Happy New Year + Texture Update

Brawl Mario & Luigi With Power Ups

Here is a long awaited texture post. Couldn’t upload since I’ve had no internet for nearly a year and I still don’t, but was able to visit my dad this new year’s and use his internet. Its the promised Brawl versions of Mario and Luigi with the Ice and Fire also Brawl style. There are no tweaks or updates to the textures, so they are the same as when I started on them a couple of months back, and given the video scaling, making them any better is practically unnoticeable, so no need to make them super-duper compulsively detailed. Sorry I can’t take screen caps, I don’t have my gear or Wii with me at the moment. I even uploaded the textures as ARC files instead of patches for easy replacement (and the fact that I don’t have my game to rip the original files required for patches). I’ll soon post the rest of the NSMBWii texture hacks, since they are ARC ready. I will also be creating some new ones, but those will probably be posted once I get my own ISP, which would hopefully be in 2-3 months, as I will be moving again. Hope everyone had a great new year’s!

Nintendo Power Coverage – V.234

It looks like this time around, NP had a lot of times on their hands. Volume 234 has more Previews and Reviews than usual, and to top it off, they highlight 3 games in extended reviews that look amazing. Also, Nintendo Power will be giving out a special Subscribers Edition of the magazine from now on to those that, well, subscribe. No more front-page ads for the paying member! Or is this just a scheme to waste less money when publishing the magazine? After all, subscribers do pay less, hmm…
