PODCAST: Gamers On The Go #34 | Super Smash Bros for 3DS

Gamers on the Go platinum member, Matt Giguere returns to talk about the newest big Nintendo title on the 3DS. We chat about the series’ past, how the new game compares, how we imagine Amiibo working and discuss in a very calm and civilized manner about how the cutting of Lucas is a pure unadulterated travesty (OK, maybe Chase isn’t so calm about it.)


PODCAST: Gamers On The Go #33 | Shovel Knight

Yacht Club Games’ Nick Wozniak and Sean Velasco join Chase to discuss their love letter to Nintendo Entertainment System/Famicom gaming, Shovel Knight

Hear how Yacht Club Games began, how Shovel Knight went from Kickstarter dream to award-winning reality, and how the game might’ve been different it it had just made its original $75,000 goal.

Show Notes:

Learn more about Shovel Knight and grab yourself a copy of the game at shovelknight.com

Shovel Knight is a pretty faithful NES game…except when it’s not. Read this great piece by Yacht Club’s David D'Angelo on Gamasutra about where it made sense to break from the authenticity.

Snag Shovel Knight’s awesome Jake Kaufman-composed soundtrack here. It’s pay what you want!

And keep up with Yacht Club games on their TwitterFacebook, and Twitch pages.


Director of Publishing & PR @Harmonix and Project Lead on @RecordRunJohn Drake comes on to talk about the newest mobile game from the music-minded developer.

John gives us a candid rundown of Harmonix’s history with handhelds, the story behind the timing of releasing Record Run during the Amplitude Kickstarter and definitively restates that no, no one is currently working on Rock Band 4 (yet).

Show Notes:

  • Download Record Run on iOS or Google Play for FREE!
  • VidRhythm is also FREE on iOS.
  • This episode was recorded before the news of Harmonix’s restructuring. Read more about that on Polygon.

Podcast: Gamers On The Go #29 | Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire

Former Bitmob community writer, current Destructoid community writer and fellow pokemaniac Marcel Hoang makes his Gamers on the Go debut to discuss Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire, the beginning of the third generation of Pokemon games and a refresh of the popular series. 

Marcel lends his considerable knowledge about competitive Pokemon play, offering a stark contrast to Chase’s “catch ‘em all” attitude.

Sorry about some of the audio issues present in this episode. There was some echo we just couldn’t quite kill. Also, we tried upping the bitrate a little for this episode. Hopefully, we can put it all together in future episodes.

Show Notes:

  • To read Marcel’s full write up on Ruby & Sapphire’s metagame, you can find it on GamesBeat here.
  • Pokemon commercials are always fun. Watch them all at these three links.

Podcast: Gamers On The Go #26 | SteamWorld Dig

Back from the holidays, we’re starting 2014 right with CEO of Swedish developer Image & Form, Brjann Sigurgeirsson speaking with us about their breakout eShop hit, SteamWorld Dig!

In addition to a fair amount of talk about the mining platforming adventure, we talk about the studio’s early days of “edutainment” games and how they’ve transitioned to original IPs. We also discuss what drew them to developing games for Nintendo handhelds as well as what Image & Form might be up to in the very near future.

Show Notes:

  • While we’re understandably a little biased towards the handheld version of SteamWorld Dig, the Steam version is worth a look and works on Windows, Mac and Linux!
  • To see some of Image & Form’s earlier work, check out their game Anthill on iOS.

Gamers On The Go #23 | Tearaway

Giant Bomb’s Patrick Klepek joins Chase to talk about one of the best (and most interesting) Vita games to come out this year.

In addition to the Tearaway discussion, Patrick and Chase also muse on the future of Nintendo, the potential dangers of PlayStation Plus and talk about some of their favorite handheld games of the year (and Chase accidentally displays some clairvoyance in today’s Smash Bros announcement).

Show Notes:

  • The picture above comes from Chase’s own Tearaway album. Go to Tearaway.me to see some of the amazing stuff people have been making.
  • If you’re still on the fence about Tearaway, you should read Patrick’s review on the game.
  • Near the end of the show, Patrick talks a little about his newest article on blind gamers having an effect on Kickstarter game FREEQ. Read it here.
  • And for more audio-only game goodness, check out Episode 20 of Gamers on the Go about iOS horror game Vanished.

Gamers On The Go #22 | Tetris

While not originally a handheld game, we bend the rules for one of the best-selling and best-loved portable games of all time.

And who do we have on to talk about such an important game? Why it’s returning guest, Pierce Courchaine

We explore the entire Tetris saga, from its creator, Alexey Pajitnov, to the game’s disputed rights and how it finally came to the Nintendo’s consoles. 

We also take a look at the many improvements and no-so-improvements of subsequent Tetris games and declare what we believe to be the definitive Tetris experience. 

Gamers On The Go #21 | Pokemon Gold, Silver & Crystal

Fellow former Bitmob writer and Pokemon master, Matt Polen, joins Chase as we return to our look at the Pokemon franchise, digging this time into the second generation.

The thing is…the new Pokemon X and Y are still pretty fresh in our minds, so the conversation inevitably deviates into that territory time and again. 

Show Notes:

  • Chase mentions a certain video regarding the reveal of Mega Kangaskhan. Maybe you should just take a look…
  • You owe it to yourself to read Matt’s awesome Hunter S. Thompson-esque take on Pokemon’s fiction. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
  • Chase incorrectly credits Matt with writing those Pokemon metagame articles on Bitmob. They were actually by Marcel Hoang. Gen 1 Gen 2 Gen 3 Gen 4 Gen 5
  • Note that our impressions of X and Y are still pretty early despite each of us having crossed the 70-hour mark. Some of our statements are wrong and some of our issues actually have solutions (like Chase’s issue with foreign Pokemon names. As long as they weren’t given nicknames, the names will revert to English when the Pokemon evolves.) 

Gamers On The Go #17 | Rymdkapsel

This episode we get all minimalistic with Rymdkapsel’s Swedish designer, Martin Jonasson (and we don’t mention meatballs even once!)

We chat about what it takes to develop a game by yourself, how Rymdkapsel became a PlayStation Mobile title and how best to sneak t-shirts through international customs.

Make sure you grab a copy of Rymdkapsel on the PS Mobile store (part of PSN), the iOS App Store or Android via Google Play.

And if you’re going to PAX in Seattle this weekend, go visit Martin and play Rymdkapsel yourself at the Indie Megabooth!


  • You gotta check out one of Martin’s previous games, Glorg: a one-button, Flash-based dungeon crawler. It’s fantastic.
  • If you like the music in the credits of the episode, it’s a part of Rymdkapsel’s soundtrack: an awesome 15-minute single that available on Bandcamp.
  • Martin was even nice enough to provide us some codes to give away to GOTG listeners. Make sure you redeem them through this link. Grab ‘em while they last!

World 8 Podcast host and proud member of KC SRKAJ Hurst, returns to GOTG to talk about one of the true classics of the Game Boy: Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.

Tune in to hear what SML2 has in common with Animal Crossing, how Wario became the face of Nintendo on handhelds, and listen to our random discussion of why handheld fighting games are terrible.
