We asked for your email, and you delivered. So of course, rather than getting into meaningful topics we decided to answer questions like "Why is Mario?" Why? We're idiots. Besides existential Mario, this week we: provide an update on the state of Nintendo's mobile offerings, ruminate on the cost of children (and Switch), add Koei Tecmo to Smash, and games that needed a sequel to fix their issues.

We did save a little time for some New Business. None of us have made it to Fire Emblem yet, so instead we give some thoughts on The Hero's arrival in Smash, R-Type Dimensions EX, and Judgment.

Next week we'll be taking a mini-vacation. We'll return with a new episode on August 18. In the meantime, our next Patreon episode should be releasing around the same time.

If you're somehow looking for a game to play to fill the void, well then good news: it's time for the next RetroActive! The 3DS is now retro, so we're going to be doing a RetroActive on Crimson Shroud. We'll be recording it on August 22, but it's a very short game so that's plenty of time. You can participate by posting your comments in our forums or sending us an email. Comments posted may find their way into the show.

James getting upset about Miitomo was the funniest thing I have heard on the show in a long time.

I miss Miitomo.

The idea of joy con drift insanity effects is genius.

Also Crimson Shows should make a great retroactive, look forward to playing it for the first time.

Lu Bu is in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends which is on Switch, for what it's worth.

I'm going to skip playing Crimson Shroud, it's really not the kind of RPG I like.
You should have picked the other Guild game, Liberation Maiden.

It will be interesting to have more 3DS retroactives in the future. I suggest Ever Oasis, it is an RPG that I liked very much.

Honestly Miitomo was probably my favorite out of Nintendo's mobile games.

I played through eternal darkness a few months ago again. The controls are rough for modern standards but come on James. Unplayable? Lol. Gesh guys. The game was still awesome! Nothing like it on the cube. Rough for sure even at launch but unplayable? Lol hardly.
