In this episode, we talk about Playdead's indie hit Limbo. In this title, players must guide a young boy through a creepy forest, a decayed urban environment, and a dangerous factory on a quest to find his lost sister.

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode, we discuss some big Nintendo news: the New 3DS announcement, Mario Kart 8's awesome DLC, and Super Smash Bros.'s leaked (and possibly confirmed) roster. Is it too early for a new Nintendo handheld? And what's up with that name, anyway? Link and Animal Crossing Villager in Mario Kart? Sixteen new courses? Duck Hunt Dog in Smash? Lots of things. Many opinions. Such news. Wow.

In this episode, we talk about horror in video games.

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode, the Turtle Jumpers take a break from video games and explain why they like--nay, LOVE--Dungeons & Dragons. D&D is the father of role-playing games. Using only pens, paper, dice, and imagination, you can embark on the most fantastic of quests. It's a story that YOU build, with combat, diplomacy, adventuring, and skillful challenges. Wizards of the Coast recently began unleashing the 5th edition of D&D on the world, and so now is the perfect time to jump in.

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode we put on our speculation hats and rouse up some theories about how Nintendo might use amiibo, their new NFC-enabled figurine line set to launch in the fall. We know that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad, and many more titles will take advantage of the figures, and 3DS support will not be far behind. How else might Nintendo exploit the potential of this new product? We offer our thoughts on Pokemon, inter-game functionality, and more.

In this episode, we bring in special guest Andrew DiMarcangelo of the PolyComics podcast to discuss Nintendo's current troubles--their NintendWoes, if you will. Wii U sales have been abysmal, and Nintendo has posted terrible financial losses for the last couple of years. What could they do to turn the game around? What games would help them, and what policies should they change? We ponder these questions and more in hopes to find hope and a solution for the Big N's big problems.
