Did Mario come out on top?

We launched our Game of the Year Awards in the last podcast, and now the results have been cast and independently verified it's time to announce the victors and honour them in a stream of audio goodness.

We'll reveal the games we at Nintendo Life believe to be 2009's best, with individual awards for Wii, DS, WiiWare and DSiWare, as well as gongs for the top developers on both download formats and the best looking and sounding games of the past twelve months. That's a whole lotta gold.

We've also got an exclusive interview with Nnooo's Nic Watt, where we take a look back at his 2009 and try to squeeze out a few details of his upcoming projects, and we also have a quick chat with Yen Hau from Rising Star Games about... well, with this being a Game of the Year podcast and all, it doesn't take a genius to work that one out.
