Nintendo released a new trailer for the upcoming Super Mario 3D World Switch re-release and showcased more of the Bowser’s Fury addition. I don’t want to spoil it for you so watch it before you read on.

Looks like in Bowser’s Fury you interact in some way with Bowser Junior then Godzilla Bowser and then you become Super Lion Mario? As awesome as this looks I’m not sure what kind of game this will turn out to be so I’m interested in hearing what you think.



Wanted to share this Noclip interview / doc where Tim Schafer outlines the history of Double Fine and it's roots at Lucas Arts. It's fun that it came full circle where Tim could return to the ol' Lucas Arts adventure games and properly remaster them. He also provides an interesting explanation for selling to Microsoft.

One criticism I hear from a lot of folks that played Borderlands 3 is that the games twin antagonists are very annoying and drag the game down. This is an unfortunate thing to hear as, to date, the Borderlands franchise has created very compelling villains. All that to say, over the holidays I found the base Borderlands 3 on a good PC sale for $15 and I picked it up and I've played it a bit so far and haven't experienced the twin villains yet so I can't weigh in on that part but wanted to get a few thoughts out anyway.

Again, I'm quite early in playing Borderlands 3 on PC but I have a few bits to share and also wanted to get your thoughts on Borderlands 3 and what... Read All


I'm a big fan of the New Super Mario Bros. games and plan to collect, play and beat em' all. This Holiday I was fortunate enough to have been gifted New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe on Switch and have been playing it a lot since that joyful day. Is it a good entry in the series or does it fizzle out and is made ENTIRELY OBSOLETE by Super Mario Maker 2? Read on for the answer...

As much as we give George a hard time about writing the prequel trilogy, he has some really good thoughts on The Force, and life in general.

I don't have much to add to what he says in this video; I just recommend watching!

Watched a very short video by John Riggs where he explains how to unlock small Fire Mario and I decided to share here for folks that don't know about this old glitch.

From the glitch topia wiki:

* Be Big Mario or Fire Mario and go to a Castle level (World 3 Castle recommended).
* Try to touch the Axe and get hit by Bowser at the same time.
* When you are in the next level you will be big. Collect a Mushroom and you will turn small.
* Now collect a Fire Flower and you will be transformed into Small Fire Mario/Luigi.
