Back again for a solo episode of Mario's Minute this spooky month! I rant a bit about a terrifying sight I saw at a game shop: scalped PS5 consoles in a forced bundle! Kingdom Hearts coming to Switch is discussed, but it isn't as nice as many would expect. Some travel plans from this past month are discussed, a bit of the Switch scene, and my thoughts on the upcoming Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy release.

Mario’s Minute 039 - A Drowned Pixel & PS3/PSP/Vita Digital Storefront Shutdown

For this month of Mario's Minute we're just going over a few topics, but some big ones for this episode! The first being how I ended up forcing a phone upgrade early due to some negligence on my part. PS3/PSP/Vita storefronts are reportedly shutting down in July and August of this year, and although at the time of recording a straight up public statement has yet to be made, I took some time to give my thoughts over this issue in the past, present, and future of digital storefronts. Finally I also talk about a kitten rescue I've accidentally gotten myself into, and wrap everything up with a game store story.
