      1. Now you know these toxic Nintendo fan elitists can’t help themselves. They got to prove that the Sony fanbase is the most toxic fanbase by being even more toxic than them.

      2. Hence why I added elitist: they hate anything that isn’t as superior as they believe they are. Basically nazis.

  1. Congrats to Mario. I hope when I play more of it later that it lives up to the awesomeness of 64 & Sunshine because Galaxy was meh to me. Fun, but meh.

    Assassin’s Creed Origins at #4, eh? Sweet. I can’t wait til

    When I finish Nights of Azure, I think I’ll play both this game & Super Mario Odyssey in tandem & switch it up every night. Odyssey one night then Origins the next night. Rinse & repeat.

    1. I can’t wait til I can see all the changes in gameplay from the traditional Assassin’s Creed gameplay!*

      Zelda, Mario, & Assassin’s Creed. Three games that changed their formulas. Of course, Zelda’s changes are great but they sadly came at the expense of dungeons’ amount of enemies & the enemies themselves are sadly mostly just palette swaps with better stats. Of course, that could have just been another homage to the original Legend of Zelda where the enemy variety was pretty low & mostly composed of palette swaps. Just gotta hope Assassin’s Creed Origins & Super Mario Odyssey didn’t suffer the same problem with their changes to the franchise’s formula.

  2. In Wal-Mart tonight, I suddenly heard the “Jump Up Superstar” song playing somewhere behind me (probably on one of the TV’s). I didn’t see where it was coming from, but it put a smile on my face. It’s a good time to be a gamer. Actually, it’s ALWAYS been a good time to be a gamer. Ever since the NES (and the Atari 2600 before that. Crap, I’m getting old).
