Not A New Doki Doki Panic, But We’re Getting Closer

Posted on June 10, 2014 by Les Major

I would LOVE a new Super Mario Bros. 2 USA version (Doki Doki Panic) game. The content in NES Remix 2 that allowed you to pick up blocks as Toad in both Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Kirby’s Adventure brought back so many good memories. Shy Guy and Birdo are both still around even! Now, in the latest title Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii-U that spins off from Super Mario 3D World, you can even pluck turnips to throw at enemies? I’m in love! Read on for the trailer!Read More


Super Mario 3D World | Review

Posted on January 6, 2014 by Les Major

I figured I’d enjoy Super Mario 3D World, but I didn’t realize how much fun it would be until I got into it. Throughout the game there is a lot of nostalgia mixed with newer style gameplay. In a lot of ways the game reminded me a lot of Super Mario Bros. 2, the US version. I’d actually originally gone in wishing this was a sequel to that part of the series, caught up with playing as the four heroes again that starred in the US remake of Doki Doki Panic. However 3D World quickly won me over and made me forget that dream for another day.

The adventure starts off with Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad running off to save the Sprixies, these little fairy people who honestly reminded me of the citizens of Subcon. Bowser has captured them and taken off to their kingdom. You’re dropped off as your chosen player character on a open map you can wander and search for coins on. Sure it’s similar to Super Mario Bros. 3 with paths between levels, but you can actually wander off of those in this one.
