  1. I've decided not to bother with the 3DS Bowser's Inside Story remake. (Think Luigi's Mansion might be my swan song for the system) But I will say Fawful's new theme is AAA.

    1. Adamabba


      If I do ever play BiS again I'll probably just get the DS version

    2. Forte-Metallix



      Yeah, you're really not missing anything from the newer one, though it did add some new music tracks I recommend looking up.

    3. Adamabba


      Good God... I just found out they replaced the amazing title screen music. 

    4. Harkofthewaa


      Yeah, my thing is that it's kinda stupid that we got a remake on a system that can run the game being remade. It would be like buying Twilight Princess HD for your Wii U and then setting next to your copy of the Wii version. 


      Also I really hate the blurry artstyle they've been using for the last few games. I liked the super squeaky clean pixel art of the first three games and as of M&L: Dream Team they abandoned it for a muddy mess. Point being I think overall the game looks worse than the original.


  2. Time for Episode "7"- this time with stop-motion!
  3. New Mania Adventures "short"!


    1. TheOcelot





      SOS 🤔 

    2. Milo


      I wonder who did the (rather limited) animation for that?

      It also does make me want to see a Sonic game in a similar "paper" style, not gonna lie.

  4. latest?cb=20190116015354

    I feel this render has a lot of editing/caption potential.

      Same energy?

    6. Ellipsis-Ultima


      This is him displaying Metal Sonic I swear

  5. I was hoping Orbot and Cubot would share a kart like the Chao, but this is alright. Eggman and Metal Sonic were shoe-ins even before the leaks and tie-in comic, but I still don't care for the D6. Here's hoping we at least get a reason for Zavok and Eggman working together again. (Did he finally get that magic conch shell back?)
  6. Now they're making a Just Dance movie. Why not?


    We could've gotten Klonoa or Sly Cooper, but nooooooooooo~

    1. MarioAmigosYT


      this is a horrible timeline... please make it a TV Movie instead...

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      I'm surprised that Ubisoft are still persuing this considering what happened to Assassin's Creed and this is from Sony's budget range studios that focus on lesser known movies (with their higher successes being the Resident Evil films) but then again...

      We have to remember how well Mamma Mia 2 did. Have some famous songs and maybe a few famous actors, it'll take off but most of us here wouldn't be the target audience for it.

  7. Forget Pauline; THIS is the best character we could've gotten! "Hey everyone! We've pulled the video about the potential data mine earlier of a new DLC character in Mario Tennis Aces as we've since received evidence that the entire thing may have been fabricated. We're not 100% confident in that information, but to prevent the spread of potential (and likely) misinformation, pulling the video seemed to be for the best. Sorry for anyone who got their hopes up in the event it doesn't come to fruition!" That's disappointing, but at least Gamexplain is willing to admit they might've been wrong instead of trying to drag it out in a desperate attempt to save face. One of the main reasons why they're my favorite gaming news channel.
  8. Just watched the premiere of Brainscratch's Twilight Princess commentary.

    Link and Epona are now "s-senpai" and "b-baka", respectively, and Ted has finally seen the light and gotten into Zelda.

    1. Adamabba


      yayy they're doing a game i care about again

  9. I don't know why I find this old promo art so amusing, but...


    1. Osmium


      Probably because the perspective makes absolutely no sense 

    2. Heckboy


      >sonic's feet


    3. Osmium


      That was a common trope for US Sonic art. That's honestly the least of this drawing's problems. 

    4. Heckboy


      I love how Sonic is just like running through space for some reason

    5. Osmium


      Knuckles has no left hand 

    6. Heckboy
  10. Oh, goody- The Switch is finally getting SNES games.

    Now if only we could move up a console generation or two and, y'know, actually get a decent online service.

    1. DanJ86


      Well...Stunt Race FX is a nice nostalgic surprise.

      But would it kill Nintendo to show some love for the GameCube??

    2. DarkRula


      Well, maybe they can show some love for the Gamecube now. If they're able to work in online into the GCN games, it'd give those multiplayer games some value. No idea how you'd go about that, though I'm sure Nintendo could rig something together using the LAN connection some of these games had.

    3. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      At least it's a start with some good stuff. Still blooming Super Formation Soccer. No one wants to play that still, not even out of nostalgia...

      As for the GC... The problem with Gamecube games is that I see Nintendo selling each game separately rather than put them on an online service. They did it for Wind Waker, they did it for Luigi's Mansion, they did a trilogy for Metroid Prime (even if the 3rd game is on the Wii), Wii versions of Mario Power Tennis, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat and the two Pikmin games. Mostly full price and still sold them. Pac-Man Vs is already on the Switch. Then there's Resident Evil REmake, 0 and 4 are all coming to the Switch as well as a remake of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles so that would definitely mean no GC Online service. Even if they did there's the issue with analog triggers with a few games, Mario Sunshine in particular.

    4. DarkRula


      For those that need changes, I accept that they won't appear. But putting the likes of Mario Kart: Double Dash or the Pokemon games where there's very little to add or change makes sense.

  11. So what do you think Joker's tagline will be?

    1. Milo


      "we live in a society" or something like that

      or am i thinking of the wrong joker

    2. TheOcelot


      "how about a magic trick"

    3. Adamabba


      "believes that what doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger!"

  12. Honestly, I doubt he could even temporarily reform. Since Eggman removed all the disobedience from his coding, Metal can't do anything against Eggman's wishes even if he wanted to- Hence why he was going to hand over the world to Eggman after conquering it himself. Metal just reasoned with himself that one-upping Sonic was enough of a personal goal. But even if Eggman was dead as this point, Metal still wouldn't be free. To paraphrase his speech to the Grandmasters in Archie's Scrambled: "You thought I would grant any of you freedom in my demise?! I OWN you! You will serve this empire until the day you die! Or until I grow tired of you. Same thing in the end." While seeing him try to build his own identity a la Shard would be neat, I think Gemerl already fits that niche just fine.
  13. Japan's getting a neat bundle for Yoshi's Crafted World. (Still want new amiibo, tho)


    1. MarioAmigosYT


      Is that the first time that Sanei and Nintendo officially made a bundle together?

  14. It would be if he was a separate character from Yellow. As is, it does nothing to address the problem of 4-player co-op giving at least one player an unfair advantage. (And Luigi U's even worse, since Mario's excluded)
  15. Dunno if I'll pick up the Bowser's Inside Story remake, but at least we got a remaster of this line:

    It is I who nuts to that text

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Not sure if I wanna pick up the remake either. It's aged much better than Superstar Saga and honestly really didn't need remade.

  16. Oh, look- a new TSR track:

    ...And by new, I mean it's a reused one from Transformed.

    1. Adamabba


      It's a remix, they didn't just pull the same track from ASRT

    2. Forte-Metallix



      Sorry, I meant RACE track, not music.

    3. Dejimon11


      And it's the weakest track too 

  17. New photos of F4F's Classic Super Sonic and Amy figures:


    1. DanJ86


      I imagine @Sonic Fan J would like to see the Amy figure.

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Guilty as charged @-dan-. Of course though I've only ever had the funds for the six pack of minifigs as F4F's pricing is well above my tax bracket in most cases and then I don't have the room for figures either so I'll just have to enjoy this picture for now. On the other hand I am glad to see it looks like they are still doing Sonic figures since they were talking about stopping if sales didn't meet a certain mark.

  18. Just once I'd like to see a Yoshi platformer with a new villain. As good as Crafted World looks, I groaned a bit when I saw Kamek and Baby Bowser.

    Just because Mario's been piggybacking off Yoshi for years doesn't mean he has to do the same.

    1. Dejimon11


      Yeah it's weird for a Mario spinoff that tries to differentiate itself from the main series I'd like to see an original villain for once

    2. Adamabba


      the yoshi series is incredibly safe now. i couldnt enjoy wooly world at all

    3. JosepHenry


      These Yoshi games shouldn't even exist tbh, I seriously don't see what it does better than Kirby. 

    4. DanJ86


      It was easy to understand his motive to capture Peach. (Though I have to admit, I didn't make the connection that Bowser has a crush on Peach until it was practically openly stated in the first Paper Mario.) But why does his younger self keep kidnapping children?

      Are we supposed to believe that Kamek saw some divine future of Mario preventing Bowsers plans and has since been bent on capturing him? Bowser is pretty persistent, he and Yoshi would be destined for an eternal battle like Link, Zelda and Ganon in another franchise. It is a shame that they don't branch out with new villains or even bring back a one hit wonder or promote a random lackey to antagonist. Maybe like...Birdo?

      Hell, maybe even throw in a curve ball and have King K. Rool appear as the antagonist, posing as Bowser.

      For a company that demands every new instalment bring in some innovation, they don't innovate as much with stories.

      Side note: Didn't Baby Mario, Baby Peach, Baby Wario and Baby Donkey Kong all appear in the same Yoshi game? Doesn't that mean the four of them are practically the same age? Whatever Peach and DK have been taking to remain youthful should've really been shared with Mario and Wario. o_0

    5. Dejimon11


      @JosepHenry It took the best part of super mario world and turned into a full fledge game. That's a justification for it's existence. 

      @-dan- Mario is like 24 so everybody is practically the same age


      Except DK that's confusing and it's best we ignore it


    6. Forte-Metallix



      Yeah the plot of Yoshi's Island is that Kamek's crystal ball showed him how the Koopas were destined for a lifetime of defeats at Mario and Luigi's hands, causing him to try to change his fate but ultimately ensure it. And according to Yoshi's Island DS, Luigi and Yoshi (The one in modern titles) are also the same age as those four babies. (And since that Baby DK is Modern Donkey Kong, I think Nintendo's going back on the idea of the original DK being Cranky)

      Going back to the villain issue, I'd even take Kamek acting on his own. I'm sick of the final boss always being Bowser in some way, shape, or form.

    7. JosepHenry



      I refer to the Story game and after that, I don't count Yoshi's Island, that game is perfect.... I just don't understand why wouldn't they remove the energy and difficulty of the game. Now is just boring. Even the music bores me to tears when YI had the Atlethic Theme.

    8. Adamabba


      ^all i know about the soundtrack is that this is a banger

  19. New trailer detailing the story, along with a confirmed March 29 release: Now Yoshi's gotta get all those emerdoods to pay off Knuckles before he rats him out to the IRS.
  20. Finally saw Spider-Verse.

    I laughed, I cried, I geeked out at all the in-jokes, and the artstyle gave me a new spark of hope for the animation industry.

    My new favorite superhero film.

  21. Been out of town these past few days, so happy (late) New Year!

      Man, Squirtle sure got a weird redesign for Ultimate.

  23. Finally beat one of the hardest Spirit Battles through blatant cheating.

    The Donkey Kong and Lady challenge, where you have to kill a giant DK in 75M in about 1:30, with a Peach ally whom you can't let die.

    Went up top first thing, threw a Launch Star at the big ape (I have a Luma spirit that lets you start a match with one), and watched him repeatedly walk into it and get sent flying until he passed the blast zone.

    Best new item confirmed.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Don't remember that one too well. If I remember right I beat him in two hits in like 10 seconds.
