Mario Royale gives a Nintendo classic the battle royale treatment

first_img Share your voice 1 The way the game works is that 100 players go through the same level of Super Mario Bros. Each individual has their own instance of the game and for the most part don’t interact directly with the other players, which makes it appear that there are 99 other Mario “ghosts.” Each player can, however, interact with the level and in turn, affect the other players’ instance of the level. If one player grabs the mushroom to make Mario big, that item isn’t available to everyone else. A player could also jump on a Koopa turtle’s shell, causing it to knock into other players and kill them. Things get even more interesting when one player obtains the star and goes invincible. Now, that player is active in everyone’s instance and can eliminate anyone they touch. There are several different worlds based on levels from Super Mario Bros. Each world has four levels, and the player who reaches the last level and gets past Bowser first will be the winner. Mario Royale is available to play via a web browser, and players can use a keyboard or gamepad to control Mario.  Comment Nintendocenter_img Tags Battle royale goes 8-bit in Mario Royale.   InfernoPlus Battle Royale games such as Fornite, Apex Legends, and PUBG are incredibly popular right now.

In Sylhet, we are slightly ahead, but it is too close to call,’ Joy wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday.Joy made the predictions, based on the results of an opinion survey conducted in the three city corporations recently by Research Development Center (RDC) this month.Joy said the results of the survey, that covered 1,241 registered voters in Barishal City Corporation, show AL’s mayoral aspirant Serniabat Sadik Abdullah may bag 44 per cent votes as against Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s Mujibur Rahman Sarowar who may secure 13.1 per cent votes.The survey in Rajshahi, on 1,294 voters, said that AL’s Khairuzzaman Liton would get 58 per cent of votes compared to potential 16.4 of possible votes for BNP’s Mosaddek Hossain Bulbul, said Joy, also son of premier Sheikh Hasina.According to him, the survey in Sylhet, conducted on 1,196 registered voters, predicted a tight contest as the AL’s Badar Uddin Ahmed Kamran may get 33 per cent of votes while the BNP’s Ariful Haque Chowdhury 28.1 per cent.Joy is confident that results of the survey would turn into a reality as he said, “I have been conducting our opinion polls with RDC for the past five years. I have found their methods and results to be the most accurate.”Joy also called on the law enforcement and electoral officers to keep vigilance during the balloting.“I would, however, urge my party members, law enforcement and electoral officers to be vigilant for BNP attempts to seize polling centers and stuff ballots in an attempt to blame the Awami League.”last_img read more

A big game at both ends of the table…

first_imgTHE X FACTORMicrosoft have sold more than one million Xbox One consoles in less than 24 hours, despite users saying they have been plagued by technical problems.The next-generation gaming console is now sold out at most retailers after going on sale in 13 countries across the world on Friday, the US firm said.Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing and strategy for Xbox, said: “We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world.“Seeing thousands of excited fans lined up to get their Xbox One and their love for gaming was truly a special moment for everyone on the Xbox team.“We are working hard to create more Xbox One consoles and look forward to fulfilling holiday gift wishes this season.”But the launch has not been without problems after some gamers complained their £429 machines have been “bricked” – rendered useless by a fault – after downloading a day one update.In some cases, those reporting the update issue have been faced with an E100 error message, which does not seem to have an easy fix. West Ham v ChelseaPremier League5.30pm, Sky Sports 1IT’S BACK!Premier League? Remember that? Yes, it’s back after the frustrating break owing to England losing two matches in five days….Enough of that, some great fixtures to look forward to, and the tea-time live SKY game brings together West Ham and Chelsea at Upton Park.A big game for both sides who are at different ends of the table.A Chelsea win could see them in the top three and West Ham consigned to the bottom three.It’s a match that usually produces a few goals as our last 10 stats show:Mar 2013 Premier Chelsea 2-0 West Ham Dec 2012 Premier West Ham 3-1 Chelsea Apr 2011 Premier Chelsea 3-0 West Ham Sep 2010 Premier West Ham 1-3 Chelsea Mar 2010 Premier Chelsea 4-1 West Ham Dec 2009 Premier West Ham 1-1 Chelsea Apr 2009 Premier West Ham 0-1 Chelsea Dec 2008 Premier Chelsea 1-1 West Ham Mar 2008 Premier West Ham 0-4 Chelsea Dec 2007 Premier Chelsea 1-0 West HamChelsea haven’t traveled well so far this season with just five points from five games but in fairness they’ve had some tough early season fixtures and will be looking towards this as a key match to win to maintain their momentum towards the top of the table. It’s a good time to visit Upton Park with West Ham in a slump – just six points from nine games.Happy to back Chelsea giving away a goal on the handicap at around 15/8 with Star Sports. A decent bet for me.STAR FORECAST(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)10 points CHELSEA (-1) at around 15/8last_img read more
