It’s October, so it seemed like a good time to finally start Luigi’s Mansion 3. That’s about as spooky as I get these days. Liking it so far, random thoughts in comments.


Finished my full 242 run of Galaxy today. Kiddo wants Super Mario 64 next, so I’m going for the first 120 run in probably 15 years. MAN this looks good in HD, even if it’s only 720p30fps.


It makes me a proud papa when I get the DKC map theme stuck in my head because my 5yo is humming it.


In awe at the size of this lad. Absolute unit


I'm not predictable, I'm consistent.


Finally won my first game of Mario 35! Even if I never win again, I can rest easy knowing I pulled it off once.


As a lifelong platformer fan, it’s strange to me that there are people who like 2D Mario OR 3D Mario, but not both.


I love playing Super Mario Galaxy's NG+ and just blazing through it without stopping to smell the roses. Though that makes the forced tutorials and unskippable dialogue all the more grating.


The Steve presentation was great, and he looks like a really interesting character. That said, gotta pour one out for my Travis Touchdown homies.


So I can either 1) have a comments avatar that isn't a generic-ass chicken, or 2) use dark theme and make/upvote Qposts. Is that the long and short of it?


Mario 35 is a really cool idea, though I’m not fond of the fact that the timer often decides the winner. Here’s hoping you don’t get stuck in 2-2 without fireballs!


Friendly reminder that Super Mario 35 starts today! Finally, 30+ years of experience is going to pay off.


I'm honestly surprised at how many people are legitimately upset about Steve in Smash. Are there really so few Smash fans that also enjoy Minecraft? The only time I didn't want Steve was when I thought he would beat out Banjo for a Microsoft rep.


I forgot how trippy the ending to Galaxy was. And I was convinced that Bouldergeist was Galaxy 2 until I saw his pic in the end credits. Best Galaxy boss IMO.


Good grief. I’ve seen teenage girls have more civil discussions than this.


Is there a "genwunner"-style Pokemon term for someone who only really liked the 2D games but thought XY was okay?


My kid couldn't give a rat's ass about Fall Guys now that he's seen "the game where Mario is up in outer space".


Watching A Bug’s Life makes me want to play Pokémon Snap.


Count Chocula > Franken Berry > Boo Berry. Also, they’re back in season now.


It makes sense because of the release order, but looking at Mario Galaxy again today, it feels like a weird blend of Sunshine and 3D World. And after the length of Odyssey, I feel like I’m absolutely blazing through Galaxy.


I liked Impa in the first Hyrule Warriors, before it was cool.


Played Galaxy for the first time in over ten years. I instinctively wanted to flick my wrist the first time I used a launch star.


In case you somehow haven’t seen this yet.


I finally realized that Dragon's Dogma was my gateway to Monster Hunter.


Got my hands on 3D All-Stars! Someone convince my OCD that I'm allowed to go straight to Galaxy without being required to replay SM64 and Sunshine again first.


And this is assuming I give up on finishing 4U or starting GU.


Working from home in 2020 be like


Anyone here ever eat a Milk-Bone? Asking for a friend.
