This week on the Pure Nintendo Podcast, Kirk and Jemma discuss what makes a good remake.

Last week, we discussed the charming Princess Peach: Showtime! This week, we look back at Super Mario 64, which was trending on Twitter recently. There was some debate over the original N64 title versus the DS remake. Which is best? And what makes a good remake anyway? We get into the finer details of this tought question.

We also talk about the current spring sales on the Nintendo Switch eShop. There are some hefty discounts on titles like Cult of the Lamb, Super Bomberman R2, Fae Farm, Red Dead Redemption, and more. We go through our choices, but let us know if you’ve picked up any bargains lately.

We also make time to chat about the games we’re playing this week, including the fast-paced platformer Pepper Grinder and Unicorn Overlord.

Thanks for listening, we love putting these shows together, so let us know your thoughts! And don’t forget to leave us a review to help support the channel.

Until next time, game on everyone!
