You don't need to be a rocket scientist
Simply the best Nintendo-related podcast around, and has been for many years. The guys provide intelligent, in-depth discussion while maintaining the fun and humour. Great fan participation through regular mailbags and the chance to vote, play along and contribute to the discussion of older games through Retroactive. Discussion of games and news from non-Nintendo platforms provides a welcome scope and context. Professionally produced and edited and delivered regular as clockwork, including live shows for Child's Play and recorded from PAX. Keep it up guys - your work is much appreciated!
One of the things that makes this show so great is the wealth of Nintendo knowledge each and every host has. Informative conversation on video games both old and new. Definetely worth a listen for any gamer, if you are new to Nintendo or have been a Nintendo fan for since the 8-bit era this is a must listen!
This is the gaming podcast I always have at the front of my queue. If you enjoy intelligent gaming discussion, not just Nintendo, you really need to check this podcast out. Unlike so many podcasts out there (even commercial ones), this one is tightly edited so pacing is always spot on. There’s a nice mix of personalities and opinions and plenty of running jokes to make my long trip to and from work a joy. Highly recommended.
