    Holy moley. Big Magma! I did not expect you to materialise like that. I thought you, Metal and Monaware had long since hung up your boots. Always a pleasure! @CM30 Well, I certainly wasn't referring to politics. Haha! Oh boy... No, I was comparing video game culture to other creative interests...

    I'd like to make it perfectly clear that despite my past troubles here I never held myself in higher regard to anyone. I know I'm a bit different and very much detached from online game culture. People tend to find that either jarring or refreshing, but there's a very good reason for it...

    I'm relieved to hear that, Glow! Hang on to that sucker! Just a a little writers tip for any fellow... "ink slingers" here: If you're going to stay up late doing creative writing and gargling caffeine, DON'T suddenly switch to general conversation - with actual people. Your prose tends to look...

    Whoa! Free tickets to the show? I couldn't possibly impose.... then again, perhaps I could? You know, I always fancied the idea of working at the Melbourne Show. It's so neat that you were involved with the wool judging. Wow. Such happy memories going there as a kid. You know, I've had this...

    The, uh... "famous" Angler didn't want to stir up a ruckus. Just wanted to drop by and see how you're all grappling the Covid crisis. I had to wait for an opportune moment - privacy is still an issue for my family. But hey! It's swell to hear from you lot again! I'll just remove my hat for any...

    Wow... What a ramshackle place. The days I spent here seem so far away now. When I look at it today, the WarioForums feels like..... like a small, empty old clubhouse sitting on the edge of a quiet field. Its timbers are groaning in the gentle breeze as an old sycamore buffets its walls; the...

    What a perfectly delicious gesture. Thank-you for writing that, Shokora, it made my evening. You know, I can't imagine why you'd write that after my failure to deliver those goods, all that time ago. If you're still in Melbourne I hope you're staying safe and squared away. My family and I are...

    What was everyone's first reaction to Wario in Brawl?

    Wario's inclusion in the Smash Bros series remains my biggest disappointment in all of video game history, and it all started with that trailer. This comes from someone who spent all the years since the original N64 game dreaming up wonderful ways to include the character and his world. It was...

    Wario Land 4 2

    DecapAttack music in a Wario game actually fits, due to the oddball theme of both. What a pleasant surprise from a 90's childhood relic. @tahutoa What do you know of PigmaskColonel? I saw that you'd made a playlist and written a little piece on his work. I wasn't aware he'd closed his...

    Fixing Wario In Smash Bros

    That bloody article is STILL around? "Why Does Wario Fart?" contains a lot of false information and fabricated assumptions from the writer. It does contain some truth, but it's a lazy, poorly researched essay that brainwashes fans who don't know any better. I was cringing when I first read it...

    What's the best final boss fight in the Wario Land series?

    Demon Head is still my pick of the litter. No other final boss gave me more anxiety or difficulty in the Wario platformer series (especially his second encounter in the secret Hard Mode). I find him to be the most intriguing final boss of the series. The game's backstory never mentions this...

    What is your favorite Wario's Power Up?

    King Dragon Wario from VB Wario Land is formidable, however I do like Bull Wario just as much. The horned viking-style helmet befits Wario's looting and plundering (although thankfully he leaves out the raping).

    What's that face in the WL4 Sound Room entrance?

    Well, he enters the chamber by sliding down a giant stone tongue. He never acknowledges the eyes, but then, I wouldn't expect that kind of detail on the map screen in a game like this (maybe in an RPG or a point and click game where you can interact with the background). I doubt they have any...

    Thoughts on Wario's Woods?

    Tricky to say whether it's intentional, but the Wario's Woods games were from R&D1, and the WarioWare team are very proud of their heritage since they are always referencing R&D1 products in WarioWare (you only need to play the first game to see a veritable museum of it).

    Kimchi is a popular Korean food made of salted fermented vegetables like cabbage and radish, swimming in seasoning. Basically, it's rotting zombified vegetables in ooze. It's so vile and potent it stinks out your house, attaches itself to you, and pollutes anything in your fridge that isn't...

    If I were cast down to hell and had to choose my dinner from a set menu, the main course would be a large vat full of... urghhh..... kimchi. (And of course, the reason I'm in hell to begin with is for murdering my little brother who eats the stuff daily and turns the fridge into a leaky gas...

    General Gaming social thread

    Sounds like it was quite the labour of love/passion project for Night Dive. I don't think I've ever seen you recommend a game without a hint of reserve or playful cynicism before now, so it must be a keeper!

    Do you like Wario-Man?

    I would not call myself a fan of Wario-Man though he's a great vehicle for laughs. He represents the silliness and insanity of WarioWare exclusively, which is why I think he'd be very out of place in a Wario Land title (different style of Wario). A great mascot for WarioWare, if nothing else.

    Well, I just finished my breakfast and decided today is the day I'll start my new master file in it. I'll just stagger through it at a leisurely pace and enjoy the ride. Such a charming little game to have over tea or coffee when I take a break from course work. All those blood-thirsty reptiles...
