The Joy of Gaming Podcast, Episode 64:

Nintendo 64 Retrospective and Kingdom Hearts

On this, the 64th episode of The Joy of Gaming Podcast, we (Rich and Jordan) take this ideal opportunity to discuss the Nintendo 64 console in all of its glory (and infamy). From Nintendo's seemingly-stubborn decision to stick with game cartridges in the age of CD-ROM, to the controversial controller design, to the many groundbreaking and genre-defining titles that were released in its lifespan - we discuss all aspects of the platform that brought us Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Goldeneye: 007, and so much more. 

But first, we keep our feet firmly planted in the present to talk about the latest gaming news (Pokemon GO Fest, anyone?), as well as the games we've been playing recently. Our conversation includes: Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix and Chain of Memories, Splatoon 2, Life is Strange, Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy, Final Fantasy XIV, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and more. We also discuss the newest Telltale Games announcements, and if you're a fan of Dark Knights and Big Bad Wolves, you will probably be pleased. We certainly were. 

So join us, as we discuss a simpler time in gaming's past - when controllers had one (incredibly uncomfortable) analog stick, shooters had four-player split-screen, and CA-CA-CA-Combo-Breakers were the order of the day. This...is the Joy of Gaming!
