Lewis Pugh is a game developer at Leuvsion ( for mobile platforms, born and bred on Nintendo gaming. Being a developer gives Lewis a unique perspective on Nintendo news, especially relating to the eShop and Nintendo Network. Today he plays Wii U and 3DS enjoying their distinctive gameplay offerings. Looking into what the future holds for Nintendo is always tricky, even with its established heritage, but that’s exactly what makes it so fun. NNID: Leuvsion


  1. Good episode. I’m obviously one that calls for Iwata to go, and I’m not sure why there’s much to think about. The Wii U is a punchline in the gaming community, and an entire generation has been lost to mobile gaming and/or Sony & MS. Again, what’s the use of having all this great IP if it’s not used? What are they working on?

    Just one example, but they aren’t creating any new Metroid fans. No “young” gamer cares about that series. It’s unacceptable. They can’t live off gamers who grew up in the 80s and 90s forever.

    Since you’re podcasters, I’d be curious on your thoughts on the Engadget podcast from Friday (episode 397) in which gaming consoles are discussed at length. They’re complimentary of Nintendo, but when talking about console wars it’s strictly Sony/MS. It’s not just Engadget – it’s the world that thinks this way. It’s like Nintendo is a sideshow.

    But they also have some interesting thoughts on the market in general, as well as the bundled Kinect failure.

  2. Also, I won’t do any spoiler alerts, but you’ve got a ways to go in Bravely Default. I’d wait until you saw a few of the plot twists before judging the story. If you don’t like the dialogue, just keep hitting A to speed it up.

    But I think the conversation would be more interesting if you talked about which jobs you like best, or which abilities. I still like the black mage a lot, even though most sites seem to think it’s a waste late in the game. But my mage, really an arcanist with mage ability, ruled all the way through the final boss.

    For offense, Pirate is awesome. But I typically made the a support ability and took something with higher defense as my actual job. But I favor high defense above anything.

  3. I’m sure I’ve played every MK. Maybe not all the arcade ones, but when I’ve seen them I’ve played them.

    Double dash was one of my favourites. I have 3 nephew-in-laws and I played them for hours and many days when I had that game.

    I want not interested in buying MK7 for the 3DS until last night when I played the MK8 demo on the WII U at GameStop. The flying adds a much appreciated dynamic and may be a good way for Nintendo to branch the game into a flying only edition.

    It would be so nice if I could play every past level on the WII U edition. Maybe even make id DLC.
