Video: Super Mario rescues the Princess “UNCENSORED”

Videos from Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy! have been on YouTube for months, but they were censored versions of what would ultimately become a DVD/Blu-Ray release. That DVD/Blu-Ray launched this month (May 12th) and some of the uncensored videos were put on YouTube.

The content of the video is essentially the same, but now Mario is dropping F-bombs.

Super Mario Galaxy Review

It's easy to dismiss Nintendo's Wii as a $250 gimmick. The console's "revolutionary" library is full of muti-platform movie tie-ins and remakes—not to mention the last minute control-swapping in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Sure, the Wiimote can make first-person shooters more natural to play; it's also probably no small factor in Manhunt 2's infamy. But the real test of the Wiimote is a game that showcases its unique features while integrating them so deeply into the gameplay that its uniqueness doesn't distract us. There haven't been any games that fit the bill. Until now.

Super Mario Galaxy and Nintendo’s continuing critical dominance

The arrival of Super Mario Galaxy marks the continuation of one of gaming's most beloved franchises. It also happens to mark the extension of Nintendo's remarkable streak of critical supremacy.

Wii’s Virtual Console imports not worth the wait

Since purchase, my Wii has seen very little action. Extremely little. The layer of dust on it is ridiculous. When a few import titles made their way to the Virtual Console, I was intrigued.  My first purchases from Nintendo's offerings, I downloaded Sin & Punishment and Super Mario Bros: the Lost Levels.

Super Paper Mario – Second Opinion

I think it really says something about the maturity and freestanding quality of the medium that there can be a game that derives so much entertainment purely from self-reflexivity. That videogames provide such fertile ground for multi-dimensional satire (no pun intended) is as sure a sign as any of the creative health of the art form.

Super Paper Mario – Review

Read review of Super Paper MarioInspired by a visual trick from The Thousand Year Door, the developers of Super Paper Mario asked a simple question: what would classic Mario levels look like expanded one dimension into the background? So yes, the entire game is based on a gimmick, but in its defence, the gimmick is an extremely good one. Oh, and there’s some RPG and platforming stuff tossed in there as well to keep things from getting dull.
