Nintendo Fans, Given The Chance To Post Porn, Crack Jokes Instead

Something went wrong today with the Mario & Luigi section of Nintendo's Miiverse community, allowing users to post any kind of image (so long as they could view it on the Wii U's web browser), not just a screenshot of the game they're playing.

The Excellent Pokémon Art Academy Art of the Past 24 Hours

The new game, Pokémon Art Academy, allows you to upload your Pokémon artwork to the Miiverse.

When Things Are Bad, There's Always Super Mario Games

Aww. While you can find a variety of posts on Miiverse, finding one like this one in Super Mario 3D World—which was posted this weekend by Tiny Cartridge—makes you wish it's just a post where it is someone pulling your leg and not actually a kid throwing out a cry for help. » 12/02/13 8:30pm 12/02/13 8:30pm

This Guy Really Wants Shrek To Be In The New Smash Bros

Oh, Miiverse. You've got such amusing characters making all sorts of silly posts. Take "Sakurai" here, a poster which cronicstate found, for instance. Sakurai is almost assuredly a troll, but everyone takes the bait and argues with him over the possibility of having Dreamwork's Shrek in the new Super Smash Bros.

"Y Cant Metroid Crawl" Guy Beats Metroid, Is Hilarious

Last time we checked in on Miiverse, some players were having trouble with Super Metroid. We shook our heads. We snarked about them damn spoiled kids. But at least one of those folks— PaulyU—persevered and finished the game. Here's the spoilery proof. » 5/28/13 7:45pm 5/28/13 7:45pm
