I just finished playing "Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time". My favourite of all characters is the Koopa reporter Kylie, especially when she shows up, when you least expect it (especially when she impersonated a shroom in the mother ship). The comical moments are the hungry Yooba (Giant Dinosaur Robot) which fancies a snack of a Yoshi and the part where Prince Bowser calls Baby Mario & Luigi "Stinky Babies" for eating all the Yoshi cookies. It's a pity you can't explore any more than Princess Peach's castle in the Present. Also I miss the Lightning power, Fire power and other abilities the Mario Bros. had in Superstar Saga. When there's only one type of bean to find, it's not nearly as fun to scavenge for them as it is with four bean types. Anyway I'll be proceeding to Bowser's Inside Story when I get a chance.

It's MAR10 again!

I'll probably look at the history book and listen to the soundtrack CD that came with Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition which I bought last November but haven't really done anything with.  I saw my brother struggle through Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels...no thanks, that's just ridiculously difficult.  And I've played the other games on there to death already, obviously.  So if I do play anything, it'll probably be some Mario Sports Mix as that's the newest game so I haven't unlocked much stuff in it yet.

I have more recently had a full experience with "Mario & Luigi - Bowser's Inside Story". I should have known that the spore bloating problem was a mere side terror in the storyline and not the main threat to affect the Mushroom Kingdom. This RPG uses the stylus and microphone often, especially when Bowser's a giant. Although this is not the first game where Bowser is a playable character, this the first time I've ever seen his full capabilities and traits and I was comfortable playing with him in the gameplay, even if he didn't jump like the Mario Bros. It's nice to see Bowser in a good mood and get on good terms with the block characters. I never thought I'd see Fawful back in business after his failure two prequels ago. My favourite character of them all is Starlow the star sprite. The name he gave himself 'Chippy' is very cute on him. Such gratitude has the princess got for Bowser in the end, she sends him a cake. If a new RPG sequel ever appears, I would really like it if the kooplings would appear and become playable characters for the first time.

Oops!  The day's almost over, and I haven't played any games at all!

I suppose later today would be a good time to get back to Mario Kart 7, which I probably haven't touched in a month...

Why does Mario Party 9 come out tomorrow and not today?

Mario Party 9 is more fun than I thought it would be.  I guess taking a few years off has made it feel fresh, not to mention the faster pacing by having everyone in a vehicle to reach a definite end.

I REALLY should get back to Mario Kart 7.  It's pretty much the only 3DS game I can easily play with my B button kind of messed up (as if I ever brake)...I'm getting someone to fix it soon.

Funny how the last post was about getting my 3DS fixed.  Last year I sent it in to Nintendo just shy of the one-year warranty being over, to get the B button fixed, and they sent me a new 3DS, and I got to enjoy the then-new Kid Icarus: Uprising on it.  I actually just sent it in again (since the replacement also came with a one-year warranty, which this is now just shy of) because of lack of audio on the left side when using earphones.

So yes, I am waiting for my 3DS again, though technically this is the next one.  A new 3DS each year...at least it's free.

It is MAR10 day again, but once again I'm busy today...if only I had my 3DS I'd play a bit of Mario Kart 7 - remember that?  I don't think I ever logged on to the VGMaps community at the same time as anyone else, though Sad - so maybe I'll find time to go do some challenges in New Super Mario Bros. U, I've been meaning to get back to doing those.

Oh, is it that time of the year again? I think I'll try and play some NSMBU today as well. I've been putting it off for the past month because of wanting to play it with my brother (who is away at college).

I love the 3DS, RPGs, and Mario games, so it's a wonder to me why I haven't played Paper Mario: Sticker Star or Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.  Not to mention that I usually pick up games the first day or week...  Since I'm passing right by a Best Buy today anyway, maybe I should remedy this, on yet another MAR10 Day.

Dream Team huh? Another portable game. I'd love to give this one a go.

Best Buy didn't have either when I stopped by today after work.  In fact their 3DS shelves are really barren, which is odd.  Either this means Best Buy doesn't care for the 3DS anymore (they didn't even seem to have Bravely Default or the new Professor Layton game!), or (hopefully) more likely, now that the 3DS is doing so well, that they sold a bunch of games and since I think their shipments come in on Tuesdays they should hopefully replenish tomorrow.

So, since Chapters was nearby, I used a gift card from Christmas to buy two versions of Jenga...one of them is the Space Invaders Collectors' Edition Jenga, and the other is the Donkey Kong Collectors' Edition Jenga.  They can be played as "normal" Jenga, but they also have alternate rules to fit with their theme - I'm guessing the Donkey Kong one might somehow resemble the original Donkey Kong game.  I guess this is the Mario game I'm playing today...

I spent today (well, after work) playing Chapter 1 of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Cheesy

Note that this is my first time ever playing this game! (I know, I know, I'm late to the party.)

Aww, that was today? Drats, I completely missed it. I don't think I did a single thing even remotely Mario-related. D:

(Funny how looking a little above that I see that a year ago I lament that Bravely Default wasn't available at Best Buy, and now, I'm currently playing it for the best ending (Chapter 7, lots of remixed boss battles)...  At what point did I start slipping?  It usually doesn't take me more than a year to finish a game, usually I finished games within the first week, or month of availability!  Though to be fair I picked up Bravely Default later and my brother was playing it first and I didn't seriously start it for quite a while because other games came up.  Tongue  It's still weird, though maybe I took too much pride in finishing games so soon in the first place.)

It's MAR10 again!  I don't know if I'll have time to play a Mario game when I get home, since I have a deacon's meeting tonight (yes, I very recently became a deacon at my church, taking time away from things like games).  Since I got a Virtual Boy last year, and have eight out of its library of fourteen games, maybe I'll play something obscure like Mario Clash.  I was never really good at it but then again I haven't played it much, might as well use today as an excuse to try again.
