Retronauts Live Episode 52: The Wizard

So, we've once again reached the end of another Retronauts Movie Month -- much slimmer than our last one, but still just as much fun to put together. This time around, I sat down with IGN's Sam Claiborn,'s Ray Barnholt, and 1UP's own Marty Sliva for a discussion about the one movie that captured Nintendomania at its absolute peak: The Wizard. In retrospect, it's a lot less crass than it could have been, even if the movie ostensibly existed to give its fevered child audience a small sampling of the upcoming Super Mario Bros. 3. Anyhow, enjoy the episode, and stay tuned for an all-new installment live from Pax Prime 2012! Maybe we'll see you there?
