Sure, maybe we're trying to ride the Mario 35th Anniversary Direct's momentum and use their hashtags to get attention. And sure, maybe we talk a lot of Mario on this show as it is. But hey, it's Mario. He can do whatever he wants around here.
This week, we're talking about the weirdo of the Mario family, Super Mario Sunshine on the ill-fated Nintendo Gamecube (and the Nintendo Switch next week!) This was the only Mario game I hadn't finished, and based on the feedback we're received, the same applies to a lot of you. Should you finish it? Yeah, but....(listen to the show and see the but is!)
My old buddy Bradley McCue is my guest this week, and while perhaps a little alcohol was consumed, we had some laughs and broke down the good and bad of Super Mario Sunshine.
And first, the fabled Remember The Game? intro! Which includes some Mario 3D All-Stars talk, are all the remakes and remasters coming out these days making the original games obsolete? We also have another fantastic edition of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One' and more!
If you want to skip to something specific, here's where to go:

27:54 - 30:57 What have I been playing?
