By the time this goes up, it probably won't be Monday, so, good day to you whenever it is! Being the sucker that I am, and a special kind of sucker: the Nintendo fan, I got SMB3 on the Wii U this past week. It was only a buck for me, so I couldn't not get it. As ever, the Virtual Console is perfect for tv or off-tv play. (Advance Wars omg)

Playing SMB3 for the millionth time was still pretty cool. Even so, I have some minor gripes with it. There's seemingly no way for player one to use the gamepad, and player two to use a Wiimote. I couldn't get that to be a thing. I thought that would have been worked out by now. I hope I'm not just being extra stupid...
Also, and again, this could just be me, but the difference in lag was messing with me. I've played the Mario games more than anyone should, so I don't think it's my imagination. I had the same problem with Wii U versions of the other Mario games. It's small, but causes me to sometimes completely miss jumps! I'm starting to miss the old hardware. For multiple reasons now.

So uh...where was I going with any of this? I don't know. I guess we could do some reCAPS while you're here. How's that sound?



* - Tonich continues with his series about what it's like to be a gamer in provinvial Russia. This one's about the (usually terrible) localization of games.

* - Gamingnerd15 gives the Gameboy a 25th birthday tribute with a list of his favorite game and franchises from the console.

A - Scrustle's breakdown of what happened to the racing genre. Do you think it's in bad shape?

A - bbain has a point here. The GaymerX article on the FP brought out some really weirdly negative stuff in the FP commentors.

A - Captain Fish Sticks, claiming to be unbiased, really really likes The Elder Scrolls Online.

A - Is Lightning Returns a Valkyrie Profile reboot? Or a poor-man's rip-off?



S - nanashi wants to thank everyone for an amazing PAX. And then some rest.

V - Diego Vallejos posts the announcement video for Freedom Wars' American release.

T - Fengor's comment-turned-blog on the MMO's curious life cycle.

T - Help will be given to those who ask for it, in Dark Souls II.

V - HybridRain's part 2 of his video series about strong characters' sex appeal, and what role it plays.



? - bilbouk sort of defines browser games I guess?

V - Bling Pringles video reviews some Ayn Rand literature, since we all requested it so much.

F - At least format your fucking copypasta so it's readable.

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
