    #215 - So... How Did Nintendo Go At E3 This Year?

    On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Michael to dig right into those E3 announcements! Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Metroid Dread, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, Mario Party Superstars, the Breath of the Wild sequel… Oh my! 

    We also reflect back on our E3 predictions from episode 213 to see how much we got wrong (spoilers: it was a lot).
    Which announcement got you the most amped? Will you be getting the Legend of Zelda Game & Watch? Are you as exhausted as we are about the constant swirling of the Switch Pro? Side-flip yourself to the Vooks Discord and join the discussion!

    #213 - Is a Critical New Game Function Worth an Extra $35?

    On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Michael to consider whether locking important, new game improvements behind an amiibo paywell is a worthy investment, as well as react to the next 5-game drop on NSO’s S/NES apps. There’s also another high-profile 35th anniversary livestream coming this week (finish your beer!).
    With no real word yet about Nintendo announcements at E3 this year, we decide to do what we do best and speculate: this week’s featured topic is our E3 predictions! 
    How do you feel about having to find and buy an amiibo to access critical game functions? Did any of the new S/NES games get you excited? What are YOUR E3 2021 predictions? Fast travel to the Vooks Discord and join the discussion!

    On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Michael to look at Nintendo’s latest financial earnings and whether or not Animal Crossing: New Leaf is still ridiculously successful (hint: it is). The gang also reacts to the surprise announcement of Super Mario Party’s online multiplayer update, and the government’s new tax offset scheme for local game development starting next year.
    In our featured discussion, we focus a lens on New Pokémon Snap and find out if this is finally the Pokémon game for Michael.

    On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Michael and are puzzled by a new Pokémon stamp collection coming to AusPost in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.

    Just for fun, this week’s discussion topic is our favourite soundtrack from Nintendo-published games, and of course, Ollie has some opinions!
