Super Mario Odyssey and the future of the solo action game

Ryan Lambie Nov 15, 2017

How to marry longevity with a single-player campaign that can hold our interest for 50 hours or more? Super Mario Odyssey has the answer...

Nb: The following contains very mild spoilers for Super Mario Odyssey.

In the wild frontier of videogames, things seldom remain the same for long. Properties come and go. Company mascots quietly check themselves into retirement homes. Once popular genres can wither into obscurity. Quick-fix, 80s arcade experiences gave way to the kinds of games that lasted eight hours or so in the 90s and 2000s; with many of today's online shooters and RPGs, the constant drip-feeds of content can keep us playing for months.

Taking these changing tastes into account, it left us wondering: how can Nintendo's venerable Super Mario franchise - a resolutely single-player,

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s the best documentary series you’ve seen on TV? Opening this up to past series, current ones, and those that you may have seen screeners for that are coming up soon.

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

While we debate whether or not it technically counts as a TV show (certainly that Oscar it won would suggest otherwise), “O.J.: Made in America” was without question a seminal work, and one which owed a lot to its episodic structure while proving to be an addictive binge. Documentaries aren’t exactly my favorite genre, but “Made in America” was as gripping as any scripted series — and we have definitive proof of this,

Emmy Contenders Like Alfre Woodard, Kristen Bell Pull Double Duty in Guest Spots

Emmy Contenders Like Alfre Woodard, Kristen Bell Pull Double Duty in Guest Spots
it’s becoming more common to see actors pulling double-duty on television; particularly with the ever-growing list of actors appearing in guest spots. Some of those actors could even find themselves eligible for Emmy recognition in more than one category.

For actors enjoying a regular role on television, recognition in the guest category can be an extra bonus. Oscar nominee and four-time Emmy winner Alfre Woodard made an exciting villain on “Luke Cage,” but still found time to appear in two episodes of “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” both for Netflix. As for finding time to play the two roles, she says the shooting dates were “close enough to be, ‘Yikes,’ but I didn’t have to balance Mariah Dillard’s dastardly deeds and the hyper-vigilant grammarian Aunt Josephine in the same shooting schedule.” She then points to her lengthy theater background, noting: “But we’ve all done repertory!”

But ultimately, actors

Adam Savage, Alie Ward Find Ge Tech “In The Wild” In New Branded Web Series

General Electric (Ge) is fortunate to be a business whose everyday operations can make for a compelling viewing experience, and the conglomerate’s latest web series takes advantage of that fact. It has tapped one-time myth buster Adam Savage and fellow TV personality Alie Ward as the hosts of In The Wild, a show that explores some of Ge’s most impressive innovations in the world of tech.

Savage and Ward both have plenty of personality to go around, but the real stars of In The Wild are the machines in its spotlight. In the show’s premiere, its two hosts head to Greenville, South Carolina, where they get to play with a top-of-the-line 3D printer that uses “additive” technology. The exuberance displayed by Savage and Ward gives In The Wild a kid-in-a-candy-store feel.

Ge is no stranger to branded video content. It was an early adopter of Vine, and

Szenja the Polar Bear Dies Unexpectedly at SeaWorld, PETA Says Cause Is “a Broken Heart”

From the death of beloved Knut in 2011, to the “World’s Saddest Polar Bear” in Argentina, and the passing of cub Fritz in Germany last month — not to mention the “depressed polar bear trapped in a mall in China” — polar bears, it seems, are no strangers to heartbreak.

According to NBC News San Diego, a 21-year-old polar bear named Szenja, who was born in captivity at Germany’s Wuppertal Zoo and lived at SeaWorld San Diego’s Wild Arctic exhibit since the 1990s, died at the marine park on Tuesday. While the official cause of death is still pending necropsy,

7 Animals that Definitely Get More Sleep Than You

7 Animals that Definitely Get More Sleep Than You
Happy Sleep in Public Day!

If you are a cog in the daily grind, you have probably celebrated this holiday a few times throughout the year. Animals, they indulge in public sleep everyday. That’s what happens when the world is your bedroom.

Of course, there are a few creatures who succumb to snooze sessions more than others. While doctors recommend humans get at least 7 hours of sleep a day, these animals clock in with double that amount — sometimes triple.

Listen To Martin Garrix’s End Of The Year Mix

Martin Garrix is definitely a DJ who knows how to ring in the new year with style. We’ve already heard an unreleased song from the Dutch DJ dubbed “Scared To Be Lonely” that was unveiled during his stint at Ava Nye 2016, and now his end of the year mix has hit the internet for our listening pleasure.

Comprised of nineteen tracks and clocking in at an hour long, Garrix’s year end mix is packed to the brim with a number of his top releases from 2016, as well as plenty of other goodies. A number of songs from the producer’s Ade week marathon surface in the tracklist, like “Spotless” with Jay Hardway and “Welcome” with Julian Jordan. Alesso and Axwell Λ Ingrosso pop up as well, before Garrix brings the mix to a fitting close with his Bebe Rexha collaboration “In The Name Of Love.”

First Teaser For Ulrich Seidl’s African Trophy Hunting Documentary ‘Safari’

After directing some of the most acclaimed films of the century thus far with his Paradise trilogy, Austrian director Ulrich Seidl is back this year with a new feature. As with much of his work, Safari looks to stretch the boundaries of the documentary form as he explores African trophy hunting.

In the works for many years, the first trailer has now arrived, which offers a brief, unsubtitled tease as we see a number of hunters before a glimpse at one of their kills. Considering the controversy around the topic, we imagine this may rightfully cause quite a stir when it lands this fall in Austria, as well as likely on the festival circuit.

Check out the trailer and synopsis below thanks to Screen Anarchy.

Africa. In the wild expanses, where bushbucks, impalas, zebras, gnus and other creatures graze by the thousands, they are on holiday. German and Austrian hunting tourists drive through the bush,

Ulrich Seidl's Safari Teaser Arrives

One of the greatest documentary filmmakers on the planet, Austria's Ulrich Seidl has built a loyal following around the world thanks to his ability to approach frequently difficult - and often very odd - subject matter with a curious, non-judgemental eye. Seidl's gift is his ability to find the core of his subjects and present them as they are while leaving it to his audience to grapple with the import of what they're viewing. It's an approach that is deeply engaging, frequently quite funny, and often very challenging. His latest effort - Safari - will surely fall into that latter category for a great many people. Africa. In the wild expanses, where bushbucks, impalas, zebras, gnus and other creatures graze by the thousands, they are...

We Really Found Out What Wildfire Is Capable of on the Game of Thrones Finale

Wildfire is one of the most dangerous substances in the Game of Thrones universe. That's saying a lot in a world where the dead walk and dragons live. This green liquid that burns everything it touches has been the downfall of at least two Targaryens, Joffrey's saving grace when under attack from his uncle Stannis Baratheon, and now, a deadly weapon against the High Sparrow. Perhaps we thought the use of wildfire would stop after Tyrion uses it to obliterate Stannis's fleet at the Battle of the Blackwater, but given that Bran Stark has visions of a wildfire explosion and Cersei Lannister clearly isn't afraid to use it, we don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. So, let's go over all of its properties, shall we? What We Know of Wildfire It burns green and is bright green when in liquid form. It continues to burn until it burns itself out and is quite explosive.

Martin Garrix Debuts Unreleased ID At Indy 500 Snake Pit

Martin Garrix remained quiet on the release front for the beginning of 2016, but with festival season ramping up he appears eager to strike while the iron is hot. The Dutch progressive house DJ/producer just made waves with last week’s release of “Lions In The Wild,” and he’s now built up additional momentum by premiering even more unreleased music.

During his performance at Indy 500 Snake Pit (the electronic music event that coincides with the Indy 500 Races in Indiana), Garrix dropped a lighthearted track predicated on melodic vocal cuts. An 8-bit-reminiscent synth lead occupies segments of the song with a distinctly more downplayed vibe than the rest, making for an enjoyable track that we’re eager to hear more of.

As of right now, Martin Garrix has yet to announce a title, release date or any other information for the new song. He has revealed though that his next

Martin Garrix Comes Into His Own As A Producer With “Lions In The Wild”

Martin Garrix has kept his fans waiting for new music ever since he announced the launch of Stmpd Rcrds back in March, and at long last his first major single has arrived. He first debuted his collaboration with UK duo Third Party during his performance at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, and has now released the monumental track through his brand new imprint.

Even as a music critic who hasn’t universally celebrated what Garrix puts out, I can honestly cite “Lions In The Wild” as evidence that the Dutch superstar is coming into his own as a producer. He hasn’t done away with the barbaric kicks and grandiose synth leads that defined his earlier releases, but his attention to subtleties in the track’s arrangement speak to his evolved conceptual understanding.

Martin Garrix hasn’t made any public statements explaining how he came to work with Third Party,

Martin Garrix Reveals What His Next Two Releases Will Be

Martin Garrix has already made mention of his debut album a couple of times in 2016, which likely accounts for his sparse releases so far this festival season. However, the Dutch DJ/producer just revealed what the titles of his next two official tracks will be.

A fan baited Garrix by Tweeting him about the prospect of new music, which prompted the following exchange:

@nobody_wolf first release will be Lions in the wild this month after that name of love

Martin Garrix (@MartinGarrix) May 15, 2016

Garrix debuted both “Lions In The Wild” and “Name of Love” during his set at Ultra Music Festival in March, but only rips of each from the performance have been available up to this point. Needless to say, when the high-quality versions of them come out, they’ll surely find their way into countless live sets over the coming months.

Speaking of which, Martin Garrix still

The Neighbors 2 Trailer Is Raunchy, Sexy And Hysterical

In the wild and raunchy comedy Neighbors, Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne played suburban parents who had to tap back into their hard-partying days to take down a fraternity filled with noisy idiots. The movie was a smash success, so a sequel seemed inevitable. The first full trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising just dropped, and eased the fears of fans who might have thought director Nicholas Stoller was going to shake up the winning formula too drastically. If you loved Neighbors, you’re likely going to love this: The script is flipped ever so slightly in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, as the title implies. The fraternity isn’t jeopardizing Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly’s (Rose Byrne) way of living. This time out, it’s a fledgling sorority led by Chloe Grace Moretz, who’s unhappy that Selena Gomez’s sorority doesn’t ...
