Podcast 25 – Xbox event on May 21st and Nintendo ditches E3 Press Conference

This week on the 8Bit Awesome Podcast, we discuss two huge E3-related stories, by both Microsoft and Nintendo. First, we have a lengthy discussion on Nintendo and how they will be skipping out on their annual press conference normally held in the Nokia Theatre prior to E3. We talk about what it means for Nintendo and for the future of E3 as a whole (2K entertainment also recently announced they will be missing the convention). Next, we give our opinions on the other headline story of the week, that Microsoft will hold a special event on May 21 to reveal their new console, prior to E3 and a handful of other “NextBox” rumors.  Thanks for listening to another long, but hopefully entertaining episode of the 8bitAwesome Podcast!

Podcast 24 – A Link to the Past 2, 3DS Nintendo Direct, and “What about the Wii U?”

This week on the 8Bit Awesome Podcast, we marvel at the mountain of megatons that were masterfully made known at the Nintendo Direct. Not only were we given a ton of info, trailers, and gameplay footage for games that we already knew about (Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Super Luigi U) but Nintendo also decided to bestow us with 3 big reveals. First, was a 3DS sequel to Yoshi’s Island. Also, Nintendo announced that Earthbound was finally going to hit the VC with the launch of the service next week. Finally, and most importantly however, was the announcement of a sequel to A Link to the Past. Listen to what we think of all the news (and lack of Wii U news) in this weeks edition of the 8Bit Awesome Podcast! Thanks for listening

Podcast 22 – Microsoft ‘Xbox 720’ always online, LucasArts shut down, and Mewthree

We’ve got big news this week, from Disney’s shut down of Lucas Art, to the release of a Mewto evolution? Even more importantly though, we discuss the recent tweets by Adam Orth (a Creative Director, or rather, former Creative Dir3ector, at Microsoft) that defended always online. We also quickly discuss the best headphones for your money (Will’s suggestion: Sony MDR7506) and some iOS titles including Super Stick Man Golf, Sonic Dash, and more. Finally, Will revisits Luigi’s Mansion and give a final verdict. Thanks for joining us for another week of the 8Bit Awesome Podcast!
