Podcast: Nintendo Fanboy Special

Mario! Zelda! Mario Kart! Animal Leader!

Hello! This week, the newly themed Eurogamer Podcast - the 92nd, if you're still counting - focuses on all things Nintendo. We gather our four soppiest Nintendo fanboys to celebrate the release of the Kyoto company's three best games in years.

Our four shameless boy-men are: Oli Welsh (that's me), Martin Robinson, Tom Phillips and Christian Donlan. And the games they're here to discuss are, of course, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7.

Debate covers the charms of Skyward Sword's Fi and whether Link is bit too much of a tart, whether Mario Kart is any fun in single-player (poor Tom P kind of walks into this one) and how Super Mario 3D Land is Nintendo's Avatar. In a good way.

Naturally, we also get carried away with ourselves and end up talking about past favourites like Pikmin, Wind Waker and WarioWare and speculating what Wii U can possibly launch with, and whether we'll ever see a new gaming series from Nintendo again (yes, apparently).

Background reading:

The Podcast is published at 5pm each Tuesday. More or less.

Oli is the editor of and likes to take things one word at a time. His friends call him The European, but that's just a coincidence. He's still playing Diablo 3.
