In today's episode of Pregame Discharge, Lyle is the son of Mario and his uncle works at Nintendo!


Does this mean Lyle is Italian?

While Lyle continues the conga line that is his own existential crisis, here’s what’s been happening in video games this past week:

  • Call of Duty is heading back to Modern Warfare!
  • Todd Howard discussed the smooth (not really) launch of Fallout 76!
  • Jumanji is getting a video game and more!

Lyle had a difficult childhood. So, I figured the best way to suppress those memories would be to replace any memories of parental figures he’s had in life with his favorite video game characters.

However, this backfired horribly as the memories of trying to beat Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels became memories of what he believed to be parental figures. Now he’s haunted day in and day out by the thoughts of Mario coming to punish him for not being able to beat World C...mistakes were made.

Discharged question of the week: who are your favorite video game parents?
