The Weekly Stuff Podcast #345 – Super Mario 3D All Stars, PS5 Showcase, Demon’s Souls, Final Fantasy XVI & More!

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

This week brought maybe the best gaming showcase event we’ve seen all year, as Sony not only unveiled the price and release date of the PlayStation 5, but also showed off the Demon’s Souls remake, gave us a good look at Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and most surprisingly, unveiled Final Fantasy XVI. It was a heck of a show, even if the pre-orders that followed were a disaster, and altogether, we’re more excited for the next generation than ever before. Jonathan also talks about Nintendo’s Super Mario 3D All Stars collection for Nintendo Switch, and discusses finally giving Super Mario Sunshine a chance after all these years.

And in light of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we’re also making a political call to action this week, asking listeners to donate to the Get Mitch or Die Trying fundwhich splits donations evenly amongst Democratic Senate candidates so we can get Mitch McConnell out of his job, protect the Supreme Court, and strengthen our democracy.

Enjoy!

The Weekly Stuff #344 – Marvel’s Avengers Review, Xbox Series S, Mario 35 Nintendo Direct, and more!


It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

It’s been a big couple of weeks for video game news, from Nintendo unveiling all their plans for Mario’s 35th anniversary to Xbox (finally!) unveiling the Series S and their next-gen launch dates and pricing, to another round of announcements from Ubisoft. We break down all of that and more, including a check-in on the state of movie releases in the US for the rest of 2020. Before all that, we also check in on how life is going amidst the ongoing pandemic chaos, Sean reviews the latest DLC for Control, and we talk at length about Marvel’s Avengers, the wildly imperfect but also surprisingly compelling superhero game that launched last week.

Enjoy!
