In this episode:
- Nintendo! Nintendo! Nintendo! Admittedly, the
guys a’re fanboys, but they’ve earned that title. Both of their
earliest memories involve warm fuzzies emanating from the original
- Between Beej’s parents having Duck Hunt
competitions, and Void playing Super Mario Bros. at daycare, the
guys have both owned every single Nintendo system that was released
(except for Beej--he just couldn’t do it for the Wii U, and he
tells you why!).
Wii is one of the the most innovative consoles ever created, and it
ate up much of Void’s college years through Wii Sports Bowling, and
somehow Nintendo’s Wii Fit balance board made Beej have body image

there’s nothing inherently special about screens, gave them ability
to pause the game when life happens (and to know when to do so!),
and lets them have autonomy and discover their own boundaries. If
you like true, hardcore adulting with your geekery, this is the
podcast for you!
- What’s next for Nintendo? Well, the NX comes
out in early 2017 and might be a hybrid console. Or it might not
be! We don’t know! And Nintendo’s first foray into mobile gaming
with Miitomo seems like a miss, but the upcoming Fire Emblem,
Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Go titles should seriously make up for
- Beej’s Health Hack leveled up and got its own
weekly podcast! More health, more fitness, more geekery, and
definitely more of that wonderful Tennessee accent you all love so
much. Check it out on
iTunes (or wherever you listen to podcasts.
