    I don't have hard evidence but the moment this released, Twitter went down, and it's a pretty fun thing to consider that this broke Twitter.

    Just for reference, it might seem like Minecraft came out ago yesterday... but it actually came out 11 years ago!

    I played it when it came out when I was a kid (sort of, for some definition of kid), and now I'm an adult. There's real nostalgia value for people in the early to mid twenties for it, it's not just a new fangled kids thing.

      I played it when the game was in Alpha. I remember a friend and I would just fly around in servers destroying everything, because we were, you know, 15. Good times.

      Weird but honest question for you; does Waluigi have an actual fanbase, or is it all just "ironic"? Because every time I see waluigi brought up it seems like it's somewhat mean-spirited in nature.

        I mean... I guess kind of? Purple is my favorite color and I, like waluigi, am a weird lanky looking dude with bad facial hair. Which makes me more of a fan of him than any other of the other 3....

        I mean... I guess kind of? Purple is my favorite color and I, like waluigi, am a weird lanky looking dude with bad facial hair. Which makes me more of a fan of him than any other of the other 3. I’m not legitimately mad or offended Waluigi isn’t in the game but yeah if I had a choice I’d put Waluigi in any game over Mario, Luigi, or Wario.

    That's just, unbelievable. Imagine how much they payed to secure the rights for it.

      Probably none? This is a clear win-win situation. Nintendo gets attractive DLC, Microsoft gets significant advertisement, both franchises will get a bump from combined hype.

    This seems like something that would have been really neato for the kids...almost a decade ago. Still, I guess it's pretty cool for them and all; it just seems really late in the day.

      A decade ago, Minecraft absolutely wasn't as popular as it is today. 5 years, maybe, but Microsoft expanded the market reach quite a bit.

      Minecraft hasn't been the cool new thing that kids are doing anything they can to play in school for a long time, but it has incredible legs. It's been normalized as just a thing which is always around and always extremely popular.

      It's just about as relevant as ever.

      Pretty much perfect for the 20-something demographic of Smash Bros that played Minecraft as a kid or in their teens, though.
