This story is part of The Daily Charge, CNET reporters Roger Cheng and Ben Fox Rubin tackle the top tech stories of the day. Don't mind their awkwardness.

Nintendo's next jump into mobile games has been running on our minds.

We got a sneak peek of Super Mario Run, which comes out for iOS next Thursday and for Android in 2017. It looks and feels like a Mario game, if there was a special level with just one button. We debate whether it's worth the $9.99 price tag, and talk about what future Nintendo mobile games will be like.

Also on the podcast, we discuss Amazon shutting down a rumor that it's opening 2,000 stores. The company told CNET it's not opening 2,000 of anything.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
