Disney's Wreck-It Ralph trailer features an all-star cast of gaming's baddest villains

Look, we cover video games here at Joystiq. And when we're talking games, we try not to let our occasional bouts of fanboy excitement shine through. Thankfully for us, Wreck-It Ralph is a Disney film featuring video games, so we can totally geek out over the latest, nostalgia-laced trailer. Beyond...

New Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story trailer from the inside, out

We're just about as excited as we could be for the next iteration in the long-running Mario & Luigi RPG series, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. It's been so long since we last got to try our hand at timing-centric, turn-based combat in the Mushroom Kingdom and, well, we really enjoyed...

Bowser gets starring role in Mario & Luigi 3

Mario & Luigi 3 won't just limit you to playing as the titular plumbers -- you'll also spend part of the game in control of arch-nemesis Bowser. Typically for the series, this turn of events comes about in wacky fashion, with Mario and Luigi finding themselves trapped inside Bowser (after he...

A brief history of Club Nintendo Awesomeness

Last week we prompted some rich scholarly debate about Bowser's kids, as literally hundreds of comments (precise statistics unverified) argued back and forth as to whether the Koopaling characters are worth a damn. Today we return to pose another question: What are mini-bosses, exactly? Are...

It's-a Mario World: Koopa Kids

Lately we have found ourselves pondering the Koopa family lineage in all of its complexity. Bowser seems to have outdone himself in the procreation department, but no one seems to know who mothered his children. It seems likely that Princess Peach did at least some of the laboring, given the...

It's-a Mario World: Underrated Foes

In our last issue, we spent a lot of time rambling about the recurring foes you know and love (or hate) of Mario games. Popular baddies like Goombas, Piranhas and Koopas have carved out quite a place for themselves in the franchise, such that we've come to expect them anywhere we see Mario...

Bowser's minions vent their frustrations

It isn't easy being one of Bowser's minions. Aside from the constant defeat at the hands of the Mario brothers, apparently there are some severe restrictions each class of baddie must adhere to in their roles as Bowser's employees. It's a tough life, we imagine, and a job we would certainly not...
