It was a brave move on the part of Nintendo to launch the GameCube without a Mario game. Instead, Mario’s younger sibling took the spotlight in a new series Luigi’s Mansion. It was six years after Super Mario 64 was released that Nintendo gave us Super Mario Sunshine. This week, we take a look back on Mario’s summer getaway, but before we talk about the beautiful tropical island of Delfino and the silver brush-wielding Mario, we have a full report on PAX Prime. Shovel Knight, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Runbow and Oddworld are just some of the many other games we discuss. It’s a crowded house this week as PopOptiq writers Patrick Murphy and Ryan Kapioski join us.
