Super Mario Odyssey - Twitter update for April 16th, 2018

In today's Twitter update for Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo is giving Uncle amiibo a bit of love with some concept art. I still can't get over the name for this thing. There's a lot of things in the Mario universe that have some interesting and weird names, but this one just bugs me so much! I think they could have come up with something better than Uncle amiibo. Am I just being a complainer?!

More costume DLC coming to Super Mario Odyssey

While they didn't reveal specifics, Nintendo has said that more costume DLC is going to make its way to Super Mario Odyssey. The datamine from a few weeks back might give us an indication of what costumes to expect, but we still don't know when they'll actually release, or if they'll be free/paid. It seems that Nintendo has plans to spring these costumes on us randomly, so we'll just have to sit back, wait, and be surprised when they pop up!

Random Time! - Man looks to sell girlfriend's Switch when he finds out she was cheating on him

Mitch wanted to get his girlfriend a special gift, so he bought her the Super Mario Odyssey Switch bundle. Quite the gift indeed, but now Mitch doesn't think his girlfriend is worthy of hte gift. Ex-girlfriend I should say, as Mitch found out she had been cheating on him.

“Bought this for the missus, turns out she’d rather be playing with strangers’ willies than Legend Of Zelda so I’m selling it. Limited edition Mario version. Full working order. No box because she threw it out.”

While the whole story is a bit sad, there's a silver lining. Turns out Mitch's post has caught the attention of some new potential suitors, and they want him to know they're definitely down for some Switch fun!

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!
