Darth vs Luke, Superman and kryptonite, ketchup against gravy - these are some of the all time great battles that have been fought out between our heroes. There is however one face-off that has always ruled above all else, the tale of a pesky plumber and a speedy hedgehog, the battle of Mario vs Sonic. The pair form the two most iconic characters in gaming history and have since their creation acted as Nintendo and Sega's frontmen. Recent years have seen Sonic fall second to Mario, with the success of the Wii and a poor run of hedgehog-based games. But with the arrival his 20th anniversary, and Sonic Generations looking to be a return to form for Sega's franchise, we thought it best to pit the pair against each other and see how things stand. First up, it's the vital statistics. Who are these guys, where are they from and how do their pixel forms compare to real world markers?
...and some stuff more specifically relevant to pocket gaming too
There's enough drama on there this week to satisfy even the most hardened of soap opera fanatics. With death, lies and intrigue doused liberally throughout the week's tweets, it's surprising we still found so much time to deliver up-to-the-minute, pocket gaming news. But we did, as ever, with aplomb. If you are still to get on board the feathered microblogging freight train known as Twitter, then after you have had a good long hard think about what you're doing with your life, be sure to pay our Twitter page a visit. It's as good a start as you are likely to find. Now with multi-colored cargo. First GTA for iPhone headlines start now. And yes you can gun down innocents for cash. No hookers tho.

Recently, a new trailer dropped for the upcoming Switch game , and it's left both Nintendo and Sega fans reeling in a heady mix of confusion and awe, all thanks to a brief podium shot featuring both a topless Wario and Doctor Eggman waving at the crowd in all their half-naked glory, as seen below. Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo Olympic Games is gonna be wild. Naturally, I'm sure you'll agree that the image is like a three dimensional Salvador Dali painting, layered intricately with a tangible sense of mystery and miasma. For starters, Dr. Eggman look like an exact replica of shirtless Kylo Ren, and begs the question of whether we're about to finally find out what Sonic's feet look like, given that neither of the pair are wearing any shoes. Then there's the question of Wario's nipples; most pertinently, where are they? Some eagle-eyed users think they've managed to spot them upon forensic inspection, but given that Nintendo famously bared Mario's nipples on full display in Super Mario Odyssey in , one wonders why his arch nemesis presumably of the same species, although definitely not human is comparatively teat-free. There's also the fact that neither Wario nor Eggman's bellybutton are anywhere to be seen, which invites even further questions about their nature of origin. And let's not forget the fact that this basically confirms shirtless Waluigi is on the way, which is sure to send the Nintendo community into a entirely separate meltdown of its own.
I hope this will change in the future - it would be difficult living a lifestyle like this in the long run. Life is a journey and going through it with a true partner, and a mutual respect for curiosity, is so far greatly rewarding. The most important thing is an open dialogue, as you say, and utmost respect for the other person. I'm on mobile and it isn't letting me post the URL. He did not like the idea of early morning seminary and he told me I was old enough to make my own choice to serve a mission, but he strongly advised against it.
