Rumors have swirled for months about Nintendo pulling out something big for Mario’s 35th Anniversary, but nothing could have prepared us for the treasure trove of Mario goodness that Nintendo surprise-dropped on us in their latest Nintendo Direct. We actually do take some breaks from gushing about all that nostalgia-tickling goodness to talk inform our listeners (I promise?).

We also discuss Nvidia’s new 3000 series of graphics cards. They look to be an insane leap forward in graphics processing technology, at a time when everyone has begun to wonder if graphics and performance can really get substantially better. What does the arrival of these new behemoth’s mean for the next-gen consoles? Is PC really the winner in this latest rendition of the never ending “console war”?

What is the true next-gen cost for games that consumers can expect? Is it going to be more all over the place than ever before?
