I am a games writer. Sounds cool, but sometimes I get stuck for a Pac-Man metaphor and it's really hard. (She/her.)

Hmmm, thinking about it, that might be why SPM is probably my least favourite PM.

Excellent soundtrack, probably the series' best.

Yeah, Gunvolt Burst is good! Ironically, if that had been THE Mighty No. 9, the franchise might still be alive.

1) You can hit (or run over) weaker enemies for instant coins/confetti 2) Coins go back into buying stuff, and the confetti is pretty important 3) Maybe I'm further along but no way are you winning every battle in one round even if you line things up. Paying off Toads is good.

One Paper Mario critic who was tearing his garments over The Origami King had a reply saying "Dude, you're 16. When did you even play Thousand Year Door?" I had to lol.

I don't get why Bug Fables has become the battle cry for the anti-Paper Mario crowd, in other words. Art style aside, it doesn't even strike me as a spiritual successor in the same way Bloodstained is to Castlevania, or [sigh] MN9 to Mega Man.

Not a slight against Bug Fables, it looks charming, but what makes it TTYD, exactly...? The presence of EXP? The more traditional RPG mechanics? That's fine, 99% of RPGs on the market have EXP and mechanics. TOK doesn't have EXP, but it has the Mario setting, characters, etc.

Much as I'd like a TTYD2, the main reason I play Paper Mario is it's such a fun, clever take on the Mario universe. That's why I'm confused by ppl who're like, "Fuck no XP in Paper Mario! I'm going to play Bug Fables! It's the TTYD I've been waiting for!" (1/2)

You think you've got it bad? I'm a Jew and I haven't seen a single gold coin from the salary I'm supposed to be receiving for controlling the media/protests/gentrification/weather/whatever.

If you've been asking how my mom's doing--thank you! Unfortunately, nothing great to report. She's still on a ventilator. Not responsive. Not improving. COVID not confirmed, but not being "ruled out." Just taking it day by day for now, because that's the 2020 way.

Refresher! I was laid off, and I'm in the market for a full-time job. I have extensive writing experience in tech, games, and entertainment, as well as several years of PR and communications experience in fine art. Here's my portfolio and CV. Let's chat!

(Also Martinet is just one of the nicest human beings I've ever met, I could never hate anything he does.)

I grew up with Cap Lou Mario and still love that portrayal, but I admittedly side-eye anyone who won't let go of '80s US "fanon" Mario stuff. If my nephew heard Lou Mario, he'd be confused AF. Most kids/teens would. Martinet Mario is their Mario, and that's OK.
