GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Last week's video content from GoNintendo

Time to get some rest! I've been extra tired lately. I think allergies are getting to me. I'm going to head right to bed after tonight's post. At least, that's the plan! See you all in a few, short hours.

We're going to be pretty light on video content for the next two weeks. I'll be taking my regular family vacation, so I won't have my equipment to record features. I might be able to do podcast videos, depending on when I plan out the show. We'll definitely have our regular podcasts, but I'm not sure when/where. I'll figure it out as I go along, but for now let's look back at last week's video content!

First up, my parents sat down for yet another game challenge. This time they played a bit of Golden Axe. I'm not going to lie...this video has probably the saddest ending of the entire series so far. It's still a gem overall, but I can't help but feel bad about how things ended!

We also had our usual podcast video. We talked about our big deal with Nicalis, as well as all the other Nintendo news of the week. We shared your replies to our Twitter question, talked about what we played and did our usual music trivia. A pretty great show overall. We even kicked things off with some off-screen LEGO Jurassic World footage!
