RadioRadar+ Podcast 62: Super Mario Running toward 2017

The Big Topic: Super Mario Run and the state of mobile games
Further Discussion: The games that inspired us
What we’re into: 2016 still has more games!

This is the last RadioRadar+ for 2016, and we're so, so sorry for the Paul McCartney references right out of the gate. But if you stick with today's podcast past that nonsense, you'll find some delightful discussion of the last few big games of the year. Nintendo's Super Mario Run (opens in new tab) is taking mobile by storm, and we all think it's varying degrees of 'fine'. We take some time to answer a reader question, and chat about the games that inspired us to see games as more than just a thing that sucks up our time. And lastly, we're two weeks away from 2017, and yet there are still games coming out - we talk about a few that are worth seeking out.
