Further Off Topic...
Or "Some MORE Things That Have Been on My Mind"
This rant won't seem very connected. It's a bunch of unconnected Mario thoughts I've been having, strung together badly. I'm gonna talk angrily and passionately about topics that really shouldn't matter to anyone, but thats what ranting's about! Here we go...
Where's the public acceptance for Paper Mario? For months before it came out people were raving about how it would be "too kiddy" and no fun without Square support. Yet now that this great game is out, the praise for it has been rather muted. Everyone is looking towards the games for Game Boy Advance and GameCube without looking at the great games we have out now. It's sad, really.
Speaking of Paper Mario, what the heck were they thinking when they wrote Luigi's dialogue? "I know you can't take me along... I don't even want to go adventuring anymore." Obviously Nintendo and company have not heard the cry of the
fans. Nothing short of Luigi's Mansion as a launch game on GameCube will make up for a faus pas of this magnitude.
Speaking of Luigi, he STILL ISN'T in SM64. Get on with your lives
How many times do I have to tell people that you can't get a "100" on the title screen in Super Mario World? Why didn't Nintendo just add four more exits and make it a nice round number? Why must I reply to mail after mail on this subject nearly 10 years after the game came out? Why, why, why?!
Do you realize that Sonic and Mario will soon both be in seperate Game Boy Advance games? AIEEEE! Isn't that the first sign of the apocalypse? Don't be surprised if you see a rain of fire and brimstone in the weather forecast soon.
In other "mascot switcheroo news", isn't it odd that the next Crash Bandicoot game is being planned for the Microsoft X-Box. Mario has become the last great system-consistent mascot, staying only on Nintendo systems for over 15 years now. (CD-i and pre-NES systems don't count). Wow!
Guys, I'm flattered that you want to help with the site, but I really don't need any more staff members at this time. Unless you have a revolutionary new section idea, don't bother sending me a job application. I'll be looking for new
people shortly, but until then stop asking me for jobs.
Wasn't Paper Mario hillarious? I mean, for a Mario game, it had some seriously funny parts, especially if you're familiar with the Mario series (as readers of this site should be). I laughed out loud a few times while playing it.
OK, let me get this straight. The Goomba family in Goomba Village is good, but all the other goomba's are bad. Same with the Koopa Troopa's; some good, some bad. So why haven't we seen any bad Yoshi's yet. Can't you just see it now: Yoshi vs. Dark Yoshi! That'd be great! (BTW, Boshi doesn't count)
Who the heck is Kammy Koopa? We want Kamek!
Will there ever be an original Mario game on Game Boy Advance. So far, remakes of SMB2, SMB3, Super Mario Kart, Wario Land and Yoshi's Story have been announced. Come on! Why not just buy a Super Nintendo?
Boy, this turned out to be quite Paper Mario centered. Could be because I just finished it, or maybe cuz it just had so much STUFF in it. Oh well. See ya in a few.
