    Episode 271: Game Garages, Stadiums, and Skateparks

    Game Builder Garage was announced hours before recording, so John and Neal open by talking about Nintendo's upcoming game-making game. Then, Neal talks through his conflicted feelings of EA buying Super Mega Baseball developers Metalhead Software as well as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2's Switch release date bringing the end of Vicarious Visions closer to reality. The duo talk more about Star Fox because after all, that's what you came here for. Stay on target, though. Next week should be a Star Wars one.

    Episode 270: New Pokemon Snapchat

    Budding photographer John Rairdin sits down with Neal Ronaghan to talk about New Pokemon Snap. John reviewed it for Nintendo World Report and both hosts have things to say about the sequel 22 years in the making. But before that, Neal sings the praises of Fly Together and the pair dive into the bucket of listener mail. We even gave away a game! And the recipient...like Balan Wonderworld? Man alive, I didn't believe it myself. Enjoy the show and hey - maybe send in some listener mail of your own? We might have more giveaways if so.

    Episode 269: The Star Fox Zero 5th Anniversary Spectacular

    Episode 269: The Star Fox Zero 5th Anniversary Spectacular

    The year was 2016. After a delay, Star Fox Zero came out on the Wii U. Rumors of what would eventually become the Switch were swirling. Everyone wanted to know what was up with that new Zelda game. John Rairdin and Neal Ronaghan were too busy enjoying the crap out of Star Fox Zero, though.

    Join John and Neal as they recount the origins of the heavy GamePad-using title from its origins as a Miyamoto experiment to its life as a PlatinumGames-developed release. We relish in their experience with the game at E3 2015, and then talk about the 2016 review process. We even engage in some tinfoil-hat conspiracies about cut content and major changes. To close, we speculate as to if Star Fox Zero could come to Switch.

    Episode 268: Indie World Reactions

    Episode 268: Indie World Reactions

    Nintendo timed their latest Indie World well as John and Neal get to talk about the new announcements and games featured in the April 14, 2021 Indie World with guest (and former co-host) Zach Miller. They touch on what they're excited for, including OlliOlli World, Labyrinth City, Aztech, and so much more.

    As always, they veer off topic but circle back around to talk about Zach's experiences with Pokemon Sword and Shield. He's late to the party, but expresses his enjoyment and dismay about the latest entry in the franchise. Also listen in to see a way how you can win a Switch game code. We're not going to spoil it. You have to listen, dude.

    Episode 267: Pac-Man Fever

    Episode 267: Pac-Man Fever

    We got 99 problems and winning in Pac-Man 99 ain't one. After John shares his Pac-Man 99 strats, he tells Neal all about Star Wars: Republic Commando and the pitfalls of the Switch port. A few digressions take us everywhere from Satoru Iwata to Resident Evil books and then Neal finally gets to unfurl his thoughts on Fantasian, as well as how ridiculous the bevy of new Apple Arcade additions last week was.

    Episode 266: The Key to Democracy is the Wii Everybody Votes Channel

    Episode 266: The Key to Democracy is the Wii Everybody Votes Channel

    High-tiered Mario Kart Tour player Justin Berube joins John and Neal to talk about Mario Kart Tour (in loose honor of its 1.5 year anniversary?). But before we get there, we have a lot of planned and unplanned stops along the way. We cover the recent previews of New Pokemon Snap while diverging into a meditation on Pokemon spinoffs and the potential of increasing the voting populace in America with the Everybody Votes Channel on Wii. Then we stop off on some physical game talk as we become the only podcast this week to mention the game Poi. It's a wild ride, so we hope you pulled a good racer/kart/glider combo.
