    Wowie Zowie! Let's talk about Super Mario Bros Wonder!

    What do you mean 'What is Wowie and/or Zowie'? Don't you remember the popular catchphrase Mario and Friends all the time always say? You call yourself a fan! Anyway, this is coming out Oct and Nintendo just did a Direct with a bunch of new info. Doesn't seem to be an official cut-down...

    The Mario Musicdome Nomination Thread: Mamma Mia!

    Mario. We all love him. He is the #1 mascot for video games. Now it's time to celebrate the music of the games that feature our plumber jump man. So: 1) Submit up to 4 tracks of your choosing by November 30th. 2) The tracks must be from a video game and that game must have Mario's name in the...

    Tell Me About Vs. Super Mario Bros.

    You know, the arcade port of SMB1. I'm curious about it. I know it's harder than the home version, with rarer extra lives, fewer powerups, trickier obstacles, etc. But has anybody here got any really serious opinions about the difference? Any of y'all ever waxed philosophical about it, or done...

    Super Mario in SMB 1

    Is the 1-block high starter Mario in Super Mario Bros. a small person, or is Super Mario a giant?

    Mario 35 is actually really great

    So it turns out I'm basically the best Mario 35 player of all time, and I never would have known this if they didn't release Mario 35. I shouldn't give away all of my secrets, but I like you guys, so here we go. First, this is kind of obvious, but the goal is to be the last one standing. You...

    LttP: Super Mario Odyssey - "That's my secret, Cap. I'm always platforming."

    I started this up last night after getting 120 stars in Mario Galaxy, and I'm having a good time with it. I'm hoping there's eventually some sort of guide to how many moons there are in each zone - I know there's supposedly a lot of moons in the whole game, but having unfrozen the ice in the...

    When you start a stage in Mario 64, Mario says "PICKLE"

    Change my mind Also, I now have the damn hootenanny music from Rainbow Ride permanently stuck in my head and it turns out there's yet another way to destroy vampires

If you have any creations you’re particularly proud of, or even if you’ve come across other people’s levels that you especiallyplease post them here! Mods: I wasn’t sure whether this...

    What's wrong with New Super Mario Bros.?

    Well, really nothing's wrong with them per se. I've long been a defender of this sub-series. NSMB Wii is a superbly designed platformer, and since it's about 60% the same game as NSMB U, so is that one. NSMB2's quirky score attack gimmick goes a long way to shoring up its more perfunctory...

    Super Mario 35th Anniversary Direct: Oh god, I'm old now... *hyperventilates*

    Super Mario 3D World+ next Spring isn't surprising... a Tetris 99 Mario battle royale? That's surprising!

    It'sa me, Kaizo Mario!

    A funny thing has happened to me in recent years: I've started to take more and more enjoyment in mastering games I love, rather than trying to play as many different games as possible. It's probably my son't fault, to a certain extent, since he'll ask me to play the same game over and over...

    It's time to fold a new Paper Mario: the Origami King thread.

    It's the new Mario game starring that mustache guy, Red Luigi! I know people have been talking about it on Ye Olden Lande, but I figured I'd make a thread here to keep discussion going, because no seriously guys the game is pretty good.
