Good morning TAY! October is finally here, the month of spooks, “punkins”, and Super Mario Odyssey. Yeah... actually forget Halloween and pumpkin carving (although there might be another pumpkin carving contest for y’all to participate), there’s only one thing on my mind and that is...

SING MY LUNGS OUT TO THE LYRICS OF “ONE UP GIRL”

I don’t think I’ve ever been excited for a game like this in quite a while, and that’s with the caveat that 2017 has been a year where we’ve had GOTY after GOTY (Yakuza 0, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, and many more). I have been trying to keep my hype levels down but... it’s a new Mario title akin to the golden age of 3D gaming, the one that Yooka-Laylee failed to kickstart.

Between Odyssey, A Hat in Time and... wait there aren’t any other collect-a-thons out there, are there? Well between these two games I’m looking to revive some old memories and see if the genre can really survive in the much more competitive year 2017.
