Great Nintendo Show

Casey, Tom, Peter and Brian are the A-Team when delivering a Nintendo news and discussing what going on in the world of the big N. Show can be brought down from time to time when Zach joins since he can’t make it through a sentence without cracking a joke but not even he can make the show unbearable.

It has changed a lot over the years

I have a hard time listening nowadays because of all the recent Pokémon news. They cover it, however, as a hardcore Pokémon fan it’s hard to listen to them discuss when even the host doesn’t seem to know exactly what is going on. The show is still fairly well done. I’m not a huge fan the newest cast, I’m sure I will always miss Jose lol

Not to dog in the show in any way. I feel like Bryan should be host but I’m sure they all stay busy and Casey is probably the only one willing to put in the extra time to get it done. I’m grateful for the years I’ve gotten out of the show but feel I am on my last leg with keeping up with it at this point

Any episode without Peer or Casey is missing something

I’m a big fan but feel the show lacks a little bit without Peer or Casey. I know everybody has responsibilities outside of the podcast but whenever Peer isn’t there I’m a little let down.

Thanks for the best Nintendo podcast!
