The Super NES Classic Edition is out this week, and we got our hands on one. On this week’s episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast, host and PC gaming editor Jeffrey Grubb asks co-host and reviews editor Mike Minotti whether it lives up to the excitement.

We also talk about the news from the last week. Bethesda wants to get close with Nintendo and its fans. Game developers admit they’re afraid to speak out due to “toxic” gamer culture. Xbox boss Phil Spencer gets a promotion. And w easo talk about Monster Hunter: World and Nier: Automata.

In the second segment, Mike and Jeff spend a lot of time trying to determine what the “core” Mario games are. This is a pointless exercise that we take far too seriously. You should join us and share your list — but only if you agree with our opinions.

Games discussed this week:

  • SteamWorld Dig 2
  • Mystic Melee
  • Thimbleweed Park
  • Super Nintendo Classic Edition
