    winstein's art that are hardly a looker

    The Closest Enemy of Them All This is a short comic I made that is partially inspired by one of Mario's quotes in the Mario Press Conference which is about Mario Sports Mix. In particular, Mario said this after he was asked about the allegations that he and Bowser teamed up from time to time...

    Does Rosalina get too much love?

    I felt that Rosalina has the benefit of being Koizumi's creation, who seemingly loves her, so I won't be surprised if he's had a hand in putting her in a few Super Mario games beyond the two Galaxy games. I think it helped that developers saw potential in her recurring status, which would be why...

    Yeah, that is really great! Not perfect, as I would've liked the other spinoffs to be included like the Gamecube game and the Wonderswan platformer. Still, those RPGs are already rather meaty so it's hard to complain. Thank you for reading.

    Do you think Bowser will be a playable in Sparks of hope?

    It would appear that my guess is correct, where Bowser will be playable so it might mean that there won't be a "Bowser hijacking the final boss spot" moment, unlike the first Mario + Rabbids where Bowser's only appeared as the final boss (albeit possessed). Thank you for reading.

    Reminds me of the time I beat Sonic 1 (Game Gear) on the PDA. Those PDAs have a tiny analogue stick to which you control Sonic, as well as a button where you can press to make Sonic jump. The game's difficult meant that I usually used save states to beat it, so I can't say that I did it the...

    post any random Mario thought on your mind

    Speaking of Origami King, I just heard that that game has an achievement system where if you finish the game based on certain criteria, you get some special icons. One of them is the "no Game Over", which is pretty intense for some segments like the Snifit quiz and the boat ride. I may think...

    Most Notable Mario Fanart? [Sourcing your images are encouraged]

    It's actually the other way around: Luigi's Mansion takes the Mario render from Mario Golf. Luigi's Mansion in general has the oddity where some models are clearly based on the Nintendo 64 era (Luigi's in-game model) and some are modern (Mario's in-game model and Luigi's official render) Thank...

    Do you think Bowser will be a playable in Sparks of hope?

    I have a feeling that Bowser will be playable, since Bowser is one of the most popular Mario characters. The Mario series has a tendency to put Bowser as the final boss, and if he's not the final boss, he will be an ally. So for example, besides the first Mario + Rabbids, there are Paper Mario...

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    I have no problem with Waluigi being created as a partner for Wario in Mario Tennis, even though as far as Mario spinoffs go, Mario Tennis had the vibe of being in the lower rung of spinoff importance. For one, it's fine for a character to be introduced as a partner, since both Luigi and...

    winstein's art that are hardly a looker

    The Two Big M's in Entertainment The Mario and Mickey partnership is one of the more notable crossovers, given how both of them are one of the famous characters in their respective mediums even with how cartoony they are. There was one fan art on DeviantArt (it's gone unless a web archive...

    Video game series collections you want to see

    Mega Man Battle Network collection is indeed missing, though those games also tend to be the longest by virtue of being RPGs. It is my most favourite Mega Man series so I'd be up for that. As for my contribution, I think I would like a Pikmin collection and in my personal opinion, should have...

    Video game music that slaps for no reason

    This game is The Morning Adventure, which is unique is that it is made to promote the Spanish product, basically a bread with chocolate dots. Indeed, this GBA game was made and licensed by Nintendo, and the music is very melodious even though there are only a handful of them, which are all in...

    What Movies Have You Seen Recently?

    The Isle of Dogs What I knew about the film beforehand is that it has some brilliant use of puppetry or stop-motion, similar to The Fantastic Mr. Fox adaptation, which makes it a very visually pleasing film. The film itself is rather suspenseful even though I don't understand Japanese, and the...

    Golfing with the Underdog The original sketch was done many years ago, when Mario Tennis Aces was released but not Mario Golf: Super Rush, which meant that the outfits for Daisy, Wario, and Waluigi were what I imagined they would dress like if they went golfing. The process was delayed until I...

    It's odd how Mario Party, despite being popular and one of the better selling Nintendo IPs, is very much isolated. Mario Kart is referenced in Super Mario (3D World has a level referencing Super Mario Kart) and Paper Mario (Luigi's modern portrayal is known to be driving a kart from Mario Kart...

    Mario images made by AI

    Unfortunately not what I was expecting when I keyed in the keywords "MarioWare Inc." Not that the images generated by the AI aren't already uncanny enough, but I decided to spoiler this one just in case. Again, unexpected results for what I thought would be a "WaToad". I guess this is a a...

    winstein's art that are hardly a looker

    The Exceptional Egghead First off, the title is a play on Sonic's title "The Blue Blur", applied to Robotnik due to its alliterativeness. One of the things I have realised is how the Robotnik designed by Milton Knight is the only version with conjoined eyes, like Sonic himself. Between...

    At least this card is a powerful Level 4 with 2000 ATK, because effect monsters have drawback effects at that power and level (e.g. Panther Warrior's Tribute cost to attack, Jirai Gumo's coin flip punishment to the user, Chainsaw Insect letting opponent draw cards if it's involved in battle...

    Mario Strikers: Battle League

    My mind wanders in some weird places, like for example, what if Peach was the one who get hit by the ball in the face instead. It seems to be precedented that women don't get this sort of abuse, like how the 60-second Mario quiz videos put Luigi in the distressed position instead of the expected...

    You think we'll be able to swap out Mario in Sparks of hope?

    Since I am always game for Mario, the restriction does not affect me. What it does affect in Kingdom Battle is how, because of Mario's mandatory slot, Rabbid Peach ended up feeling redundant over the long run because both have the same weapon, and Luigi is a somewhat better Sentry user (Sentries...

    One thing that gets me about the Golf characters in Mario Golf 64 is how the humans don't have the same Silicon Graphic renders that the Mario characters have, which seems to me like they knew these characters would be one-off, so they did not want to go through the effort for renders that are...

    The Donk at the Girder The title is basically a double meaning: Not only is Donkey Kong features in this image, but the event precedes the "donk" that will happen to poor Donkey Kong.

    post any random Mario thought on your mind

    Ironically, in Dr. Mario World, the baby and adults are considered variants so you can't use them together in the Skill Summit. For example, you can't use Mario when Baby Mario is the mentor. Yes, that means you can't use Luigi and Baby Luigi together. This makes the Baby Wario challenges...

    What "anti-Nintendo humor" games have you played before?

    In line with what the title suggests, I am going to go with Super Chick Sisters. To wit, this is more or less an anti-KFC game where the Colonel Sanders stand-in is a villain, but it also disparages Mario. The main characters are tasked to rescue Pamela Anderson with pink dress attire, and one...

    Welcome to Mario World! For this piece, it's my hitherto final piece in making Mario doing Wario things, this time imitating Wario bathing in his treasures in the Wario World box art, which is once again an idea suggested by @Striker Mario Boogaloo. The earlier idea was for Mario to be bathed...

    Personally, I felt that it's only a matter of time until she shows up. For Mario Party Superstars, Daisy was notably not shown in pre-release materials until the game's gotten closer to release, where she do in fact show up in one of them. It's kind of how despite being one of the standard...

    Which courses in Mario Kart 8 utilised anti-gravity well?

    Within Mario Kart 8, several courses utilised anti-gravity, which allows for racing on places that normally won't be drivable due to gravity, allowing for more uniquely-designed courses. The mechanic also has the perk in giving a slight boost when racers bump into each other or one of the posts...

    post any random Mario thought on your mind

    The cartoons very notably refrained from using their real names, so Peach is regularly referred as "Princess", while Bowser is regularly referred to as "King Koopa". The latter makes it notably simpler to mention that Bowser's cartoon incarnation is King Koopa, and to a lesser extent, the...

    Taking a while to finish, here is Winter Pastime at the Toad Residence, where Waluigi decided to sneakily throw a snowball to Mario, but he somehow sees this coming. Although Waluigi has often been billed as Luigi's rival, I think that is way too limiting of a character, and so in my opinion, he...

    Mario's Impromptu Roleplay on Wario says it all. It's Mario doing a bunch of Wario expressions, some with easy-to-get references, but some not so. I have long thought that it's hilarious to see Mario behave like Wario because Wario has a bunch of funny expressions, and Mario could benefit from...

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    I think part of what made Sonic comics more exciting by comparison is that while it might have a basic outline of plot (Sonic stops Eggman's domination plans), there is enough character in the main character as well as his supporting cast to make it feel worthwhile. Moreover, some of the comics...
