    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    In retrospect I think they perhaps should have delayed the release of motion plus for a bit and released an upgraded Wii 2 or Wii Plus along with Skyward Sword and Sports Resort.

    I think a lot of people simply were not ready to buy a new Nintendo console at the time. Wiis were still all under peoples TVs and Just Dance and Mario Kart still getting played. If they were going to buy anything new it would be a PS4. Switch definitely benefited from that extra time, people having to make do with PS4's version of the type of games Nintendo does for a bit, and the failure of Wii U. They were just far more ready for a new Nintendo console.

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    The Mash. Here are Legs and Co doing it full justice. A video featuring the bonus intro to another classic one hit wonder at the very end.

    Yeah, this thread is a little nuts. The best example has to be A-ha though. Their follow up to Take on Me went to number one.

    Looking for Linda was definitely a proper hit too. Never owned it obviously, but I can sing you the chorus if you want.

    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    Yeah, zero chance of him making the bench now, he'll be off on loan somewhere I'd imagine. Plenty of potential, but still very raw.

    And we had another 2D Mario platformer released 3 years and 4 months ago.

    Sam Ricketts is probably just trying to make himself feel a little better after abandoning us. Manny Smith has had to have an operation, so Kennedy will be centre back cover for the rest of the season. . I'd imagine the idea will probably be Stockton or Beavon supporting Oswell who will be the big goal scoring hope.

    On top of Jason Oswell who scored a billion goals for Stockport last season, we've nabbed striker Cole Stockton from Tranmere on loan for the rest of the season who is alright as this level, but doesn't get many goals. Theoretically we should be a bit stronger up front. Brad Walker, who has been absolutely key in central midfield for us on loan from Crewe, has signed for Sam Ricketts at Shrewsbury. Boooooooo. Because Brad Walker played for Crewe and then joined us on long term loan until January he can't actually play for his new team Shrewsbury because of the two clubs in a season rule, so Wrexham have re-signed him on loan for the rest of the season from Shrewsbury. Hooray!!! Predictably we lost to Bromley on Tuesday. I knew we would, we looked fucked in the previous game. That's three losses in a row, although the Dover defeat at home was the real disappointment. If we'd won that I wouldn't be that arsed about the other two. We've now got a trophy game against Orient on Saturday to rest and recuperate the squad before another tough game away at Fylde next week.

    The Wind Waker remake for WiiU - not just HD

    Add Nintendoland for 6 pounds and Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush for12 pounds. 2 essential games for Nintendo fans that won't work as Switch ports. You'd have all that for less than the price of three Switch games. The console instantly paying for itself.

    They look alright obviously, and I'll give them top marks for making an effort rather than some cheapo retro look , but I wouldn't describe Hollow Knight and Monster Boy as GORGEOUS. And while NSMBU certainly looks bland, sterile, and indistinctive compared to say Galaxy or Odyssey, it is still Mario. The way he and the baddies look, sound, and move about completely shits on those two indie games if you ask me. It is still a game with loads of charm.

    It can be fun in multiplayer, but, as with the Wii version, NSMBU is far too frequently frustrating, infuriating, and unsatisfactory, played with others. Nabbit was an okay addition and everything, but ultimately felt like a bit of a cheat. It's not a game designed around all age/ability multiplayer fun. That was Nintendoland's job at the Wii U launch. Mario 3D World works much better in multiplayer too. NSMBU is at its best played solo, rinsing the sensationally designed levels and going for100% before doing the same on Luigi U and tackling the challenge levels. That's where it shines as a platformer. The most sophisticated and wonderful 2D platformer ever made. That's what you should be buying it for.
