    Originals vs Remakes

    That's really up to you. Fundamentally, it's the same game. The Switch version has portability and a few extra characters (really just easy modes in disguise) and I guess there's the fact that you're not forced to play as Mario in Deluxe. I would still probably go for the Wii U version if...

    Originals vs Remakes

    I mean if you're not using multiplayer then you should get Deluxe for portability. Single player doesn't really have drawbacks here.

    Originals vs Remakes

    SMB1: Each version has its ups and downs. I'd personally recommend Deluxe, but if cropped camera bothers you (which is definitely understandable), go for the NES. SMB2: Go for GBA. Only played the NES version but the physics are horrid on that and I've heard that the GBA makes various...

    Your favorite Kirby game?

    Star Allies is my fave, after having played all mainline Kirby games except Triple Deluxe and Planet Robobot. Return to Dream Land is a close second. As for spin-offs, Rainbow Curse is an easy winner.

    What are your notable Mario experiences this decade?

    2010: Being the year following the Christmas I got my Wii, this was essentially the birth of my passion for gaming. I played my earliest Mario games during this timespan: Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Mario Party 8. I made some of my fondest memories with Mario and with my...

    Mario Boards CLUE - Gaining interest

    Hey, this sounds really cool! I'd definitely be up for it. I think the rules are clear enough, at least to someone who has played the original Clue. Only thing I'm wondering is...you would move directly from room to room, right? Not rolling dice and moving through corridors?

    Has Mario taught you anything?

    Thanks to Mario Party 8, I say "thrice" instead of the unnecessarily long "three times". More people should use the word "thrice", it's so much more convenient... Also it taught me a good deal about momentum. Speed makes you jump higher! And another thing: black holes are deadly. Thanks...

    Frozen II As someone who disliked the first movie for its cheesy plot and hit-or-miss soundtrack, this was actually pretty dang amazing. It surprised me. And believe me, it's very rare when I call a sequel movie better than the original.

    It's a fantastic game. Especially when you have a group of worthy rivals to play with. Just be warned for long play sessions because you can't save in multiplayer.

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    Island Tour says yes, NSMB and MP10 say no. Conflicting reports here. My personal headcanon is that, after NSMB, Kamek saw the potential in a skeletal Bowser and created a species of skeletal Bowser clones (with the Island Tour one being one of them).

    It's a cheaper alternative for those that don't have/don't use a TV for gaming. Kinda like the 2DS before it. It may not appeal to you but there is a market for it.

    You know, looking through official social media accounts of fictional characters is pretty fascinating. Especially when two different accounts document the same event from different perspectives. Really adds a unique layer of world-building.

    Banjo Kazooie thread

    I started playing Banjo-Kazooie today, it's pretty fun. Camera can be buggy at times but it plays fairly well and I've been enjoying it. Right now I have eight puzzle pieces in Mumbo's Mountain. Also Kazooie's hilarious and I can definitely relate to Banjo.

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    I think you misunderstood my point. I think it's a great thing that they used established characters as partners. But I also think that it's an unfair advantage when comparing them to other partners in the series. Of course they're great; they had more than one game to develop a personality in.

    Finally, someone agrees. I've always felt that enemy tattles are an indispensable tool for new enemies, and that field tattles are an important part of the game's overall personality.
