Nintendo Times Radio 36: Games Have Advanced

A warm welcome to everyone! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to listen to our podcast about video games. This week our Feature Presentation dives into the world of the Game Boy Advance. We talk about its history, all of its accessories, and our favorite 10 GBA games of all time! Do your favorites make the cut?

But first, we chat about what we’ve been playing in our Gaming Update section. As usual, James stays far away from anything Nintendo and has been putting some time into Quantum Break and Quake Champions. Both Ben and Craig talk about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – a fantastic game to have for the Switch. Finally, Craig give his impressions on the new Hot Wheels expansion for Forza Horizon 3.

Of course we cover some of the latest headlines as well! Enjoy the show.

Show Notes:

Nintendo Times Radio is a podcast covering the entire spectrum of the video game universe. Unlike the site, we often discuss games and topics unrelated to Nintendo. In other words, even if you’re not the biggest Nintendo fan out there, we hope you’ll find some value in our conversations and topics. Here’s what’s in store for this episode:
