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.

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!

Darren’s Animal Crossing Memory Walk

I first heard about the Animal Crossing franchise from the original Nintendo Official Magazine (NOM) in the UK, which was advertising the GameCube Animal Crossing title. The series didn’t initially interest me, and it wasn’t until a friend of mine showed me his American copy of Animal Crossing: Wild World on his DS Lite, that my attention for the series piqued. There was just something appealing about the idea of a chilled and relaxed game, where you collect fish and bugs and play with friends in person and online. At the time, the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection was still quite new, and I loved the idea of playing with friends across the world.
