Daydreamcast Ep. 3: Pikmin (2001)

In the new episode of the vanguard Daydreamcast, we take up a new quarantine hobby: gardening of a… special kind! Join us as we discuss the seemingly harmless but immensely fun Pikmin, Nintendo’s original take on a real-time strategy game. We discuss both the Gamecube and the Wii version in detail, focusing on the game’s striking aesthetic, its not-so-daunting time limit, and the value of the almighty Blue Pikmin. Other insights of the episode: Nintendo listens to our podcast, Bloodborne is good (finally someone has figured this out!), and M2 is the supreme caretaker of The Old Games.
