I like to imagine them frienemies and only act friendly "on camera".

Plus when they have to work together against common foe (for example against Bowser + Eggman combo in 3DS London 2012 Story Mode).





Kinda like Goku and Vegeta when they have to beat Freeza, Cell, Buu, etc.

Feminist Frequency to disband at the end of the year







Quote
Sarkeesian cites exhaustion as the primary reason for her decision, but also adds she: “can express both a sense of pride that conversations about online abuse have become part of our lexicon, and a reality that it has come at the cost of my health and wellbeing”.
The alleged purpose of Feminist Frequency has been to highlight sexism in the video games industry.
Critics of the organization allege that Feminist Frequency’s impact has had a chilling effect on free speech and has encouraged censorship. But it’s ...

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope dev not worried about the game's sales







Quote
“The first Mario + Rabbids had more than 10 million players.
Even though it’s Mario, it’s also a genre game: turn-based tactical adventure. So we cannot expect to sell high numbers at the very beginning, because a game like that is a slow burner.
Even if at the beginning it seemed like Sparks of Hope didn’t meet expectations, we are ...

Charles Martinet Steps Back from Voicing Mario







Quote
Charles Martinet first voiced Mario in Super Mario 64, where he gave the character his iconic “wahoo” and other phrases.
Since then, he has voiced Nintendo’s mascot in every game he’s appeared in.
As a result, Martinet holds the Guinness World Record for Most Video Game Voiceover Performances as the Same Character, with 104 appearances as of Super Mario Maker 2.
Martinet is also the voice of Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi across the franchise.
Nintendo did not ...

Glug-glug-glug-glug-glug!

"Glug glug glug" celebratory sound is both the sound of a drain being unclogged and the "Power up" sound effect of a Super Mushroom, right?
Or is there any more than those twos?

I dunno, I just recall it from the movie.
Glug-glug-glug-glug-glug! (You can just hear how half-arsed Bob Hoskins was in that scene!)

Yeah, I know, I'm just thinking why they use that celebratory sound.
