1,000 Levels and Counting: StephenPlays Reaches Morning Mario Milestone

Sometimes I wonder: have we spent more hours playing the Super Mario Maker franchise or watching others do it for us?

In the case of much of YouTuber Stephen Georg’s fanbase, the answer is probably the latter. For almost five years, thousands of viewers have been able to watch an episode of Morning Mario, Stephen’s flagship 6 a.m. EST series, showcase an awesome Super Mario Maker level every weekday morning. It’s a formula that’s stood the test of time for half of a decade, and in an exclusive interview, he told us the series’ momentum is showing no signs of stopping!

I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 3 years old, and my earliest memory is watching my dad play Super Mario 64.
Since then, I’ve become as big of a fan as you might imagine: YouTube video projects, fan fiction, owning just about every amiibo — you name it!
I’m also a stalwart defender of underappreciated games like Skyward Sword, Other M, Super Paper Mario, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Zero and more. I love to see passion in a gaming product, and my desire on this site is to share a similar passion in what I write.

The Case for Persona 5 on Switch

As of late, alongside dabbling in island life with Animal Crossing: New Horizons, I have been delving deep into the hearts of criminals to change their evil ways in Persona 5 Royal on Playstation 4. It’s an incredibly meaty game, having already spent over 100 hours in before I’ve even reached its climax, and I would love to share the experience with more people. But there’s just one problem, it’s platform specific to Playstation right now. If you’re reading on this site, there’s no doubt that you definitely have a Switch but probably not a PS4. It seems baffling that Atlus seems to be ignoring the platform outside of smaller titles or the Nintendo published Tokyo Mirage Sessions, there is no doubt in my mind that there is a demand for Persona 5 and other Atlus titles on the platform. So let’s look into the matter, what factors are there in Persona’s favour and what exactly could it be holding it back?

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

Tricky Towers launches physically for Switch June 8th!

Tricky Towers is a physics-based multiplayer game that launched on the Nintendo Switch eShop back in 2018. Thanks to Super Rare Games, however, the title will be seeing a physical release with a collector’s edition very soon… as early as next month!

There are also 50 trials to take on as a solo wizard, perfect for you to hone in your magically architectural skills!

Included in this collector’s edition are six previously released DLC packs, a 12-page fully coloured manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and three random trading cards from a five-card set. The edition is limited to 4000 copies worldwide and launches on the 8th June for £32.40; pre-orders begin next week on Thursday 28th May.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Paper Mario: The Origami King Unfolds on Switch this Summer

Like a surprise paper plane through the window, Nintendo has thrown us an announcement out from nowhere… Paper Mario: The Origami King. That’s right, a brand new Paper Mario title is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and it’s coming soon; 17th July to be exact!

King Olly, ruler of the Origami Kingdom, crashes the origami festival in the Mushroom Kingdom in an attempt to fold the entire world. With a range of new tools at his disposal, it’s up to Mario to save the day. With the brand new 100-arm fold ability, our moustached plumber can extend his limbs to pull, peel, and stretching the environment to solve various puzzles. The Origami King also adds a new way to fight with the ring-based battle system, introducing a new depth of puzzle solving within combat.

Check out the trailer below with a full press release and screenshots after the break!

Review – Ultimate Chicken Horse

There are countless 2D platformers on dozens of consoles over the decades of video game history. This century has also brought us a few sets of tools to make our own 2D platformers with the likes of the LittleBigPlanet and Super Mario Maker franchises. Leave it to indie developer Clever Endeavour Games to mix the playtime and creation aspects of the genre into one of the most laugh-out-loud multiplayer experiences I’ve ever played!

Make like a chicken (or a horse!) and jump to the full review!
