Did Nintendo sell us a ROM of Super Mario Bros.?

The Virtual Console on the Wii and Wii U has been pretty crappy. While there are definitely a bunch of classic titles available, Nintendo's treatment of the service comes off as an afterthought. This is a company with one of the richest bac...   read

Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario (and more) is always delightful to watch

Mario may want to think twice about ditching the Mushroom Kingdom

I can't stop thinking about New Donk City. The Super Mario Odyssey locale and its troublingly human citizens just won't leave my mind. Are they people-people? If so, what is Mario? And how, exactly, does the Kong family fit in? These are ...   read

In a smoke-filled theatre on Broadway 84 years ago we were introduced to "Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World." And we all know what happened after that: Jack Black's hubris led to a damn dirty ape scaling our towers with our women. Sure w...   read

Super Mario Odyssey takes Mario to some weirdly mundane places

Mario has been to such strange and fantastic places over his lifetime, it's ironically strange to see him hopping around a regular-ass city. At the very least, his hopping is augmented by his new physics-defying hat. He can throw it and jum...   read
