There's always that one jackass

A real, actual Mario game is finally coming to mobile and we are EXCITED. But not everyone shares our glee.

We talk about the hand-wringing over how a quasi-premium game will be received on the platform, and answer concerns about whether mobile gamers care about games period. We have a few choice words to offer on this topic.

All this ties into the larger issue of whether premium games are dead on mobile (spoiler alert: NO). We talk about how crappy this narrative is, plus how Amazon’s move away from mobile games isn't necessarily a valid example of premium games’ struggles.

Please rate and review us on iTunes, follow us on Twitter (and follow Jessica and Anna too), like us on Facebook, buy our merch, and email us if you know anyone at Nintendo Enthusiast cause we'd like to give them a wedgie :-p
