PixlTalk Episode 80: Wii Unanimous Love

The Wii U is out and the love is free-flowing on this episode of PixlTalk.

After a short hiatus and some failed podcasts post-New York Comic Con, episode 80 has finally come to fruition. And not a moment too late, as the crew for this episode (Nick, Jason, and JD) all have their Deluxe Wii Us and are excited to talk about them.

To kick things off we discuss overall thoughts on the system, the Game Pad, and the onboard applications, like Miiverse and the eShop. Following our breakdown of the system itself discussion jumps straight into the games. Nick's been playing Nintendo Land, while JD has spent some time with ZombiU and Jason has delved deeply into both Epic Mickey 2 and New Super Mario Bros. U.

Whether you've picked up a Wii U or not, you should tune in to this episode of PixlTalk for a glut of Wii U impressions and some candid thoughts on the potential of the system and where it may be headed in the future.

Although I do not own a Wii U [yet!] this was a highly interesting discussion. I'm so glad I looked into these podcasts. I can start one running on my laptop as I drive around. Listen to it as I go from town to town doing X-Ray during the day. And on my iPad at home. Too cool! Great job on this one,too.

Glad to hear you liked it! We need to get PixlTalk up and running again. Things got real crazy after the Wii U came out with family in town for the holidays and then the whole moving bit. Anyway, now that Chessa is done with school and we're getting close to settled in, we'll probably kick off another episode soon, so stay tuned!

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Review

It almost hurts to write that it’s been 13 years since Sega released Banana Blitz back on the Wii. At the time, I know I couldn’t have been more excited that we were about to see a Monkey Ball game that leveraged the motion capabilities of Nintendo’s hit system. However, when it finally released, I wasn’t thrilled with the results. Rather than leveraging the Wii remote in its horizontal orientation, like many other motion-centric games had, it forced you to point forward and contort your arm in awkward ways to tilt the stage. I quickly shelved the game and wrote it off as a failure. I suspect I wasn’t the only one, because after all these years Sega has released an HD remaster of the game leveraging more standard console controls using the analog stick. Unfortunately, the transition has introduced level design changes that bring things to a degree of difficulty that I’ve found to be insurmountable.
