It Only Took Five Hours To Beat Super Mario Odyssey Blindfolded

It Only Took Five Hours To Beat Super Mario Odyssey Blindfolded

The best speedrunners in the world can beat the Nintendo Switch game Super Mario Odyssey in under an hour. On Monday, it took speedrunner Katun24 just over five. It would have been a pretty bad performance if not for the fact that he was wearing a blindfold.

His final time, now a world record for beating the game while blindfolded, was 5:24:18, and were it not for some mistakes and bad luck,...

Shaved Mario Is Making Me Feel Strange

Shaved Mario Is Making Me Feel Strange
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

Here is a very simple, but very effective mod for Super Mario Odyssey that shaves Mario’s moustache for the entirety of the game. Cutscenes, gameplay, everything. It’s gross and I hate it.

And yet...I also cannot stop looking at it. At how young it makes him look. Like this is the Young Super Mario Chronicles. Like a...

Mario And Zelda’s New VR Modes Are Not Good

Mario And Zelda’s New VR Modes Are Not Good

Nintendo just added free updates to Nintendo Switch blockbusters Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild that introduce virtual reality modes to both games, but you’ll be perfectly fine if you skip them.

Mario Odyssey’s new VR mode consists of a trio of small custom levels that let you use Mario to quickly collect musical instruments for characters who eventually...

The games will get free updates on April 25 that add virtual reality support, using Nintendo’s $40 Labo VR goggles, which launch April 12.

Zelda, Banjo Kazooie Levels Modded Into Super Mario Odyssey

Zelda, Banjo Kazooie Levels Modded Into Super Mario Odyssey

Perhaps to give Odyssey that Smash Bros/Nintendo Museum feel, modder ItzSka has been importing custom levels into the Switch platformer, like Clanker’s Cavern from Banjo Kazooie and the exterior of Wind Waker’s Dragon Roost Island.

It’s not just the textures, either; both levels have custom collectables as well.

Here’s Clanker’s Cavern:

And here’s Dragon Roost:

Awesome Games Done Quick Ends with $2.3 Million Raised For Charity

On Friday, the charity speedrunning stream hit one million dollars for US charity Prevent Cancer Foundation. Late on Saturday night, it hit two million dollars, and the crowd went wild.

Donations hit the 2mil mark during a thrilling Super Mario Odyssey speedrun. As the run time ticked towards three hours, Twitch chat began a $5 donation chain, and the donation counter began to explode.

Player Collects Every Unique Moon In Mario Odyssey Without Taking Damage

Player Collects Every Unique Moon In Mario Odyssey Without Taking Damage

The idea behind the challenge is simple: collect all 880 unique moons in Mario Odyssey without getting hurt or dying. The execution, however, is hard, which is why it took speedrunner Timpani over 10 hours to be the first to do it, finishing in the early hours of Christmas day.

Timpani’s run is amazing to watch, not just because of the challenge involved, but also because of his ability to...

Super Mario Odyssey Is Already Playable In An Emulator

Super Mario Odyssey Is Already Playable In An Emulator

We tend to associate emulators as a means of playing old games from superseded systems, but the Yuzu emulator is different: it’s trying to run Nintendo Switch games on the PC, and it’s doing a very good job.

Yuzu was only announced in January, but is already doing big things, as we can see in this vid:

There are some graphical glitches in parts and slowdown in others, but for the...

We Were All Wrong About Mario's Nipples

We Were All Wrong About Mario's Nipples

The world lost its shit last year when Mario emerged from the seas topless, his nipples bare and out there. They were thrilling and new to behold, but it turns out they weren’t as new as everyone thought.

The tirelessly excellent Supper Mario Broth have found that Mario’s nipple debut actually came a year earlier, in 2016, in a game (and form) that nobody gave a shit about:

Look at those lil’...

A Look Back At The Odyssey Series, From Mario To Etrian To Assassin's Creed

A Look Back At The Odyssey Series, From Mario To Etrian To Assassin's Creed

Triple-A blockbuster season is heating up, which means everybody is now knee-deep in gargantuan games like Black Ops 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. These franchises have long, complicated histories—one more so than all the rest. I speak, of course, of the Odyssey series.

Currently on its tenth main series entry, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the Odyssey series has been...

Mario Odyssey's Goomba-Stacking Limit Has Been Found

Mario Odyssey's Goomba-Stacking Limit Has Been Found
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

How many Goombas can be stacked atop one another in Super Mario Odyssey? Playing normally the answer is 30, but video game developer and dissector Skelux has managed a stack of 200. A very unstable stack of 200.

They may be magical mushroom creatures, but Goombas are still subject to the laws of physics. His tower, so...

It's Nice To See Nintendo Didn't Forget About Mario 64

It's Nice To See Nintendo Didn't Forget About <i>Mario 64</i>

Last year’s great new Mario and Zelda games reinvigorated two series that seem to have finally found nostalgia for parts of their past they neglected. Super Mario Odyssey, especially, offered a tribute to Super Mario 64 that’s been overdue.

Nearly two decades of Zelda games that followed the release of 1998’s landmark Ocarina of Time chased and referenced that game’s greatness to a fault,...

Super Mario Odyssey’s Two-Moon Levels Are A Wonderful Design Touch

<i>Super Mario Odyssey</i>’s Two-Moon Levels Are A Wonderful Design Touch

In many areas of Nintendo’s crowd-pleasing Super Mario Odyssey, there’s a main goal and a side goal that provides the same amount of reward but presents a greater challenge. It’s my favorite design aspect of the game.

It’s a simple but wonderful thing, and I’ve come to think of it as Nintendo’s designers operating under a rule of twos. That’s surely not the technical term, but it works for me...

I’m Okay With 419,826th Place In <i>Mario Odyssey</i>’s Jump Rope Challenge

Every day, we make decisions about the games we will play and the things we will try to do in them. These days, I’m trying to make choices that are smarter, which I hope is the correct way to classify my decision to only try the jump-rope challenge in Super Mario Odyssey once.

I only reached the Switch game’s jump rope challenge yesterday, as I returned to Mario Odyssey after several months of...

Every <i>Super Mario Odyssey</i> Transformation, Ranked

The core innovation of Super Mario Odyssey is Mario’s companion, Cappy. Cappy is a hat that can magically possess everything from non-living objects to living characters. Toss Cappy at an enemy, and the enemy will sprout a Mario moustache and a signature red hat. Mario gains full control over the creature’s movements and abilities.

There are 52 different transformations that Mario can make...

A skip that could save up to twenty minutes in the Super Mario Odyssey speedrun has finally been proven to exist. It requires switching into two-player mode, using a Goomba stack to climb up a sheer cliff, and clipping through a pot. The problem is that it doesn’t really work.

Super Mario Odyssey, Six Months Later

Super Mario Odyssey came out last October and continues to delight players. Datamined secrets, awesome glitches, and a fancy balloon hunting mode have kept players exploring the game’s vibrant world long after other games have come and gone.

There’s been plenty of ups and downs to Super Mario Odyssey including broken scoreboards, awesome speedruns, and an underwhelming promotional cereal....
