This week we face the other side of our geekdom as we talk about the grand-daddy of consoles, “Nintendo” with James Newton of “Nintendo Life”. Will we talk about the finer points of the WiiFit? Or how the X-Box 360 even has a Mii like function? Or will we flashback to the days when Duckhunt was thee game to be playing? Or will someone reveal a dark secret involving a Wiimote? Stay tuned for Wednesday’s broadcast to find out!

From the about page of “Nintendo Life” in the author’s own words:

Here at Nintendo Life we’re dedicated to making sure you only experience the very best that Nintendo has to offer. Our crack team of news reporters and reviewers has been hand-picked to form the most solid and dependable group of video game experts available.

Some of us work within the industry and others are merely die-hard gamers doing it for the love of their hobby, but the common principle that unites us all at Nintendo Life is the desire to inform and educate Wii and DS owners about how best to spend their hard earned money.

What makes us unique is that we have a particular emphasis on Nintendo’s downloadable platforms. Sometimes a few lesser Wii / DS titles might not hit our radar, but we have 100% review coverage of WiiWare, DSiWare and Virtual Console. Although we’re based in the UK, we have a truly international team made up from people from all over the globe.

If it’s a history lesson you’re after, then you’ll be interested to learn that the Nintendo Life journey started back in 2006 when the site was launched to coincide with the US release of the Wii. Since then the site has grown considerably and in 2009 Nintendo Life acquired the ever-popular sites WiiWare World and Virtual Console Reviews, and in doing so effectively created one of the biggest Nintendo-centric sites on the internet.
