    Welp, seems Portendo is indeed relevant.

    I got the game on 360 and Xbone, it's not bad and I have to admit that I like it but... when is the switch getting proper games?

    Yes.
    It was released on the C64 as a Mario clone.

    I remember seeing this box art somewhere and completely writing it off. It really is terrible. I then saw a video of metal jesus recommending the game and I wondered what that game was and how I had never seen it before. Looking for it now its still almost miss-able because of how atrocious the box art is haha

    This series is steeped in history and tradition. I kickstart backed the heck out of it and oh my goodness do I find it a bland platformer. The character / setting changing mechanic is cool in look and concept but never got interesting imo. Never played the Owlord DLC or w/e.

    What's up with Normal Giana's pose?
    Mario_Spin_Art_-_Super_Mario_Galaxy.
    Given Giana's origins, this wouldn't be surprising.

    nah, this is getting old even for me.
    but in all seriousness, nintendo could put a requirement or something to third parties that they need to release new things instead of (quite) dated games that everyone already had the chance to play.

    The gameplay of this installment distances itself from traditional Mario.

    And yes, this was that game that had $40 Wii U physical copies, then $20 for PS4 a few months later.
