Jocelyn is still on the mend so this week Ryan is joined by James “Iyagovos” Bartholomeou and first time guest Eric Mahler. Nintendo had a new major release on the Wii U for the first time in 3 months with Mario Kart 8 and we’re here to let you know just how awesome it is. From the tracks to the music and the online play, we cover it all! Eric and Ryan are especially big fans of the YouTube export functionality, a welcome change of heart from Nintendo who normally ignores the extra internet focused features. Next up James fills us in on his career as a Titan pilot in Titanfall. Just how satisfying is it to rip an opposing player from his doomed mech? Listen in and find out! We conclude the AAA video game talk with a chat on the new indie release A Story About My Uncle.

Before we wrap up the show Eric shares his experiences as both a gamer and a father, and how that impacts your play time and the content you play. Future gamer parents will be happy to hear it’s not doom and gloom, but with a balanced life it’s possible to continue honing your leet skills while raising future gamers.
