Game|Life Podcast: Making the Nintendo Switch
Were you wondering what the Game|Life podcast crew thinks about the Nintendo Switch? Wonder no longer, for here are TIME’s Matt Peckham, WIRED’s Julie Muncy, and me to tell you all about it: Our impressions of the games, of the platform, how we think it’ll do out there on the market, and also some stuff about Fire Emblem. And why I think they should just rename it the “Nintendo Chris Kohler.”
Game|Life Podcast: Mario Run, Last Guardian and More
WIRED’s Chris Kohler and Time’s Matt Peckham discuss Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Run, The Last Guardian, and Final Fantasy XV on the year’s last Game|Life podcast!
Game|Life Podcast: So… Titanfall 2, or Call of Duty?
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Titanfall 2. Dishonored 2. So many games, so little time. What should you play? WIRED’s Jake Muncy has played all three (just a few hours of Dishonored 2, though), so I take this opportunity to quiz her on the results of Blockbuster Brawl 2016.
Plus, I yell about the NES Classic Edition, as you knew I might! What does this mean for Nintendo in the long run? The answer may shock you. Or not.
Game|Life Podcast: Nintendo Switches It On
Nintendo Switch is the talk of the day on this episode of the Game|Life Podcast. But would you expect anything else?
It’s so nice to be able to say that what was formerly known as the Nintendo NX is, in fact, exactly what we suspected it was: a tablet that docks to your TV. Now that we know exactly what it is, we can talk about what Nintendo didn’t say today, and what that might mean. Do those Joy-Cons have motion sensors in them? (Maybe.) Is that screen a touch screen? (It’s gotta be.)
Game|Life Podcast: Mafia III, Gears of War 4, and Lots of VR
Oh man, it’s October, isn’t it? That means there’s way too much happening in videogames to keep up with. So many virtual realities.
On this week’s Game|Life Podcast, Jake Muncy and Matt Peckham discuss Mafia III, out today. Jake’s been playing Gears of War 4. Matt and I have been playing PlayStation VR, and talk about Thumper in a little more depth than I think we expected. And I, fresh back from Oculus Connect, add some more details to my story about Lone Echo.
Game|Life Podcast: From Tokyo to Virginia
Chris is back from Tokyo Game Show and has some thoughts on virtual reality, Final Fantasy XV, Rez Infinite, and more.
Meanwhile, TIME’s Matt Peckham has played the new indie game Virginia and also the new Destiny expansion Rise of Iron—or, well, he tried to, anyway. It’s all on this week’s Game|Life Podcast.
