ShockCast Episode 14 – Nintendo Needs to Bow Down to Apple

By Joel Taveras

May 12, 2010

Join in for another exciting edition of the DualShockers ShockCast. In this week’s main topic we discuss Satoru Iwata’s recent claim’s of calling Apple the “future enemies” of Nintendo. Apparently he didn’t get the memo that the iPhone and iPad are very much the enemy right now. We also dive into the topic of whether or not games need to have RPG elements in order to succeed, and that conversation is lead by our in-house RPG guru, Chad Awkerman. Closing out the podcast we discuss all of the major news from this past week (Little Big Planet 2 announced, Steam for Mac hits this week, COD: Black Ops adds 4-player co-op, Final Fantasy IX coming to the PSN). We’re enjoying all of the great feedback from all of you out there, so keep it coming.
