After announcing by the time Super Mario Odyssey for the Switch that Mario was NOT only a plumber anymore, Nintendo back paddled this week and announced once more that Mario is actually what everyone knows since the 80’s: Mario is actually a plumber!
The report showed on Nintendo Everything, and it states that Nintendo updated Mario’s Japanese bio, adding back his original profession.
This is just a quick update. If you want to know more about the Super Mario Encyclopedia, make sure you read our full article about it right here.
Anyways, we have an update on the Limited Edition of the Encyclopedia that will make Mario fans rejoice! The $80 limited edition of the Super Mario Encyclopedia will come in a surprise block slipcase with an actual surprise inside: There are four different holofoil covers

WinUAE v3.6.1 Final is released. WinUAE is the commodore amiga emulator for Windows. WinUAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500/1000/2000. A Commodore Amiga, for those who don’t know, is a 16/32 bit computer system based on the Motorola 680×0 CPU and a few specially designed custom chips that provide very good graphics and sound capabilities. Its first incarnation, the A1000, appeared in 1985, followed by the highly successful A500 and A2000 models.
WinUAE is a port of the originally written for Unixish systems UAE; but over time, it seems the Windows port, WinUAE has become the best version available on any platform. WinUAE is free software: you are welcome to distribute copies of it and/or modify it, under certain conditions. There is no warranty of any kind for UAE. For more details concerning these issues, please read the GNU General Public License, which describes the terms under which WinUAE is distributed.

If you don’t know what MAME is, MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game’s ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME currently emulates several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.
Did you knew that Nintendo used to license their classic games to be played in personal computers in Japan? That’s right! The strict “never-licensing anything” Nintendo of Japan used to allow the release of their NES and Arcade titles in Japanese computers of the 80’s, and one of these instances was a certain Donkey Kong game released on the Sharp X1 Computer in late 1984 called “Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushuu“, also know as “Donkey Kong 3: The Great Counterattack“.
Hudson Soft was granted the right to port Nintendo’s classics to these computers, and while many other Nintendo games released for computers had been dumped in the past and preserved forever on the digital world, this obscure title has not enjoyed the same fate… until now!
The gaming community was taken by surprise today with the Steam release of Chrono Trigger, the classic SNES RPG, considered by many, the best game ever made on that platform.
However, like other previous Square Enix classics ports released on Steam, this port suffers from similar issues which makes it a very poor port. It seems to me that Square Enix is not, or does not want to make it right with it’s classic titles on PC.
