The Week in Geek – Mario Takes Over the Switch, Star Trek: Discovery Gets Another Season, and More Veronica Mars?

Too busy to keep up on all things geeky this week? We’ve got you covered with the trailers, merch, and news coming out of the week that was!

Super Mario Odyssey gets released on the Nintendo Switch

What’s a new Nintendo system without a new Mario game? The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild did the heavy lifting during the Swtich’s March launch, and now it’s Mario’s turn to carry Nintendo into the holidays. Super Mario Odyssey is already getting rave reviews, and for good reason — now that Mario (literally) wears many hats, critics are raving about the variety in the game and the sheer amount to explore. In this game, Mario has a living hat buddy named Cappy, who he can toss on enemies and objects to take control of them — I got to play a demo at E3 earlier this year and it’s as fun as it sounds. I know what I’m doing this weekend!
