Nintendo Times Radio 62: The Death Of The Virtual Console

We finally get around to revealing our Top 5 Dreamcast games! Thanks to the magic of editing, we also talk about the history of the system and our experiences with Sega’s last piece of hardware.

But first, we dive into a bunch of games and give our impressions on Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Death Road To Canada, and Raging Justice. We also have a lengthy discussion about Nintendo Switch Online and the death of the Virtual Console. We’re also heading into E3 time, so hit us up with your E3 predictions!



Don’t forget to send us your questions and suggestions to be featured on a future show via an e-mail or by getting in touch with us via Twitter. As always, please rate us in iTunes, and you can listen to us on Google Play Music!


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:
