009: Super Mario Galaxy

By August 23, 2017PODCAST

We “stay woke” and play Super Mario Galaxy. Moe, Jacob and Michael talk about star bits, the complicated Bowser-Peach relationship and debate who is the greatest Mario brother. “Is this game not for us?” Come back on Wednesday, September 13th for Episode 007 – we are playing through the first half of the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.

Please note: the first half of this podcast was recorded live with a different setup, so the audio quality is not up to our normal standard. The second half sounds better.

Players: Jacob McCourt (@JacobMcCourt), Michael Ruffolo (@ruffolom) and Moe Murtadi (@mmurtadi)
