I worry we're driving Matthew into an existential crisis with this series. What started as a little experiment into how we could utilise his gaming anti-skills for video fun has become a weekly 10 minutes in which he repeatedly yelps about his own death.

ONM Podcast 60 is a bit late, sorry In which Kate realises just what she's gotten into.
First days are meant to be scary, but Kate had to go through a first ONM Podcast too which, if anything, is worse. Between Matthew's garbled, old-timey radio attempts at linking sections, Gav's relentless questioning of her motives and me telling a story about a dying owl I failed to save, it's not so much a trial by fire as one by ultra-magma.

The Legend of Zelda - A link to the past, present and future Alex Jones looks to the Legend to see what the next chapter could be.
The Legend of Zelda is, amongst many other superlative things, perhaps the most appropriately named gaming franchise of all. You know the tale, a young boy with equal measures of naivety and bravery, dons a green tunic and sets out on a quest to save a princess and her kingdom from impending doom. With E3 2014 on the horizon, coming as it does with the promise of a new entry, it seems an appropriate time to take a tour through the chapters which make up one of gaming's most consistently exceptional franchises, as well as taking time to think about what might come next.

10 Z-list Nintendo characters we'd like to see in Smash Bros. Not So Super Smash Bros.
In a Nintendo world dominated by Mario, Link, Samus, Pikachu and Kirby, there's just not a lot of love going around for the company's obscure unsung heroes. Imagine - 4 or 5 years from now - Nintendo refuse to let this injustice persist any longer and proudly announce that the next instalment of their all-star brawler series...completely lacks all-stars. Super Smash Bros. 5 is all about giving the forgotten characters of Nintendo's past another 'well-deserved' shot in the limelight.

Competing in a Pokemon Battle Tournament ONM blogger and resident Pokéxpert, Marti Bennett takes us through what it's like to play a tournament at the top level.
It's fair to say that, recently, I've not had the best of luck with team building in Pokémon. I've been breeding and training loads of Pokémon for a new team for some time but, last week I ended up playing so badly on Battle Spot (Pokémon X & Y's random online battle system) that my ratings have dropped into the 1200s. For those that don't play rated battles, you start at 1500 and gain points for winning - but if you lose those points drop away. As I'm usually in the 1600/1700 area, I wasn't very happy with my latest performance. And then I qualified for a Pokémon Battle Tournament.
