    What Will Happen Once Donkey Kong Becomes Public Domain?

    This new year kicked off one of the biggest deals of our era: Steamboat Willie entering the public domain. This means that people are allowed to freely use the images of the cartoon without Disney's permission. Even better, people are allowed to use Mickey, Minnie, and Pete. Of course, it's...

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    Adding on to this, I recently played Diddy's Kong Quest and I happened to enjoy the game much more. It's usual that an agreement that this game is actually good but it adds to my belief why DKC1 is a bad game. Simply put, DCK2 has much better level design. Using your partner to collect things...

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    I recently played Donkey Kong Country 1 and I actually didn't enjoy it. Keep in mind, I played the SNES version with savestates (NOS) and even used a cheat code to give me 50 lives and it was still frustrating. The thing about DKC1 is that it's a little... I guess clunky? Like, the tree top...

    MarioWiki Poll Discussion

    Alright, I'll talk about the new voices. Firstly, I want to judge the voices from a regular perspective (AKA, does the voice sound good in general) and from a perspective of the Super Mario franchise. I wish Wario was mentioned in this poll, but I will also bring him up because his voice is...

    MarioWiki Poll Discussion

    Alright, I'll talk about the whole "text" thing. So I'm not into the Super Mario RPGs that much, mainly because I'm not a fan of RPGs in general. But, I did pay attention to the fact that some of the text for the upcoming Super Mario RPG remake was changed. Notably, changing Princess Toadstool...

    jan Misali's new "How many Super Mario games" survey

    I mean, it's an edit of Super Mario Bros. I've seen people jokingly refer to it as an "official ROM hack", so that's why I did it. Yeah, I do think the survey could've used much more work. I understand that there are people who have a different belief on "canon" for the Super Mario franchise...

    jan Misali's new "How many Super Mario games" survey

    So with the recent release of Super Mario Bros. Wonder, there is now coming a new survey by YouTuber jan Misali on the subject of how many Super Mario series games are there now. For those unfamiliar with who jan Misali is, they are a YouTube channel that doesn't really have a theme. They are...

    What toggleable options would you add in a Mario (or Mario-adjacent) series?

    Oh boy, I saw this and got pretty excited. So here are a few things I can mention regarding certain Super Mario games. I feel it's really important because a lot of Nintendo's older Super Mario games aren't that accessible. I'm mainly talking about Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, and...

    Super Mario Bros. Wonder

    I have no idea why I haven't preordered this game yet since it was already preorder viable on its first trailer. But here are some random thoughts. So, firstly, we get yet another game where Peach is not kidnapped. I like it when Bowser does something different, and I hope each Super Mario game...

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    So I was just playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and I have to be honest, it's not as good as everyone makes it to be. Don't get me wrong; I do not consider this game overrated. It deserves all the praise it gets, but playing it can be painful. In what way? Well, not necessarily the game itself but...

    MarioWiki Poll Discussion

    Yeah, Super Mario Bros. Wonder is what I wanted from a 2D Mario platformer. A game with unique and distinct themes and not the same generic ones we saw repeatedly. There are some tiny little touches, too, such as more playable characters. The thing that got me was the talking flower. Mainly...

    MarioWiki Poll Discussion

    When it comes to LEGO Mario sets, they kinda don't pique my interest. I always wanted to buy them but they look very complicated. I prefer to have sets that are basically displays as opposed to games. We also haven't gotten minifigures which is my big complaint with the sets. I do like the...

    The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023)

    Warning: This is a 21 minute speech. All the acts are divided up in spoilers. Pre-Movie: So I've wanted to talk about this movie for a while now. Before getting started, I'll say this movie is a 5/5. And a deserved one because this movie had the potential to suck. But ultimately, Illumination...

    Bad Mario References

    Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong appears in this game. Mario Bros.: The game has two characters, Donkey and Diddy Kong, similar to Mario and Luigi. Super Mario Bros.: How enemies are defeated is identical to how Mario stomps on enemies. Kritters being defeated by stomping on them is...

    Bad Mario References

    So for those who use the Super Mario Wiki, we have sections dedicated to references within and outside the series. However, likely due to eager fans, we have gotten some pretty laughable connections over the years. For a good example, look at these former edits on the List of Mario references in...
