We’re back live on location! This time, Ben and Mark record at the local establishment: Barley Brothers. While streaming part of the podcast on Meerkat, we talk about Ikea, Top Gear, the Apple Watch (again) the end of Internet Explorer, and we reminisce about our old Mario and Nintendo nostalgia. We also speculate about the payment models that the new Nintendo mobile games will use. Ben describes Japanese teaching and learning styles and how they translates into web design and game design today in the form of kishotenketsu.
Grab a game controller and a beer (or root beer – Ben) and get ready, because this one is full of Nintendo goodness!
