ARGcast #168: Making an Appointment with the Dr. Mario Series

by ARGcast

David and Robert make a house call with Dr. Mario! Join us for a deep dive into the puzzle franchise that gave Nintendo’s plucky plumber a whole new job.

Time for a check-up, ARGonauts! David and Robert take a close examination of the Dr. Mario series in light of the release of Dr. Mario World. We also give our impressions of the new mobile game and how it differs from the games of its namesake.

This week’s news has us discuss the big reveal of the Nintendo Switch Lite and who it’s really for. That’s followed by the early release of Dr. Mario World, a Sega Dreamcast micro-series you gotta check out, and PlayStation having their own retro-themed sale.

The Stage of History has us celebrate the good doctor with Dr. Mario 64 and Dr. Mario Online Rx. Robert crosses over with Tetris & Dr. Mario during Obscura. Be sure to nab our game code giveaways also!
