Super Train Station H
Finally reached World S 8-♛ in Super Mario 3D Land!

After having owned the game since the day BEFORE its official release date back in 2011.

3D Land is my favorite 3D Mario game but I’m so slow with video games gosh.

Just when you thought “Thank You Mario, But Our Princess is in Another Castle” was the most rage inducing thing you’ve ever seen in a video game…
…then comes Zemina’s “Super Boy 1”, an unauthorized Super Mario Bros. clone for the MSX.
I don’t know, but there’s just something deeply infuriating about this. The game is like, flipping you off and sticking its tongue out at you all at once.
Its not even congratulating you for your ATTEMPT to free the Princess.
There’s no Toad thanking you and urging you to continue, there’s just….. nothing.

That’s really incredible to me is that they somehow went though the effort to use two words that weren’t even in the original text of the screen they were copying.

ME: What the hell did you guys expect, you asked for a new 3D Mario game and Nintendo showed you one, why are you mad? :/
INTERNET GUYS: OMFG STOP APOLOGIZING AND DAMAGE CONTROLLING FOR NINTENDO YOUR THE REASON THEY KEEP DOING THIS.
OTHER INTERNET GUYS: Don't worry guys, this is obviously just a filler game until Nintendo comes out with the REAL new 3D Mario... I hope...
INTERNET GUYS: ALSO LOOK AT THE LEVEL DESIGNS ITS JUST A BUNCH OF GENERIC BLOCKS AND CYLINDERS THEY THREW TOGETHER AND THE GRAPHICS LOOK LIKE UPREZED 3DS TEXTURES AND THE MUSIC IS ATROCIOUS LISTEN TO THAT CRAPPY MUSIC IN THE TRAILER ITS NOTHING LIKE THE ORCHESTRATED MASTERPIECES IN THE GALAXY GAMES
NINTENDO: Okay guys its release day here's the game! I hope you enjoy it. Also, here are some trailers that literally spoil EVERYTHING in the game to convince you it isn't a HD remake of the 3DS Mario game! Enjoy :D
INTERNET GUYS: OMFG THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE THIS GAME AND THE GRAPHICS AND LIGHTING ARE BEAUTIFUL AND THE FULLY ORCHESTRATED SOUNDTRACK IS INCREDIBLE AND THE POWERUPS ARE SO MUCH FUN TO USE AND THE MULTIPLAYER IS AWESOME!!!!! :D :D :D
ME: I wish I could play it. :<
FFFFFFFF

They are still people literally arguing that “Super Mario 3D Land” and “Super Mario 3D World" supposedly aren’t real 3D games.

I guess being set in three dimensional polygonal environments, using polygonal 3D character and object models, employing three dimensional game design theory, being made by the Super Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2 team, and in 3D Land’s case, literally being presented with autostereoscopic 3D graphics, and actually having 3D in the titles of BOTH games somehow magically isn’t enough for them to be considered 3D.

Also I find myself shocked how many people are turned off by the presence of animal suits and flagpole goal posts in 3D Land and 3D World, was their first Mario game Mario 64 or something?

Why do I keep going on the IGN boards what the hell is wrong with me.

Mario, you&#8217;re being a dick. :&lt;
(it would be hilarious if the Koopa starts crying if you throw the shell off a cliff or break it though)

In response to this specific set of screenshots, I’ve still seen people bitching that this is “just a sidescroller” and that “this isn’t a REAL 3D Mario game”.

Okay then.

Mario, you jerk. :&lt;

Mario, you jerk. :<

The Super Mario 3D World boxart leaked as a low res image.
I like it, but having the characters both in their normal AND their cat forms is kinda overly complex.
I guess its because they wanted to both have Mario be extremely obvious and recognizable, but they also wanted to show off the cat powerup.
I won&#8217;t get to play this unfortunately, but I really can&#8217;t wait for this game to come out for all the morons bitching about how this is just a remake of the Mario game on 3DS that&#8217;s &#8220;lazy&#8221; or has &#8220;nothing new&#8221; can either shut up or carry on looking like full blooded morons.

When I last walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, I found a Koopa Troopa sticker.
I wish I brought along my book of Pokémon stickers.
Yes, I sticker abuse IRL too sometimes.

This is the original Japanese commercial for Super Mario Bros. It’s really odd conceiving that the appeal of Super Mario Bros. once had to be spelled out and pitched to people to get their interest.

It’s also weird because I don’t think Super Mario Bros. ever had a television commercial outside of Japan, and even when the NES came out in the US, none of the commercials from the launch period drew attention to SMB (it actually wasn’t a launch day game in the US!) and as far as I know it wasn’t even mentioned until later sets came out that included it.

The first screenshot is from New Super Mario Bros. Wii for Wii.

The second is from New Super Mario Bros. U for Wii U.

I’m quite sure that most of the critics claiming that there isn’t a clear graphical improvement between these two games, and panning New Super Mario Bros. U for supposedly having “the exact same graphics” as its console predecessor either isn’t paying attention, or simply decided in advance to be unimpressed by this game, and possibly the Wii U console in general.

Too bad it&#8217;s not real.

No game.
Screw you.

Mario Kart turns twenty years old this week.
I play as Luigi, or Koopa when he&#8217;s available.
I actually don&#8217;t like the original Super Mario Kart or Mario Kart Super Circuit.
People go off on me when I say this and accuse me of just disliking the games because of their graphics being less advanced than other games in the series.
I played these games WHEN THEY WERE NEW. I don&#8217;t like the way the karts steer, the crazy rotation the camera does while it&#8217;s steering, and the way the race only takes up the upper half of the screen in Super Mario Kart.

I can&#8217;t believe what a good job they did making this ad look like it came from a gaming magazine in the mid 1990&#8217;s.
