Brett chose to save Space Hitler

Podtoid 364


Brett had the choice to save Space Hitler or to liberate sci-fi Auschwitz. He went with the former. In his defense, he only had a few seconds to make the decision, so you can understand why it might have been tough.

That's one of the topics that came up regarding Mass Effect: Andromeda in this episode of Podtoid. We also talked a bit about how effing great The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the new mode in Rocket League are.

Otherwise, it was the usual romp through topics ranging from corn dogs to scorpions, with a ton of listener questions, SATPOTPAQ, and a Zelda-themed Hot Dish. I told you it'd be back soon! I'm not a bad liar person like that Brett guy, who is a proponent of galactic genocide.

A recap from GDC and PAX East

Podtoid 363


Ooh, this episode is a little late. See, I was on vacation, and the ol' crew decided to up and record an episode without even telling me. You know what that means? No Hot Dish!

Even so, it's worth listening to, probably. I listened to parts of it. Podtoid newcomer Ray Porreca joined Steven Hansen and Brett Makedonski to talk GDC, PAX East, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nier: Automata, and more. My favorite part was when the three of them fumbled through an eighth grade math problem. (In case y'all were wondering, scientist Brett got the correct answer.)

Don't worry, next episode will have a Hot Dish. I promise.

Nintendo hires second sloth at NES Classic factory (Fauxclusive)

by @destructoid

Production moving faster than ever


Following news that Nintendo is ramping up efforts to produce more Switch units, the company also announced it will double the workforce at the facility manufacturing the NES Classic by hiring a second sloth.

The sloth, named Màn, is set to join the only other employee in the factory, Bǐjiào màn, another sloth who has been unable to meet the global demand for the hot-ticket item.

“After many meetings with the higher-ups, we’ve come to realize we’ll never satisfy every fan looking for the NES Classic with just one sloth on the job, especially when that sloth keeps taking three-hour smoking breaks,” company spokesman Kyle Toadsly explained. “That’s why we hired a second sloth. With the two of them at work, we’re fairly confident we’ll be able to sell a Classic to everyone who wants one by the year 2087.”

Toadsly says the company had hoped that one sloth would be able to produce enough units to last long enough for everyone to get over it but says it was caught off-guard by the high demand for classic Nintendo titles that there always has been and always will be high demand for.

“We understand that there are millions of people who only already have three or four copies of these games they’ve bought from Nintendo throughout the years,” Toadsly said. “Trust me when I say it pains us to know that some people can only play Super Mario Bros. on their Wii U, 3DS, Wii Virtual Console, Wii as part of the 25th Anniversary collection, GameCube, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, Super Nintendo, NES, and that copy you downloaded to your computer as a way to stick it to us or something. With two sloths now on the job, know that you are closer than ever to having yet another device to play that classic game on. The device I’m talking about is, of course, the Nintendo Switch, but I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to get a Classic too eventually.”

The Great Retro Quiz! Zelda Results

by @destructoid

How did you do?


Last weekend, in celebration of the newest Legend of Zelda game, I posted a quiz about the series' history, with questions spanning the entire 30 year history of the franchise. Today, the results. This quiz was intentionally more difficult than the last one I did, so let's see who got the best score. I'm sharpening up my red teacher's pen, and...

There's an awful lot of red ink getting all over everything. Probably shouldn't put pens in the pencil sharpener. Whoops. Oh well, let's get to it.

The Great Retro Quiz Reboot: The Legend of Zelda

by @destructoid

Thirty years of trivia


Merry Switchmas! Like many of you, I've spent the last couple of days exploring the various nooks and crannies of Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I've really been enjoying how I can take the game with me into any room in the house, but then again, I was one of those weirdos who would play the Wii U in bed from time to time.

Anyway, the whole world is diving into a Zelda title right now, which makes this the perfect time to put up a retro quiz about the series! Now, Chad did cover The Legend of Zelda in a retro quiz back in 2007, but his quiz only covered the original game. This one will take a look at the entire 30 year history of the franchise. 

What would a quiz be without prizes? I have some options for our eventual winner this time. Whoever gets the most questions correct will get a code for their choice of the following: Drive!Drive!Drive! (PS4), Nights of Azure (Steam) or Altelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book (Steam). You can leave your answers in the comments below, and we'll leave it open until 12:01 AM Pacific time on March 12. If there's a tie, whoever gets their answers posted first will be the winner. When you're writing your answers in the comments, be sure to mention which prize you'd like. Official rules follow the end of the quiz. Let's get started!
