I’m Still Not a Big Fan of Super Mario 64

I don’t really like Super Mario 64.  There, I said it.  I understand that the game was a big deal for its time, considering it was one of the first 3D platformers ever made.  While that is certainly something to be admired, I never really had the best opinion of this game.  In fact, I…

Top 6 Worst Stars in Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 may have been a classic of its time, but that didn’t prevent it from being a major pain as far as certain stars were concerned.  I was able to complete the game 100% years ago, and I attempted the feat once more during my recent recording of the game for YouTube.  As…

Top 10 Worst Shine Sprites in Super Mario Sunshine

Having recently replayed Super Mario Sunshine on the Switch, my newest attempts at 100% were filled with plenty of fun…and plenty of utter aggravation.  I had nearly forgotten how truly terrible some of these Shines are to collect, and I wanted to list my top ten worst Shines in the game, complete with a few…

2021’s Most Played Switch Game Was…Fortnite. Wow.

As is typical of the New Year’s season, there’s really not all that much to talk about in terms of gaming news. I mean sure, Square Enix really stepped in it with that NFT nonsense, but I don’t really want to talk about NFts at them moment (who does? they’re so stupid!) So, how about…

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is Truly Charming

When I picked up Mario + Rabbids Kindgom Battle earlier this year, I knew I was in for a treat, but I had no clue of just how rewarding an experience it would be. The game had long been on my radar, but with so much else jockeying for my attention, it slowly faded from…

Nintendo’s New Switch Looks Cool, But…

So, Nintendo launched a new version of the Switch last week: the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model). It looks nice, and it has some nice changes. However, this isn’t an upgrade in the same vein as upgrades for previous Nintendo consoles. In fact, it’s so in substantial that I can’t help but wonder who exactly this…

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle First Impressions

In hindsight, I’m not sure if I picked the best or worst time to play Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch, 2017). When I got it a few weeks ago, I knew that Mass Effect Legendary Edition was in the wings, and I was already headlong into my Mass Effect: Andromeda replay. As well, Neverwinter…

Nintendo’s Cyber Sales Have Begun!

As most Nintendo fans know, Nintendo isn’t exactly keen on discounting their games. It doesn’t matter how old a game gets; if it releases for $50, you can bet it’ll still be $50 three years later. Even so, even Nintendo has sales every now and then, and the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period is one of…

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Will Only Be Available for a Limited Time

Nintendo has recently announced a whole bunch of things that will be available for the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.  This includes making various Mario titles available on the Switch, a Mario Game & Watch, Mario-themed furniture coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March of 2021, and even…Mario-inspired shoes?  Okay.  Ahem, you can…
