IGN's Nintendo show returns with a pair of special guests from the far east! Host Jose Otero and Peer Schneider are joined by John Ricciardi and Mark MacDonald -- Both are former members of the press who work at 8-4 LTD, a company that specializes in localization and promotion of video games. The crew kicks off the show with a discussion about Nintendo's hip social app Miitomo and Pokemon's big sales milestone.

After the break, the crew takes a deep dive into history and resurrects an old IGN column called Hyrule Times as a special segment for NVC. Join Jose, Peer, Mark and John as they recall video games of the late '90s and the road to Nintendo's epic N64 masterpiece, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. We'll be recording more focused episodes as part of this Hyrule Times series. Some will hone our conversations on individual games, while others will focus on new information about the next Legend of Zelda as it is revealed by Nintendo.

I sat and enjoyed the whole podcast and at the veeeeeery end they had to pander to the female Link meme. Seriously, why even bring it up?

No one was pandering to a female Link meme, shredhead. :) John shared his opinion and we supported him on it. I think it's silly that some people can't take the idea of Link as a female. We're clearly open to it, but it's not the end of the world when it comes up in conversation. You're entitled to whatever you believe, but don't call it pandering.

Great episode, two of my favorite podcasts coming together.

It was great to hear Mark and John reminisce about the good old days, first with Jeff Gerstmann and now with Peer. Always interesting to hear those stories.

I adore Peer. I'm really grateful he makes time for the show.

Only person talking about a meme here is you. :) I said (and I meant) that I would love it if Link were a female in the new Zelda. Or if the player at least had a choice. A female Link would be badass IMO!

Thanks for listening!

Just started listening to the episode, but the mention of EGM's Hyrule Times had me flashing back like the food critic at the end of Ratatouille. That issue of EGM was an all-time great.

Thanks for listening. Just to clarify: IGN wrote Hyrule Times. EGM wrote Hyrule Tattler in the December 1998 issue. It was great.
