Challenge medals make a decent case for Super Mario Maker on 3DS

Those of you who missed the joy and torment of Super Mario Maker because you don't own a Wii U will have much more of an incentive to look at December's 3DS port. It's a comparatively lesser version, given that you won't be able to share y...   read

You will never collect this Super Mario 64 coin

Friends, I know our culture of conspicuous consumption and wealth hoarding encourage us to collect all of the coins, but, alas, you will not be able to collect this coin. At least not without hacking like some sort of Russian. The gist is ...   read

New 3DS XL goes lime green for this Super Mario World bundle

Are there any other colors left for Nintendo to explore with its handheld gaming systems? This latest New 3DS XL bundle, an Amazon exclusive at least here in the States, is lime green. I feel like that's a love-it-or-hate-it color choice (i...   read

What would happen if Mario and Pikachu did the fusion dance? No, this isn't some deviantart contest, but if it were Nintendo would claim all the entries considering it and the Pokémon Company have teamed up create an official mo...   read

Review: Super Mario Adventures

In 1992, I was three years old. Apparently, some of you old farts were reading Nintendo Power at that time and were treated to installments of Super Mario Adventures. The magazine ran a chapter of the story each month of the year, and now t...   read

Review: Paper Mario: Color Splash

I need to apologize in advance for what you're about to read. I'm about to gush about a game. I'm going to gush hard. I'm going to gush about its graphics, about its music, about its humor and about all the improvements it made over Pa...   read

Miyamoto once said Mario is 24 or 25 and what's even real anymore?

Come to think of it, I've never before tried to guess Mario's age specifically. Have you? I've always considered him to be in some vague late-30s or early-40s gray area, if not older, going off the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film. That's a wide...   read

20-year-old Japanese Mario 64 interview finally gets translated

Super Mario Maker is also skipping 3D support on 3DS

With the knowledge that the 3DS port of Super Mario Maker won't let creators upload their levels online (they're just sharable locally), this latest omission -- a lack of 3D support -- feels insignificant. That said, I know some people can ...   read
