My Games This Weekend - 10.23.09 - Bowser's Inside Story and TMNT: Smash-Up

My wife finally got her copy of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, but so far, I've been the one playing it, and that will no doubt continue over the weekend. I'm only a short ways in, but this is already turning into my favorite of the three, as it seems to have addressed some issues I've had with past games. It still doesn't tell you how much further you have to go before a boss finally dies, but at least the exploration feels less tedious and the controls and timing seem all-around better. Oh, and the dialogue is funnier than Partners in Time, too, more along the lines of Superstar Saga. Read More


New Super Mario Bros. Wii Blowout: Koopaling Capers, Ice Flowers, Box Art, Tins, and More

Quite a bit of stirring has occurred in the neck of the woods inhabited by New Super Mario Bros. Wii as of late. Taking it from the top, Nintendo Everything has found the box art for the PAL version of the game, the German version, more specifically. As you can see to your right, it is very similar to the North American box art, but with the Wii banner at the top colored red to better go with the large red box at the bottom that some people have taken issue with. Personally? I think I like it better this way. That's not the only box-related goodness available for those across the pond, however. Read on for more. Read More


Bowser's Inside Story Features Special Challenges for Masochists; M&L for Wii?

It seems that there are some masochists out there feel that the Mario & Luigi titles are just "too easy" for advanced players. During a recent interview with Nintendo Treehouse translator Nate Bihldorff, they asked whether or not the latest in the series, Bowser's Inside Story, had any challenges for these beasts among men. And as luck (for them) would have it, there certainly are. Read More


My Games This Weekend - 09.11.09 - I'm Thinking, Partners in Time

As I indicated last week, I put Ace Attorney 3 on hold long enough to focus on finishing Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, and I've made some pretty good strides; in fact, I now appear to be at the final battle, and just in time, too: Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (which is getting rave reviews) comes out on Tuesday. Hopefully I'll be able to put the Princess Shroob down before Fawful makes his triumphant return. Aside from that, there has been a bit of Dreamcast celebration this week, but I haven't managed to pull out the ol' box and hook it up yet. I may try to do that this weekend, get in a little Cannon Spike and Sonic Adventure, perhaps Street Fighter III. Maybe I'll try to get Sonic Adventure's downloadable content, and I might even throw in my GameCube copy of Crazy Taxi (into the Wii, of course) just for kicks. So, that's what I'm playing this weekend, though I may squeeze in a little Super Mario World and Contra ReBirth as well. What are you going to be playing? [Image] Read More


Media: Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Commercial (and All the Others)

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is poised to be released next week, and it looks like the advertisements have already begun-- or at least leaked out. And the commercial we've seen so far is very... um... Know what? Just see for yourself? "They call him the Blue Bomber... because he's BLUE!" Wait, no, that's not right... While I admittedly don't hate this ad as much as the similar Mega Man one (less brainless babble, really), I think I prefer the Japanese commercials better. But not simply for being Japanese; as one GoNintendo commenter pointed out, the first Mario & Luigi title in North America had a pretty good one, too. Check it out after the break. Read More


My Games This Weekend - 09.04.09

Ah, another weekend. I still need to write my impressions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, and would have done so last weekend, but the WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 preview (hint, hint) took far more of my time than I had anticipated. And there's still more to come on that front, too! Aside from that, as I alluded to earlier, I may try to swing No More Heroes into my plans somewhere, but my big plans involve using some coupons I received to see G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. And for that, I think I'm going to put Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations on hold so I can finish Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, as Bowser's Inside Story is only a little over a week away. So, those are my games this weekend. What are yours? Read More


My Game This Weekend - 04.10.09

I couldn't find anyone else to do the honors this week, so you're stuck with what I'm playing again. Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of being broke, so I really have nothing grand or extraordinary to speak of. I've recently acquired Wii Play (and another code for Club Nintendo, yay!), so I might pull that out. I've also finally hunkered down with Kirby's Adventure on the Virtual Console, so more of that isn't unlikely. Most of all, I should probably finish Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time so I'll be fresh for when the next game comes out here. Also, my wife has begun Shadow of the Colossus, after all the rumblings this week about the movie. I may just join in on that. So, those are my possible games this weekend; what are yours?

GDC 2009: Reggie Speaks Out About OnLive, Used Games, and Much More

Following Nintendo Co. Ltd. President Satoru Iwata's keynote address at the 2009 Game Developers Conference, VentureBeat had the opportunity to catch up with Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime for an interview. One particularly interesting point is Mr. Fils-Aime's current opinion of OnLive: "Based on what I've seen so far," he says, "their opportunity may make a lot of sense for the PC game industry where piracy is an issue. But as far as the home console market goes, I'm not sure there is anything they have shown that solves a consumer need. What's the better experience in what they have described?" Read More


Media: Mario & Luigi 3 Import Gameplay Blowout

Now that Mario & Luigi 3 is out in Japan, GameTrailers has gotten their hands on a copy, and has plenty of new gameplay from the Japanese version for our enjoyment. To start off, we've seen Mario and Luigi hit millions of blocks over the past twenty years. Now, we get to see what happens when one of those blocks gets angry and decides to hit back: A nice look at how the mixed dynamic between the Bros. and Bowser works; he totally knocked his block off! And speaking of Bowser, oh my god, that voice rocks. I hope they have that in the English version. Read More


Media: Many More Mario & Luigi 3 Videos

Yesterday saw the arrival of three new videos for Mario & Luigi 3, with two commercials and one gameplay video. In the time since we posted them, however, Game Trailers has added even more videos, with two new ads and three new gameplay videos. First up, the third TV spot, showing off what effect the actions performed by Bowser and the Mario Bros. will have on one-another, plus some new special moves. Read More


Media: Mario & Luigi 3 in Detail, Plus Many New Screens!

Mario and that timid guy in green are back once again for another RPG adventure on Nintendo's best-selling handheld, which is due to arrive in Japan next month. This time, there's an outbreak in the Mushroom Kingdom which is causing all its citizens to blow up like they had a piece of Willy Wonka's candy. Read More


Afterthoughts on Nintendo's 2008 Fall Media Summit

Okay, so it's been a couple of days, and I've had time to ponder, reflect, and further research the announcements and news which came of Nintendo's 2008 Fall Summit last week. Here's what I think.Punch-Out!!: Finally, it feels like it's been too long since Nintendo made one of these. I hope it manages to improve on Wii Sports Boxing. I wonder if the MotionPlus might be used to help in that regard...Click the jump for more. Read More


What are You Playing This Weekend? No Points for Guessing Mine

What am I playing this weekend? Surely you jest. Sure, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time and MegaMan Star Force 2: Zerker x Ninja are jockeying for time in my DS, with the latter begging for a review (but my deciding to spend more time with it for fairness), but now that my review token has come in, there's no question where the lion's share of my time is going: So, what are you playing to kill a weekend?

Paper Mario 64 Coming to DS

Craving for more Mario on your DS? Well, Nintendo is about to quench your thirst with a remake of N64 classic Paper Mario. Now, this may be disappointing for many who downloaded the title on the Wii Virtual Console and would rather take the title on the go. As of now, there are no concrete details surrounding this newly announced port of Paper Mario 64 except that the title is planned for a July release in Japan. The DS has come close to experiencing the wonders of Paper Mario via Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time. While there are several differences between the two franchises, essentially they have the same underlining gameplay elements. We'll keep you updated as new information comes available. Stay tuned.

Update: Nintendo Dismisses New Mario Kart Info

Update: Yesterday, it was reported that Snaking would return in Mario Kart Wii, among other information, but perhaps the only "snaking" being done was on the part of the writers for the magazine who reported the information. According to a Nintendo spokesperson: "Nintendo has not announced any further information on Mario Kart. We've spoken to the magazine and it's just pure rumour and speculation on their part." Original Story: German magazine NMag (via GoNintendo) claims to have new details on Nintendo's upcoming Mario Kart title for the Wii. Power sliding and snaking (gaining constant boosts of speed by excessively power sliding) will both be making a return. Joining the driver crew will be Boo and Baby Peach, the latter of whom has appeared in Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time and again in Yoshi's Island DS. The game is said to offer different vehicles for every character. We knew this already, but Nintendo will be including an online battle mode, a feature sorely lacking in the outstanding Mario Kart DS. What will be returning from the DS rendition is a mix between old and new courses (16 old, 16 new). Control wise, expect to be twisting that Wii Remote similarly to what was required in Excite Truck.
