I love Paper Mario: Color Splash's sense of style

Nintendo has taken the Paper Mario series in a light-adventure direction that, as a fan of the original N64 game and its superb sequel The Thousand-Year Door, I'm not especially enthused about. That said, I have to appreciate the papercraf...   read

How high is Super Mario RPG on your personal all-time ranking list?

So, Super Mario RPG was re-released on Wii U yesterday, and I feel like I have to talk about it. As a kid, I had no idea what I was getting into at first. As a seemingly innocuous Mario game developed by Squaresoft, even the intro...   read

Super Mario Maker fansite aims to put Nintendo's official level finder to shame

When it comes to costumes, Nintendo's support for Super Mario Maker is unwavering. But bigger issues, like expanding its level search system, or adding major objects like slopes, keep piling up. Thankfully the Mario community rose...   read

Fans aren't quite done yet with unique Super Mario Maker ideas

I only go back to Super Mario Maker every so often (a few more game themes, and the use of costumes in any theme but the 8-bit rendition would help), but when I do, I usually come across some new magical thing that the community has fi...   read

PSA: A few of the new Mario amiibo might be rare

Super Mario Bros. director wanted Danny DeVito as Mario, original script was darker

The horror
Have you ever wondered what was under the Shy Guys' masks from the Super Mario Bros. series? I have.

Super Mario Maker just got a small quality of life patch

It's nice to see the Ice Climbers again

Square's Super Mario RPG pitch: Mario with a sword on horseback
