Long before Mario captured our hearts as the star of an endless runner on mobile devices, he was featured in games and educational software that were not made by Nintendo at all! We explore this shocking subject this week.
Square Enix finally invents Stable Mode: perfect for when video game horses are not getting sufficient quantities of oats and lack routine brushings and washings–or when one needs a burly groom to saddle up an alternative means of petrol-free transport!
Nintendo transforms tweens into thots, The Witcher author is super salty about the game’s success, and RIME’s creative director cannot handle negative feedback in the news of the week!
Sebahamut inches ever closer to the end of Final Fantasy VI, Reetin plays the new game mode in Overwatch and cannot whip diagonally in Super Castlevania IV, and Lusipurr talks to Sebahamut about his love life while playing Super Mario All-Stars.
In the course of this podcast, Lusipurr, Adeki, and Sebahamut contact Tim Allen to arrange an interview. He does not respond, and consequently this podcast does not feature an interview with Tim Allen. Sad!
The Chinese Room is unhappy at Xbox owners getting the ability to refund, Nintendo halts production of the NES Classic, and the Switch version of Breath of the Wild has managed to sell more copies than the Nintendo Switch itself in the news of the week!
Reading about the people behind the hardware and software that make up the last fifty years of gaming history is a rewarding process, and can immediately transform any fan of gaming into a student of this fantastic subject as well.
Reetin finishes Lost Odyssey, Sebahamut demonstrates that he is incompetent with both Final Fantasy VI and Super Mario Maker, and Lusipurr shows him how it is done.
Bread, bread, bread. Also mustard, cricket, video games, anime, and music of the 1990s. But more or less primarily, if we are entirely honest, this is a podcast about, concerning, centred around, and otherwise with a focus on that staple worldwide: bread.
In a week of play-throughs, Reetin plays Lost Odyssey, Lusipurr plays The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Sebahamut plays Final Fantasy VI, and Adeki plays Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.
