Mario

Poochy & Yoshi's Wooly World [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Thanks to the ability to switch the difficulty between two settings at any time on-the-fly, Poochie and Yoshi's Wooly World is a true "for all ages" video game. It'll serve up a respectable challenge to older gamers on the default setting, then knocked down to "easy" on the secondary setting it is simple enough for even young gamers to get through the main story of the title.

The Pros: 

+Adjustible difficulty for new and veteran gamers alike.
+"Choose your own" difficulty ramps quickly if you're trying to collect all the extras.
+World and character design are incredibly charming and beautiful on the 3DS.

The Cons: 

-The gap between the two settings can be a bit extreme if you're OCD about collectibles.
-Definitely a step down in graphics for the 3DS installment of the franchise, losing some of the more impressive wool look of the Wii U title.

Here’s something I never thought I’d say: There are levels in this iteration of Yoshi’s Story that I found myself legitimately stuck on. For the first time in the franchise history, Yoshi is not just Mario for babies (or with Baby Marios). It’s a full-fledged action platformer with some real depth to it if you feel the need to sink your teeth into all the collectibles and bonus levels that the game has to offer.

Play Super Mario on your laser etcher!

I’ve seen the Mario Theme played on virtually any rig you can imagine. I’ve seen it done with pianos, guitars, ocarinas, accordions, RC cars with bottles, and theremins to name just a few.

Art and video games combine to make amazing

Earlier today Major Nelson posted on his Twitter account about some amazing photography by Marc Da Cunha Lopes (aka Aisakie). The imagery boggled my mind and ignited my imagination, so I decided I'd be kind enough to share it with you all.
