Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 & Super Mario Bros. Wonder First Impressions
The Weekly Stuff Podcast #481
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 Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
Two of the most anticipated video games of 2023 launched this week, with Sony and Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 for the PS5 and Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. Wonder for the Nintendo Switch. We’ve been extremely excited for both, and so far, they haven’t disappointed. We give initial spoiler-free impressions of both games on today’s show, discussing how Mario Wonder delivers a deliriously fun re-invention of 2D Mario platformers and Spider-Man 2 serves as both a compulsively playable superhero game and the PS5’s best tech demo to date. Sean also talks about finally diving into Baldur’s Gate 3, and we remind everyone to listen to Japanimation Station’s Kyoto Vacation, the amazing new season of our anime podcast that just launched last week!
