    FLAC support

    The game stores the tracks as 4-bit GameCube DSP ADPCM, a lossy format compared to the Red Book Audio of the soundtrack CD. FLAC would prevent further generational degradation.

    Mach Speed Mayhem (Superchao 'Shroom Section)

    So people went out to PM me so that I voted Draq, then I go here and everyone + dog is voting Super Arrow, you know what? My vote is for generic anime character #78453... I mean Clank Hughes.

    That fat Yoshi reminds me of Star Yoshi. So cute!

    Actually, when a power-up form isn’t intended to eventually get a cup, they choose a generic emblem, so that’s what they did here. I’m more surprised at this point that they didn’t do that for Builder Toad.

    I’m still of the opinion that gacha should be banned altogether - replace it with stupidly high prices if you still want pay2win to have free2play, but at least keep it away. Gambling is people- and family-ruining, and nobody should be exposed to gambling-like mechanics, even though gachapon is...

    Heh, in this sense having snowboarding DK in DK Summit makes more sense, basically the barrel cannon was the main DK aspect of that course... in any case, there is some wondering on whether there’s still some issue with Rare as far as the current appearance of DK is concerned. Said appearance...

    FLAC support

    Well, the wiki now fully supports FLAC files, in both FLAC and Ogg containers, as you can see in my test page here User:Mister_Wu/FLAC_test my question now is what should we do with them: accepting them or not? If yes, with which container and extension?

    Well, DK Summit was unexpected. Plus Penguin Toad. Where is the DK alt tho?

    Thanks, it must be XenForo not supporting transparency in thumbnails - misleading at best, but I guess transparency isn’t widespread enough yet to mandate proper support.

    I was very fond of the black and white ones, these ones are even more amazing! Little aside, the Wii U ones had transparent backgrounds already at the texture level, these ones having a white background will be a little more of an issue for us if we want to add them to the wiki, I wonder if...

    Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

    Well, we now have the colored versions of the hand-drawn artwork of Giga Cat Mario and Fury Bowser! The Giga Bell can be spotted, too!

    Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

    It’s pretty catisfying in my opinion. After all, it’s paired with the game whose 100% reward was “replay the whole game until all the characters have touched all the goal poles to get shining stars in the file select screen”.

    With so many Marios in Team Peach, it’s pretty understandable.

    Well, My Nintendo notebook and keychain are decent enough? I think this is the first hand-drawn artwork of Giga Cat Mario and Fury Bowser, by the way.

    And now a burning question: Bowser Jr. is in Team Peach because Peach is his mama, but why are the Koopalings in Team Peach too and not with Bowser and the Koopa Troopas in Team Daisy?

    Well, Nintendo claimed copyright on the video to stop the leaks, so I’ll stay mum until release. Which is good, as that would be a wall of text incoming just for the soundtrack choice...

    Super Mario 3D All-Stars

    Thing is, Lost Levels was between 1 and 3, here the most recent is Galaxy, so they just stopped there. I agree that having Galaxy 2 and 3D Land would have made sense to prepare for 3D World - the transition would have been more gradual - but it looks like the collection was a bit rushed, so they...

    Super Mario 3D All-Stars

    Honestly, Galaxy 2 was even deemed by the developers to be a Galaxy 1.5 or, as we would say now, “DLC before they were a thing on the Wii”. Galaxy is the groundbreaking game that expanded the Mario universe, added Rosalina and all the gravity-based mechanics, saying that Galaxy is incomplete...

    Sono contento che ti piacciano! Effettivamente, i libri sono pubblicati da Shogakukan, e a detta del colophon nella loro creazione ci fu una collaborazione con la Nintendo. L’illustratore, Masaya Shiosaki, ha solo lavorato su quei libri e non sembra quindi essere un dipendente della Nintendo...

    Well, good news! Our mysterious illustrator at Nintendo continues making awesome artwork! It's the turn of Berlin Byways now! Winter 2020 Mario and Peach come back, and Toad is into photography? Oh, for :yoshi: fans, another good news: Black Yoshi is now a permanent driver in the pipes, he...

    I Haven't Posted Here In A While, so here's a throwback. What's your favorite Koopaling?

    Well, Ludwig. even back in the SNES era I found it fun how they had sneaked in a classical music reference (but now that I know that the names came way later, I wonder who they based his design on, what employee at Nintendo might have hair like those?).

    Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

    Among the various good aspects of Bowser’s Fury, one that I really like is how it gives Plessie the spotlight it well deserved by making it the main mean of transport between the islands. Just look how awesome it is! Let’s hope it returns to stay with the main cast this time and doesn’t become...

    It’s so good! Starts as techno music (makes sense considering Germany is well known for that genre) and then the second part... man do I like its theme! They’re going experimental with city BGM, hopefully they’ll be able to carry something in their next games as what is coming out is pretty...

    Well, Jr. is somewhat playable. Somebody please remind him he had the same moveset of Mario in Sunshine though, the little fellow is now firmly in his Jr. Clown Car as if he couldn’t do anything without it. Still, open world Mario looks definitely good, it was a very good idea to use this port...

    A few details of ranked cups: * every player is paired with different opponents. Unless the players are very few you’re likely not in the ranked cup list of the players in your list * contrary to popular belief, there aren’t many bots in there. They are usually the last 3 in each list. You now...

    About time we got to play as the helper Lakitu (note the green shell), the new course as shown in the in-game news is basically RMX Rainbow Road 2 (no point in calling the first one RMX Rainbow Road 1 if there wasn’t going to be a 2, after all) but hey, let’s just let them have some “rest” with...

    That Yoshi on Standard Kart is a fake, the original had him on the Standard Bike! (it’s also in the new modern style while the MK8 stamp is in the classic modern style, in case you wanted to compare the two styles) Also yay, new Baby Yoshi artwork! One is a remake of the Yoshi artwork: (but...

    I think the most interesting is the Bowser Jr. one as I don’t remember having seen that artwork before (and the Magic Paintbrush is always a welcome reference, but why does this one not have the logo of E. Gadd?). Also lol only now I realize that the colored Yoshi artwork were already in the...

    Interesting, Bowser has ●瞳のまわりY90 + M90, if I’m reading it correctly, he was meant to have red eyes in this artwork, and that’s indeed the color of his eyes in the same artwork in the NA manual of SMW. I wonder why in the various illustrations of the Japanese Official Nintendo Guidebook Bowser...

    No, it means that I hadn’t enough rubies to make a multi pull until I got 2nd place at the first ranked cup. The special pipes last until Thursday, so a day after the first ranked cup ends.

    Heh, getting Black Yoshi from the Throwback Drivers Pipe was quite the conundrum - I literally had to get second place in a ranked cup to get him -, I’m not sure if I want another paywalled Yoshi, a Super eventually given in the Token Shop will do for me. Speaking of Yoshi, I was doing a...

    Well, unless you’re saving for an alt you know they’re coming or you don’t have any ruby left and you’d need to pay real money, which is something I think you should not do on this game, never skip Coin Box drivers. Coin Box is by far the best special item in ranked cups, giving you almost...

    Paper Mario: The Origami King

    In my opinion, The Origami King didn’t really build on top of the strengths of Color Splash - I’d say that is more a narrative due to how few was Color Splash actually played. Color Splash had elements of the Wii U era - e.g. the Koopalings using weapons similar to the NSMBU weapons, Draggadon...

    He makes even more sense in Italy where Santa Claus is known as Daddy Christmas. How not to accept his gem-filled present? (also he’s a Coin Box driver so he’ll be the best in every one of his unique favorite courses, yay!)

    Well, that’s interesting, so far the New folder only contained city courses. The layout goes the extra mile too imo, with those three settings (village, industrial/mining area, gift box mountain) and that downhill slope with a half-pipe at the top. Also Reindeer Yoshi💚 and a mysterious green...

    Yeah, but as I said before, two High-End drivers were recently given away for free: Metal Mario was in the Event Shop of the 1st Anniversary Tour, which was based on tokens you can’t buy, only collect on the courses Ice Mario was in last week’s Tier Shop, he costed 12000 Coins but every player...
