Super Joystiq Podcast 071: Super Mario 3D World, Killzone Shadow Fall, backlogs


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast has the most buttons of any podcast-- ever.

A week light on games, but full of friendly discussion. Ludwig is joined by Team Rocket (Jess and Jordan-- duh), for likely the last time. In his departing show, Jordan talks Super Mario 3D World, Ludwig hits the PlayStation 4's premiere shooter Killzone: Shadow Fall, and Jess checks in with some Nintendo 2DS impressions.

Another lengthy mailbag and more giveaways are also in-store this week. In tribute to recent Borderlands 2 streaming shenanigans, we have two copies of Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition up for grabs.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast: Podcast timestamps and relevant links are available after the break.
