Super Mario Galaxy's game-breaking mushroom has been fixed for Super Mario 3D All-Stars

The cursed mushroom has been cured

Here's a really interesting bit of trivia about Super Mario Galaxy that you might not know. There's a single mushroom in the game that you can't access through normal means, and if that mushroom is removed from the game's code, the entire game crashes. Super Mario Galaxy, as well as its follow-up, need that mushroom in order to run properly.

It appears Nintendo has gone in and fixed the load-bearing mushroom for the Super Mario 3D All-Stars version of Super Mario Galaxy. While the mushroom still exists in the game's files as model data, it can be yanked from the game's code without causing an issue.

Why did this mushroom need to be present to begin with? There are some rumblings that an early version of Super Mario Galaxy had some sort of playable mushroom component. When Nintendo scrapped that and moved on, part of the code tied to the game remained tied to that mushroom, and removing it borked the entire game. Instead of trying to figure out the issue, Nintendo just hid the mushroom outside the normal methods of play, and called it a day!

Temtem updated with Housing system and new areas

Temtems find a home

Temtem isn't coming to Switch until Spring 2021, but today we have some new details on what we can expect at launch.

The PC version of the game has just gotten an update, and it adds in some nifty new features. Check out the complete breakdown below.

The Housing system has arrived.

You can now own and decorate your own house on Atoll Row. In order to get a house, you need to do a quest and pay a fee for the terrain. The quest can be started at Coral Plaza in Omninesia.

Everyone can now explore Atoll Row, and visit the homes of other Tamers. Instead of having an instantiated housing system, where players would travel to their own house, Atoll Row is an endless array of neighborhoods. You can walk the infinity of Atoll Row and every single player house will be there, without any loadings or wait times.

Furniture stores located in the current four available areas have opened their doors. You can now visit them and buy furniture for your house decoration needs.

Access to new areas in Kisiwa: Kilima Peaks and the Barafu Glacier.

You can now board the cable car, explore the coldest areas of the Kilima Range, and discover the famous Temtem that inhabit it.
