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

I find it hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the release of Super Mario 64. I was only eight years old and I remember being completely blown away with the graphics. The 3D was so new, utilized so well, and it gave me such a sen...   read

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

Mario and Luigi's long-lost father appears

It's been thirty years since the NES launched in the U.S., and all that time we've not known a whole lot about the Mario Brothers' home life. The closest we've gotten was in incidental scenes in the Paper Mario and other RPG serie...   read

Nintendo talks amiibo smartphone functionality, is 'looking into it'

Nintendo takes down No Mario's Sky, developer re-uploads it as DMCA's Sky

At this point, it should just be expected that fan-made games using Nintendo's IP will inevitably be hit with a DMCA takedown claim. In the past month alone, the company has taken down Another Metroid 2 Remake, Pokémon Uranium Versio...   read

First an Ecto Cooler reboot, now this? Mario Hot Wheels are a thing

I was never really that into Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars. I mean, I loved the idea of the giant vehicles that turned into play sets, but even then I tended to gravitate towards Mighty Max or Tranformers (I did have the Turtles Party Va...   read
