The Super Mario 3D World theme has a problem.

Last night while playing Super Mario Maker 2 I discovered a software bug that I was able to replicate myself with the Maker. The bug will get Mario, or whomever you play as, stuck in a Warp Pipe and not able to do anything at the software level. System level features such as the Home and Capture button will still work. If time runs out during this glitch the game will still be stuck as Mario seems to have vanished and is unable to die.

I would call one of these releases a "Zach-ass game", but that's not why they appeal to him.

Now that we no longer have the powers of God and anime on our side, what can we play this week?

There's three downloadable card games this week for the West: Dragon Quest Builders 2 for those who can dig it sucka, God Eater 3 for the hunters in the room, and Zach Pinball. The other big release is actually more up David Lloyd's alley, as Dr. Mario World hits mobile. Please be excited.
