From Duck Hunt (1984) to Fire Emblem: Three Houses (2019), Joe and Matt are playing one game for every character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

    BONUS - Final Fantasy VII Remake

    BONUS - Final Fantasy VII Remake

    ack in the olden days of 2019 we spent about three months both playing Final Fantasy VII, one of the most iconic and influential JRPGs ever made, for the first time. As luck would have it this was done just in time for Square Enix to release the first part of their heavily requested and highly anticipated remake. So how did it turn out? Is it comparable to the original in terms of quality, or should Square not have bothered? What do we think of some of the changes they made? How is everybody’s characterization in comparison to the original? Did the soundtrack meet our high expectations? How about that ending? All that and more in this very special bonus episode!

    We’ll be back in a few weeks with our regular episode on Donkey Kong 64, see you then!

    27 - Pokemon Snap

    Pull out your camera, grab a handful of apples, and tune up your poke flute, we’re going on a safari! We’ve finally hit our first trip into the biggest media franchise in existence, even if it happens to be through a spinoff game. It’s time for Smashterpiece #27: Pokemon Snap, a strange little rail shooter where your only real goal is to get the best shot (or a lot of times any shot at all). What do our hosts remember about growing up during the height of Pokemania? Why is this such a bizarre game and where did it even come from? How do they feel about having summoned a sequel after 20 years through their words alone? All that and more in today’s episode!

    SPECIAL - Super Smash Bros (64)

    SPECIAL - Super Smash Bros (64)

    It’s taken almost two years, but we’ve finally made it into a time period where the reason for the season exists. It’s time for a very special episode about the original Super Smash Bros, the game that started it all. We talk way too long about this game, from its humble 12 character roster, to the lack of side specials, to our fun with the side modes like Break the Targets and Board the Platforms. Not to mention the origin story of the franchise, our favorite stages, the most forgotten original music in the franchise’s 20 year history, we leave no stone unturned!

    Join us next time as we raise our cameras and try to get the perfect shot in Smashterpiece #27: Pokemon Snap

    26 - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    We’ve finally arrived, riding into Hyrule Castle with naught but a fairy at our side and an ocarina in our pocket. We’ve got a job to do. It’s time for Smashterpiece #26, one of the most famously influential games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time! This time we’re joined by Sol, the designer of our lovely logo, to talk about the game that wrote the book on how to make a 3D action adventure game. What are some of the most interesting things that can be learned from taking a closer look at this game? What are our favorite and least favorite dungeons to traverse? How was our experience going through a randomized version of the game after the fact? All this and more in today’s episode!

    Join us next time for a special episode where we discuss the first reason for the season (or in this case podcast): Super Smash Bros!

    25 - Metal Gear Solid

    Who’s footprints are these…? AHA! HQ, we have located a new episode of Smashterpieces! Send reinforcements! Meanwhile we’ll get our sneaking gear ready and head off into the Alaskan wilderness. It’s time for Smashterpiece #25: Metal Gear Solid! For the first and possibly only time both hosts played two quite different versions of the game, giving them a chance to compare and contrast the pros and cons of each one. Will Matt, representing the original PlayStation classic, be able to top Joe, representing the controversial GameCube remake, in a battle of video game comparison? What was the cultural impact of this game back in 1998? What are our experiences with the rest of the Metal Gear series as well? And what do we think of our first truly vocal song? All that and more in today’s episode!

    Join us next time as we travel back and forth through time to save Hyrule in Smashterpiece #26: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    AF20 - Dragon Ball FighterZ

    Hey you! Would you like to see what it’s like to go… even further… BEYOND? No? Well, that’s too bad, because it’s time to focus your ki and transform into a Super Saiyan! Today’s episode is discussing the game representing Son Goku himself, 2018’s Dragon Ball FighterZ. How does this game feel even to those who aren’t going pro any time soon? What should this game mean to long time Dragon Ball fans? And why is most of this episode just Joe gushing about Dragon Ball lore? All this and more in this very special episode of Smashterpieces!

    Join us next time as we tell you that Geno probably isn’t going to ever be in Smash.

Cool Concept

It's fun to hear these guys go through gaming history like this. I especially like when they are passionate about the games they enjoy. On the flip side, hearing them bash a bad game is also fun. You can't go wrong with this show!

Great podcast

Do you like smash bros? That’s cool because this is a podcast made to cover all the smash bros. The hosts Joe and Matt play a game for every character that will be in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. They known for previous podcasts like Read the Manual, and Smashterpieces is overall a very good return to podcasting. I’m very bad at reviews but I hope this one gives the show justice.
