So I finished Super Paper Mario over the weekend (Well, I mean, I completed the story part, but I’m guessing I can still go back for the Pit of 100 Trials and Tiptron and maps and stuff). So sad! I mean, for a platform game it got pretty bleak and the main character was a total nihilist… or was he? Was he not, in fact, simply Super Emo? I mean, he’s got a top hat, fer cryin’ out loud. And he covers one eye when he’s thinking about how sad everything is and how he, like, just wants everything to not exist anymore.
Still, kudos for a Mario game having character ambiguity – Dimentio in particular is very difficult to work out – and, most importantly, Bowser as a playable character. Rarr! Fire!
