  1. (In nerdy voice) umm, ACTUALLY, Captain Toad made hits first appearance as an NPC in Super Mario Galaxy. 3D World was only his first PLAYABLE appearance. Why don’t you try doing actual research for once! (Snorts, readjusts glasses)

  2. After playing Bowser's Fury, I can say that it's better than Odyssey for me. Odyssey lacked platforming, something that Bowser's Fury has a lot of. If this is the direction the next Mario game is going towards, I'm super excited.

  3. The game is fantastic but the online mode is a bad experience for me. I've played with someone in another Canadian province from me, and I've played with family back in the UK. The lag is gross, especially when you pay for NSO. Funny thing is, its not the Switch or my internet that is the problem. Switch Stardew Valley online works perfectly as does playing Xbox, PS5 or Steam games. Nintendo seemingly just fail at network code.

  4. I'm glad you have actual complaints about the game instead of IGN who didn't like how the assist power up wasn't an automatic win button or how everything is cat.

  5. Whoa the IGN review seemed fair to me but this review seems like it’s about an entirely different game. I’m awful at mario games so getting this game never crossed my mind but the stark difference of opinion between Gamespot and IGN definitely reinforces the idea that this is subjective af and you should probably check out different opinions before making a decision.

  6. So glad this game is getting the respect it deserves over the past year. I always thought it was really slept on, it's easily one of the best Mario games, 2d or 3d.

  7. I bought the game for Super Mario 3D World which I highly enjoyed on WiiU and launched Bowser’s Fury without any high hopes given the ‘bad’ previews this ‘addition’ had. And color me surprised but that game is awesome, I couldn’t put down the controller for 4 hours straight. This game is the missing link between SM3DW and Mario Oddyssey and it’s pure fun, a real hidden gem. The open world makes you seamlessly explore the world, looking for cat stars and secrets literally everywhere. Mario Oddyssey felt big and empty to me and I often got bored to death of endlessly walking around and in Bowser’s Fury it’s a joy. Stuff everywhere, cats everywhere XD So give it a chance and try it out!
