Mailbag by Deezer


Got something you want us to answer next week? Send it to

    I have a couple questions:
    1. What's with the caricatures?
    2. I want to see a pic of an x-box controller so I can point and laugh. Okay, that's not a question.

Deezer: I have a couple answers:
1. That's what J.J. thinks we look like.
2. And there is certainly a lot to laugh at! But I don't have a picture handy. Check or something.

    Here's some questions.....
    1. Do you guys like Sonic? I've always liked him, and now he's on a Nintendo system, Whoa! Watch out Mazza...
    2. Do you know anything about the European release of Gamecube?
    3. Do you think Super Mario bros.3 is the best Mario game ever? I certainly do.
    4. Why do you so rudely refer to Peach's, erm...figure?

Deezer: Here's some answers...
1. Mazza?
2. NOE is expected to reveal the launch date in January.
3. Either that or Super Mario World, depending on my mood.
4. I have never. In public, that is.

    When are you gonna update the mailbag. :)

Deezer: Right now.

    I have a question in Mario Kart Super Circut.
    I've been reading about these new Extra Tracks, I want to know if this is true or not, I've seen Extra Track appear once, but i don't know how to find it.
    Please help!

Deezer: I'm too lazy to double-check, but I think it's the L button that switches from regular to Extra tracks on the track selection screen.

    TMK guys (and J.J.),
    Your list of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening cameos:

    Mario (as Tarin)
    Chain Chomp (as BowWow)
    Wart (as Mamu)
    Yoshi (as the Yoshi Doll)
    Croco (as Sale)

    Your list isn't anywhere near complete! What about the bloobers in the side-scrolling underwater levels? There are pokeys in the desert in the SE corner of the island. And you're stuck on level 3? Why don't you ask David? In one mailbag I asked him, "duz da deez man like zelda games?" and he responded, and may I quote, "I, David, do" colon slash uppercase p [:-P]
    -A gut who bought a GBA and didn't get a GBA game until 3 months after

Deezer: I haven't finished the game yet... be patient. :P
As for your previous question: Even though I suck at Zelda games, I like them.

    Hey whatsup TMK,
    I got a weird mario reference from the show "The Amazing Race" on CBS. This guy named Frank said "Its on like Donkey Kong!" I'm not sure what he meant, but its a reference all the same, right?
    Great Site!!!

Deezer: Wish I knew what Frank meant by it, but it's a reference all the same.

    I recently heard about a possible Mario cameo. I heard about it when I was reading about the game StarTropics 2: Zoda's Revenge for the NES (released back in 1994). Basic plotline is that you have to travel through time to recover artifacts. One of the places you visit is Italy. And evidently, there is a pizza delivery person there who resembles Mario, and rides on the back of a koopa. Coincidence? Unlikely. I haven't played it myself, so I'm not sure how true this is. Have you heard about this before?

Deezer: I'll look into it. Thanks.

    Hi. This is my first time writing. Great site, blah blah blah. My question: What is that picture on the WTMK page from? My apologies if this question has been asked/answered in a previous mailbag.

Deezer: It's from the intro to the Bandai Satellaview version of SMB3.

    OK...I found out all the players, stages and items for SSBM by visiting the Japanese SSBM page and reviewing lots of over stuff.

    Confirmed players that you missed> Marth*, Roy*, Ganondorf, Dr. Mario, Pichu, Mewtwo, Young Link and Mr. Game & Watch, Falco

Deezer: We missed them because I wrote the preview before all the info was revealed. But thanks.

Deezer: Okay, this is like the fourth mailbag that has a link to that site now.

    I found a reference to Mario in the December '93 issue of National Geographic World. Do you wanna see it?

Deezer: Sure.

    Well...if there isn't a question, I don't expect an answer... or do I ask the question?


    First of all, I'm making my own Link's Awakening strategy guide.
    Second of all, nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!
    Third of all, isn't "Withywindle" a GREAT word? It's the name of a river in "The Lord of the Rings."
    Fourth of all, I still don't have a GameCube!!! But I want one.
    Fifth of all, is it true that Marin is one of the trophies in SSBM?

First of all, how does this concern a Mario site like us?
Second of all, that sounds like something from Harry Potter.
Third of all, "Withywindle" also sounds like something from Harry Potter.
Fouth of all, get one already!
Fifth of all, I think so.

    How come the ESRB rating system change K-A to E?
    -a puzzled Vidgmchtr

Deezer: I can't remember.

    1.) I want a definite answer from all of ya- Who iz better: mario or luigi?!
    2.) David Dayton said in a previous mailbag dat he owns a dreamcast... so i wuz wunderin: has he played dead or alive 2 and if so, did he like it?
    3.) What iz ur opinion on mario sunshine? Will it be the SM64 sequel we've longed for, or another spin off, or what?!?
    4.) Do u think Mario and Sonic will ever really star in the same game?
    5.) Do u like Sonic at all?
    6.) Who iz ur favorite Street Fighter (if any)? and....
    7.) This one's 2 David Dayton: As a dreamcast owner, have u ever had a problem with it where ur playin a game, and all of a sudden, it acts like u reset it and goes to the dreamcast main menu thing (The one with the controller, VMU, and all that)? It happened to mine, and I (in a fit of anger, and using the universal masculine repair method...) hit it really really hard. But before I did, it made noise and stuff whenever that happened, and now, it seems to be my luck that it gives out rite when i need to save. Any thoughts/responses? Or where can I go to get it fixed?
    Thanx a lot, Peace...

1.) Mario, in my opinion.
2.) He claims to have not played it.
3.) I think it's going to be great! I hope. We need another great, true Mario title.
4.) No, I don't.
5.) Yes, I do.
6.) Ryu. Yes, because he's Japanese.
7.) By the time I got to this question, David was unavailable for comment. But one of my friends had a Dreamcast, and I never saw that happen. Sounds like something more than just bad luck, though.
