See Larry Koopa strut his stuff once more


5:40 PM on 06.22.2009



In the whole E3 madness, I somehow did not get the memo that the Koopalings would be returning to the Super Mario Bros. series. They were always my favorite characters in SMB 3 and I have long lamented their absence from games which followed. So, getting an e-mail about a video of the boss fight with Larry Koopa got me a little more excited than I probably would have been if someone (anyone) had bothered to mention them to me weeks ago.

Then again, it's been a good while since their last game appearance and you can hardly blame me for writing the characters off. Interestingly, it's only now that I realized most of the Koopalings get their monikers from musicians. Naming a cutesy but nasty villainess in a game marketed to children after Wendy O. Williams seems a ballsy move for the typically conservative games company. I highly doubt we'd see something similar today.

Anyway, check out the video after the jump. Who's your favorite Koopa Kid?

Miyamoto originally pitched Mario for Splatoon

Splatoon's squishy squids that characterize the game came long after the graffiti-tagging gameplay concept. "We had found that the ink-battle play mechanic was fun, and the team was working very hard to brush up on that aspe...more

Review: Mario Party 10

I haven't enjoyed the past few console editions of Mario Party. I felt like 8 was rushed to the Wii as an excuse to show off the technology, and it ended up being a generic waggle-fest that was a stark drop in quality co...more
