Because i hate purists, and those who exaggerate the value of a Mario plot

August 21, 2007

Spoil city.

First of all, the Fire Flower and Super Star items are coming back. Mario will be able to shoot fireballs for the first time since his jump into the 3D arena. No word on whether Mario will be wearing his traditional fire-tossing garb.

Also, as far as the story goes, Mario, Peach and gang were watching a passing comet when Bowser crashes the party. After waking up (we don’t know why Mario goes unconscious), Mario is confronted by Rosetta and asked to help. The story will then take place over 6 different zones, with 40 different galaxies to explore.

If this doesn’t affect you in the slightest, welcome to the club. Why WiiFanboy made a big deal out of this, besides their name, i don’t know. It’s goddamn Mario. Here’s another spoiler which i exclusively obtained from the security guard of the R*Zone at Times Square: Mario will jump on a bunch of turtles and/or bullets, yet lose absolutely no weight. Put that in your pipe and warp it.

    “Mario will jump on a bunch of turtles and/or bullets”

    You bastard. Ruin it for us why don’t you.

    Wii Fanboy mentioned it because Weblogs Inc. keeps them on a punishing quota of daily posts and there is fuck-all going on in the Wii space right now. So they are desperate for any detail they can grab on to.

    Did you see the one last week where they mentioned an ancient quote from Bob Hoskins re: the Super Mario Bros movie? From 14 YEARS AGO? Yeah.

    HAAA! You serious?! I read that on Kotaku too, though.

    Man, that explains all the filler bullshit about “DS Daily” and “Wii Warm Up”, which day in and day out ask the readers brain-busting, 2-lines-long essay questions like “Do you like your Wii?” and “Would you play games on your Wii?”. Something to that effect.

    Hmmm… from the picture, it looks like we Wii owners are going to get some Bioshock-esque underwater pretty graphics, too! I wonder if we will see the difference?
