The Game Awards - Mario and Zelda

The Game Awards: Mario and Zelda Showdown – Episode 77

In this episode, we talk about the nominees for the 2017 Game Awards. We have a lot of opinions on the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Odyssey. So, essentially this episode became a “what’s better” episode between the two titles. There’s other stuff, of course, as we had to review Skyrim, Octodad, Farming Simulator and This is the Police. Again, enjoy the episode, because man was it fun to discuss these things.

Super Mario Odyssey, DOOM, and Sonic Forces Reviews – Episode 76

In this episode, we talk about the best Mario game of all time, again. This time we give our spoiler-full thoughts on Super Mario Odyssey! What worked in the game, what would we change, and is Mario Odyssey 2 in the works? We’re not sure, but we sure do talk about it. Also, Jordan got to play DOOM, so he talked about that for a while. I talked about Chess Ultra, and then we had to finish things off with Sonic Forces. A great episode with lots of fun.

Spooky Nintendo Stuff

Spooky Nintendo Stuff and Waluigi’s Haunted Hospital – Episode 73

No, the whole episode isn’t about what Waluigi’s Haunted Hospital would be like, even though we think there’s some real potential. This week is our Halloween feature, and we thought it would be fun to give the Spooky Treatment to some Nintendo games. Yes, Waluigi’s Haunted Hospital is one of those games, but we talk about more, promise. We hope you enjoy this spooky Nintendo stuff episode!

This week we talk all about Super Mario Odyssey. Will it be the game that we’ve been dreaming of for years? We sure hope so! So, to celebrate its release in under two weeks, we talk about what we’re excited about! There’s also a discussion on things that we want to see that we haven’t yet seen, as well as some discussion on what we hope doesn’t happen. We also talk about quite a few games that we’ve been playing, so look forward to that.

Enof of 2017 Hype Train - Episode 70

End of 2017 Hype Train – 2017 Games of Note – Episode 70

This week we discuss some of the fun stuff that is coming at the end of the year. You could call it the “End of 2017 Hype Train.” Nintendo’s first year of the Switch has been very strong lately, and it is very promising. We also talk about some of the games that aren’t quite as exciting as we’d hope they would have been. But you know, chug-chugga choo-choo boys and girls, we’ve got so much more coming!

Metroid: Samus Returns Impressions and Retro Music – Episode 69

This week we give our first impressions of Metroid: Samus Returns. This game is so fantastic, so we talked about it for about 45 minutes. We also talk about some things they could have done to improve the game, like the control controversy, and other things. Then, of course, we have to fill up the rest of the episode with something, so we discuss retro-style music. Why is it so dominant in our culture and why do we love it so much? Enjoy this episode of the Virtual Boys Podcast!
