Nah. Evil not good -- creepy, perhaps. Mysterious. Enchanting. Or something...

Yeah. That is REAL and is coming.

I had a web link to an info I can't find it. It was on Singer's "What's New" page, but I can't find Singer.

I own the CD it's on...

"White Knuckle Scoring" by Nintendo. A compilation CD with about 1 good song -- Ignorance is Bliss. Performed by Jellyfish.

You can actually buy it... go to some of the used CD places on-line.

I guess this whole topic depends on what you mean by "Mario games"... it seems that people are unhappy with the "cuteness" of recent Mario games (there is no such word as "kiddish", folks).

Some recent Mario spin-off games have been extremely "cute" -- Yoshi's Story comes to mind. On the other hand, Mario Golf and Super Smash Bros. (which I see as a Mario spin-off) have a mixture of graphical styles. Mario Golf is, in fact, quite realistic, but with cartoon-style characters. The last _real_ Mario game we've had is Super Mario 64, which was hardly in the same genre as Super Mario Bros./World.

Mario games are designed in a certain style, with characters that are supposed to _look_ like they are animated. That, in and of itself, does not result in an "overly cute" game -- if it did, all animated films would be "kids' stuff", which is insane. Mario isn't a realistic human, but a cartoon character of sorts.

Mario games may well become more realistic, and thus may change in design somewhat. For some examples of more mature level design, take a look at the Ghost House level of Super Mario 64; it's a typical Mario game level, but it is designed with a much moodier atmosphere. Most of the Bowser levels are also much more "moody". The final Bowser battle in SMW2: Yoshi's Island is NOT overly cute, but even somewhat dramatic. The only "overly cute" game I've seen yet is Yoshi's Island, which seems to have been designed with that goal in mind.

Anyway... there is NO such word as "kiddish", nor "funner". Besides, even if a game seems "too cute" for you, what does it matter as long as the game itself is still FUN? That's the mistake many make... "if it isn't graphically violent, dark, moody, and filled with sexual overtones, it isn't any good"; the same thing happened to movies in the late 60's through today, and the same mistake many gamers made in purchasing the PSX.

Go to and download it there.

Forum Games / One Word Stories
« on: September 16, 2003, 01:07:24 PM »
Ok. Here are the rules. Each person adds one word to the story, and ONLY one word. We continue until someone (staff) ends it, or we all give up.

When you are adding your word, copy ALL the previous entry and enter that into your own. Watch my example to follow.

Site Discussion / Interviews - Voice of Mario, etc.
« on: June 17, 2003, 11:44:09 AM »
David here...

There is a SLIGHT possibility we'll be doing some interviews in the near future with various people in the world of something or another. Anyway, questions for you readers...

Who would be good to interview, and what should we ask them?

Possibilities so far include Charles Martinet (voice of Mario) um.. and Toad Girl (if you don't know, don't worry).

Yeah, so I'm not the most impressive interview guy. If you have a better idea and some industry connections, lemme know.

Site Discussion / TMK Reader Poll -- Age?
« on: June 16, 2003, 05:13:01 AM »
Greetings, time for another informal TMK reader poll. Just wondering what the typical age around here is. Feel free to respond with your name, age, and sex -- for all 3 women here.

Actually, the number of women is increasing, it seems. Now if we just had some around my age...

Mario Chat / Re: Mario games beat?
« on: August 01, 2000, 04:01:16 PM »
First of all, there is NO Super Mario RPG 2...

But I have beaten...



SM64, MK64, MP, MP2, SSB, YS



There may be more... that is a rough estimate.

Game Help / Re: Master Hand Code?
« on: August 01, 2000, 02:49:41 AM »
No, there IS a Game Shark code that lets you play as The Master Hand (and Metal Mario, and the fighting Polygon team guys, and giant DK)... it's buggy, though. I had it somewhere...

And I know it works, as I did it myself. Master Hand's attacks are VERY delayed, though.

Forum Games / Re: The RPG thing so far...
« on: August 01, 2000, 02:07:33 AM »
Er, I'd join, I suppose. What's going on? Who can clue me in???

Is Mario still taken? I can do a lovely Mario.

Mario Chat / Vote for Mario
« on: August 26, 2002, 11:14:26 AM »
This is a command. Go to now and vote for Mario.

That is all.

P.S. If Mario wins, I will be sure to get some Mario Sunshine audio on WTMK.
