That's right. We're back.
Ben, Caleb, Joey and waka reunite to kick off and share the excitement for 2017. On this week's episode:
- We take a look back to the start of Hot KoCode 3 years ago;
- Take a deep breath and share an in-depth analysis of the Nintendo Switch event;
- Rekindle our collective excitement for what's to come in 2017, and
- ...remind you all that with our grand return comes our mailbag as well!
NOTE: Due to some technical difficulties (read: incredible stupidity on waka's part), waka's microphone sounds absolutely terrible. Joey's editing has saved this episode as well as made sure that your ears won't bleed, and the worst part is the beginning; but keep it mind that it won't sound the best here and there. We're working hard on improving the way Hot KoCode sounds and making sure it's a stellar audio experience—and we're hoping this week will be the one exception to the rule.
Feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at us @HotKoCode. Happy 2017!
We're back once again! Ben, Joey and waka get together one last time before hyping up E3 with the full cast. (i.e. when Caleb stops being a bear) This week we talk about:
- Microsoft's ET excavation success.
- Red Dead Redemption's possible port to Windows.
- The new Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire remakes and their announcement.
- Nintendo's convincing of Mega 64 to do an E3 hype video for them.
- Sony's selling of all Squenix shares.
- Shuhei Yoshida's 'altercations' with Miiverse.
- Oculus Rift's imminent arrival to Chuck E. Cheese, pissing off an entire legion of nerds.
- A ridiculously useless and potentially fake Smash Bros. roster screen leak.
- Plus, some random Nintendo trademark registration discussion, and general 10 year-old nostalgia.
