A few with most notable being Retro who would be the big one, and then still not sure how many people would know it's them doing Donkey Kong Country and not Nintendo.

Next Level Games now, as well.

But like you say, once Nintendo does take a company on board they become part of that overarching Nintendo. In terms of quality and style, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Luigi's Mansion 3 sit very comfortably alongside the rest of the library.

I thought about Retro, but nothing they've done since Prime 1 really got me that hyped. I'd take a Prime 2 now, natch.

I heard the The Back Page podcast for the first time, listening to their latest N64 Draft episode part-way through a mammoth Tetrisphere session. I thought it was all right, they’re clearly well-informed presenters with a lot of affinity for old and good gaming journalism.

I’ll never make time for a new one every week, but I know most of you do. Was there any-standout episodes I’ve missed? I know I’ve asked this before but I can’t remember when and where, and if there were any recommendations.

I also listened to this, and despite Matthew having the Nintendo background, I end up agreeing with Samuel more. There was an episode about magazine covers that I found interesting, as far as how they come together, and there are two episodes themed around Matthew being a judge and Samuel is on trial for buying games on Ebay. Usually good fun. Anything to do with modern gaming I largely skip, but that's more to do with my personal tastes.

Anyone who votes for Sam over Matthew is a disgusting piece of normie filth. Thumbs Down... Or maybe it's just that I hated N64 shooters because I couldn't aim. Or both.

I recommended a couple. Can't remember what they were now, or where I recommended them. GJones is right that the Games Court episodes are a lot of fun (even if he's very wrong about other things): Games Court 2 has a truly excellent line about Wario that made me snort with laughter. They review years of games too which are good for the retros, starting with 2007, and there's a fair bit about working in magazines at the time in each which I think you/Cappa would enjoy.

I'd vote Matthew over Sam in the N64 draft, but I missed Goldeneye and PD at the time. I can totally get it from other people though.

I listen all the time, but I also spend a lot more time walking and potentially listening to podcasts than most. The episode titles will tell you which ones are mag-centric, and those are definitely the places to start.

Right, going to tear those down.*. *Your mileage may vary on the amount of tearing done.

Spoiler:
 

In general though, I think my tastes are just so far away from Sam's. He never seems to play anything interesting or colourful apart from the big, mainstream games, and all his draft picks are big and mainstream likewise: even his wildcard was, relatively speaking. That makes them dull for me. See also 2010, when he was ticking off the massive mainstream hitters while Matthew went for Trauma Team and Last Window. They're dull because everyone's played them because they're good, natch, and I think that's probably just the difference between being a BBoP mainliner and a Nintendo one; but it does mean I barely agree with him about anything.

I've got no idea what you're all on about, but I see the spoiler MK64, OoT and Goldeneye along with something about a N64 Mini those surely would need to be on it be like a SNES Mini without Super Mario World or a PS1 Mini without Final Fantasy VII.
