Famicom Dojo Podcast: NES Remix
NES Remix is the kind of game made for someone who hasn’t delved into the 8-bit world in a long time, or for someone who is too young (say, under 25) to have had the kind of exposure us 30-somethings have had to Nintendo’s early offerings. When you already know how to Turtle Tip and visit the Minus World, you spend more time trying to break the game than beat the challenges, as evidenced below.
You can read Jody’s earlier impressions about NES Remix, but if you’re hankering to hear how to push the boundaries of the game, then the latest episode of the Famicom Dojo Podcast is for you! Vinnk and I also try out two new segments: Future Retro, where we discuss the would-be classics of the next generation; and Pile of Shame, where we goad each other into playing games that we know we should have already finished, but for some reason haven’t even begun.
