This year's Electronics Entertainment Expo has come and gone, and we tackle our biggest takeaways from it. John loses his mind over Super Mario Odyssey in a good way, but Hell hath no fury like a Rabbids-fatigued Chris. We also talk upcoming fighting games on the opposite side of the visual quality spectrum, Dad of War, and AwesomeCon.
But since this is unlucky episode number 13, John unleashes a true disaster movie to unpack with Chris, as we dissect the cinematic disaster that is 1993's live-action Super Mario Bros. movie. Discussions include why the film fails both as an adaptation and a standalone piece, what elements of its aesthetics and imagination deserve legitimate credit, and the best way Hollywood could go about doing a possible second attempt at bringing Mario Mario to the big screen again. Strap on your belts, get your plumbing tools, trust the fungus, and do your best John Leguizamo impression - this is a crazy one.
