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.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
