  • Ok but honestly who the hell would've ever thought a hairy adult italian fat dwarf on a penguin suit would look cute. How did they do it. Brilliant.

    I always thought Penguin Mario just looked ridiculous. The penguin aesthetic does fit Mario: round, silly, cute in overalls, looks good in a suit and top hat. Penguin Suit is a natural fit for Mario.

    Mario ain't hairy though. He just has facial hair, a full set of hair, and eyebrows, and that's the extent of his hair. It's established now that Mario absolutely lacks hair on his body.
    I was extremely anxious the past few nights just following the election and trying to play games to get my mind off them. But I'm happy America rejected fascism at least for the next four years.

    I uhh never get anxious on elections (my country is used to disaster) but, if it makes you feel good, the guy I voted for I thought he could possibly win and only got 1-2% of the votes.
    i got so hyped when i got to world 3 in NSMBW for the first time cause of this powerup, especially in that first level where you slide through everything

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii doesn't supply much Penguin Suits outside of World 3, World 4, and one level in World S, to be fair, but that's still an adequate amount for an entire game. Propeller Suits are just common throughout New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Anyhow, it's kinda a thing how Mario games like to advertise new powerups, but just put them in like three levels out of 80 levels. Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 are particularly heinous offenders.

    Yes, but you could regularly get both Propeller and Penguin via any Toad House in NSMBWii as well. In NSMBU, they're exclusive to those four Toad Houses in Superstar Road and never appeared in a level (at least, I don't think they did). Kinda like the UFO ability in Kirby: Planet Robobot--a fan favorite, but by the time you get it you'll already have seen everything else the game has to offer.

    Well in that case, it seems like Propeller and Penguin suits, I think they're meant for the challenges and a bit of a callback to New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They want to focus more on the Baby Yoshi and the Flying Squirrel Suit, I figure. Still, they had that opportunity and blew it.
    Nice theme change.

    I just know him from that meme whenever someone posts stupid cringe.

    Who's the guy in the "kill it with fire" meme?

    Hank Scorpio, from the episode You Only Move Twice from the eighth season.
    He was going to be in The Simpsons Movie, but was cut in favor of Russ Cargill.

    They make all these anniversary promotional materials for Mario platformers but why do we not ever have the grand book of everything Mario Party? Heck, where's the Mario Kart and Mario Golf anniversary stuff????

    Mario Kart Tour celebrated its 1st anniversary. Mario Kart may do a thing in 2022.
    Mario Party is just Mario Party. The closest thing right now to a anniversary title is The Top 100 on 3DS.
    Mario Golf doesn’t have a big fanbase like Tennis.

    tfw the black, viscous exploitative slime of Mario Kart gets celebrated before the video games of that series

    The mention of Mario Kart not being celebrated is odd, given how often it is celebrated. For example, Super Mario 3D World has a level themed around Mario Kart, and the Super Mario 35th video took care to include Mario Kart alongside. In terms of promotional materials, maybe there isn't much but it has plenty of spotlight such as that one time Google put Mario Kart on Maps.

    I may not be into merchandising, but Mario Party sounds like a pretty good idea, given how many minigames there so that's a lot of material there.

    Thank you for reading.

    Uh, you want an explanation for that?

    As for the circle disappearing, it's a blind spot test. We all have a zone in our eyeballs where there are no sensory receptors (rods and cones), where the nerve fibers are connect to the retina. Only the octopus doesn't have a blind spot.

    Yes this apparently wasn't discovered until 16th century France. That's a lot of time in human history to figure that out...

    not to be confused with mariofan632??? and mfan168/9.
    I feel there's a weird sense of irony that in Smash Bros., I turned Mario, a normally silent protagonist, into a man that won't shut the hell up about marvelous 3DS tech functions and Sports Mix Press conferences.

    Imagine if Nintendo releases New Super Mario Bros. Switch: Legacy Edition but it's just New Super Mario Bros. U with a roster update (Toadette) and it's not even New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe.
    Uh, oh. LGM, here comes your evil doppleganger, RightyPurpleMario.
    Can anyone tell me where this render (warning: it's a render of Mario, don't hold your breath) is from beyond a page (i.e. has this been used in other promotional material?) in the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia?

    Considering how the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia translators unashamedly plagiarized our own Super Mario Wiki, you're not wrong.

    Hey, that's the stretching Mario artwork I've been looking for! I don't know if it's the original source, but it's used as Mario's artwork on the character select screen for the Nintendo 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

    huh ive never seen this before!!! always pretty cool to see mario renders youre not actually familiar with
    My life might be a little more complete if there's some 4koma manga that shows the obstacles in Chocolate Fortress as literal pencils.

    Feast your eyes upon my art-senal! Twelve pencils, ready to make your bodies my canvas!
    Uh...

    Fuck it, Michel Ancel's probably an asshole just like the rest of the toxic stew that is Ubisoft. Keep Rayman out of Smash. The less Ubisoft property I have to see from then on, the better.

    Oh hey, remember last week when Rayman/Beyond Good and Evil creator Michel Ancel announced he was leaving the game industry? Looks like he may have jumped ship as French outlet Liberation was about to do an expose on his abusive management.

    He can have his little fun at a sanctuary while leaving behind people he possibly hurt.


    Some translated quotes
    "Ganesha City, which [he] asked us to do with a completely stupid level of detail, we only just finished it three years later, and we've had to redo it four or five times. Knowing that we have to do several planets, you can imagine the absurdity of this kind of reasoning."
    "Michel needs the ideas to be his. He often prefers to improvise something of his own rather than listen to the team and look at the structured work we've done at his request."
    "He is able to explain to you that you are a genius, that your idea is great, and then he can take you apart in meetings by saying that you are a piece of shit, that your work is worthless, and not talk to you for a month."

    ok so basically ubisoft sucks ass and arent doing anything about all the long ass amount of time of abuse and mismanagement and harassment of their employees! like they Said they did something about a few bad peeps but its barely a change i believe, and the rest still get away scot free! also one of their recent games or trailers or whatever just kinda put blm protesters in a bad light which was really terrible too!!! they just kinda, said theyd remove hte fist. i dont think they even apologized for the blatant racism specifically. what hte hell
    by the way while were at it. right now ancel is denying the claims saying theyre fake but we dont know yet for sure whats really going on still..

    Michel Ancel's calling the allegations, "fake news". That doesn't add to his credibility imo but we'll see how the investigations turn out. I don't have high expectations for Ancel though.

    It's times like that where I wonder how long it will take before a collaborative work done by many people would be shed of the stigma of the talent behind them. In this case, there's Rayman, which I acknowledge that is not done by one person but the one behind it appears to be the forefront of it. It seems that the people behind the talent has a very strong foundation in spirit, so even if the work is not the most favoured by everybody it would not be badly affected compared to a great work by an infamous person.

    Thank you for reading.
    If you think platformer Mario just dies to a Koopa touching him, I will tell you that the moment he gets a Mushroom, he can survive even a giant impaling metal thing, thousands of times bigger than him, going right through him.

    oh sheet
    Pirated copies of Super Mario 3D All Stars are crashing on Switch consoles but some media have the gall to refer to modded consoles as "sullied", like they're contaminated. First, modded Switches are not "sullied" lol, you can always reboot to regular firmware. Second, Nintendo doesn't need your defense, tinkered consoles aren't inherently a bad thing and have features such as save backups, customized games, and custom themes, not just for piracy. Third, a superior emulation for Super Mario 64 in the Switch exists, and Super Mario 64 is the one causing crashing issues. You can be against modded consoles, but be paid to know what the hell you're talking about.

    I'm looking at particularly you, screenrant.

    I would mod my Switch to get different themes, but I don't want to fuck anything up cause I'm not the only one who uses it.

    Eh it's not the most reliable thing to do. You pretty much need a pre summer 2018 Switch or not update the thing, first is dependent on circumstance, second is just a bit too much of a sacrifice since you lose out on game updates, new games, and stuff.
