Hardline 016: Mario Golf, Watch Dogs, and Game Boy’s 25th birthday

A laid-back discussion of this week in gaming

Recommended Videos

This week, Hardline went into dangerous territory with a five-person show. It wasn’t a disaster, but it sure could’ve been! (Well, it was, but for different reasons. Kidding. A little.)

Hamza Aziz, Steven Hansen, Dale North, and Brett Makedonski joined me to cover big stories of the past few days, like the PS Vita upping its PSP/PS1 game compatibility (temporarily, it turns out), what’s new with Watch Dogs, and the Game Boy turning 25.

When we weren’t being derailed by mysterious vacuum cleaner and hissing noises, we talked about Nintendo getting into season passes with Mario Golf: World Tour and how Dale has never bought downloadable content before, our thoughts on open-world games trying to do too much, and why we just can’t get enough of speedruns.

This is the part where I’d link you to the audio-only version of this episode, but that’s held up by some pending issues. It’s YouTube only this week. Sorry!
