There are tons of gaming enthusiast podcasts out in the wild, but almost none of the top-tier podcasts are made specifically for Nintendo fans. That's where we come in! We here at Gamnesia are bringing you a new episode of "Nintendo Week," a podcast made for Nintendo fans by Nintendo fans.

As always, we break down the most recent week of news, including a new Pushmo game and some Fire Emblem news, thoughts on the 3DS' upcoming games (or possibly lack thereof), but perhaps most importantly, a ton of information about the NX and very vivid hints about what it entails. After the news, we go over some major Nintendo games that we haven't played—none of us know what's on each others' lists, so we're well prepared to shame the crap out of each other.

Virtual reality has been resurging heavily in the past few years. Oculus VR, Sony, Microsoft, and many more are all looking to grab a share of the market while there’s a chance. However, is there a place for VR gaming right now? Two of our writers go head-to-head to find out!

We're back with another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every Monday we pit two video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes.

A lot of information was revealed, so whether you missed any of it or just want a closer look, we're breaking it all down, both the good and the bad, right here! Click below to check it out.

As always, we break down the most recent week of news, including a Splatoon Direct, Amiibo supply news, and of course the most successful Kickstarter game in history: Yooka-Laylee. Afterwards, the three of us discuss our most favorite Nintendo characters! Head inside to give it a listen, have a few laughs, and think about this week in Nintendo!

Augmented reality and virtual reality are two of the hottest topics in the video game industry now, and many key players in the market are gearing up to launch devices that make use of these technologies. Of course, as with any new tech, it will be a long time before these devices really reach their potential, and price tags are high.

An Oculus Rift development kit (not the final product) costs $350 and Project Morpheus' price will be based on the console market, and both of these headsets require additional hardware to function. Meanwhile, HoloLens can function independently, but it is expected to cost significantly more than a console. With these devices still relatively unproven, how much would you be willing to pay for one? Hit the jump to join the discussion!

Over the past few years, Kickstarter has become a major factor in the video game industry. With the help of the crowd-funding program, many indie teams have been able to fund their games without working under a publisher. Recently, we've seen Yooka-Laylee receive incredible support through Kickstarter, and other games like Mighty No. 9 have also done well.

However, Kickstarter (and similar ventures) have also been in the center of controversy. Many developers accept donations and then never finish their games, or they release a final product that doesn't meet expectations. Overall, what do you think of Kickstarter? Has its emergence been a positive or negative force in the video game industry? Click below to join the discussion!
