[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #87 – Embarrassing childhood shenanigans, Paper Mario frustrations
This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we start off with a melodramatic anime opening about Galen traveling during the pandemic. Galen has survived (for now…) and has horrible puns and impressions on Min Min in Smash Bros., while Oni Dino can’t get enough Xenoblade. We then cover recent news, including new details on the soon-to-be-released Paper Mario: The Origami King. Will Origami King avoid gameplay flaws of the past two entries, Sticker Star and Color Splash? We also discuss what frustrations long-time fans feel with modern Paper Mario games. Is the player expectation VS developer intent unfair? And lastly, we share some embarrassing things we did as kids, inspired by video games.
Check out links and timestamps below, and come hang out.
