166: Kirby Star Allies, Ni no Kuni II and Video Game Heroes

Episode Summary

We talk about Ni no Kuni II, Kirby Star Allies and PUBG War Mode. We also talk about what makes a great video game hero.

Episode Notes

Kirby Star Allies is the first “first-party” Nintendo game of the year. Does it deliver strong for 2018? We talk about whether or not it is a worthwhile first party title. It features 4 player co-op and beautiful 3D platforming worlds. We also dive into Ni no Kuni II; a much-anticipated sequel to the JRPG Ni no Kuni. Brett and Austin also try out PUBG’s War Mode to see how it changes the dynamic for the battle royale game.

In our news, Boss Key Productions announces their new passion project Radical Heights. It’s an 80’s inspired battle royale game show. Weird concept. Will it succeed? Sea of Thieves is getting some much needed new content, drugs were found in NES cartridges and Drake says he’ll rap about Fortnite If they make a hotline bling emote.

Our discussion is submitted from a fan of the show David. He asks us the question “what makes a great video game hero?” We talk about what makes a hero and dive into whether or not a character should have a face to the name. We hope you enjoy!
