Nintendo has a hit on its hands with the Switch, a hybrid console that users can connect to their big screen TV or take with them for a portable gaming experience. Part of the success is because of first-party hits like Super Mario Odyssey. Interestingly enough, Super Mario Odyssey is now playable on the PC through an emulator. In a video posted to YouTube, BSoD Gaming demonstrated Super Mario Odyssey running on PC through the Yuzu emulator. This has been a work in progress for several months by the same developers who built Citra, a popular Nintendo 3DS emulator. Back in January of this year, the Yuzu team noted that their Nintendo Switch emulator is "written in C++ with portability in mind,"... Read more...
If you grabbed the free Super Mario Odyssey DLC that landed this week and have encountered what appear to be cheaters in Nintendo's Luigi's Balloon World game, you know the frustration that some folks are likely going through right now. These cheating players are using a glitch in a game that allows them to move through walls to hide the balloons, that players are tasked with finding, in areas that are out of bounds to honest players that are not exploiting the glitch. If you are unfamiliar with the Balloon World mode, it's sort of like a game of hide and seek from your childhood, only the hider is placing balloons in the worlds of the game and then the seekers must go and find them. If... Read more...
Nintendo last month surprised and delighted Switch owners when it announced that it was bringing a bit of DLC to Super Mario Odyssey, and that the added content would not cost a dime. Super Mario Odyssey was not expected to receive any DLC, so the fact that it was both coming and would be free was welcome news to gamers. Fast forward and a month and Nintendo has delivered on its promise, with Balloon World DLC now available to download. Balloon World focuses on Luigi, who shows up in different kingdoms to give Mario a new challenge. The only caveat is that you have to beat the main game before accessing Balloon World. Internet access is required as well, though that's not much of a caveat since... Read more...
Now is a good time to be a multi-platform gamer. That's because some high profile games are on sale, including Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch and Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PlayStation 4 (and maybe the Xbox One as well). You have to act fast, though, as we are not sure how long either of these discounts will last. Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, seems to have already sold out of discounted Xbox One preorders. It's been a bit of a wild ride for Red Dead Redemption 2 so far, which Rockstar Games first announced in October 2016. At the time, the developer said the sequel would release in Fall 2017. That changed in May, with Rockstar Games pushing the launch back to Spring 2018.... Read more...
Back when Super Mario Odyssey was originally announced, the game wasn't expected to get any DLC to bring new features and gameplay modes. As it turns out that wasn't exactly true; Nintendo Direct announced this morning that DLC would be rolling for the game at no additional cost. The DLC doesn't involve a new world before you get too excited. The new content includes some new outfits and a new gamely mode. The new mode is called Balloon World and it will feature asynchronous online multiplayer gameplay. The new mode is only available to players who have finished the main story of the game. One version of the new mode allows players 30 seconds to find balloons that other players have hidden.... Read more...
One of the few criticisms we could muster about the Nintendo Switch when the console first debuted last March was that it launched with a relatively weak catalog of games. Luckily for Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild turned out to be a fantastic title, and early on it even sold more copies than the console itself. Over time, however, things have improved, and Nintendo is seeing particularly good results from one of its newest titles, Super Mario Odyssey. Super Mario Odyssey has been one of the most anticipated games for the Switch. The numbers back that up—Nintendo has sold over 2 million copies of Super Mario Odyssey in just the first three days since it came out. And with the... Read more...
While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have dominated console gaming news at E3 over the past few years, the blockbuster debut of the Switch means that Nintendo has a lot to talk about this year. Perhaps the biggest news that came from the Nintendo camp this year was an official launch date for Super Mario Odyssey — Mario’s first official adventure title on the Switch (we’re not counting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe). Nintendo says that Super Mario Odyssey will arrive on October 27th, and marks the series’ return to the 3D sandbox-style adventure after a 15-yer absence. Nintendo whetted the appetites of fans around the globe with a new trailer for the game, which highlights one of Mario’s new tricks: his... Read more...
The Nintendo Switch has been a sales blockbuster, which is a much needed “win” for the Japanese game company following the disappointed of its immediate predecessor: the Wii U. Given the excitement surrounding the Switch, which is still sold out at retailers across the United States, it should come as no surprise that the console will be the main focus of Nintendo’s upcoming E3 festivities. This time around, all eyes will be on Super Mario Odyssey, which marks the first sandbox-type Mario game since Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. Mario fans were definitely excited when the first trailer for Super Mario Odyssey dropped earlier this year, and many were no doubt a little unsettled by Mario’s... Read more...
