Goomba photo

Goombas almost never made it into Super Mario Bros.

For many, the Goomba was the very first enemy they ever encountered in a video game. The squishy mushroom-eque adversary of Mario has been famously trying to thwart the Italian plumber for over 25 years to little success -- though I'm sure...

Super Mario 3D World is shameless and I love it

Here's what I think happened: Nintendo was planning on leaving a lot of room for third parties to take the spotlight on the Wii U, as they often complain that Nintendo gobble up all the game sales on their own consoles. Then third parties l...
