Are We Any Good at Star Fox 2?


Star Fox 2 is a divisive game. Media outlets tried scoring it, but that was met with much strife over how a cancelled SNES game should be scored in 2017. Let’s put all that aside and actually play the game, shall we? Scott actually makes it way farther than he expected to in this run. Thoughts on the game? Comment below.

Next Classic Edition: Gameboy Vs. N64


We were amazed and surprised by the NES Classic Edition. We were relieved and glad for the SNES. Now… what’s next? Gameboy or Nintendo 64? Time will tell, but Two Button Crew is here to stack up the pros and cons of each and determine which is more likely! Agree? Disagree? Let us know in the comments!

Nintendo’s Making Lots of Excuses


Nintendo, supply, and demand. Three words that don’t always mesh together very well. They’re at it again, this time with the SNES Classic Edition. And when the Public Relations dude at Nintendo seems lost for words, well, the situation must not be pretty. Also, Sonic Forces isn’t shaping up too well on Switch. Unfortunately, a bit of a downer this News week. However, we round things out by talking about the awesome Nintendo World Championships!

So… Let’s try this “Stardew Valley” Thing


Scott’s grandpa just died and left him a farm (Two Button Crew Farm, to be precise) to inherit. After clearing out some dead branches, bushes, and rocks, Scott was ready to plant a few parsnips. But he has no idea what he’s doing, and there’re a bunch of neighbors in the city nearby that he’s yet to meet. Oh, and he hasn’t eaten in 7 days. How will Scott survive? Watch to find out!

Mega Man X – Newb Vs. Pro


In our previous Mega Man Trivia episode, we proved that Simeon is a master of Mega Man knowledge. This video, today, is here to prove that Simeon’s got just as much skill in-game as he does outside. And for your comparison pleasure, we have Scott, who will contrast Simeon’s awesomeness with pure newbishness.

Maga Man Trivia – Can We Stump the Pro?


Simeon is a bit of a Mega Man whiz. He’s a speedrunner and all-around know-it-all when it comes to the Blue Bomber. But can Scott scour the internet for obscure details about the franchise to take Simeon by surprise? Watch and see!

Rise and Fall of Nintendo Power

We’re going to take a break from making NF videos after this one, so make sure to enjoy it and drop a comment!


Before NF, there was NP. Nintendo Power was a long running magazine, originally produced in-house at Nintendo. Over the publication’s many years, it evolved and changed with time as well as with new ownership. Simeon and Scott from Two Button Crew are here today to jog our memories on Nintendo Power’s storied history!

The Final Episode – #600

We don’t want you to overdose on your Nintendose!


#600 – Six hundred episodes later, this chapter of Two Button Crew is coming to a close. It’s been a wonderful ride, and we thank everyone that has supported us over the years. But we’re not going away! No, you can’t get rid of us that easily. Simeon and Scott have a masterful plan to come back with a vengeance. Watch for all the details on why we decided to wind down the daily show, as well as what’s to come. Lastly: thank you for everything.

What Nintendo Has Taught Us

Also we’ve learned to dislike money!


#599 – Nintendo has been around our whole lives, and when we take the time to stop and reflect on it, it turns out: we’ve learned quite a lot from the quirky Japanese game publisher. We knew Nintendo was fun and creative, but also a source of life lessons? Why not! Simeon and Scott have a list, as well as some great additions from Two Button Crew patrons. Thanks, Crew!

PAX 2017 Trip Recap Vlog + Nindies

Got to meet: Peer, Brian, Zach, and even Jose!

In this Vlog you’ll get to see us travel, snag some last-minute Sunday passes, meet IGN staff, sneak into the showfloor while it was closed(!), play some Nindie titles, as well as new Mario & Luigi and Fire Emblem Warriors games!

Pokken Tournament DX Impressions (PAX 2017)

I think I discovered a pattern… this guy always let me win Round 1 and then spanked me!


#597 – Pokken is back! We played the original on Wii U, but now the Switch is receiving a deluxe inversion that includes all the arcade characters, plus a newcomer! Scott challenges a Nintendo rep in this video, so forgive him if he gets spanked. At least you get to see four playable characters in action that weren’t available on the Wii U version!

Mario Odyssey Gameplay + Impressions (PAX 2017)

Yes, it is great.


#596 – Super Mario Odyssey is Nintendo’s next big hit game coming to Switch. We went hands-on and explored the Sand Kingdom. Included in this demo are a few different 8-bit challenge sections, purple coin locations, and an interesting Capture mechanic that involves a big Tiki Head and sunglasses. Enjoy this sneak-peak at Super Mario Odyssey!

Runner3 Gameplay + Impressions (PAX 2017)

Looking REALLY good for a 2018 title!


#595 – Runner3 is the third installment in the Bit.Trip Runner/Runner series, made by Gaijin Games/Choice Provisions. Commander Video has gone through some changes, including receiving the ability to double jump, wall-jump, and more! We went hands-on with a number of different levels and environments, and we gotta say, development seems pretty far along. It’s a really polished indie game. This is a tough one though, so forgive Scott when he dies!

Metroid: Samus Returns Gameplay + Impressions (PAX 2017)

We got a lengthy hands-on with Samus, but you only have to wait a few days to take a copy home yourself!


#594 – Metroid: Samus Returns is almost upon us! Before you take the game home on Friday, take a look at our footage. Don’t worry – we adjust the camera a few times so you can get a closer look. It actually plays really well, and looks so much better in person. The 3D is great, each area is like a little window into the alien planet. And the animation is top-notch. See for yourself!

What Gameboy Games Should be Remade?

Just can’t get over the awesomeness of Samus Returns!


Metroid: Samus Returns is a dream come true. While providing us a new Metroid game, Nintendo is also reusing something from the Gameboy library. GB games are the perfect source for remakes, as many gamers today haven’t tapped into that library, and many of those experiences would be worthy of replaying with a face-lift. We don’t want Samus to be the only one Returning from the Gameboy days, so we’ve made a list of the titles we’d like to see. What did we forget? Let us know in the comments!

Heads-Up: Two Button Crew Edition!

Slightly self-indulgent? Never!


#593 – Buckle up and prepare for some inside jokes! Today we’re playing Heads-Up: Two Button Crew Edition in the app’s Create Your Own Deck mode. Simeon and Scott challenge each other to recall words from Nintendo and TBC lexicons. Can they reach each other’s minds? And more importantly… can you keep up?

Predicting The Final 3DS Games (Before it Dies)

But what we really want is Face Raiders 2, of course.


#592 – 2011 is the year Nintendo 3DS launched, followed quickly by Wii U. Nintendo’s home console floundered and died while their revolutionary portable thrived, building up an amazing catalog of games and huge install base worldwide. Finally, in 2017, it appears that the system is winding down and coming in for a landing. As such, we started to think about what its final games would be, and we’ve made this list for your viewing pleasure!
