Yet again, Tony and I embark on a journey to spread video game knowledge around the world. Thankfully, the knowledge spreads smooth and creamy like some sort of manufactured cheese. Eww. This week’s show is all about board games, Super Mario Kart and dolphins. Then, the moment has finally arrived. I sit in The Hot Seat and Tony grills me on Metroid games. How will I do? Will I pull a Tony? I can’t tell you now because it will spoil it but I will say this, things don’t go so well. Listen!

I love Gundams. I have them all over my house. I love the first two Battle Assault games. This one however, I do not like. In fact, I think Battle Assault 3 Featuring Gundam Seed is the worst game I have ever played for a Go Round. This game is so bad Will plays his 3DS and Josh plays on his iPhone DURING THE GO ROUND! Ugh, just watch and see for yourself.
Better late than never right? We didn’t want to go two weeks without a podcast but with all the New Year stuff going on, we had a hard time getting a show together. I had a hard time editing it too. Mostly due to Saints Row: The Third. Anyway, two days late, here is episode 97 of the Okie Cast. We recorded in two chunks; one with Tony and myself then one with Tony and Micah. We don’t talk about any news, instead just games we have been playing and we review our 2011 year in review articles that went up all last week. Happy new year, everybody. Let’s hope the world doesn’t come to an end.
Starring – Tony, Micah, Shelby
Run time – 2:15:35

Mario Kart 7 hit stores today and we thought we’d find out what version of the game everyone in the Nintendo Okie community likes. I’ll tell you now that I’m partial to Double Dash. I liked the two racers per kart and it’s got some of my most favorite tracks of all time, including Baby Park, Daisy Cruiser and Wario Colisseum. So, with that in mind, “What Mario Kart game is your favorite?” Don’t forget to leave us a comment and let us know why.
It’s GameCube Week here at Nintendo Okie so the staff is celebrating the life of that system. I’m here today to talk about some of my favorite memories of the GameCube. There are so many different things that I remember about that system, and it actually holds a special place in my life because of the events surrounding it. I’ll talk about some of my favorite games for the system in another article, this one is just to specifically tell you all about some things that happened while I owned the GameCube. I think you’ll find that most of my memories of that system revolve around my family in someway.
I actually didn’t buy a GameCube on launch day. It wasn’t until just after Christmas that I actually was able to get one. I can remember going to Toys ‘R Us with my wife to pick it up. We’d been married just over 9 months at that time and she was 8 months pregnant with our youngest daughter. I bought a black system and picked up a copy of Luigi’s Mansion and Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, both of which are fantastic games that I still play to this day.
