Happy (belated) New Year! A lot has gone on in 2018, including some huge game releases and major life milestones. 2019 won't be any different either, with some highly anticipated titles already having come out and many more to come. Join Steven, Ben, and Will on this episode of Gamnesia After Dark as we discuss both our highlights from last year and what we're looking forward to this coming year!

Nintendo originally launched New Super Mario Bros. U on Wii U (just in case the name didn't give it away), but that platform's lack of success compelled Nintendo to give the platformer new life on Switch. The Deluxe version of the game comes with all DLC, some graphical upgrades, and some new playable characters and items. You can pick up the new and improved version tomorrow, and in the meantime, Nintendo has just released a new trailer to showcase its fun gameplay and newly-acquired portability on Switch.

Happy holidays, everyone! In celebration of the holiday season, we have a very special episode of Switched On! this week. We've been regularly rotating guests on the podcast to introduce you to a variety of Gamnesia staff members, but for this episode, we decided it would be fun to bring back some familiar voices. Longtime listeners know that before Switched On! we had a podcast called Nintendo Week for a few years, and we're excited to announce that this episode is a Nintendo Week reunion! Join the old crew of Ben Lamoreux, Colin McIsaac, and Alex Plant as we break down all of the latest exciting Nintendo news and share our thoughts on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

Pokémon has evolved yet again. Game Freak's beloved monster-catching franchise just took on a new form with the launch of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee. These twin games are essentially remakes of Pokémon Yellow, but with significant gameplay changes inspired by Pokémon GO. So how does the finished product hold up? Join Ben, Elijah, and Tessie as they break down the good and the bad on the latest episode of Switched On!

It's the holiday season, so what better time to take a moment and reflect on some of our fondest memories? Whether holiday or gaming related, or simply just something that happened to you randomly, these memories are near and dear to us all. We here at Gamnesia have our own memories as well, and thus we would like to invite you to join Steven, Mark, and Tessie as they recount some of their favorites as they relate to video games.

E3 has just wrapped up in Los Angeles, and several Gamnesia staff members got the opportunity to peruse the show floor over the past week, trying out upcoming games from numerous developers big and small. We're all pretty exhausted and glad to be back in the comfort of our own homes, but we also had a great time and played a lot of exciting games.

Before ending our trip, we all met up in the hotel one last time to record our impressions from three days on the show floor, including our thoughts from our extensive hands-on time with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at Nintendo's press appointment area. In addition to the excitement of Smash, we share our thoughts on Marvel's Spider-Man, Mega Man 11, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Eevee, and lots more!

Hello everyone!

I'm sad to let you know the time has come to stop expecting weekly episodes from Gamnesia's very own Nintendo Week Podcast. Gamnesia's undergoing some changes behind-the-scenes, and myself, Alex, and Ben have all had a rough year—we just don't have the time and energy we did when we started the show just about two years ago (time flies!).

Head inside to keep reading.

There are tons of gaming podcasts in the wild, but Nintendo Week stands alone as it recaptures all the fun of Nintendo in the form of a weekly show. Every episode brings news recaps, discussions, games, music, and more to create a show for all kinds of Nintendo fans, whether they're new or old, passionate or passing-by.

Join Alex, Ben, and Colin for the first Nintendo Week of 2017, doubled in length as we emerge from our slumber with rusty podcasting skills and much to say about Nintendo Switch and all that surrounds it. We cover everything we learned from the Switch Presentation, including hardware, software, pricing, third-party relations, and so much more, before moving onto what all this tells us about Nintendo's prospective future.

You can check out all this and tons more in the episode after the jump—or if you'd like to save it to listen later, you can check the latest episode out on iTunes, available now. And be sure to head inside to get a rundown of all the Nintendo news from the past week!
