ENintendo had a lot to say last week, and the team dives into that on the GamesBeat Decide podcast. On this week's episode, reviews editor Mike Minotti gives World of Warcraft Classic the full seal of approval and PC gaming editor Jeff Grubb is digging Control as well as Super Nintendo games on Switch. In the news, Nintendo steals the spotlight with a jam-packed Nintendo Direct. Overwatch, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Return of the Obra Din, and Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition are all coming to the Switch. So are some classic Star Wars games and Divinity Original Sin 2 with cross-save support with the Steam version. And Deadly Premonition 2 is happening and so is a free-to-play Kirby game. Oh, and then Terry from Fatal Fury is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and then that game got a separate mini Direct right after the main show. It's a lot. In other news, we have a better idea of what the next Resident Evil game is. The new Plants vs. Zombies game is out ... or is it? And then more Nintendo with its weird yoga thing.

124: 1,000-MINUTE WOW QUEUES

GamesBeat Decides is back once again to make the world of video games so simple that even a child could understand. Children, however, should not listen to this show because it features grown man and GamesBeat review editor Mike Minotti cursing god for not letting him onto a server to play World of Warcraft. He is still playing Fire Emblem, though -- as well as Bloodstained and Overwatch. PC gaming editor Jeff Grubb, meanwhile, is ready to talk about Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, which he admits most people won't like even though he is infatuated with it. Join us, won't you? In the news, the crew talks about Stadia, Gamescom, and Nintendo's Indie World. That includes tidbits about Kerbal Space Program 2 and the first real Civilizaiton competitor in Humankind. And then Jeff and Mike try to figure out if Geoff Keighley is still Hideo Kojima's best friend based on his appearance in Death Stranding. In other news stories, World of Warcraft Classic is having a massive launch. Mike somehow works through the pain to speak to that. And then the Persona series has hit a new milestone, Sony acquires Insomniac, and is PlayStation going to save the Uncharted movie? Probably not!

120: IT'S HARD TO ROOT FOR EUGENICS

The summer is still slow for news on the GamesBeat Decides podcast. But on this week's episode, we've got plenty of coverage of the monthly NPD report.

GamesBeat PC gaming editor Jeffrey Grubb is digging the Advance Wars-like Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble. He's also trying to improve his shooter skills with the help of a program called Aim Lab. PC guest post editor Rowan Kaiser joins the show to talk about the comfortable grind of Mortal Kombat 11, the latest update to Oxygen Not Included, and his love for Total War: Three Kingdoms. But reviews editor Mike Minotti provides the big showdown this week with his dueling Switch games: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. According to him, it's no contest.
