Or you can hit the jump to watch or listen to today’s episode right here on MoeGamer.

In this episode, we kick off with some news happenings from over the course of the last three weeks or so and what we’ve thought about them. Had we recorded just a teensy bit later, we’d have almost certainly brought up a few things like the Ys IX announcement, but oh well; we’ll have to save them for next time.

We follow this up with a discussion of what we’ve been playing recently; it’s mostly been Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but there are a few other little gems in there you might want to find out more about.

And we conclude with a discussion of the lost art of 3D mascot platformers — the beloved genre of the N64 era, and a type of game we don’t tend to see all that often these days. We discuss everything from Banjo-Kazooie to a Treasure game for PS2 I can just refer to as “the one with the tits” and many people will know exactly what I’m talking about.

We hope you enjoy the show. We have a bunch of potential future topics lined up for discussion, but do please feel free to get in touch if you have some ideas for things you’d like to hear us talk about!

Thanks for reading; I hope you enjoyed this article.
