Embassy Exclusive 57: Family-Friendly Sprites

Ed, Joe, and Todd discuss Nintendo Direct excitement, Kid-Friendly gaming, and favorite retro artwork.

With the ghost of the former E3 season fading behind them, a few bastions of gaming remain in June – most prominently is a content-packed and exciting Nintendo Direct! We start off the show with Ed, Joe, and Todd reviewing the featured games and dishing on which titles we’re most anticipating. Joe’s interested in discussing kid-friendly games and which titles we like sharing with the younger members of our families. Last up, Ed’s talking art! Which 8-bit player sprite is your favorite of all time? The boys chime in, and we get a ton of opinions from our listeners too. Did yours get mentioned? Listen in to find out!
