Egg Overload

I have a few video games I either want to start playing or get back into, but my game-playing time these days is taken up entirely by checking on my Animal Crossing: New Horizons island. It’s a pretty relaxing game, … Continue reading

Folded Follies

Paper Mario: The Origami King – When this first came out, there was a lot of talk about how it wasn’t being billed as a role-playing game. As with its two predecessors, you don’t get experience points from fighting battles, … Continue reading

Stand in the Place Where You Live

The Stand, by Stephen King – This was a long book, even more so since I read the unabridged edition, but I don’t know that I’ll have a long review for it. I did like it, and it’s pretty timely since … Continue reading

Oh Yeah, Mario Time!

I have pondered Mario’s age before, and mentioned how he’s officially supposed to be in his mid-twenties. But then, I grew up with the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, where Captain Lou Albano was playing Mario and Danny Wells Luigi in … Continue reading

Yikes, Spikes!

He Blinded Me with Scienstein

The video game I’ve actually been playing the most as of late is Breath of Fire 2, which I remember from the Super Nintendo. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it soon. I just got past the part … Continue reading

I Came in Like a Wrecking Crew

It’s weird how many obscure Mario-related games there are. I’d wanted to discuss a few Japan-only ones that I’ve seen footage of recently, but there were some connections there to games we did get here in the States that I’d … Continue reading

My wife has been playing Kid Icarus: Uprising, and there’s a character in it called Dark Pit. A little bit of research reveals that there’s also a Dark Samus and a Dark Link, or rather several Dark Links and Shadow … Continue reading

The Search for More Mushrooms

Douse the Bowser

I might as well finish up my write-ups on the Super Mario Bros. stories from Valiant Comics, and by that I mean the ones I could find scanned. I don’t think I’ve ever seen “Elect Mario for Man of the … Continue reading
