Wrapping up New Podcast Week, we have The Boss Room—a general interest gaming podcast covering all platforms and all games both new and retro. In its seventh episode, hosts Alex and Shamster (joined mid-recording by Imamu) list off their predictions and most anticipated games for 2021.While most of their predictions revolve around Nintendo, the two stay pretty safe with their guesses—though I take issue with one point. They argue that there isn’t a need for Mario Kart 9 on the Switch! What! Mario Kart 8 celebrates its SEVENTH birthday this year…YES WE NEED a Mario Kart 9 (plus, it’d be great to see a revamp/upgrade to the online options).
Aside from that small point, I love The Boss Room’s energy and rapport, and they are (maybe?) the only podcast I listen to that includes morning zoo-style sound effects. I hope that the inclusion of those doesn’t make editing too much of a chore (luckily they stay on the side of not overdoing it).
