Matt came back
I’m so happy to see Matt Casamassina came back for an episode. I’ve been listening since day one and very glad to hear his opinion. With games like Giant dancing plushies it good to see him post apple. Thanks Super Ninfendos!
Great source for Nintendo news. I think Casey is a good host. Always fun to listen to their discussions and listening to this podcast always puts me in a good mood :) At times unnecessarily political (mostly Peer).
Love the reviews, hearing about what they’re playing, and Nintendo speculation and rumors, but I really wish they would let Peer and Zach host more often. Let’s also swap the hosts from Gamescoop every once in awhile or have them fill in occasionally.
