  2. N-E Cafe Podcast

    So, we created a trio of hosts,[mention=8211]londragon[/mention],[mention=318]Nekunando[/mention], and[mention=2520]Nicktendo[/mention], and the hope is to produce a weekly podcast, called N-E Cafe, as a subsidary program to the main website that produces a similar show to what we did previously for 41 episodes, plus bonuses, on the Nintendo Review Podcast. We were proud of the content we produced and are looking forward to do the same again with the N-Europe logo attached. If all goes to plan we should be recording the very first podcast on Tuesday, October 29th. Just in time for some Halloween based Switch scarefest. I'll keep a list of subscription choices as they become available; Podcast Providers SoundCloud - http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:724138027/sounds.rss Apple Podcasts (iTunes) - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/n-e-café/id1486597536 Stitcher - https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/ne-cafe?refid=stpr Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/51kYGdvl7TYdWT5nsTde6P Google Play/Podcasts - Should be on there, but Taiwan does not allow access to Google Podcasts??

We''l answer them in the Listener Questions section. Feedback of any kind is much appreciated, as is a positive review, wink wink, and likes across all podcast providers which help with visibility. Lastly, there will be weeks when one of us three won't be available, if anyone is interested in becoming a backup post your interest. Time however, is important. I'm situated in Taiwan, Nick in Latvia. At the moment we're looking to record weekly on a Wednesday early morning for me, which is 11pm Tuesday evening in the UK. Take that into consideration if you're interested. Other thoughts, it'd be nice if the podcast was posted at the main site, and maybe on the YouTube Channel. Something I'll ask the others about doing. If anyone is talented and can produce an intro tune, based on 80s games chiptune, would be awesome. Thanks for your patience, and we hope we can produce something that all can rally to.
  3. Switch eShop Thread

    How did it play though? Or was the demo too short to make any necessary judgement to its quality. This is one game that has been added to my wish list.
  4. It seems according to a PEGI rating that Mortal Kombat Kollection Online could be bound for Switch. PEG rating states: Mortal Kombat Kollection Online is the original Mortal Kombat trilogy that Mortal Kombat fans always wanted. Upgraded art, gameplay, and online features provide an incredible experience that revive the “klassics”… Anyone interested in the original trilogy?

    On Episode 12 of the N-E Café, the next Topic of the Week will be dedicated to Switch UI revamps. A long overdue revision would be welcome, but what do you want included? And are you satisfied with what’s on free a5 present, or is it getting a little long in the tooth?

  7. N-E Cafe Podcast

    It's been my intention to include more quotes and bits and pieces from the forums from the outset, and with this kick up the butt the intention is now turning into a reality. You should be seeing more interaction, both ways, from the forums to the podcast, and vice versa. Awesome feedback, thanks.

    I’ll tally up all the votes at the end of the month. That’ll give us time to mention it on next week’s podcast, and then a couple of days for podcast listeners to get a quick last minute vote in. So, a week and a half left.

    And without further ado, episode 11 is upon us. Bursting out with Nintendo Goodness. N-E Café [011] Is This Your Third Party? Lee and Nick host the eleventh N-E Café Podcast. Including the recent Nintendo News, games they’ve been playing (Batman: The Telltale Series & Super Mario Kart), and a listener question relating to missing third party franchises on Switch. This is episode 11 of the N-E Café Podcast, an N-Europe Podcast. Enjoy!

    @Vileplume2000 has been very busy converting the last 4 Podcast episodes into YouTube versions, and they're all up right now. Thanks!

Kirby's Dream Course (SNES) 4. Kirby's Adventure (NES) Personally, I'm voting for Kirby's Dream Land 3.
  12. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Good start to the year for me. Trying to blast my backlog as much as I can, in as short a time as I can. 1. Axiom Verge - great Metroid clone. Wonderful selection of weapons, power ups, etc, but a lot of the collectibles are too well hidden behind walls that you'd never guess could be blown up or traversed through. The glitch movement mechanic adds so much to it, but it falls down, just as other Metroid exploration games, in sections where the path to progress is difficult to find. Wandering around the same large map for 2 hours and unable to reach a new area becomes repetitive quickly. Solid, not great. 2. Super Punch-Out!! - classic. The extra power of the SNES allows for some great expression on each of the fighters, but the last Special Series is a little naff, especially the last two Bruiser brothers. 3. Bomb Chicken - a very good puzzle platformer. Simple mechanic of laying bombs to scale heights, solve puzzles, or shoot enemies, doesn't outlast it welcome. Short overall, and the last few levels do become frustratingly difficult, but the middle section of the game feels and plays fantastic. 4. Namco Museum - a little cheeky calling this completed, but I've played through all the games until I've had enough of them. Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Splatterhouse, PacMan, PacMan Vs., Galaga, Galaga '88, Dig Dug, The Tower of Druaga, Sky Kid, Tank Force. Standouts were Rolling Thunder for its nostalgia, played it in the arcade, and genuinely still stands up as a great Shinobi clone to this day. And, it was with surprise and delight that I found out that Charles Martinet voices Pac Man Vs. "PacMan ate a Cherry" in Mario's voice. Great game, wish I had two Switches to play as PacMan though. All the games look crisp and sharp in handheld mode, some support Tate mode, and great how to play sections that act like manuals. Save states are a little cumbersome compared to the NES and SNES Online app, but it's possible to save a game and continue from the point where you left off. 5. Batman - The Telltale Series - a far better game than The Walking Dead Season 1. Shorter, includes touchscreen support, and the story draws you into the multiple choice dialogue boxes unlike other Telltale games I've played. The detective linking evidence sections, the flowing combat (with swipes and screen taps, heavy QTEs), and the choices you make seem to have a massive impact on the story. Making me want to play through it again. That's enough for now.

    Ohhh, no! Nice try, but there is music from around the world throughout the Transition Tunes, hint, hint.
  14. N-Europe Video Game Club

    I’ve been meaning to pick up Slay the Spire.

    Think it’s still at the suggestions phase. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Yeah, I’d be up for Kirby’s Dream land 3, too. Never actually played it, and looking for something from the app to get into next.
  17. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Thanks for the great question @S.C.G
  18. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Any guesses on the Transition Tunes this week. A much more difficult prospect than the last 2. Good luck! And any listener questions for the next few weeks.
  19. N-E Cafe Podcast

    'N-E Café [010] A Visit to CineWorld' is here. We've made it to double digits, and raring to go for triple. This week, Lee and Nick are bringing the N-E Café Podcast into double digits. Including the recent Nintendo News, games they’ve been playing, Cuphead, Mutant Blobs Attack!!!, and many others, and a listener question relating to gaming movies, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, from our very own @WackerJr. This is episode 10 of the N-E Café Podcast. Enjoy! As usual available on all good Podcast Providers.
  20. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Obligatory weekend request for any listener questions for this week's coming podcast. We'll be hitting double digits this week with our tenth episode (that was quick), and would love to celebrate with a listener question, or 2, or 3. Thanks all.
  21. N-E Cafe Podcast

    You don’t get to see the Skype feed we use to chat to each other, and I can tell you Greg and Nick’s baffled and bewildered looks after I got to the point were priceless. [emoji38]
  22. N-E Cafe Podcast

    Well done @S.C.G It was DuckTales from the NES. The last track which introduced the Game of the Decade was indeed the Moon Theme.
  23. N-E Cafe Podcast

    N-E Café [009] Game of the Decade! is with us. And, it's another 2 hour bonanza! Trying to put 2019 into the grave, we hit the sales news hard. Greg and Nick talk about their experiences with Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD, and Lee Axiom Verge. And then the biggest of all topics, Game of the Decade.
  24. Game of the Decade

    I most certainly will, [emoji38].
  25. Thanks for all your hard [email protected] And, that goes for everyone of the staff members here. I’ve done my fair share of writing and podcast managing, editing, in my time to know how time consuming it all is. Silent heroes the lot of you. Congratulations @S.C.G. Hope to keep producing podcast content for your reign for the next few years at least.
