KoopaTV's Live Reactions to Wil Wheaton Babbling about Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - I think we're done with this game by now.

After advising you that Code Name S.T.E.A.M. probably is not worth your time (unless you reaaaally liked the demo), Nintendo was like, we are going to hold a Twitch event featuring Wil Wheaton who voice-acted Abraham Lincoln.

So we halfheartedly watched it and reacted to it. I'm Nintendork 13 13, Rawk is Rawk, and Vortexica is that breezinabout name.

If you missed the event, you can (re)watch it here. We don't really recommend it. You're not going to want the game if you didn't want it before, and you probably won't care about this if you actually do want it.

    I wonder if this is live-reactable.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:26 pm
    .... 5:31 pm
    I don't know why Wil Wheaton is so associated with video games all of a sudden.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:31 pm
    Because.... I don't know. 5:32 pm
    Or how he even became a voice actor. His fame just seemed to resurge out of nowhere.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:33 pm
    This isn't live-reactable this is boring already

Wil Wheaton Twitch Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Nintendo 3DS videogame
Right about now Wil Wheaton is saying, "You have made a HUGE mistake!" 5:34 pm
    Twitch chat still broken for me I see. It's been like that for years now. <_<

 Nintendork 13 13 5:34 pm
    That's... probably a good thing. 5:34 pm
    You're probably right.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:35 pm
    "greatest American presidents ever"

 Nintendork 13 13 5:36 pm
    "as a gamer" - Wil Wheaton 5:36 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:37 pm
    His VA started two years ago.
    So Intelligent Systems has been working on this since at least 2013.
    ...So 2012.
    wtf he referenced SPM
    It looks nothing like SPM.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:38 pm
    They keep saying "Abraham Lincoln"
    like him alone is a reason to buy the game.
    Wheaton felt "responsibility" to VA Lincoln.
    That it's not "just a game"

 Nintendork 13 13 5:41 pm
    Abraham Lincoln trailer.
    Sooooo obnoxious. 5:42 pm
    This might make you feel better:

 Nintendork 13 13 5:42 pm
    =-O 5:43 pm
    I love that clip. <3

 Nintendork 13 13 5:43 pm
    This Cory dude is the professional player.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:43 pm
    5:56 in.
    Adam Baldwin is also in the voice cast.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:45 pm
    Tom Sawyer has a punch-gun.
    "are you also going up against historical figures?"
    "they're all but they're LOVECRAFTIAN!!" 5:46 pm
    I'LL be the judge of that.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:46 pm
    Tentacle trunk.
    See the problem here...
    ...Is that there is no way to know what the enemies can do before they do it.
    There is no enemy info page or anything.

 RawkHawk2010 5:48 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:48 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:48 pm
    Is this Wheaties

 Nintendork 13 13 5:48 pm
    The game is on-screen right now.
    You missed a lot of his pompous speech already.

 RawkHawk2010 5:50 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:52 pm
    Oh yeah.
    I played on a New 3DS for the first time.
    At Best Buy.
    Majora's Mask 3D, in fact.

 RawkHawk2010 5:52 pm
    How was it.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:52 pm
    .....still can't see the 3D

 RawkHawk2010 5:52 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:52 pm
    The C-stick/button feels weird.
    It doesn't feel responsive.
    It was responding
    but there wasn't satisfactory physical feedback with my finger.

 RawkHawk2010 5:54 pm
    That's a laptop nub for you.

 RawkHawk2010 5:55 pm
    Will y'all be here tomorrow at 11 AM?

 Nintendork 13 13 5:55 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:55 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:55 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:55 pm
    Cuz Ukelele gets revealed then.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:56 pm
    Wheaton being pompous about voice-acting again.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:57 pm
    Tom Sawyer died

 RawkHawk2010 5:57 pm
    This is boring as all fuck.
    Hey, how did Vortex like Harry Potter Dances to Route 216?! 5:58 pm
    Haven't seen it yet.

 RawkHawk2010 5:59 pm
    You should.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:59 pm
    They keep asking Wil questions completely irrelevant to the gameplay on-screen 5:59 pm
    Here it is, in my subs.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:59 pm
    because Lincoln doesn't appear. 6:01 pm
    Lol. What Route 216 theme was that? Can't say I recognised it.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:01 pm
    ...the only game with a route 216.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:02 pm
    Well I guess they acknowledge that Lincoln doesn't care about balance of powers. 6:02 pm
    Oh yeah, that route. I remember now.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:04 pm
    "the big Lincoln moment"
    "Something big is coming." - in-game

 Nintendork 13 13 6:07 pm
    "Anthromorphised Battle Engine, or A.B.E. for short"

 Nintendork 13 13 6:09 pm
    They're acting like having a giant mecha Lincoln is such a unique concept.
    Not even unique for Intelligent Systems!
    Asking amiibo support.
    "Difficulty is really interesting."

 Nintendork 13 13 6:11 pm
    (Then proceeds to not answer the question)
    (or explain)

 RawkHawk2010 6:11 pm
    Wouldn't Maryland have seceded if Lincoln didn't imprison all its lawmakers.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:11 pm

 RawkHawk2010 6:12 pm
    I remember something about that.
    Well, now you have to write an article about how giant mecha Lincoln is stealing giant mecha Bowser's thunder.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:13 pm
    Giant mecha Bowser?

 RawkHawk2010 6:13 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:13 pm
    From Sunshine? >_>;

 RawkHawk2010 6:13 pm
    or that.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:13 pm
    That's not called Giant Mecha Bowser!

 RawkHawk2010 6:14 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 6:14 pm
    I'm not giving the Koopa Bros. credit to say that pile of shit ever had "thunder".
    Corey would've quit Nintendo if he failed the mission on-stream.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:17 pm
    The game has robot penguin mechas.
    (I prefer mecha Koopas.)
    "Abe vs. Abe" mode.
    Multiplayer Abraham Lincoln mecha fights.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:20 pm
    Code Name T.H.E.M.E.
    is the name of the theme song.
    Twitch guy just said voice-acting is equally important
    as other parts.
    Wheaton's last words: "Play more games and don't be a dick."

 RawkHawk2010 6:22 pm
    Are they talking about morality now?

 Nintendork 13 13 6:22 pm
    No it ended.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:22 pm
    That's why I said "last words"

 RawkHawk2010 6:22 pm
    Wheaton's last words

 Nintendork 13 13 6:22 pm

 RawkHawk2010 6:22 pm
    Other dudes could have still been talking

 Nintendork 13 13 6:22 pm
    Everything after that was
    "The game is out now you can download it at the eShop"

 RawkHawk2010 6:23 pm
    No thanks!

The entire KoopaTV staff is totally disinterested in Code Name S.T.E.A.M.. If you would like our editorials to have positive commentary on it, join our staff yourself or submit a guest post. The latter will get you Loyalty Rewards points to get things like Nintendo eShop credit so you could buy better games instead.

Wil Wheaton thinks voice-actors are some of the most important people in the videogame industry.


  1. On the topic of Codename STEAM, why even include Fire Emblem characters? Nintendo just WANTS us to buy amiibos, don't they?

    1. Yes, and they specifically want you to buy Marth amiibos that are currently impossible to obtain through traditional methods.

      When I think about it, Intelligent Systems PROBABLY doesn't want their niche series amiibo to suffer like other niche series amiibo and sit unwanted. (Though the reality is that they're all sold out anyway.) So it's time to give those niche amiibo AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE AND BE WANTED!

      Oh, I guess I mentioned it off-log, but today I got an amiibo of King Dad. ^_^
