Join Mike, Andy, Jack and special guest – and Super Mario Kart record-holder – Sami Çetin as we get down to the nitty-gritty of Mario Kart driving technique and drifting strategy and more.
Sami’s fastest completion of Mario Circuit 1 in the NTSC version of Super Mario Kart took just 55.97 seconds and has stood for more than four years! We ask him how he got so good, what advice he’s got for would be challengers and whether he gets worried when his record comes under threat from his rivals.
Elsewhere in the show, we chat about our time with Anthem, Undertale and Old Man’s Journey. We discuss the retirement of Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime – and his replacement by Bowser – and we speculate on Fallout 76’s future with our Wild Appalachia roadmap in hand.
