Super Mario 3D All-Stars Review – Nostalgic All-Star

The most pressing issue with the entire Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundle is the fact that Nintendo did very little to bring the games into the modern age. Both Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy ported over nicely, with Sunshine getting the most love from Nintendo in terms of functionality. The 16:9 aspect ratio is appreciated in Sunshine, which makes the older, almost-square aspect ratio for Super Mario 64 even more glaring. Fortunately, the Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundle nevertheless feels like modern games thanks to how well Nintendo has implemented platforming from the start. Super Mario 64 might be the most jarring inclusion in the bundle, but its iconic status warrants it being there. Super Mario Sunshine is a neat addition and its reworked aspect ratio makes the world of a difference. Super Mario Galaxy is by far the best game in the bundle, and also translates over to the Switch controls beautifully. All three games, however, load exceptionally fast and play well. There are no frame losses or weird glitches anywhere. Visually, they are all set apart, but some of the titles have aged better than others. Regardless of how they look, this is the best bundle any Super Mario fan can get.

Marvel’s Avengers Review – Geektastic Story, Dull Multiplayer

Beyond the horrible repetition and seemingly tacked-on multiplayer, Marvel’s Avengers genuinely features a golden single-player narrative. Kamala Khan is one of the best and most surprising additions to the game. Her highly relatable personality is exceptionally geeky, and pushes the campaign in wonderful, albeit cliched, directions. Character progression can be a bit tedious outside of single player, with a handful of missions, bosses, and enemies that tick the necessary boxes at first. Sadly, the very same aspects that work exceptionally well in single-player serve as nothing more than unnecessary effort and filler in multiplayer. At its core, Marvel’s Avengers has a serious identity crisis. It absolutely is worth picking up for any comic book fan to enjoy the super narrative, but ultimately has very little replay value for anyone who dislikes monotonous grinding.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Review – Bottom of the Barrel

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is, ultimately, one of the worst games this side of the current console generation. While it has some cool-looking comic book cutscenes and a decent story, the campaign quickly devolves into a repetitive grind with no real end. The grind is so boring that players actively feel encouraged to spend real-world money just to get anywhere in the game. This is astonishing, to say the least, and extremely unacceptable. Multiplayer would make sense if played with friends, but after a little while, there is no feasible reason to continue playing. Wrestlers feel generic and unoriginal, except for the five overarching classes. Frankly, the game is not worth recommending, not even for the most hardcore of wrestling fans.
