CC014 – Switching to Super Smash Bros.

Here’s over an hour of discussion focusing solely on the Super Smash Bros. for Switch announcement! We’re excited for what it will bring to the table… and cautious about what it may leave behind. I’m also trying a new format where I touch on recent releases and news before jumping into the actual topic, so I hope you enjoy! Also a big thanks to my friend Nathan for joining me in this discussion!

Don’t forget to give a listen to a previous episode of the Cube Command Podcast, where I discuss the history, present, and future state of the industry of podcasting with Todd Cochrane, CEO of RawVoice – which is the parent company of Blubrry – and host of the Geek News Central Podcast and the New Media Show. I would like to give a thank you to Todd for agreeing to do the interview!

Also, check out my interview with Jonathan Holmes, the developer of Circuit Dude on Steam!

Gamestop is jumping back into the “Retro” business

Everyone loves the classics

Gamestop, a gaming retail company, will now accept your retro gaming hardware and games. “Retro gaming” includes the NES, SEGA Genesis, Gamecube, among others. Gamestop has a complete list of the systems on their website. What is also interesting is that they have a number of different retro games and consoles for sale on their website as well. After previously dropping the retro business, it seems that the company is jumping back in, which isn’t a bad thing by any means.

 

The picture featured in the Tweet announcing their new business direction.

 

This will be apparent in all of Gamestop’s locations. So far, it only looks to be available in their online store, but chances are they might move some of the stock into the retail stores themselves eventually. Perhaps if they receive enough trade-ins to warrant that.

Will you be taking advantage of this new direction for Gamestop?

More Crash Bandicoot on ThatGuyAntio!

I’ve been playing Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex on my Youtube Channel, ThatGuyAntio recently, and the latest episode (Episode #5) has me fighting the boss of the second world. I’ll just say this right now: I die. A lot. Nevertheless, I still think its a fun game.

Anyways, go ahead – give it a watch and tell me what you think! If you enjoy it, go ahead and give my other videos a look!

Preview Trailer of Nintendo NX tomorrow

It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for. Nintendo has finally announced when we will get our first look at their new system, Codename NX.

Apparently, a “preview trailer” will drop tomorrow, October 20, at 7am PT/10am ET. Set your clocks! At a press release, they mentioned the trailer will “serve as Nintendo’s preliminary announcement of information regarding the platform”. A tweet was sent out to further advertise this announcement.

The picture that came along with the Tweet

According to Nintendo, the NX is set to launch sometime during March 2017. It is rumored to be something the industry hasn’t seen before, such as a mix of a handheld and home console, where the former would dock to create the latter. Aside from other developers praising it, that’s all we know so far. One can only wonder what lies ahead.

Are you excited? What are your hopes for the Big N’s next console? Let us know in the comments!

I’ve been continuing my playthrough of Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex for the Nintendo Gamecube, and the latest episode is #4, where I finish the last three levels of the second world (and my least favorite one). There are some wonky levels in this game. Go ahead and check it out! In the next episode we will be tackling the boss, so stay tuned!
