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.
