Multiplayer looks fun.



Why is there bump-mapping on incorporeal beings?

Actually, are Boos incorporeal? You can spin-jump off of them in SMW. I forget, can you freeze them in NSMBW/U? Also some of them wear/hold clothes and accessories in PM and TTYD. So yeah, maybe they are solid, mass-having things.

I haven't played much of Epic Yarn yet, but from the little I played, it seemed to do a pretty good job of channeling the spirit of Yoshi's Story (which is a better game than most people give it credit for). There's definitely potential here, and not being a direct sequel could help mitigate some of the Yoshi's Island DS effect (something I'm still worried about for Dark Moon).

But in MLPIT, he doesn't seem aware. Then again, he may not even realize he's in the past. (Sorry, I don't have a quote/source.) Which begs the question, given Baby Bowser's strong resemblance to Bowser Jr. (in MLPIT, anyway), why doesn't Bowser mistake his younger self for his son?
Yeah, that always bothered me. I'm inclined to think that Baby Bowser's character design in PiT was just a mistake or something, and that Baby Bowser didn't actually look exactly like Bowser Jr. Otherwise, we'd pretty much have to presume that the present events of PiT took place before Bowser Jr. was born, and unless there was some kind of magic or accelerated growth or something (or Koopas have very different rates of aging than humans), that would pretty much necessitate a gap of about a decade in between LM and SMS, which doesn't seem to be the case (although the fact that the "King Boo" in SMS is not at all the same one as in LM certainly helps things).

Hid a Like recommendation for Suicide Girls on Facebook. My "Other" reason: "Don't rub it in."
Yes; rubbing it out tends to work better.

Quote from: E. Gadd, Present
Heh heh heh. Now, now, no need to get your leather lathered. There've been new time holes popping up here faster than toast on Sunday morning!
[source]

Possible interpretations:
  • One of the days of the week in the Mushroom World is called Sunday, a name that they came up with independently, named after their own sun (or suns -- the Angry Sun and the sun in Flower Fields come to mind. Brighton and Twila from Mario Party 6 also suggest that there may be something resembling sun and moon worship at some level). This explanation can also apply to any mentions of Mondays (moon); any other day would require more explanation, as they are named after specific Earth deities.
  • Gadd is from Earth, or spent time on Earth at some point, and picked up some Earth slang. Perhaps the Gadd in the past studied the time holes and was able to use the same concept to develop a method of travel between Earth and the Mushroom World (with the timeline modifying itself along the way, as it is prone to do in PiT).
  • Translation convention. Gadd actually used a word referring to a Mushroom day of the week, but Nintendo translated it to an Earth day for our convenience.
  • For one reason or another, the Mushroom World has the same seven-day week as us, with the same names, but the numbers and dates are different.

Very nice. Much less fanficcy than my timeline attempts, I must admit.

Any ideas on where the present/future part of Yoshi's Island DS (Adult Bowser traveling back in time with Kamek to kidnap the Star Children in the past) might go? I can't remember if there were any hints about that ingame.

I think they heard my complaints about the game not having textures and they didn't quite get it.

You'd think Yoshis would have the decency to clean themselves, like cats.
