Weekend NintyBeats – Kickstarted Platforming Goodness

The music of Nintendo games make them truly remarkable and memorable. To show our love of the music, every Friday we share a selection of tracks from various Nintendo titles, new and old.

With Yooka-Laylee shaping up pretty nicely (as you can see from the most recent trailer), it reminds me of other Kickstarters I have backed which are also in the Banjo-Kazooie spirit. So this week’s NintyBeats will focus on just that. Be prepared to be blown away by tracks from Yooka-Laylee and two other Kickstarted platformers, plus an exclusive (almost) reveal… after the break!

LoboCast Episode 4 Is Now Live!

For those of you who haven’t heard, LoboCast is a series of Podcasts created by the wonderful people from LeftHanded Games, who are currently responsible for the upcoming 3D platformer Lobodestroyo, which will be releasing on the Nintendo Wii U… as well as some other consoles including the Ouya and PC/Mac. Check out the first episode here!

Episode 4 features a special guest star, the holy overlord of the StartSelect Network [the site which hosts the LoboCast], Adam Jones, where we find out that maybe it really is about who you know! The gang also goes down nostalgia lane discussing some IPs which they think deserve an overdue reboot or sequel, such as F-Zero and Viewful Joe! Finally, the Better Know A Backer segment returns, last week their victim was your’s truly [ME!] where I was apparently a British George Takei, and this week they prey on the unsuspecting Photon, with a very inaccurate accent [unless he actually is a Snake Oil Salesman who thinks he is a Japanese schoolgirl]! Remember, this segment is all for fun, nothing serious… heck I nearly pissed myself this week!

LoboCast Episode 4: Vice President Croosh Boondicoot!

Like the last episode, the game is family friendly, the podcast… not so much! Enjoy!

Rise of the LoboCast!

For those of you who haven’t heard, Lobodestroyo is a brand new title from indie developer studio, LeftHanded Games, which was successfully funded using the crowd funding website Kickstarter. It will be released on various consoles, including the Nintendo Wii U. As the Kickstarter page states, Lobodestroyo is ‘a retro action adventure game inspired by N64-era collect-a-thon platformers. Channeling the spirit of Rareware’s late 90’s titles.’ For more info on the game, click here!

Now back to why this article is all about. Recently, the wonderful people from LeftHanded games has started to upload a series of monthly podcasts, which are hosted by the StartSelect network. Within these podcasts, James, the creative director of Lobo, is joined with another member of the LeftHanded team to announce updates, answer viewer questions, tell stories and much more. This is appropriately named a LoboCast.

Their first episode was published earlier this week, so why not check them out. Though the actual game is built to be family friendly, the series of podcasts isn’t… you have been warned!
