Power Button - Episode 11: In Which Super Mario Galaxy 2 And Red Dead Redemption Consume Our Nights
May 28, 2010
It takes a special kind of video game to grab the attention of all three of us in a single week, but Nintendo's new Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Wii has done the trick, so it's only proper that Brad Hilderbrand, Joey Davidson, and I discuss our respective returns to space. We hit the game's high points, ponder on whether or not it's a proper sequel, and compare notes on the experience. Then, turning away from the Mushroom Kingdom drama, Brad and Joey go on about Rockstar's new Red Dead Redemption for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 while I ask questions and basically demand to be won over by the western adventure people love to praise. The whole show clocks in at just under one hour of fun and frolics. Download this week's episode directly from PTB, listen with the player below, or subscribe via iTunes (and we're still working on fixing the issue where iTunes only offers the latest episode), and be sure to catch up on past episodes if you're joining us late. Remember that you can reach all three of us via and you can even follow on Twitter at @PressTheButtons or for just podcast updates, @ThePowerButton. Next week: friend of the show Dan "Shoe" Hsu of Bitmob joins us to discuss the oft-cozy relationship between publisher PR departments and video game journalists.
