    Well, now that everyone experienced the awesomeness of Mr. Zero, it's time for Wolf O'Donnell Leon to shine!

    Albert Uderzo, one of the original illustrators for Asterix, dies at 92

    I have the original three Asterix animated movies, as well as the three slightly newer animated movies (the series with the Great Britain movie, bar the American one), they’re great! They also had a great Italian dubbing, with the Romans speaking in Roman dialect! I’ve seen them many times in my...

    Mario Kart Tour FCs and invites

    If somebody is willing, I think these weeks I'll keep a friend room open from 1:30 AM to 2:00 AM CET, from Monday till Thursday. I think I'll keep the rules above, but if you want different rules, just ask!

    I was thinking that Iggy’s light blue circles in the eyes are his irises and not the reflections in the glasses, effectively here they are covered by the eyelids, further pointing how they’re supposed to be irises. I’m wondering who drew this image, maybe the same one who drew the artwork for...

    My friend code is: 715528435863 Since we need to have friend races for the challenges, if someone wants to have them this night I’d go with a few races at 1 AM CET. The rules would be the following: * 150cc * 2 items * no COM racers I’ll have to quit pretty much every other race as the...

    Mario Kart Tour

    Yeah, Hammer Bro is faced as giant boss in one of the challenges, after 12 years he’s finally in Mario Kart! He’s the second really new character of Mario Kart Tour, by the way (considering how Peachette is just Toadette with a powerup). Plus two pipe launches are nice since I’ve been saving...

    Mario Kart Tour

    That a London-based Tour is named after an unrelated baby character is... unexplicable? Is it some in-game joke since Baby Rosalina is unrelated to the actual young Rosalina of the storybook and therefore the perfect unrelated character?

    I mean, when I look at Mario Kart 8 for Wii U that for like 60 € + DLC (weren’t they like 12 € for 16 tracks + drivers and vehicle parts?) got you unlimited multiplayer without paywalls the Nintendo Switch Online first and this are now in a wholly different light: NSO makes you pay double the...

    The new Tour will be based on the Mario Bros. https://www.twitter.com/mariokarttourEN/status/1230854692801937410 Two interesting things: * This is the first non-world-tour-based Nitro track * Since the Winter Tour we had 3 new R/T variants of existing courses added per Tour, this will be the...

    I actually like that a lot too, even more than the original! It’s a “short & chunky” Chinese dragon version of Gobblegut and it turned out very well in my opinion!

    And now for an oddity I talked about on Discord: around in 2015, Nintendo for some reason decided to silently update Yoshi's design, changing some features. This updated design didn't even end up in 3D models, so far. And after all, you can see by looking at the changes appllied why they didn't...

    Mario Kart Tour

    Too bad that they never optimized the game for 1 GB of RAM devices so that the game miserably dies when trying to load the third track on my iPhone 6, still so far I saw actually decent handling of lag, let’s see if they can surpass the lollow bar that was MK8...

    Well, it’s the Super Mario Galaxy Ice Mario, as shown by his skating pose. Pretty odd considering it’s the NSMB one who throws Ice Balls, but hey, nice that SMG is being referenced as well!

    From what I understand, you can actually trick the system by using the going backward button in Time Trials, no luck doing so in multiplayer online races, though. This wil result in a disconnection. Speaking of tricking the system, I actually discovered a few shroomless cuts in Mario Kart Tour...

    This is not a coincidence, as 3D Land in itself wanted to bring an experience similar to that of the 2D games, still the apparent lack of tanuki tails and Biddybuds seems to tell me it’s not exactly 3D Land. It’s a joke, actually - we should rather say that the NSMB games look like that because...

    Latest on Super Nintendo World

    I'll be honest, when I saw at the trailer I thought all the time at @Wicked Clown-nak and his fear of NSMBification of the Mario franchise. Here it's literally "you're in the Mario world but FOOLED YOU! It's not the one of Super Mario Odyssey, it's the one of NSMB!" Well, at least Toadette and...

    Mario Kart Tour

    I always liked how Super Circuit used the more realistic drifting and skidding mechanics of Super Mario Kart while being more controllable than the latter - if you didn’t use Wario. As an aside, it had amazing track settings as shown by Sky Garden (Cloudtop Cruise in the West), Cheese Land and...

    Mario Kart Tour

    Considering the post in the game, this is N64 Frappe Snowland. And it looks very different from the N64 and DS version. I find it nice that Tour is finally releasing 3D retro tracks that were remade from scratch, I hope this trend continues.

    Mario Kart Tour

    Honestly, when playing as pure f2p, it’s better to just save 450 rubies so that the spotlight characters are certainly obtained. No luck for Red Yoshi, though, as not even a full pipe can warrant obtaining it - there’s a reason why those characters are sold for real money...

    Mario Kart Tour

    Well, that was true until MKDS, due to manual Mini-Turbo charging creating a very high skill cap. Since then however Nintendo opted for a more user-friendly approach. We usually think of MKW as a competitive game due to its competitive community, but fon’t forget that MKW was the first game with...

    Yup it’s him Ah, too bad they didn’t keep the SMW design, oh well... Looks at the bell Looks intensely at the bell Despite being an exclusively f2p player, saves 90 rubies for him starting way before he was announced even though that is a meager 20% chance of getting him

    Mario Kart Tour

    More seriously, they got the pacing wrong: right now we have little new content while for a few tours we got many new tracks and characters. Those were the ones already in the beta of course, still they give the impression that less and less content will be added, while probably the newer...

    Looks at Plessie and the Green Sprixie Princess missing from MK8 and at Glydon who has been MIA since SMO If there is a game that could get them, it’s surely this dreadful mobile spin-off.

    Mario Kart Tour

    Yeah, it's the beta test which is restricted, not necessarily the feature as a whole. I guess "thanks" to the price and the Gold Pass bug - for some reason many people are unable to subscribe -, they don't have many subscribers so the matchmaking server won't die miserably. Speaking of...

    Mario Kart Tour

    Well, Mario Kart is a very powerful brand now (we had Mario Kart - not just Mario! - chocolate Easter Eggs in Italy this year!), so you can see it gaining a lot of recurring elements to make it easy to recognize. What I didn't expect is that basically all the games developed directly by Nintendo...

    Mario Kart Tour

    The game is lolful in its aggressive monetization strategies (200cc locked behind Gold Pass, preferred characters and parts so you need to pay to have great outcomes, limit on how many coins and points for the characters and parts you can get) and the controls can get in the way a lot of times...

    Very sad to read this.

    By the way, for some rather obscure reason, in the update they actually added the online play button, with a message stating that the feature will be added in a future update. The pay2winness of the Blue Falcon in MK8 is “finally” getting topped?

    I'm still wondering why they kep the name Switch, at least in the case of the 2DS they changed the name to reflect 3D was gone, whereas wtih the Lite you can Switch to... what? In any case, I think this shows how Nintendo was first and foremost aiming at creating a portable Wii U with the...

    Rehaving the same brainwashed Koopalings plot doesn't look too enticing to me, hopefully it's just a red herring and this time the plot doesn't revolve around rescuing them from brainwashing... again.

    He's still called a Daimaō? Yes he is! Does Daimaō mean Great Demon King? That is the typical translation, and I think a few or even many fans of the West like to call him like that, although as thankfully Clyde Mandelin well explained in his article, the term is actually way more tricky.
