Crochet Mario and Friends
Well, maybe friends is a stretch. But the crochet versions of the Wario Bros. (not their canon name) look positively sweet.
These little fellas are handmade by artist Louie Mensinger. You can buy the patterns to make your own or buy them premade here. [❤]
No, You’re Not Dreaming. That’s Link In Mario Kart 8
Finally, Nintendo has caved and given us what we truly wanted: Super Smash Kart. Along with a playable hero of Hyrule, here’s what you get from the DLC pack coming November 2014 and a second pack coming May 2015.
Each Add On Content pack will contain two new cups, each with four courses, which, in total, increases the number of available courses by 50 percent. The Add On Content packs include classics like Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, as well as new courses, some taking place in the worlds of The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. New vehicles will also arrive with each pack, including the Blue Falcon kart representing the F-Zero franchise in the first AOC pack.
Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 - Released: November 2014
Pack 1 includes:
- 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses
Mario Kart 8 Pack 2 - Released: May 2015
Pack 2 includes:
- 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses
As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away
Extra Stages and a playable Link has made this a must have. The pack will cost 7 euros (aprox $10 USD). Not a bad deal for three new characters and two new cups. Check out more info/preorder your pack here. [❤]
Mario Maker Will Likely Have a Sharing System
Game producer Takashi Tekuza hinted at a way for Wii U owners to share their levels online in an interview with EDGE magazine.
“There will need to be a system for sharing courses online.”
Does that mean there will be a sharing system? Most likely, but Nintendo likes to hoard secrets like plague medicine in the Dark Ages. Mario Maker without online sharing capabilities will make it a less than desirable title.
I certainly hope I can play all of your home made challenges (and likely lose). [❤]
Zelda Wall Mural
I’d like to see monsters/boogeymen try their hands at invading this room. All atempts will be in vain if Link has anything to say about it.
Smash Bros. Daily Screen: Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in Classic Mode
The new Classic Mode introduces the Fiend Scale, which controls the difficulty of your challengers. The higher the intensity of the Fiend Scale, the harder the difficulty, the more gold you’re rewarded with in the end. [❤]
