I’m back on a Mario kick this week. Wait, does Mario kick? I know he punches in Super Mario 64. Oh, wait, he kicks Koopa shells. First, I wanted to look at another Mario mini-movie, Mario to Yoshi no Daibouken … Continue reading

Wiggler Wednesday

I’ve discussed many enemies from the Super Mario franchise over the years, but I don’t think I’ve said that much about Wigglers, the giant caterpillars introduced in Super Mario World. Their thing is basically that they’re normally cute, yellow, and … Continue reading

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

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

He Blinded Me with Scienstein

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

The Search for More Mushrooms

Annabel, by L. Frank Baum – I noticed some definite similarities between this one and some of the other Baum non-fantasies that were included in Oz-Story Magazine. Like Sam Steele’s Adventures on Land and Sea, it has a boy who … Continue reading
