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.

A month away from the mic has not stopped our flow of guests, as Chris's brother Tyrone Selby joins us for a Unicron-sized discussion (Sorry not sorry) of the various TV incarnations of the Transformers franchise, though John's current obsession means that we spend time singing the praises of Injustice 2 first, including observations on Harley Quinn and her Tara Strong-ified face, along with a little more Breath of the Wild talk.

Once we tackle our main topic, we attempt to discuss every major series from Beast Wars onwards (Don't blame us for skipping G1, we were born too late), taking the time to praise two particular series, shrug over several others, and marvel at the mind-boggling ineptitude of one in particular. Expect discussion on weird fan Wikis, Decepti-nipples, moms who love Optimus, and surprise Ernie Hudsons.
