New Paper Mario: The Origami King Details Emerge

By |June 12th, 2020|News, Nintendo|

With nearly a month until Paper Mario: The Origami King launches for Nintendo Switch, more details about the upcoming title have been announced. King Olly has commandeered Peach’s Castle in an attempt to fold up the world. Binding the castle, massive streamers are sprawled across the land and it’s up to Mario to unravel them at their source.

The new trailer has introduced some new unlikely companions, including Bobby, a Bob-Omb suffering from amnesia, and Olivia, King Olly’s kind-hearted sister. The trailer also went in-depth on how the new ring-based battles will work. Mario can rotate rings and slide columns to try and bunch up enemies before the timer runs out. You’ll then have to decide which of your weapons to use to make the biggest impact.

Taking on the big bad bosses of the world, aptly named ‘The Legion of Stationery’, takes a slightly different approach. This time you’ll have to move the rings and columns to build a path for Mario to reach the boss in the centre. Having trouble? Depending on how many Toads you have rescued during your adventure may affect how much support they’ll provide in-battle. Always worth helping a little guy in need!

Check out the new trailer below, as well as a press release and gallery after the break!


Black Lives Matter – A Statement

By |June 2nd, 2020|Non-Nintendo|

Though we are an outlet for video game related content, we really wanted to post a statement regarding the current Black Lives Matter protests, an event that is very important and means a lot to us. It is also something that SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED.

Like many others, we too are appalled by how black people are still receiving so much injustice in the world, and my heart goes out to everyone affected (as well as their families), such as George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others who have been killed just because they are black.

To all those who are trying to make a difference, we hope you are all able to stay safe. To those who are watching the protests on TV, please remember that those who are looting do not represent the movement and are using it as an opportunity (BLM protestors have been trying hard to try and prevent this).

If you wish to support the movement, there are several things we can do:

  • Donate to any relevant relief or bailout funds
  • Write to your legislation demanding accountability for police actions
  • Support black business, creatives, and devs
  • Use your white privilege to combat injustice
  • Support the protestors by attending the protests (while trying to keep yourself safe from police force)
  • Educate yourself on black history and all the injustice they suffer

Thanks for listening, stay safe, and let’s all make a difference together!

REVIEW – 51 Worldwide Games

By |June 1st, 2020|Nintendo Switch, Review|

Games are pretty awesome. Some people like to play them on their consoles, others like to spend time playing with friends and family with tabletop gaming. Both of these come together in 51 Worldwide Games, offering a range of popular board and card games from around the world, with some dating back millenia! For those of you who loved its predecessor, 42 All Time Classics (Clubhouse Games in the US) on the Nintendo DS, you’ll be as surprised as I am to see a sequel to that amazing title.

Recently, I’ve been streaming more regularly over on our Twitch profile. Most of the streams have been multiplayer-focused to support Nintendo Players UK and their NPUK Online campaign, however, we have also been starting our own play-through series: NintyPlays!

Every Friday, we have been playing through Ty the Tasmanian Tiger HD on Nintendo Switch. Even though tomorrow we will be concluding the game, I am hoping to continue the series with even more titles. If you were not able to catch the play-throughs live, never fear as we have also been uploading each one to YouTube. Please check out the game so far below. Don’t forget to check out our Twitch profile too!

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

By |May 27th, 2020|Features, Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Maker, Super Mario Maker 2 Levels|

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!
