    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

    The Nintendo 3DS is dead. Long live the 3DS!

    Nintendo is apparently discontinuing the 3DS line, which brings to an end the dual screen era, one of my favorite eras of games. Let's talk about it here. I put the most hours into Animal Crossing, but Theatrhythm Curtain Call is one of the best games ever made and is also way up there. The RPG...

    If you play on Quickplay with nothing but Pokemon Balls and assist Trophies, you're a sick son of a bitch and I hate you personally.

    StarTropics is pretty hard

    I'm playing StarTropics for the first time ever. It's fun, in the way NES top-down action games are, but it is also pretty brutal (especially the bosses) and sometimes just mean. In the first dungeon, there is a secret room with a potion(?). From that room, you get to another secret room with...

    The Old Grey Brick, She Ain't What She Used To Be - A Game Boy Thread

    aka "Tegan won't shut the fuck up about buying Game Boy cartridges so we might as well contain it to one thread." So I'm gradually amassing a quality Game Boy library, focusing on -but not limited to- the GBA. Just this morning I put in a pre-order for Limited Run Games' reprint of the original...

    Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

    It's a prequel to Breath of the Wild that will show how our heroes completely beefed it against Ganon. Neat! So far Link, Zelda, and the four champions are all playable. Here's hoping they bring in non-BotW characters as well for other modes. They haven't announced if there will be other modes...

    Lies games have fed you: Pit (from Kid Icarus) is not based on Icarus, but on Eros.

    Despite what game name says, Pit —the main character from the Kid Icarus franchise— is not based on Icarus from Greek mythology (at least not originally), but on Eros (Greek)/Cupid (Roman). The original Japanese name for the game is A Mythology of Light: The Mirror of Palutena, and there is no...

    Making Marios: The Super Mario Maker 2 Thread

    I just picked up a copy of Mario Maker 2, and I’ve got a hankering to play some levels made by Talking Tyrants. 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...

    ASS OUT, IN-SERT - Ring Fit Adventure

    Just a thread to continue the Ring Fit Adventure talk from the old country and to ask all your most burning questions: Are squats worth having in your Fit Skills with the amount of them you do in stage traversal? What is the worst mini-game and why is it Squattery Wheel? What in the world are...

    The Nintendo Thread of Existential Doom

    Time for the general Nintendo thread! Discuss Nintendo Switch and beyond here. Speaking of beyond, Switch Pro rumors are making their rounds again.

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons Public Trading Thread Mk2!

    Same basic idea as the old thread: Let people know about junk you're interested in acquiring and maybe someone can help you out.
  16. Red Silvers

    Red will never 100% Hyrule Warriors (but let's talk about it anyway!)

    Hyrule Warriors came out on the Wii U in September 2014, and this game caught my eye immediately when I played the demo at Best Buy, enough that I immediately got the game and ordered all the DLC at that point (I think when I got the game, the Master Quest DLC had just been released). As an...

    Pokémon Generation VIII

    Sword and Shield came out late last year. Earlier this summer, in lieu of a "third version" or sequel, the Isle of Armor DLC was added; in the fall, we expect the Crown Tundra DLC.

    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.

    Waiting for Gadolt: LttP Xenoblade Chronicles

    Still chugging away, though I think I'm pretty close to the end. I'm in chapter 13. I've just realized how much the characters have grown on me. My level is mid-upper 50s right now. What is the average level for finishing the game?

    The Legend Of Zelda Mega-Thread: A Collection of Links

    So as noted elsewhere, BotW 2 is in active development. Anyone got some juicy details?
