new edition to our segment, 2nd and 3rd place. At the top of the show, we run down our pickups over the holiday break, what we’ve been playing lately, and why in the hell Danny picked up the SNES 3DS. In the news, journalists had to sign NDAs for the recent Bandai/Namco event, the Switch tops 10 million in sales, Nintendo loses Goldeneye trademark and Psychonauts 2 is delayed to 2019. All that and more on episode 99 of Rated G for Gamers.
If you didn’t know, a little known company called Nintendo just dropped a new video game console/handheld hybrid called the Switch on Friday (March 3rd) and of course we both got one! We discuss the system, the good and the bad, Breath of the Wild and our top 5 Zelda games of all time. Also in the news, Microsoft announces game pass service, No Man’s Sky wins at DICE and no one attended to receive the award, a dedicated NES streamer beat all 714 officially licensed games, and in an interesting bit of trivia, find out which video game movie Danny Glover almost got hired for. All on episode 66 or Rated G.
It’s almost here! The Switch touches down in less than a week and we can’t wait. The games journalists weigh in on the system and the games and we break it all down. Battery life, portability, UI, and more. No conversation of the week, just glorious Switch talk.
New year, new theme song! Welcome to the first episode of 2017. We have a ton of Switch news after Thursday’s live event. No surprise but we have different opinions on the system and the presentation as a whole. We break down all the games, features, specs, and our thoughts on everything. Also, Ariana Grande to be guest character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and topping the mobile download charts for 2016 is Pokémon Go. Music credit goes to Wizwars.
