    I figured that they're just typical biomes, but when someone says, "sci-fi biomes", Star Wars always comes to mind, and someone says, "video game biomes", SMB3 always comes to mind.

    I'm sure Bowser would find himself at home on Mustafar.

    I wonder if New Donk City is where the Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. arcade games take place.

    That's the implication.

    I'm mostly avoiding details about Odyssey and holding off until Christmas to play it, but I'm really excited about it! Until then, I'll try to finish the last 19 shrines in Zelda.

    I got all the Shrines late last month, and now I'm all ready to jump into Odyssey. It's been a long wait, but it's nearly here.

    Odyssey is looking like the big game to get me fully into the series, just as Breath of the Wild did for Zelda earlier in the year.
    The game just looks so fun, so energised, that it's easy to fall for the charm it oozes and want to play it.

    Maybe Mario and Luigi are from New Donk City, and they wear hats because everyone in New Donk City wears hats.

    Been playing a few hours of Odyssey, and it is fantastic (and it has the reviews to match that impression). Its one of the most charming, inventive and strangest Mario games ever. Its not open world like the last Zelda game is, but still tons of content.

    I'm also of the opinion of a fantastic game. Having avoided spoilers, I'm being treated to a whole lot of new stuff, and one of my favourite things so far is the ending of New Donk City. Such a great set-piece there.

    A bit of great Nintendo geography geekery: this video mashes up the exterior and interior of Peach’s castle in SM64 (the castle has a bit of a TARDIS problem, lol).

    In terms of pure gameplay, it's the most fun I've had with a game in years. I like it more than Breath of the Wild, and that's saying something.

    It really is a phenomenal game. Some minor gripes with the controls and camera, but they're few and far between and certainly not foreign to the genre. I'm a little over halfway finished collecting all the moons, and despite some frustrating challenges, it's been a blast. Really everything I could've hoped for.
