I actually remembered this year! I played Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars. It might not be a normal Mario game, but it counts, right?

So I've had Super Mario Maker (Wii U) since the first week it came out.  (Not the first day, because I pre-ordered from Best Buy and had it delivered, but it didn't arrive on the first day, grrr, but whatever.)  The embarrassing thing is that I have not yet shared a single course!  Sure, I've played the game to get the Mystery Mushrooms and whatnot (though Expert is kicking my butt, I don't know about Super Expert), but I really should finish the stage I'm making and share it at some point.  Since it's #MAR10 again, if I have time to play games tonight, I'll try to finish and share my first stage!

You guys should also share any Super Mario Maker stage codes if you've made anything neat.

I almost forgot this year, but a tweet from Cartoon Network reminded me. Now that I've remembered, I'll... do something? I would be playing Super Mario Maker, too, but my back injury prevents me from sitting in front of the TV for more than a few minutes.

If you need courses to play, you should try mine! They are guaranteed to not be completely awful: https://supermariomakerbookmark.nintendo.net/profile/Peardian?type=posted

I completely forgot - my mind's more oriented towards Pi Day. >_>

I don't I'll be playing anything Mario-related. If anything, I MIGHT get back to work on EO2U, who knows. Just dealing with some nasty stuff in real life at the moment in addition to the usual stuff that'd keep me from working on it.

This topic is now 10 years old!

I was busy making a couple of Nintendo Switch videos for YouTube (see here and here), so I haven't even played as much of that as I would've liked.  But, there was no Mario game on launch day (not that it matters much with the highly-acclaimed The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild to fill my time), but that means we're not playing Super Mario Odyssey today.

Guess I can try to get some more black Coins in Super Mario Run; there's always that...

Oh, and I never did finish and share that stage I was working on in Super Mario Maker...  Sad

You know, I had no interest in buying a Switch just like I skipped on the Wii U. But damn if The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn't trying hard to change my mind. It very well might be what sells the system to me, just like Super Mario Galaxy sold me on the Wii. I'm just not completely sold on the hardware yet, with the sometimes unresponsive left joy-con, the rather short battery time, the uneven performances between the docked and portable configuration... I'm really hoping they release a revision somewhere down the line that will make it a "must" rather than a "maybe".

Going back to MAR10, I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've played a Mario game! I still haven't finished Super Mario 3D Land or New Super Mario Bros 1 and 2 but then again, I've given up hope of ever fully completing games like that. I'm just not good enough and don't have the time or patience to hang on long enough to become good enough. Also, holy crap! It's been almost three years since I "switched" to an HD TV and thus, three years since my Wii has been in the closet. I hope it's still working because some Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 goodness would be really fun right now.

The Wii U didn't get much third-party support when it was quickly obvious that people weren't catching on.  I could go on about it, but in keeping on the subject of Mario, Super Mario Bros. U isn't really much to write home about, and Super Luigi U is a remix but perhaps notable for being really hard if you play as Luigi (though ridiculously easy if you cheap out by playing as the invincible Nabbit).  I did enjoy Super Mario 3D World, and I will never forget the 6.5 hours (and something like 600 lives) that me and my brother spent one Saturday attempting, and finally completing, the insanely difficult "Champion's Road", the true final area.  Peach's floating and Rosalina's ability to attack are so crucial there...  But if you say you haven't even finished the incredibly easy Super Mario 3D Land, then maybe you wouldn't appreciate the challenge of that stage in 3D World...  However, it really is the "meatiest" Mario experience on the Wii U, though unless you have friends to appreciate the four-player simultaneous play in a 3D world (just a step up from the four-player simultaneous play in a 2D world in the "New" console series on Wii and Wii U), it may not feel like much of an evolution if you always expect bigger and better Mario experiences.

And as I mentioned, Super Mario Maker is great, but I never got around to making a stage, and the best stages by users often seem to be "automatic" ones, like Rube Goldberg machines, though indeed some are quite creative.

I regret to say that I never made time for Paper Mario: Color Splash, so I can't comment much on that, though I hear it's like Paper Mario: Sticker Star on the 3DS, which I also missed, in that neither are as RPGish as the previous games.

And the Mario sports games are meh, the newest Mario Tennis, whatever it was called, no one cared about, including myself, which is a shame as I generally at least enjoy them a bit.  Of course, there's Mario Kart 8 which is fun, but if you missed out on the Wii U but are considering a Switch, might as well get the upgraded Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, then, which includes the DLC and adds new modes, including a "real" Battle Mode (there was a Battle Mode in 8, but used the same tracks instead of arenas specific to that mode).

Looking forward to Super Mario Odyssey for sure, which even Nintendo officially acknowledges is more in the vein of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine (with its open hub worlds of Peach's Castle and Isle Delfino Resort respectively) than the somewhat fragmented Galaxy or "New" games.
