Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Review This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, the next generation of hosts, Cameron Daxon, Marc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill, approach the upcoming holiday season with their latest batch of ideas, reviews, and impressions for listeners. Starting things off, the cast dives right in to discuss some stocking stuffing-sized gifts including memberships and games to grab before the season of sales comes to end and the days of giving fully sets in motion. In the main feast of the show, Cameron delves into the commendable online streaming version of Control, while Campbell gushes about The Legend of Zelda’s greatest spin-off yet with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. To end things off before the usual Indie Games Spotlight featuring the tasty party favor treat Cake Bash, Marc has some rather mixed thoughts to provide the others with after experiencing the first few hours of Ubisoft’s new Immortals Fenyx Rising releasing next month.

Best Of The NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Super Mario World Review
There are about eight Mario adventures that could easily be listed within the lexicon of the greatest games ever made, and Super Mario World, released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, sits somewhere near the top of that list. Super Mario World helped define the 16-bit era, transforming the classic Mario formula into something bigger, faster, brighter, and some would say, better. In episode 15 of the NXpress Podcast (recorded way back in 2015), we reviewed the SNES classic, and debated where exactly it belongs on the list of best Mario games.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast 206: ‘Hades,’ ‘Spiritfarer’ and ‘Short Hike’
This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, the Goomba Stomp team catches up on some indie games we haven’t yet had a chance to discuss on the show. In the opening segment, we discuss Spiritfarer, the cozy management game about dying from Thunder Lotus Games, and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, a bite-sized adventure packed with charm and action, that is just as fun today as it was a decade ago. Closing out the opening spot is a quick review of Raji: An Ancient Epic, a fresh take on the now saturated action/adventure genre. In the main event, we finally get around to reviewing Hades from Supergiant Games— a game that many critics are calling one of the best of the year. And last but not least, we set aside some time to talk about A Short Hike, a charming title all about soaking up the joy of nature, interactions, and the discoveries they lead to. Joining the show this week is guest hosts Marty Allen, Campbell Gill and Cameron Daxton. Enjoy!

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Ranking Nintendo’s Console
The Virtual Boy proved to be a dismal failure for Nintendo but in many ways, it was ahead of its time. The Nintendo DS came at the perfect time, long before mobile games and remains the second best-selling video game console of all time (eventually beaten out by the PlayStation 2). The Game Boy is the toughest gaming console ever made, sturdy enough to survive a bomb. The Game Boy Advance helped further advanced sprite-based technology. WII led the “console wars” selling more than 101 million units in the first quarter of 2012. Wii U is still home to four of the greatest games Nintendo has ever made. Nintendo 3DS stayed relevant for the longest time especially when the Wii U suffered in sales. The GameCube was home to a stellar lineup of fantastic games. Nintendo 64 had a collection of genre-busting, industry-redefining, titles. The NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983 and introduced a plethora of now-iconic video game characters, a ton of accessories and it forever changed the relationship of console manufacturers and third-party software developers. Super NES took the formula established by the NES and made it bigger, faster, and better in every way imaginable. But what is the best Nintendo console? In this segment from the NXpress Nintendo Podcast episode 14, we duked it out, and boy did the conversation get heated.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: A Celebration of the Super Mario Bros. NES Games
Thirty-plus years later after the release of Super Mario Bros., Mario remains the face of video gaming and one of the most recognizable characters in any medium. He’s appeared in over two hundred games, collectively selling over two hundred million units and thanks to the heroic Italian plumber, Nintendo helped end the video game crash of 1983. Super Mario Bros. is one of the gaming’s great masterpieces, and in celebration of the 30 year anniversary, we decided to look back at the original three games released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. What follows is the main event from episode 13 of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast. Enjoy!

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: ‘Earthbound’ Review
The SNES is arguably home to some of the best Japanese role-playing games ever made, but even among such revered company, Earthbound stands as one of the most memorable games released on the system. In this segment (recorded way back in 2015), Rick and Tim invited Chris Miller and Arron Santos to discuss Shigesato Itoi’s masterpiece on the 20th anniversary of the game’s release.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast 204: ‘Super Mario 3D All-Stars’ and ‘Circuit Dude’
It seems like it was just yesterday that Nintendo was announcing its compilation of 3D Mario games, and now here we are just two weeks later reviewing the collection on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast. Here are two of the greatest games ever made (and Super Mario Sunshine) in a compilation that’s well worth the price yet somewhat lacking in new features. Thankfully, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is more than a simple port— and to tell you all about it, we’ve invited Goomba Stomp’s Marc Kaliroff and Cameron Daxon to help us review it. Also, on tap is a review of Circuit Dude, a new puzzle game on Switch that strikes a balance between being very straightforward and demonically hard.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Revisiting ‘The Wizard’
Although e-sports have long been a part of video game culture since the early ’70s, competitions saw a large surge in popularity in 1989 when Universal Pictures-produced The Wizard, a movie about a trio of kids who make their way to a national Nintendo video game championship for a grand prize of $50,000. The Wizard didn’t go down as a timeless, cinematic classic, but it did develop an understandable cult following as the years went on, and in this segment, we tell you why.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: ‘Super Mario 64’
In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and discussed Super Mario 64, arguably one of the greatest video games to date, and one which all games would be judged henceforth. How does it hold up today? Listen in and find out what we think. Editor’s Note: Sadly, half of this 50-minute review was accidentally deleted. We plan on revisiting Super Mario 64 again in the near future.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: ‘Super Mario Galaxy’
In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and finally got around to discussing the third 3D original platformer in the series after Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The iconic mascot’s long resume features some of the greatest platformers to ever grace any home console and on this episode, we reviewed Super Mario Galaxy, created by Nintendo’s EAD Tokyo studio, whose first project (believe it or not) was DK Jungle Beat, a disappointing flop for Nintendo.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: ‘Super Mario Sunshine’ Review
It was a brave move on the part of Nintendo to launch the GameCube without a Mario game. Instead, Mario’s younger sibling took the spotlight in a new series Luigi’s Mansion. It was six years after Super Mario 64 was released that Nintendo gave us Super Mario Sunshine. In this segment— taken from episode 21 of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast— we take a look back on Mario’s summer getaway and everything that made the beautiful tropical island of Delfino so frustrating and fun.

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.

NXpress Nintendo Podcast #199: ‘Journey to the Savage Planet’ and Games Never Ported
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.

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.
