CW meta, genital shitpost in screenshot, rape mention 

In 2004, to promote the release of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Nintendo of America donated 1000 doors to nonprofit homebuilding organization Habitat for Humanity.

The Nintendo Switch version of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker contains an unused model called "Stalker", which depicts a simplistic cube-shaped creature holding a knife. This was likely a test version of an enemy that was planned to be added to the Nintendo Switch port.

A pre-release screenshot of the Waluigi Stadium track in Mario Kart: Double Dash shows that in that version, the audience consisted of countless Marios, Luigis, Warios and Waluigis. This was removed in the finished game, likely due to these characters being supposedly unique.

In Super Mario 64, holding R in the "Lakitu/Stop" camera mode allows Mario to get arbitrarily far away from the camera. Doing it in a course with atmospheric fog, like Jolly Roger Bay or Tick Tock Clock, shows that Mario's model is not affected by fog and always remains visible.

someone on twitter said "want shorter games with worse graphics made by people who are paid more to work less and i'm not kidding" and man do i agree.

Goombella is the only character from the original pre-Sticker Star Paper Mario continuity to be referenced in both Paper Mario: Sticker Star (left, on a note in Level 5-1) and in Paper Mario: Color Splash (right, the Pry Guy enemy's book is identical to her Tattle Log).

During a visit to Frankfurt, Germany in 2004, a correspondent of the British NGC magazine has asked randomly chosen German citizens on the street to draw Mario and Yoshi; he mentions that to his surprise, most people knew the characters in question. Here are their drawings.

I want you to watch, listen, read, appreciate art that's genuinely unheard-of. I want you to play games on in itchio and watch videos with less than a thousand views. I want you to buy an album from someone who might have never made money on their music.
It's such a unique and deep experience to connect to art like this, and it's even better to reach out to the artists and let them know

In Super Mario Maker 2, if the Boss/Final Boss sound effects are placed on an enemy, the music will play automatically when it is on screen, which it does not with non-enemy objects. An exception is the snowball, which the game considers to be an enemy.

In a 2013 Year of Luigi interview, Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that he would be open to creating another brother for Mario and Luigi in the future.

America in 2020. People using forged (and mis-spelled) cards from a fictitious organisation to misrepresent legislation intended to protect disabled people so they can avoid showing a basic amount of courtesy to help protect others during a pandemic.

Not only is this bullshit ableist as hell, it would literally be easier just for these people to put a damn mask on their faces.

If you're in the US and someone hands you one of these, cut it in two and throw it in the trash.

oh my god lol
people who live near the CHAZ have apparently been entering the zone to see the volunteer doctors there because they can't afford healthcare
you can't make this up

The data for Super Mario RPG includes an unused enemy mind-reading message: "I REALLY hate males...!" The game contains many unused enemies, but it is likely the message belongs to one of the eight pictured here, as they do not already have other messages assigned to them.

Just a reminder, Chell is not white. She's usually drawn as a white woman because Gamersโ„ข are uncomfortable with anything not specifically aimed at them.

i mean they straight up lied over and over a8out how they just "couldnt put all the pokemon in the game" and how they would "never release the other pokemon later on"

there was even a really 8ig leak a8out how they lied a8out WHY they didn't put the pokemon in in the first place and it had something to do with no8ody knowing how to transfer the pokemon models 8etween systems so they could update them or something? so they had to make do with the ones they already had transferred over 8efore whoever it was in charge of that left

and of course the leak also included how the whole "we're not going to add pokemon in later" thing was a lie and how in the meeting they literally said they would say that and then turn around later and say they were

which they ended up doing, in the form of the DLC

Listen. I am begging you to flood my timeline with touhou lore, or z80 assembly programming, or how you fucking love lisp, or giant robots, or whatever the fuck else you're into. Fucking do it, you fucking nerds. Don't act like you don't want to.

Twitter the website is complaining about their suckass lack of accessibility, and explaining that they only have volunteers for their accessibility team - no paid positions, no actual plan

I wonder how Mastodon made alt text and content warnings a thing without the billions in investor money that Twitter gets
