Not enough knowledge to be interesting

I was really geeked for this podcast when I learned about it, but I’m disappointed by the execution.

These guys don’t really have sufficient knowledge of the system’s history or library to make their discussions interesting. Too often, they make wrong assertions or hypothesize about answers to questions that more well-read Nintendo fans would already know, but never actually look them up to answer them.

And they don’t seem to do much prep before each issue. Prior to reviewing an issue, you’d think maybe they’d try to play a few minutes of the cover-featured games, or do a little more reasearch about things featured in the issue so that maybe they can add some additional background knowledge to the discussion. But they don’t do either of these things.

In summary: This is 2 or 3 non-expert fans stepping through NP issues and cracking off-color jokes. If their humor is on your wavelength, you might like it. If you’re looking to learn history or trivia about Nintendo or its games, you may be disappointed.
