On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Michael to consider whether locking important, new game improvements behind an amiibo paywell is a worthy investment, as well as react to the next 5-game drop on NSO’s S/NES apps.

Luke and Ollie have had extensive time with the game in the lead up to their reviews, and give us the low-down on what to expect getting into later parts of the game.There have also been some really interesting rumours (because there’s no shortage of them) surrounding the Switch Pro, suggesting it might incorporate DLSS for upscaling docked gameplay to 4K.

On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie and Luke to look back on a week of… not much, really. Takaya Imamura, character designer of Fox McCloud and Falco, among many others, departed Nintendo after 32 years. And another important behind-the-scenes figure, Sonic the Hedgehog voice actor Roger Craig Smith, is also no longer part of Sega after a decade.But while it was a quiet couple of weeks, we still come together to look back on some stand out games made in Australia, and compare our favourite/least enjoyable Zelda games. Then, of course, we finish off with another round of Nintendo 20 Questions!What do you think Roger Craig Smith’s departure from Sonic means for the franchise?

On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Chris Lawn to dive into last week’s trailers of Nintendo’s biggest 2021 releases (that we know of): New Pokémon Snap and New Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. We also quickly discuss Super Nintendo World’s recently-delayed opening, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons being Australia’s highest-selling game of 2020.In light of news swirling around Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, and Katy Perry jumping on the marketing bandwagon, the show’s featured topic is whether or not these big anniversary events are becoming irrelevant. And topping the show off is a new round of Nintendo 20 Questions!Are you excited as I am to hurl food at Pokémon and snap their candid reactions this year?

On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie, Luke, and Daniel W to look back on 2020 and realise that… Nintendo actually put out a pretty hefty amount of releases.

On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Luke and Daniel W to squee with glee at the first official look at Super Nintendo World. We then turn our attention to the joint statement out of Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo about their pledge to combat toxic online gaming and take responsibility for providing a safer environment for young gamers.In further news about March 31’s annihilation day for Mario games (because we just can’t seem to steer clear of this story), NOA President, Doug Bowser, has gone on the record to say this timed-release marketing scheme is a “celebration” of Mario’s 35th anniversary. Hmm.In our final featured discussion of 2020 we share our most memorable Nintendo Christmas moments, and top the show off with Nintendo 20 Questions!What are your fondest Nintendo memories of Christmas?

On this week's Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie and Luke to find any substance in industry analyst Michael Pachter suggesting that Nintendo ditch the Switch (sort of). We also delve further into how much of a success the Switch is compared to some of Nintendo’s other phenomenal console sales. Plus a previously Japanese-only classic gets a re-release announcement, following the disturbingly familiar trend of being available digitally for a short period of time.
