  1. Just beat Bowser on Mario Odessey... I am serioulsy impressed by this game is like anything we’ve seen on a Mario game and yet so familiar. 

     

    This game is my top second Mario game of all time

    (Sunshine still beat is but that just because I was 14-15 when I played it, it holds more value)

     

    I also realized I am sucker for nostalgia so you can imagine why I liked Odessey so much!

     

    Oh and btw I owned a 3ds for years but only really play it at home or on long plane rides.

     

    The Switch? Everywhere... I have it here at my office waiting for lunch time. 

     

    Why is the Switch different?

  2. Every time I watched footage the Zelda BotW, I am like, I want to play it again! But then I start and its just... *crickets* *crickets* I dont know what to do... what are some of your favorites past time activities in the game?

     

    I can play GTA and just sort of relax by driving around a little bit and creatimg chaos... i havent felt the same way with Zelda... yet I am eager to feel the same way.

  3. Super Mario Odyssey *SPOILERS BELOW*

     

    Going to have to eat my words...

     

    been playing a little more Odyssey and wow... I am loving it! Yes some aspects of  Donk City were a little dissappointing but man... after that it just gets amazing... plus I am now warmig up to the idea of an open world Mario...

     

    **SPOILERS BELOW***

     

     

    I just got a small glimpse of what I think can be the best level in the game... (Peachs castle and I cannot wait to play it) I was even at some point at Yoshis house! That one that we all saw back in the beginning of super mario world but this time fully 3D and HD rendered... i mean just wow!

     

    i love it when games throw in a little bit of Nostalgia who does too?

      Yes! The post-game content is phenomenal, and I've barely scratched it (I think I'm just over 400 stars?).

       

      I still need to ruminate over whether I think it's the best Mario game or not, but I'd definitely say it has the most content overall, which is pretty neat to see.

      Good point! Ive never really thought to ask myself that... is this the best Mario game yet? Not sure... for me Sunshine is hard to beat.

  4. Hey there

     

    ok quick rant...

     

    Mario Odessey amazing so far 

    (played up to kong city)

     

    but I cant help but feeling like the devs were a little lazy this time around (referring to kong city)

     

    anybody else feels this way?

    1. Jordan Haygood

      Jordan Haygood

      Could you elaborate? I'm not sure what you mean.

    2. carlituser

      Like I am playing in Donk City... (spoilers below***)

       

       

       

      and I loved the retro donkey kong reference

       

      but besides that the city feels a little dull (the people all look the same) they walk around in the same pattern, for a big city there is a limited amount of places to explore (counting the hidden ones) 

       

      The motorcycle and r/c car are nice additions but there is not much to it other than driving it around... 

       

      once you go through the story mission the city kinda dies down

       

      do you know what I mean? 

  5. Hey looks like my status update came back! Woo hoo!
    I posted a topic on this but I am not sure how many of you saw it  I initially just wanted to do a status).

    First things first, glad to be back, so much to discuss (i.e Zelda BotW and Odyssey)

     

    Before that though, I really need your help Podunkers, I am working on something all of us Nintendo fans will love (at least I love it).

    If you can please take a one minute of your time to fill this out, I will be very very grateful and  I also won't forget my fellow Podunkers if I end up launching the idea ;)

     

    Without further ado... a survey. (cue failure trombone sound (am I even saying it right?) )

    Thanks again!

      Yeah, I discovered it was because you were categorized as a new member. Technically, you're not a new member since you've been around since 2012, but I changed what determined the New Member category from Member category a few years back to help prevent spam. Basically, anyone with less than 20 posts is categorized as a New Member, and after that you become part of the Member category, which grants status updates. Too many bots were registering accounts and posting spam in updates, so that's why I ended up restricting it.

      I should add that I changed you to a Member in the backend to fix the problem. :P

      Thanks Jason, really helpful, glad to be back.

  6. Good morning Podunkers! It's been a while since the last time I was here and bunch of things have happened (got married, went on several trips with my wife, changed jobs a few time etc...) Gaming wise? Bought the Switch on the first day (I was one of those 5am people at Target) The Legend of Zelda BotW? Amazing! Only complain? There are very long distances to walk in the game and not a lot of to distract yourself with expect sightseeing and the occasional Jiga Clan guy. Currently playing? Mario Odessey, I am liking it so far... complain? some parts of the game feel very lazy (i.e the developers did not want to do that much work). And that's it! I wanted to post a status but for some reason I can't, hence this post. On another note, I am working on a small passion project to make Nintendo themed t-shirts but these aren't like anything you've seen before. How would you like to wear Mario leaf power-up for a day? Or Link's first 8bit green garments? I would love to tell you more and I need a favor from all of you podunkers! Can you take 1 minute and 17 seconds of your lives to answer the following survey? It will definitely help me understand more about where I am going and I also welcome feedback, so please feel free to drop in knowledge. Thanks and game on! https://carlos836.typeform.com/to/pXykKJ
  7. Thank you @Jason Clement I tried doing it but the only option I see when I click on create is "Topic", I dont see announcement or status.
  8. Hey Jason, I am back on the site after being absent for a while. I dont't see how post updates anymore... so I am rantless... and I worry. JK, I just want to know how to post updates again. Thanks.
  9. Is anyone else bothered by the fact that the Pokemon Blue/Red Virtual Console versions are black and white? What happened to the Gameboy Color versions?

      I know but wouldnt it be better if the versions were in color?

    3. carlituser

      carlituser

      The Yellow version does comes in color though

      I suppose, but that probably would have been a bit too much effort. They'll make all that cash regardless! :D

  10. Who else in here has Super Mario Maker? I just got it and I am looking for people to share my creations with and also see theirs!

  11. Can someone recommend the Rayman game for the WiiU? Which console is better to play it on WiiU or PS4?

      Pretty much what Jordan said.

      Thank you guys, going to get it after DKCR: TF

      I bet Wii-U and Vita are the versions to get because of specific levels that feel very much like they were made with touch screen in mind.

  12. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze has got to be one of the prettiest games out there for the WiiU, totally loving this game. A complete improvement from the first one.

      I freaking love that game. One of the best platformers I think I've ever played.

      @Jordan you could not be more right, it is one of the best platformers.

  13. A moment of silence for the brave 1,051 Pikmin that died in battle. And a strong round of applause to those 577 that remain and that in 50 days werr able to collect all the fruit. Hoorray!

      ... I really, really enjoyed this game.

  14. Finished Pikmin 3, I am very pleased and thankful I found out you can play with the Wiimote and the Wiipad at the same time.

    1. TKtheknight

      I want to play it. Really wish this was one of the Platinum Rewards.

  15. As some of you may know me and Zelda games have not found our chemistry...

    1. carlituser

      carlituser

      ... But I really want to change that. Every time I come across something about a Zelda game I have played I suddenly have the best memories. So I know there is something there. Here is my idea, what TLOZ game would you recommend for some one that feels the way I do about it. What are your suggestions? I would pick the best response (for me) and purchase the game and maybe update you on my process.

    2. Jordan Haygood

      Jordan Haygood

      Play Link: The Faces of Evil. That'll change your mind.

    3. barrel

      barrel

      Yup. Or Wand of Gamelon (but seriously, you said that you don't care for the most of the ones people like the most. At this point I think the only stuff you have left to at least try are maybe A Link Between Worlds and Minish Cap. Maybe Majora's Mask, but that game is pretty obtuse and easier to get lost in.)
