Fun fact, all the talk of Mario Odyssey here on Destructoid is precisely what triggered me into wanting a Switch. I told my wife that there weren't any games at launch for me to really want the system. But I severely underestimated the quaity of a big, AAA Mario game. They're always an event, regardless of quality. And since Odyssey is amazing, it was total global saturation.
For a few days straight it was just a constant barrage of funny Mario Odyssey pictures and endless compliments, my favorite being a complex example of a complicated video game juxtaposed by descriptions of situations in Mario Odyssey like, "Haha, I put a funny hat on Mario."
This week, I'm hoping on bottling up all the enjoyment you've kept pent up since we were worried about too many spoilers on the quickposts, and just go buck wild about your favorite things. Yes, I'm ok with spoilers on Mario Odyssey in the comments and if you don't want spoilers, turn right around now.
Asides from everyone's favorite darling kingdom, Metro Kingdom with New Donk City, I was really blown away by the Japanese aesthetic of Bowser's Kingdom.It really stuck to me, especially having played Nioh earlier this year. The fact that it was consistently Japanese, from slanted rooftops to samurai birds you'll possess many times for an enjoyable beak jumping designs.
So what did you think of Mario Odyssey? Expect to see something pop up on the FP this weekend. Until then, jump upsuper star!
