Super Mario Maker 2 Details & Rage 2’s Open World – OK Beast Podcast Ep. 143


On this week’s OK Beast Podcast, the crew discusses last week’s Super Mario Maker 2 Nintendo Direct, the inaugural Epic Games Store Mega Sale, Sony and Microsoft’s new streaming partnership, and what the closure of Variety Gaming means for the industry. In the What’s Up section, Alex laments Rage 2’s open world format and how the story is dragging the experience down for him, and Moises loves pirate-radio audio game, Alt-Frequencies.
