Episode 37 - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reactions and Impressions

December 11, 2018

It's finally here! Super Smaaaash Broooss!! This week, Taylor and I take a deep dive to give our reactions to Ultimate - how do we like it so far? Is Spirit Mode cooler than it seemed at first? Who is our favorite newcomer? Does the revamped Classic mode hold up? Is Taylor the only one in the world who actually likes Young Link? Is Andy really going off on Kirby again?

We also take time to talk a little God of War, Celeste, Persona, and Mortal Kombat, give our reactions to the Game Awards, talk about some cool new Zelda-like games shown off this week, and spitball ideas who the next crazy DLC fighter could be. Don't miss out!

Episode 36 - Skyward Sword on the Switch, And Why We Think It WILL Happen!

December 4, 2018

Andy and Taylor are back in action, joined this week by Zelda Dungeon's own Skyward Sword fanatic, Alasyn Eletha to talk... what else, ALL THOSE RUMORS swirling around Skyward Sword! Will they, won't they? How would motion controls work? What other quality of life improvements could Nintendo make? Can flying not suck in the remake?

All this, PLUS we talk Groose in Smash, our impressions of Pokemon Let's Go, what we want to see out of the Game Awards, Darksiders III and it's critical bombing, and more! Make this an episode you don't miss!

Episode 35 - Fun and Shenanigans as We Open the Zelda/Smash Bros. Mailbag

November 28, 2018

What do you get when Andy, Kat, Gooey, and Kevin walk into a bar? Nobody knows for sure, but if I had to bet, it would sound something like The Champions' Cast Episide 35! Taylor is away this week, so Andy recruited some of Zelda Dungeon's finest to bring you the hardest hitting Zelda and Super Smash Bros. questions!

What's the deal with how Nintendo defines echo fighters? Who's the "best Zelda girl"? Which character has no shot of making the Smash roster, but we make a pitch for anyways? How the heck do you pronounce Sahasrahla anyways?? And who decided to scrap Zelda III?? It's all here and more! Join the fun and have some laughs with the gang!

That's not all though, as the Champions' relive some of the revolutions in gaming introduced by Ocarina and reminisce about how fresh its take on music was. Ultimately, the Champions' have a great time celebrating this year's greatest Zelda ever!
