In this week’s episode of the OK Beast Podcast, the crew is joined by Bob Wulff from The Wulff Den and AJ McRae from Fanatix Four to discuss Super Mario 3D All-Stars review impressions, Microsoft acquiring Zenimax and Bethesda Game Studios, Amazon’s announcement of its new cloud-gaming service, Luna, and climbing out of hell in Supergiant Games’ rogue-lite, Hades.
Thank you to Patreon supporter Austin Ernst for sponsoring this week’s Topic of the Show, asking us, “Are we going to see a much more even gaming sphere [in terms of competition] this console gaming generation between the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, and the New Nintendo Switch?”

Listener Questions (Tweet Us or Email Hello@OKBeast.com):
Alex Felker asks, “Question for Bob Wulff. How does it feel to have the most sultry voice in games? Actual question for y’all. If you were Sony what studio would you target as a counter to MSFT’s acquisition of Bethesda/ZeniMax?”
Eduardo Santana asks, “If you had to purge one of the 3D Marios from existence, which one would it be? And What would you like from the next 3D Mario? And a big thanks to Bob for pushing the Satisfye grip so much. It’s fantastic.”
Cly asks, “What’s your favorite game for the memory of playing it, regardless of the quality of the game? Mine is Life Is Strange. In my freshman year, there was a group of about 20 people that gathered in the lobby 5 nights in a row to play through the episodes. Each decision we made by vote/debate which created such an intense connection to the story, regardless of the ending.”
Oli asks, “Out of the 3 Mario games, which is your favorite, and why? Bonus question: which company had a smoother pre-sale experience? Cheers!”
Ben asks, “I would love a conversation around the first 2-3 games you all will be playing on the new consoles.”
Gags asks, “Honest opinions on the $60 price point? What are some improvements you wish they would have made to the 3 games included (not graphics related)?”
