    Episode 158 - Game of The Year 2019 Special Part 1!

    It's finally time to kick off our end of the year celebrations! We have a lot of podcasts coming out in December and this is the start! We kick things off with Nbz and the Mario Maker 2 update that added Link as well as a whole bunch of new course parts and a new mode! Bally then talks about a modern classic in Journey that he recently picked up on PS4 and Nbz closes things out with Cadence of Hyrule, the rhythm based Zelda spin off from earlier this year. After the break we read some of your e-mails that break down your Game of the Year lists, before closing the show out with our personal Top 10 Games of the Year That Didn't Come Out This Year. A tradition that continues as strong as ever! Be sure to keep your eyes on our twitter account for all the information on every podcast we'll be publishing this month!

    Episode 146 - Cadence of Hyrule, Bloodstained & Nintendo Post E3 Discussion

    Episode 146 - Cadence of Hyrule, Bloodstained & Nintendo Post E3 Discussion

    Hey everyone! After the onslaught of information that was E3, we are finally back with the show, and BOY do we have a lot to talk about. We kick things off with Bally who has been hopping and bopping around Zelda land in Cadence of Hyrule, which was recently released on Switch. He also checks in with some Star Wars VR, takes the stage for his Kingdom Hearts minute and closes thoughts on Steam World Quest. Nbz meanwhile has been in the Game Pass afterglow and has been checking out a bunch of games on the service, including Super Lucky's Tale (which is headed to Switch), Forza Horizon 4 and finally The Gardens Between. But that's not all folks, as Nbz backed Bloodstained Ritual of the Night years ago he finally gets his hands in the game and is more impressed that he expected to be! After the break we do a big old E3 discussion, chatting about the Treehouse as well as our predictions and some of your thoughts on E3 overall.

    Episode 144 - Mario Maker 2 Direct & Detective Pikachu Review!

    Episode 144 - Mario Maker 2 Direct & Detective Pikachu Review!

    Hey everyone, this week we have a bit of a mish mash of a show for you! We kick things off with a brief what we've been playing covering some smaller games. Bally talks about Golf Peaks, a neat little puzzle game he picked up with gold coins on the Switch e-shop. Nbz has also been using some My Nintendo coins and grabbed Splash or Crash for 3DS, a game about dropping a stone down a well. After this we answer an email about spoilers in video games and the culture around spoilers generally. When we come back from the break we break down the latest news about Mario Maker 2 from the 15 minute direct, before chatting about Detective Pikachu and all our thoughts on the debut Pokemon movie. We do end up talking spoilers, so when we get to that point, skip to 1:32:00 in the podcast to avoid them!

    Episode 138 - Reggie Retires, Xbox on Switch & Pokemon Sword & Shield!

    Hey folks! This week on the show all the Nintendo news keeps coming, even after the big Direct in February. Before we get to news though we dig into what we've been playing starting with Bally who has finished up Wargroove and can't be more happy about it! Nbz meanwhile checked out some of the shadow drops from the recent direct including Tetris 99, the Daemon X Machina demo & the Yoshi's Crafted World Demo. He has also been playing the incredibly weird Pool Panic on Switch. After the break we dig into some e-mails you've sent our way including our thoughts on how to change 2D Mario and what other video games we would create the "Ultimate" version of in light of Smash Bros Ultimate. We then close things out with a discussion on various pieces of news including Reggie Fils-Aime's retirement, rumours of Xbox games and Gamepass coming to Nintendo Switch and finally the big reveal of the latest Pokemon games, Sword and Shield!

    Episode 137 - Nintendo Direct Mario Maker 2 & Link's Awakening !

    Hey everyone! This week Nintendo dropped a big Direct bomb and we're here to talk about it! Before we do that though we have some thoughts on the biggest battle royale around at the moment, Apex Legends! Nbz has also been playing Battle Chef Brigade, an awesome anime/cooking/combat/puzzle game that really doesn't sound like it would work, but sticks the landing in a ton of great ways. After the break we do indeed break down the Nintendo Direct with thoughts on Mario Maker 2, Link's Awakening, Astral Chain, Fire Emblem Three Houses and more! Remember our next Backlog Club game is Luigi's Mansion so get playing and we'll be discussing it soon!

Great discussion and entertaining hosts

I’ve been listening to This Nintendo Life for around eighteen months and I always enjoy the content that NBZ and Bally produce.

Their love for all things Nintendo is clear to see and as a Ninty fanboy myself it is nice to be in such company.

I felt compelled to write this review as recently I listened to NBZ’s top 100 games. That episode was clearly a labour of love and the breadth of games talked about piqued my interest to the point that a couple of those titles have been downloaded onto my Switch.

I would really be interested in Bally’s top 100 or top 50 to contrast and compare. Anyway keep up the good work and here’s to many more episodes from the both of you.

Cheers
