Nintendo Podcast: Live Live Review
RPG Overload, I Choose You! This week on the NXPress Nintendo Podcast, Cameron Daxon, Marc Kaliroff and Campbell Gill return from their brief hiatus for an episode filled to the brim with role-playing delights. The gang begins by reacting to the latest Pokemon Presents showcase, which gave us much more than an adorable bread dog: in addition to a set of exhilarating mobile game updates, we also delved into the fascinating world of scarlet and purple with a presentation that could have given us more questions than answers. Will we have access to legendary Pokémon from the start? How will all three stories work in the open world environment? Will we ever be able to use the Pokéball Plus controller again? Only time will tell, and there’s always time for Game Freak to hurt us again.
Then we keep the fun of capturing monsters looking Coromon, an RPG that takes just a little bit inspired by Pokemon. It might not be the most original adventure, but it’s great fun with beautiful graphics, in-depth combat, and engaging exploration for those who want a nice little RPG to accompany them until we let’s be honored Scarlet and violent.
Last but not least, Campbell celebrates the lost masterpiece that is live alive, the once-Japan-exclusive RPG that finally made its international debut with an HD-2D remake. Not only has this 1994 classic become one of the best-looking games on Switch thanks to its superb graphical upgrade, but the core content shines brighter than ever: it’s one of the most inventive RPGs out there. The genre’s heyday in the 90s, and its unconventional gameplay structure and deep world-building are still worth playing for all genre aficionados.
