RIP LUIGI (1983-2018) + AN INTERVIEW WITH A VIDEO GAME PRODUCER! | Upside Down Shark Radio #44


It’s with a heavy heart that we start this week’s episode pouring one out for a fallen homie – Luigi is no more. Taking in the prime of his life, we look at how an innocent trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate resulted in the death of a gaming icon.

With that morbid business taken care of, we spend the rest of this week’s episode chatting with video game producer, designer, writer, journalist, historian & all round extraordinaire – Denis Murphy. We discuss the unwritten story of cancelled video game projects, how to make it as a journalist in a cut-throat industry and what retro games YOU should be playing.
