About This Club

Let's-a go! This is the place for everything related to the Super Mario series, from the Marioverse to the Mario games. All fans are welcome! So whether you're hankering for some Mushroom Kingdom goodness or just want to have a good time, come and join Mario's super club.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. IT'S OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Has anyone else picked it up yet??
  3. I wonder if there could be a way to work Tatanga in there somehow? Granted he was just a one-off villain from a game that seemed like something Mario was tossed into last minute rather than being built around, but maybe there are ways to make it work.
  4. I'd be down for Waluigi if he gets done "right." Depending on your point of view, Geno was in Smash 4 LOL. * But yeah, some SMRPG love wouldn't hurt. @IU I like where your head is at for off the wall stuff...but I don't think the Rabbids would make the cut because of how they are. But.... in the vein of what you are getting at... Hammer Brother: he'd have access to hammers, fireballs, stun stomps and other tactics from his brothers in arms. Birdo: Lots of different kinds of eggs to toss While I don't like Mario Kart Characters going this route: Cat Bowser / SM3DW? Cosmic Mario? I saw Gamexplain offer up Toad/Captain Toad..... ehh Magikoopa? I mean hell, he could take out sections of the stage with his magic blasts or transform them into hazards.
  5. Mario is so well represented in Smash Brothers that I would prefer something very off the wall at this point...Personally, it would be the Rabbids from Kingdom Battle and try to have the four of them function under one fighter by allowing switching between Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Yoshi possibly through Beep-O.
  6. Waluigi needs his time to shine! Although I wouldn't mind Wart, Geno or Fawful.
  7. I need some Mario RPG love, that game is just an all-time favorite and a true classic for me. So yeah, going with Geno, but I'd love to see Mallow too.
  8. Toad/Captain Toad Geno Waluigi Dixie Kong Funky Kong Paper Mario Mario with Cappy functionality
  9. Who from the Mario game lineage that hasn't appeared in Smash yet should? My tops would be: Wart Boshi *obviously he'd need different moves than normal Yoshi
  10. https://www.polygon.com/2018/5/17/17364350/mario-tennis-aces-demo-nintendo-switch Demo is coming.
  11. Apparently someone somehow found a way to insert Mario into Ocarina of Time! Finally, an excuse to actually play Zelda? I'm in!
  12. In some weird way I wonder if they would apply the 2D level styles out of SMO to make a New Old SMB game.
  13. I also agree that, while I would be fine with another "New" Mario game, it needs a unifying innovation. One (or several) new power-up is a must, as well as unique level designs. I honestly have been rather worried about the NSMB series after Super Mario Maker came out, as the latter has the undesirable potential aftereffect of devaluing the Mario 2D platformers since anyone can make them. That said, not everyone has expert level design. I would love to see some old series features/assets revived as well, such as Sunshine or SMB2, blending retro and new. I think we'll get a new NSMB on Switch, so I'm hopeful. Super Mario Run is fun but it's no replacement.
  14. It's been a long time since I've played through these games. Pretty much since their releases. I remember the Wii version being my favorite, though I really did appreciate the Wii U game because of the map. With that being said, I wouldn't mind a new entry, or a new series based on the NSMB but I would like either its own style of graphics, or take us to unique places we haven't been before. Also we have Super Mario Run which is pretty much the NSMB game engine.
  15. Yes and no. I'd be happy to see another strictly side-scrolling Mario game—like you said NSMBU was really solid and might even be the highlight of this sub-category of Mario. The "New" brand has kind of stagnated though, and personally I think they'd be better off naming a new side-scrolling Mario something other than NSMB and maybe embrace a more unique art style.
  16. Preamble: I liked NSMB. I liked NSMB Wii, but I'll admit, the graphics and some of the repetitiveness of it kind of wore on me. I liked NSMB 2, and while yeah, I did find it somewhat generic, the 3D made it pretty cool I liked a lot of the concepts tied to the Gold Fire Flower for puzzle solving. NSMBU/LU was pretty darn solid and the only one to really embrace the interconnected world map like SMW. I think that was its most redeeming feature. ************** ************** Real Talk: I think the NSMB moniker needs some re-branding. With some of the efforts in some of the games in the line I think the "N" moniker kind of sets up certain expectations. I mean we did go from Bros. to World to Galaxy .... but only Bros and World are 2D platforming games. It needs 1-2 NEW killer power up designs. I think they were money with the Squirrel one in the last game. And I loved the puzzle solving and strategy elements to the Gold Flower in NSMB2. I think it would be a smart move to take the game outside of the Mushroom Kingdom for a change. Aside from my affinity for going back to the SMB2 world of Subcon/Land of Dreams I think there are some other worlds that Mario can go back to or, why not do something entirely new.
  17. I liked the "3D" bottle idea. All Dr. Mario 64 really added was 4p mode and story mode.
  18. Definetly the same as you, the New Donk City festival is really hard to beat. The music, the visuals and jus the lighthearted fun of the whole thing really sealed the deal. Other moments are spoilery so marking just in case
  19. What if Dr. Mario could be 3D somehow, so you can spin the playing field as pills fall down? I honestly didn't like changes like Dr. Luigi, not only because no Mario, but because it was trying to change Dr. Mario on a fundamental level. It's like if you played Puyo Pop and the puyos didn't fall to the bottom if half of one was left hanging. I want to see more music, more characters, more modes, more challenges, and some 3D modes. Games like Dr. Mario 64 and Dr. Mario Rx were huge steps in the right direction. Dr. Mario is an excellent series and I definitely want to see more titles, as well as more Yoshi Cookie, Wrecking Crew, and Yoshi games as well.
  20. I haven't gotten to play very much, so my fondest moment is shouting about how OF COURSE the desert has been frozen over because there's an upside-down pyramid that's also a UFO blocking off a giant underground chasm guarded by an ancient Aztec deity. That and hunting down a rabbit prostitute in Jurassic Park have me excited but also dreading to see what more Nintendo has brewed for the new era.
  21. The New Donk City festival is a pretty magical moment. The visuals, the music, the trip down memory lane for the Mario franchise—the whole sequence is probably one of the most memorable game moments of 2017, alongside moments like stepping off the Great Plateau in Breath of the Wild, avoiding Jack in the main house in Resident Evil 7, or learning the backstory of Horizon Zero Dawn.
  22. Wedding Chapel end game was cool. Ruined Kingdom was so..... And I thought SM64, Metal Mario, and Samurai Mario costumes were super legit to have. Opening up Peach's Castle level. Nearly ever new enemy I tried to capture with Cappy..... Bullet Bills, the Sphinx, and T Rex were my tops though. Frogs get a honorable mention though.
  23. That definitely made me stop for like twenty minutes just to groove to it. Can't wait for the OST to arrive in the mail. Here are some other killer official remixes, the latter of which is my favorite remix of the song:
  24. What was the most memorable thing for you about Super Mario Odyssey? I had a lot of trouble thinking about this, as I feel like everything in the game has the potential for being unforgettable nostalgia. I loved when I first arrived at the Mushroom Kingdom and the Moon, but my personal favorite memory is... celebrating the New Donk City festival with mayor Pauline! It was just so exciting and was an homage to all things Mario, both old and new!! Donkey Kong is often overlooked when people celebrate the longevity of the series, and I was beside myself with joy to see Nintendo combine all of these old elements into something thrilling, joyous, and legendary.
