I sometimes go on ebay and just peruse and ponder getting a Virtual Boy, simply to be able to play that game.

This is a thing I do.

It's a tragedy that the 3DS never had Virtual Boy ports to get the good ones out of limbo.

You're not wrong, but if you can find it cheap enough it's still a neat game to play through at least once just 'cuz of how weird the bosses can get.

I've never been able to get into them, either. I think because the first one was subtitled Super Mario Land 3 I was expecting it to be a faster-paced game like the Mario platformers. Instead it felt slow and more like a puzzle game. I always end up getting bored and quitting after a few stages.

The King Knight DLC for Shovel Knight is kind of a Wario Land, right?

Shovel Knight is extremely good, and its DLC campaigns take it in all sorts of goofy directions. It is its own excellent thing, but it's got more Mega Man in its DNA than anything else. The upcoming and final campaign gives you a character who appears to have Wario's tackle and Mario's spin-jump.

Switch.

Serious answer: I like it best on 3DS, because the stereoscopic effects are very pretty and the exactitude of the resolution means there are no subpixel alignment issues. If the idea of a serious platformer on a portable does you wrong, go with Wii U, as you can pick up an amiibo and try out the co-op mode.

I got it on 3DS and didn't look back, but I may yet get it on Switch or PC. We'll see.

...and I also don't really have anyone to play a co-op platformer with. My wife is hilariously bad at NSMB Wii and Wii U, holy crap. 3DS it is!

also the bottom screen can be used in a zelda-style item select menu, which is quite helpful sometimes

Buy Shovel Knight on every platform

Also Wario Land is great and Wario is the only man I have ever respected

2 is my favorite but 4 is definitely the most meticulously designed. Read this nearly 800-page book to find out more!*

The design doc for Shake Dimension was a single sentence: "What if Wario Land 4 but predictable and mundane?"

I'm all-in for an internally developed Wario Land 5 helmed by former R&D1 folks, though.

Make Wario Weird Again.

Wario was born weird, and Wario games are at their best when they truly embrace the weird. Shake Dimension played things too safe, less like a Wario game and more like if Wario got randomly stuck in one of those 80s fantasy cartoons marketed towards girls...but nowhere near as awesome as that concept sounds.

Wario Blast did clearly demonstrate how well Wario can do just barging into any other franchise and antagonizing the shit out of its characters.

I think Wario would be a good pick for a pure adventure game or rpg or something not-action.

Like a big world with lots of opportunities to be greedy etc.

He's a character with a lot of character you know? A fun thing to role play mabye.

New concept for game or tv show: Wario and Waluigi travel from game world to game world, Captain N style, just causing mischief and generally fucking shit up.

ETA: I just pictured Wario vs. Scrooge McDuck in treasure-hunting and now I've never wanted anything more.

A pure "action" Wario Land title wherein Wario just bounces around Nintendo franchises with consistent Wario Land gameplay and wrecks up the place.
  • Wario stopping by 8-bit Zelda and shaking Link until rupees fall out.
  • Shoulder blasting Mario out of a castle as a secret prequel to Mario Land 2
  • The last Metroid is in captivity, the galaxy is at... hey, who just broke that glass capsule? Stay away from that! Don't feed the baby garlic!
  • Butt stomp arwings out of the sky
  • Publicly deny F-Zero ever existed
  • Return to Dreamland and... go out drinking with Dedede. They should be bros.

The possibilities are endless!

I liked Shake It for the cool cartoon style, and acquiring items with funny descriptions. Also, I'd barely played Wario Land 4 by that point.

The 3DS's biggest failing is not having a Virtual Boy Virtual Console. Watch them try it on Switch or something instead. =P

Oh, and I love Waluigi and Wario's bits in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games; explores the former's character a bit more than we usually get to see:

How I wish Super Bomberman R would collab with Nintendo on its DLC characters...

Yeah, it's really a shame that Wario's never been in the RPGs. The closest we've gotten was Booster in Super Mario RPG, and a (sadly cut) cameo in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga's coffee shop.

Guy's just lucky he got a palette swap for Mario in TTYD.

Is this even a possibility anymore? Do we need to abduct them from the past to save the future?

Because there isn't anywhere near enough Wario fan-characters.

If they can put Knuckles in Sonic 1, they can put Dribble and Spitz in WL4.
