Season of Switch: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

April 14, 2017

Over a month has gone by since the debut of the Nintendo Switch (the inspiration for Season of Switch), and it looks like it's a runaway success - Nintendo's latest console has sold around 1 million units since March 3, making it the fastest-selling Nintendo console! Also, the company announced some new games for the Switch in its April 12th Nintendo Direct. Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (also known as Luigi's Mansion 2 in some regions), released for the 3DS in 2013 as a part of the Year of Luigi, had some big shoes to fill as the successor to Luigi's Mansion for the GameCube, released in 2001. The original brought Luigi out of his brother's shadow as he explored a haunted mansion, guided by Professor E. Gadd (pun intended), inventor of the Poltergust 3000 (another pun intended) that Luigi uses to capture ghosts inhabiting the mansion. Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon brings Luigi to the aptly…

Season of Switch: Super Mario Galaxy

March 07, 2017

Welcome to the first-ever Season of Switch post! Kicking off this season is, of course, the launch of the Nintendo Switch itself four days ago; it's been sold out almost everywhere since then. In fact, it's said that the Switch has sold faster than the Wii did in its first few days after launch! While there have been a few hardware (screen bezels scratching when docking) and software (Joy-Con syncing) issues, reviews are mostly positive. The console has real potential, and that will continue to be shown through software fixes and new games that will be released over time. Anyway, it's time for the first game feature: Super Mario Galaxy! Super Mario Galaxy, released in 2007, holds special significance for me: it's the first Mario game I ever played. I was drawn in by its stunning, bright graphics, motion-control-powered gameplay, and the story, and I had to know more about and play more…

Mario Sports Mix Continued

February 05, 2011

I'm back in the month of February! You know what that means...Mario Sports Mix came out yesterday in the UK, and will come out in TWO DAYS in North America. Mario Sports Mix already came out in January at Australia, Asia, and Europe, and came out in NOVEMBER 2010 in Japan!

You can also play as your Miis from the Mii Channel on the Wii. There are also some guest appearances from characters of Square Enix games. Check it out!

NY Times Crossword: Luigi (Again?), and...STAR TREK?

January 17, 2011

Happy Martin Luther King Day and 2011! Sorry it has been so long since I last wrote (in 2010). Back in good old Summer '09, I wrote a Blog entry on the old The E Club, since Luigi was in the New York Times Crossword Puzzle of that day. If I remember correctly, the clue was "Brother of Nintendo's Mario". Who wouldn't be able to figure that one out? Too bad I accidentally deleted the original entry. So, in today's NY Times Crossword (January 17, 2011), I saw another clue about Luigi. It said something like, "Video game Mario's brother". It basically says the same thing, right? So, why did I post this entry all along? Right next to that clue, there was another clue, that said something like, "Adventure with Captain Kirk". Wow! A Mario clue and a Star Trek clue...right next to each other! It took me a while to figure out that clue, but I realized the answer was "Trek". It's weird...two clues…


September 21, 2010

Nintendo just keeps thinking of ideas for new games! As a big Mario fan, I, E, am updating myself for new Mario game updates. If you are like me, you should get the same answer in this question: Is Super Mario Galaxy 2 the last Mario game released for a while? A. True | B. False If you picked B, surprisingly, you are correct! Today, I searched Nintendo's data to find a new Mario game that will be released in 2011. It is called Mario Sports Mix! It is another one of those jazzed-up Mario sports games for the Wii, that features basketball, volleyball, hockey, and dodgeball, played Mario style, with power-ups and Mario characters. In this game, you can play as: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Bowser, and Bowser Jr. You will also see non-playable characters like Shy Guys and Lakitus. The setting of these sports are played at familiar places…

Exciting new Events are here this September!

August 02, 2010

Today was an exciting day for me, even though it hardly started, because I finally got the 242nd Star in Super Mario Galaxy 2! As shown in the last Blog entry, Grandmaster Galaxy is the last galaxy in the whole game, after you collect all 120 stars and green stars, it's unlocked. It took me a long time to beat the Grandmaster Prankster Comet, The Perfect Run with Mario, but a Nunchuk glitch made Mario fall off. Finally, I beat it as Luigi. Also, this September, It's Mario's birthday and the release of the first "unofficial" Star Trek episode! In November, it's Luigi's birthday! To organize all of these events, The E Club is using Google Calendar, Google's free service for organizing events. Want to see The E Club's Events Calendar? Click here!

Super Mario Galaxy 2: Revealed!

June 20, 2010

You may have noticed that I haven't been writing on here or The E Club World lately. That is because I was playing Super Mario Galaxy 2 for a very long time, and in fact, beat it! Here are some things that may help you in this game. The Final Galaxy: Grandmaster! How to get it: Get 240/242 Stars, Green Stars included, and the secret galaxy will open up in World S. This is unlike Super Mario Galaxy, where Grand Finale Galaxy, unlocked after all 120 Stars are collected, is the easiest galaxy in the game; Grandmaster Galaxy is the HARDEST galaxy in the game! (See videos below) Grandmaster Galaxy: The Ultimate Test Grandmaster Galaxy: The Perfect Run
