Super NVC: Virtual Console Shenanigans
Welcome back to another (totally weekly again!) edition of Super NVC, IGN’s very own Nintendo-centric podcast. This week we’ve got Audrey “The Audrey” Drake (otherwise known as ME!!), Rich “Sleepy Hat” George, Sam “The Man with the Plan” Claiborn, and Jeremy “Fashion Maven” Parish. What a crew! Now let’s get down to business…
This week we play a bunch of Virtual Console games… on Wii. I know. I know! But the Wii U update wasn’t live when we recorded this on Thursday, so it was the best we could manage. We do discuss Nintendo’s Wii U Virtual Console strategy, though, as well as the company’s decision to forgo a large-scale, live presentation this year.
One more thing – we’re sad to announce that this will be Jeremy Parish’s last NVC podcast. Mr. Parish is leaving IGN to explore other opportunities in the industry (check out his goodbye blog here). He will certainly be missed, so be sure to say goodbye in the comments below! And for those of you who weren’t already aware, since the IGN Nintendo team is now a thing of the past (it’s just me now, folks!), our own Rich George is taking over as head of News and Features here at IGN. So be sure to bug him about news and such whenever possible.
R.I.P. Jeremy. R.I.P. Papa Koopa. Viva la NVC!
Without further ado, here’s the link for if you want to download the MP3 to listen to at the gym. Or at the bank. On a train? Maybe even on a plane. Before takeoff, that is. Don’t go killing yourself for little ole us.
