Episode 317: Bioware Beware

April 14, 2019

Wyatt and Mitchell get together this week to discuss Dragon Ball, Jason Schreier's coverage of Anthem's development, a Power Rangers fighting game, and much more! Is Nintendo's attempt at VR worth talking about? Is competitive Melee sick as in "Righteous, bruh!" or sick as in "has an illness"?

All of this and more on this week's episode of the Super Jump Podcast!!

Episode 316: The Future of Gaming! … Maybe

April 4, 2019

Mitchell is joined by Daryl Baxter, a freelance writer and fellow podcaster, to talk about some very para-exciting developments! Apple is launching a new premium game subscription service, Google is premiering a streaming platform that may very possibly be the first one to truly "work," and Nintendo and Sony both made some announcements of their own. Will these reveals have the industry-shaking effect that they seem to have, or will they come and go only to make room for the next Future of Gaming? All that and more in this week's Super Jump Podcast!!

Midjump: Pokémon Announcements Galore!

Midjump: Pokémon Announcements Galore!

March 7, 2019

You know the drill. When big Pokémon news happens, we bring Jeff Onan on the show to talk with Mitchell about it. This time, we got new trailers for two distinct Pokémon movies releasing before the end of the year. Can you believe we're getting two in one year? By the time both of these come out, there will be a total of 23 theatrical Pokémon films. That's wild. Also, we of course need to talk about Pokémon Sword and Shield. Are they the big, exciting, console Pokémon games we've been waiting for? Find out all that and more on this week's Super Jump Podcast.

Episode 314: Nintendo Enjoyment and Blizzard Unemployment

Episode 314: Nintendo Enjoyment and Blizzard Unemployment

February 22, 2019

For our Pi episode, we talk about the recent Activision Blizzard layoffs and Nintendo Direct!

Mitchell's still playing through Dragon Quest III and Wyatt's still playing Apex Legends. Additionally, both folks tried out the new Nintendo free-to-play battle royale, Tetris 99! That sentence has so many parts that don't make any sense. Nintendo has a battle royale? And it's Tetris? What's next, puppies for dead people?! Why would they even need puppies? It seems like a poorly thought-out arrangement, but Tetris 99 isn't! Seriously, these blurbs are getting harder to write every week.

Episode 313: Apex Legends Got Me Quakin’

February 14, 2019

Mitchell and Wyatt talk up that new hotness, Apex Legends. How good was that stealth reveal? Also, Blizzard is having a bit of an issue at the moment (this episode was recorded before the layoffs). What does it mean for the company's future? Finally, should the term we use for immediately releasing a game after its reveal be "shadow dropping" or "throwing a Beyoncé"? We think both terms have merit.

Episode 312: Metroid’s Getting a Makeover

February 7, 2019

Mitchell and James are absolutely floored by a recent Nintendo announcement. Frankly, we didn’t think being open about that kind of thing in the video game industry was something you could do. Additionally, Mitchell started playing Kingdom Hearts IIIwithout first experiencing any of the other Kingdom Hearts games in any way whatsoever. It goes about as expected. James has been playing the Resident Evil 2 remake and he’s been desperately trying to finish Persona 5 — it never ends!

Finally, some staggering sales numbers have just come come to light and they blew us away.

Episode 311: Freedom, Fortnite, and a Fatality

Episode 311: Freedom, Fortnite, and a Fatality

January 24, 2019

After a brief hiatus, we returned to some big news: Bungie has wrestled control of Destiny away from Activision, EA decided to cancel EA Vancouver’s open world Star Wars game, and Netflix is apparently worried about Fortnite capturing everyone’s screen time.

Oh, and we somehow managed to discuss Breath of the Wild yet again, but don’t despair: Mitchell details his thoughts on his very first experience with Dragon Quest (an absolute must-listen), and James shares a few tales from his recent trip to Japan! 

You’ll hear all that and more on this week’s Super Jump Podcast!

Episode 310: A Preview of 2019

Episode 310: A Preview of 2019

January 3, 2019

With that old, smelly, ghost of a year called "2018" out of the way, we can focus on her younger, sexier sister, 2019. Man, I hated writing that sentence. It's terrible. I started by calling a year a ghost, and does that just mean that it's over? What am I really meaning by saying that? Is it an insult to call a year a ghost? And that whole thing about transitioning over to another year because it's younger and sexier? That's not me; I don't know where that came from. I don't like it. Wow, 2019 sucks already.

Anyway, Wyatt and Mitchell are still playing loads of Smash Bros., someone started a fight in the Smash community, and we each have a few predictions for how 2019 is going to go. All that and more on this week's Super Jump Podcast!!
