Bobby and Chase break down last week’s Nintendo Direct. Despite Chase’s despondency over a lack of Fire Emblem details, we rave about the new and refreshed games coming to 3DS and Switch in the coming year and beyond.
We wish the Nintendo Switch a happy birthday and go over our thoughts and feelings on the one-year-old console (and looking at every other gaming site, we weren’t the only ones with that idea.)
We look forward to near-future game releases in our March preview (and we reflect on February’s crop of titles, some more fondly than others.)
Bobby’s back this week and we have a lot to catch up on. Chase has wrapped up Shadow of the Colossus, Bobby’s “finished” Monster Hunter World and both guys went on the emotional rollercoaster of Florence.
Co-founder of some lame podcast called The Casual Hour, Johnny Amizich, returns home to guest host on…The Casual Hour? It’s only weird for a minute, and then we get right back into the swing of things.
We’re joined by The Short Game’s Raygan Kelly and Nate Heininger as we talk about, well, short games (kind of the whole point in bringing them on,) those palate cleansers packed to the brim with creativity and innovation.
We debut a new recurring segment as we look forward to the games of February, a month of remakes, ports and adaptations that somehow still have us excited. But we can’t look too far ahead, for there are a ton of new releases we’re plugging away on.
We’re styling and profiling as we talk about our favorite games with style. What is style exactly? Well, we try to construct a bit of a working definition.
We bring on our first guest of 2018, Zach Fleeman. Zach’s a YouTuber/streamer and is just launching his new series, Save Your Coins, where he looks for the hidden gems among the bevy of cheap and free games available on Steam.
We break down all the announcements from Nintendo’s stealth Direct Mini (and Chase laments the lack of Fire Emblem information). Despite the “mini” nature, there was a lot to unpack here, along with a few fun surprises.
