Nintendo held a special Direct this week to reveal the full trailer for the upcoming Super Mario Bros movie. In the new trailer, we finally see Princess Peach, Luigi and Donkey Kong alongside the main man. We even get to see DK defeat the bejeezus from Mario, as it should. Mario’s portrayal so far seems to be that of the average guy who has to take part in saving the world – fair enough. And the gorgeous Super Mario Bros. themed cover put a genuine smile on my face.

But I don’t know – I’m still not sold. Part of that is that I’m not thrilled with Peach so far. She doesn’t seem too bad Peach to me. I wish the trailer had shown more of her than just giving Mario a pep talk – and Pratt’s Mario is a topic for another day. I’m afraid the movie will be just a collection of scenes that reference Mario Game X. In the trailer, we already have the Smash Bros scene and the Mario Kart scene. If there turns out to be a Paper Mario scene, let me know I called it.

We’ve had good and bad news this week. The bad news is that we got the cancellation of the Smash World Tour. Good news though: we’re getting a new Amnesia game from Frictional – always good to see them. Also, Activision Blizzard employees in Albany have successfully formed another union, so things haven’t been all bleak.

In more personal news, I’m gearing up for The Game Awards, which take place this Thursday, December 8. I’m ready for all the new game talk, all the useless Kojima cameos, the out of place movie trailers, the shockingly good musical performances, and maybe the awards when we have time. I’m also going to play The Callisto Protocol, because the sun sets early these days and I want some cold, dark ghosts. I haven’t really been scared of a game since Alien: Isolation, and I challenge Glen Schofield to let me break my streak.
