Yes, I should have worded that better.  I'm saddened by the fact that most people don't buy or listen to entire albums anymore. 

No, but I will.  Thanks

Haven't there always been popular short 3 to 4 minute pop songs? I don't think any musical era was filled with epic saga albums as a majority...

Janelle MonĂ¡e probably has the biggest popular concept albums currently. Have you listened to those?

Tired of the same old Mario music?  Starting now, WTMK is broadcasting nothing but the least played tunes of 2017.  If it was played more than once last year, you won't hear it!  Tune in and see what obscurity you missed!

« Last post by Luigison on January 28, 2018, 08:27:40 PM »
As some of the long timers may remember I am a fan of thematic albums and thus my list below: 

Date Artist Album MyStarRating
1972 David Bowie:  The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust And the Spiders from Mars David Bowie ***
1975 The Who:  Tommy *
1979 Pink Floyd:  The Wall ****
1983 Styx:  Mr. Roboto **
1988 Queensryche:  Operation Mindcrime *****
2004 Green Day:  American Idiot ***
2009 Coheed and Cambria:  Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow ***

I am saddened by the current popular short 3 to 4 minute pop songs.  If anyone has any long form suggestions or disagrees with my above ratings please let me know.  I welcome any and all discussion.  Thanks in advance!

Better than being stuck on a screen. It's something different. Use it in other games as a novelty.

I've already pre-ordered the variety kit.  My daughter loves making things out of cardboard already so I think this will be perfect for her.

Mostly interested in dem new outfits. Wonder if they'll be outrageously expensive for all the time we've had to get coins.

Game Blog / Mario news round-up from today's Nintendo Direct Mini
« Last post by Deezer on January 11, 2018, 10:38:35 PM »
Today's Nintendo Direct Mini webcast revealed new games and game updates for Mario and friends. Here's a quick recap:

* The Wii U platformer Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be re-released on the red-hot Nintendo Switch on May 4. This version adds Funky Kong as a playable character.

* Mario and friends are ready to serve up another tennis game, this time on the Switch. Mario Tennis Aces will launch sometime this spring.

* In an upcoming free update to Super Mario Odyssey, Luigi will host a new mode called "Balloon World." You can hide balloons in the various kingdoms and see how fast you can find the balloons hidden by other players around the world. New outfits and snapshot filters will also be included in the update, which will be available in February.

* A new DLC pack coming this spring to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will include Donkey Kong and a new world. The price has yet to be annouced.

This game is different. The first word of the post must be the same as the last word of the previous post. Can be a noun or a phrase

E.G.
Post 1: Nintendo Switch.
Post 2: Switch on the light.
Post 3: Light or heavy.
(Pretty bad examples.)
(But funnier and more creative.)
