A Mario-Tastic Nintendo Direct, FFXVI and Game of Thrones, Diablo 4, Lies of P

Welcome back to The MinnMax Show! We are, for the first time, flying without the Ben wind beneath our wings. So if the podcast sounds a little different, that's why - we're still navigating the hosting and technical sides of this transition, and we appreciate your patience! Host Kelsey Lewin is joined by Jacob Geller, Jeff Marchiafava, and Jenna Stoeber to discuss June's sudden Nintendo Direct and the many Mario games that caught their eye, plus Mythforce and Headbangers Rhythm Royale. Jacob and Kelsey delve into the ways Final Fantasy XVI draws from Game of Thrones, while Jeff and Jenna languish praise on the Hellraiser vibes in Diablo 4. And of course we tackle some challenging questions from the audience about cards and characters. As always, you say "jump" we say "how many times has humanity jumped through the span of time?"

The Mind Of Miyamoto

Welcome back to The MinnMax Show! On this week's special episode, Ben Hanson is joined by the co-director of the Video Game History Foundation Kelsey Lewin and Digital Eclipse's Editorial Director Chris Kohler to try to better understand Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto. This isn't an interview with the man, unfortunately. We talk about our experiences interacting with the creator of Donkey Kong, Mario, and The Legend of Zelda and share insightful quotes from interviews he's done throughout the decades. This is inspired by this week's big premiere of the Super Mario Bros. movie from Illumination. Then we answer questions submitted on Patreon by the community and award the iam8bit question of the week!
