Recap of The Game Awards!
Welcome to the latest episode of the Pure Nintendo Podcast. We kick things off with our usual amiibo update. In this week's exciting round, both Roger and Jemma have new amiibo to show off.We were away last week, so this bumper show has a lot of news and games to cover. Fristly, we delve into the recent Game Awards winners, which highlight some interesting Nintendo titles. Is it surprising that Tears of the Kingdom won Most Antipated game?Jemma and Roger also talk about the latest Mario Movie trailers. Two more dropped recently, and we're both more excited than ever to see the movie when it comes out in April (arguably, Jemma was always this excited about it). The trailers give us a great glimpse into the Mushroom Kingdom, along with a closer look at characters like Donkey Kong, Luigi, and Princess Peach. Go Fire Peach!A new wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tracks dropped recently and we discuss these in detail. This batch is our favorite to date, with a Christmas-themed track that makes us smile. Which is your favorite track?Next we chat about the games we've been playing lately. We're loving our indie games at the moment, with quirky, fun titles like Inscryption, Buddy Simulator 1984, and Once Upon a Jester providing weirdness, cereepiness, and laughs respectively. There's a lot to love when it comes to indie games, and there's so much more to look forward to in 2023. We talk about a couple of other titles on our upcoming holiday playlist.Before we wrap up this episode, we tease our final show for the year. Next week we'll invite other Pure Nintendo team members onto the show to talk about our top games of the year.
