The End Of Mario Draws Near

"The end of Mario draws near".

If any Nintendo gamer reads a headline like that, the first thing that would pop into their heads would be "huh? what? did I miss anything?" and probably followed by "what a load of bull....".

I mean, seriously. We all know that Nintendo isn't in their best place right now, but to read that the end of Mario is basically a given? How even? Wh...

Are We Already Playing the NX's First Game?

[Note: This post has grown beyond the boundaries of a normal post. If you start reading now, you might finish just in time for the NX launch! The title is also not meant as clickbait, but I figured another "here's what I think of NX rumors" title would just not be original anymore. In any case, enjoy!]

"If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all "part of the plan." But when I say the letters "NX", well, then everyone loses their minds!"

Aside from a little creative editing of the Dark Knight's Joker quote, it is true that these days many, if not all, Nintendo fans are so eagerly awaiting ANY news on the NX that it makes everyone jump on every little tidbit or rumor. Not surprising, since Nintendo still hasn't said anything in regards to the system (systems?) even though 2016 is now well underway. 

As quite the impatient Nintendo fan myself, I feel that Nintendo should reveal the system(s) sooner, rather than later. Not only because rumors are starting to pile up, but also because the endless speculation and thoughts and such, are starting to wear a bit thin. If you're waiting in a restaurant and it takes forever for your food to arrive, especially if you were already hungry to begin with, in the end you don't even care what they're putting on the table as long as they finally put something on the damn table. I don't need the waiter to keep reminding me that the food will be there shortly. That'll only annoy me more. Same with NX news.

It has been quite a few months since the last redesign (seriously, blame the 700 hours I put into Super Mario Maker), but with 2016 now upon us, it's time to get on the hype train for the NX, whatever that might be. 

Rumored to be so many things, as well as releasing this very year, the NX will be on every Nintendo fan's mind. I am no different in this regard, so decided to clean MPN up and for now we're called MPNX. 

I hope you guys like the banner, simple and clean with Randy of course taking center stage and Arnold's sunglasses have now been replaced with a VR like visor. Even the little guy likes to stay current. 

In any case, I'm planning on posting my views on NX very soon, at least on what I hope the system (or systems) is and of course get all giddy about it. So, look forward to that. 

For now I'm off to play some more Xenoblade Chronicles X and wish you all a very nice sunday!
