Money Money Badge Paper Mario Thousand Year Door

The Money Money Badge is one of the most useful Badges Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door has to offer. It drastically increases the number of Coins you earn after a battle, and there are two instances of these Badges that you can collect. You can get the first one by grinding Piantas at the Pianta Parlor, which is fairly self-explanatory. The second one, however, is given as a prize via a Boo in the Creepy Steeple. If you can pass his quiz, you’ll eventually receive a second Money Money Badge.

Triumvirate guide Splatoon 3

The Triumvirate is a new King Salmonid challenge introduced alongside Splatoon 3’s Big Big Run event. Like the other King Salmonid battles, the Triumvirate has a chance of appearing at the end of Wave 3 if your King Salmonid meter is full. When it appears, you’ll need to take on a Cohozuna, Horroboros, and Megalodontia all at once. This is one of Splatoon 3’s greatest challenges, and we’ve written up a Triumvirate guide with all of the best strategies and tips for taking down all three King Salmonids in one go. When the Triumvirate appears, you will be given a random Grizzco weapon, which means there’s a certain element of randomness to winning the battle.

How to take Switch Screenshots

Switch screenshots have been a thing ever since the console’s release back in 2017. Unfortunately, sharing these screenshots and video just got harder – thanks to the newly-raised (and extremely high) cost of Twitter / X’s API, every major game console has cut support for the platform. Nintendo was the last to do so, and support for screenshot and video sharing on Twitter officially ended on June 11. Fortunately, there’s an incredibly easy way to share Switch screenshots and videos that has gone rather overlooked until now – and if you want to continue sharing your content, you’ll definitely want to know about it.

Switch performance patch

Today, we’re looking at a bunch of high-profile Switch games and which ones would most benefit from a performance patch on the next console.

A little while back, a new rumor emerged that claimed a port of Breath of the Wild for Nintendo’s next console is in development. Though we aren’t sure of the specifics, the main reason to port this game would be to up the performance to 60 frames per second with even higher visual quality. This got us thinking: if games are getting performance patches on Switch 2, which of Nintendo’s first-party Switch games could use a boost?

whacka boss fight guide paper mario thousand year door

For those playing through the Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door on Switch, we have a guide explaining how to defeat the game’s secret postgame boss.

There are two secret bosses newly introduced in the game. One of them becomes available after Chapter 5, while the other becomes available after clearing the Pit of 100 Trials for the very first time. Since these bosses are new to the game, we aren’t spoiling their identities right out the gate. That being said, this guide will contain full spoilers on how to defeat this boss, so you may want to come back later if you’d rather not learn its identity just yet. This particular boss is rather difficult (and takes a long time to get to), so you’ll want to prepare yourself as best you can.
