You know what’s a good game? The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Fire Emblem: Awakening is also really good. And the Last of the Nintendogs crew talks a lot about both because they’re discussing their favorite Nintendo 3DS games this week.

The Nintenmutts also continue to struggle with Mario’s casting news. What they don’t have to struggle with, however, is their excitement for a new 3D Kirby game. Oh, and Mike really likes the new Super Monkey Ball. Come listen to all of that and more.

GamesBeat's creed when covering the game industry is "where passion meets business." What does this mean? We want to tell you how the news matters to you -- not just as a decision-maker at a game studio, but also as a fan of games. Whether you read our articles, listen to our podcasts, or watch our videos, GamesBeat will help you learn about the industry and enjoy engaging with it. Discover our Briefings.
